PE Grant and Sports Funding Statement 2016-2017


Total PE and Sport Funding this academic year 2016-2017 is £9870. This funding is now guaranteed until 2020 and is ring fenced. School expenditure will be £16150. 


Brief overview of PE and sport provision in the school:

The school provides all pupils with the full entitlement of two hours high quality PE a week. This is delivered through two, 1 hour lessons. Units of work are blocked for each half term.


* Foundation stage: The lessons are structured at 2 sessions per week aimed at physical development. These are approximately 45 minutes and follow the    Early Learning Goals.

* Key Stage 1: 2 hours of high quality PE with a class teacher.

* Key Stage 2: 2 hours of high quality PE with a class teacher.


 The children in Year Groups Four to Six go swimming at Thornton Heath Leisure Centre. All swimming sessions will be taught by a swimming instructor with the support of the class teacher. All children in Key Stage 2 also complete a bikeability course.


Our school has recently partnered with the Crystal Palace Football Club Foundation to support the delivery of high quality teaching and learning in PE and wider sports provision. We employ a full time qualified sports coach to support teachers’ subject knowledge and assessment. In addition, the coach delivers skills training at playtime, lunchtimes and after school activities as well as supporting pupils in reading and mathematics.  In order to expand our pupils’ experience of different sports, we have a half termly ‘Sports Focus’ which includes: tag rugby, athletics, netball, cricket.


Children identified as being skilled in a specific sport also attend sporting events organised by the Croydon Schools Sports Partnership eg. Football tournaments, Gymnastics, Quick stick hockey, Tag Rugby, Athletics etc. Being successful in these events, could lead to children taking part in School Games.


Rockmount Primary School after school sports provision offers a variety of sports clubs throughout the year. Currently, this includes: football, karate, judo, contemporary dance, ballet, netball and multi-skills.


We will also have a variety of Intra-school festivals throughout the year: Multi-skills, Gymnastics and Intra-Athletics. The Headteachers oversee all sport provision. There is also a governor who is responsible for liaising with the school over the PE funding.
