Provision of PE was, inevitably, affected by lockdowns and the restrictions placed on schools during the academic year.  PE and  physical activity opportunities were provided, both to key worker and vulnerable children who were in school and to those children being educated remotely. 

The school continues to buy into the Real PE scheme and some online CPD for new staff was provided during the 2020-2021 academic year.  Moving forwards, the scheme will be extended so that the gym, dance and play elements are introduced to children at the school as well as the PE elements.

Last year, the school moved its emphasis from using the PE grant to directly provide specialist teaching to pupils to training staff in the Real PE scheme.  All staff have received training in the use of Real PE and have access to a wide range of resources to support teaching and learning in the subject.  The PE specialist has also provided additional support and training over the course of the year.

As a school we are very well resourced for PE equipment and are able to teach a wide range of sports with enough equipment for a class of pupils to be fully engaged during the lesson.   The Sports Grant is used to maintain this stock of equipment.

A small amount of sports funding is also used to maintain a stock of equipment for use at playtimes and lunchtimes, allowing children to practise skills and encouraging them to be active and engaged during playtimes and lunchtimes.

Extra-curricular provision at the school is also popular with football clubs, a dance club, a yoga club, a gym club and two netball clubs.  Additionally, there is a Forest School Club which operates twice a week and involves children being active and outside in all weather. Currently, most clubs are unavailable due to the restrictions related to COVID-19 but we hope to resume clubs as soon as possible.

Around 40% of children are involved in clubs outside of school hours and many of these have been directed to out of school hours activity through involvement in PE or extra-curricular activities organised by the school.  Each year we run a number of taster sessions for different sports and try to make sure that there is an opportunity for children to follow up the experience by going to a local club. 

We continued the link with Badminton England to provide high quality coaching for children in KS2, with the potential for pupils with a particular interest to be directed on to clubs in the local area. 


The provisional budget for the financial year 2021-2022 is as follows:

REAL PE subscription fee                                 £   4, 189.00

All weather surface                                         £ 20, 478.00

Sports Leader training for Y5/6                       £       374.00

Unallocated                                                     £   5, 107.00             

                                                                            £ 41, 686.00


How we plan to spend the money in 2021-2022

A significant shift in the use of the PE grant is the move to using the REAL PE scheme.  The scheme approaches PE from a number of angles and focuses on six strands: creative, physical, cognitive, social, personal and health and fitness.  All staff will be trained in the use of the scheme which has already been modelled in the previous academic year, and will have access to the resources and assessment materials.  More information can be found at specialist PE teacher will continue to spend some time in school to support the implementation of the REAL PE scheme and to train staff in the use of the further units of Real Dance and Real Gym.

We will continue to take part in the Lewes area competitions and festivals which offer an exciting opportunity for pupils to engage in formal competitions.

We will continue to offer taster sessions for a variety of sports and particularly those where local clubs offer a pathway to children taking up the sport more regularly. 

The stock of PE equipment will continue to be maintained with a focus on high-quality equipment for both curriculum PE sessions and for general use in the playground and at Breakfast Club. 

We will also be buying a stock of equipment for the Y6 sports leader to use to deliver the sessions with younger pupils.  The Sports leader sessions will take place in a new facility being built from accrued PE Sports grant money and which will be used exclusively for delivering sports leader sessions.  The children are trained in Sports leader skills in Y5 to allow the children to deliver the sessions in Y6. 

Following the easing of restrictions, inter-school sport competitions and activities are once again able to take place and we are buying into the services of an administrator who arranges the football and netball leagues, cross country tournaments, District Sport competitions and further activities so that children from across the school can take part in organised competitive sport.

We will also be inviting a number of sports specialists into school to deliver sessions to give children a taste of different sports.  There is an emphasis on prioritising sports that can be followed up at a local club.
