Primary School

PE and Sports Premium

To see our most recent report on Sport Premium Funding, please see the document below.  Further supporting information can be found below, and previous reports can be found at the bottom of this page.

Catherine Wayte Primary School Curriculum Rationale

It is for schools to decide how the PE and Sport funding is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made to enhance PE in school. Schools can choose how they use the funding, for example to:

  • hire specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers during PE lessons

  • support and involve the least active children by running after-school sports clubs and holiday clubs

  • provide resources and training courses in PE and sport for teachers

  • run sport competitions

  • run sports activities with other schools


The staff and governors at Catherine Wayte are fully supportive of initiatives to promote healthy lifestyles. We are a bronze level ‘Healthy School’ and have achieved ‘Healthy Schools Plus’. We hold awards for Participation in Sport. Each class has two timetabled PE sessions and, because of limited hall availability, we make use of the outdoor areas too. Classes take part in a range of PE activities each year including dance, gymnastics, games and athletics. Y6 classes enjoy outdoor adventurous activities on their residential. We have school teams for netball, football and tag rugby. We often enter other competitions including cross country and quad kids. All children take part in our annual Sports Day and Y5 classes have an inter-school sports event each summer. The PE lead organises activities between both year 2 classes to promote competition and personal achievement.  Extra-curricular activities are available after school on most days and these include: Success Martial Arts, Teresa’s School of Dance, a rotation of other sports provided by Fortius and various clubs led by school staff.


The Physical Education Policy for Catherine Wayte Primary School is designed to support a high quality, broad and balanced PE curriculum that meets the needs of all pupils throughout Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key stage 2.


Our school believes that Physical Education should be experienced in a safe and supportive environment. The PE curriculum aims to develop pupils’ physical competence and confidence, and their ability to use these to perform in a range of activities. Physical Education provides opportunities for pupils to excel, be creative, competitive and to be confident to encounter challenges as individuals and in groups and teams.


Through promoting a ‘healthy environment’ where children are encouraged to participate in quality PE lessons and extra -curricular sports clubs, we aim to contribute to the London 2012 Olympic Legacy.  At Catherine Wayte we are committed to helping pupils discover their aptitudes, abilities and preferences, and how to make choices about getting involved in lifelong physical activity. 


Our school is striving to meet the DCSF National School Sport Strategy Target 2010, for all children to participate in a minimum of 2 hours within school and also 2 hours beyond the curriculum. At Catherine Wayte we offer a range of extra-curricular activities for children to participate in at lunch time and after school. We have links with Fortius, as well as with local hockey, netball, football, rugby, swimming, cricket and dance clubs. In addition to weekly lessons, children have access to extra-curricular P.E opportunities. Children are informed of these and have opportunities to attend.


Furthermore, each year group has their own play time activity equipment box, and staff and Young Leaders encourage children to be involved in various forms of physical activity at break and lunchtimes. The school’s running track is accessed at playtimes and lunchtimes.  Cross curricular active learning is also encouraged where possible.


Our School Physical Activity Policy supports our commitment to encourage active and healthy lifestyles.


We aim to:

  • Provide high quality opportunities for pupils to be creative, competitive and to face up to different challenges as individuals, in groups, and in teams.

  • Develop pupils’ physical competence and confidence in a range of activities, enabling them to excel, become skillful and intelligent performers.

  • Promote physical development and provide opportunities for children to improve their fundamental movement skills, which are balance, agility, co-ordination and control of the body in action.

  • Develop the ability to plan, perform, and evaluate actions, ideas and performances to improve their quality and effectiveness.

  • Develop pupils’ ability to respond to a variety of situations, to select and apply skills, tactics and compositional ideas to suit activities that need different approaches and ways of thinking.

  • Promote positive attitudes towards active and healthy lifestyles enabling pupils to make informed choices about the importance of exercise.

  • Contribute to pupils’ social and emotional development, by developing their self-confidence and self-esteem and to develop social, moral, spiritual and cultural development.

  • Develop personal qualities such as commitment, fairness, tolerance, and a concern for others.

  • Develop personal and social competence and the necessary skills to manage success in competitive and co-operative situations; to cope with losing, and to retain a proper sense of perspective in competition.

  • Develop an appreciation of safe practice.

  • Develop an enjoyment and positive attitude towards Physical Education and Sport.


At Catherine Wayte Primary School, we use the Sport Premium funding to enhance and extend provision for sport. Our action plan supports us in our aim.


Aims of the Action Plan:

  • To develop the competence, creativity, performance and healthy lifestyle of all the children in our school.

  • To ensure that all staff have high quality professional competence throughout all areas of the PE curriculum.

  • To offer a broad curriculum that inspires the children to participate in a wide range of physical activities.

  • To give the children the confidence to compete against other schools.

  • To create an appropriate and challenging environment that will enable every child to fulfil their potential.

  • To make links with local sports clubs and the community to increase participation outside school.

  • To raise the profile of PE throughout the school.
