Sports Grant




Physical Education and School sports is an area where all pupils can enjoy and achieve, building on a platform for life long physical activity in an environment where everyone can succeed and thrive. 

At West Tytherley, the school sports funding will enable us to improve the quality & provision of physical education (PE) and sport for the benefit of all children.



At West Tytherley, our main objectives for improvement are:

  • to increase pupil participation in sporting activities in school, after-school clubs and within the wider cluster
  • to ensure that all children can access and enjoy a wider range of sporting activities
  • to offer all children a varied programme of sporting opportunities that develop self-esteem, competitive spirit and team work. 
  • to increase the use of specialist coaching to enhance the quality of teaching of physical education and provide supportive staff development.
  • to improve the range of resources available to children, to enhance provision in games/PE and at playtimes.

Impact Statement for 2017/18

  • Embedded assessment has enabled us to support and challenge individual children.
  • Provision at lunchtime targeted those pupils who were unable to attend after-school activities
  • Achievement of the Bronze Sports Mark – aiming for Gold within the coming year.
  • Tailored extra-curricular activities during lunchtimes to target all children, to increase participation and motivation
  • Embedded daily mile across the school to increase concentration and stamina for all pupils
  • Highly motivated team that take part in inter-school competitions
  • Established a Play Leaders initiative to train children in leading small group games at lunchtime.  This, in turn, has helped to increase the quality of play and social skills – as well as the leadership skills for our play leaders.
  • Promoted active playtimes for all children through our ‘Sports Ambassadors’ programme.  Older children have developed their leadership skills and offered greater opportunities for others to get involved in team games.
  • Held a highly successful ‘Active and Healthy celebration’ week involving professional coaches to deliver a range of exciting sport opportunities and activities.
