This Year's PE and Sports Events

Take a look at some photos of the brilliant PE and sporting competitions and events that we have been involved in this year. 

School Vision for PE and School Sport


To support children to become active, enthusiastic and healthy young people through high quality PE and School Sport.


PE Curriculum


In Physical Education children take part in a wide range of both indoor and outdoor activities. Through these activities children are able to develop their fundamental movement skills, such as agility, balance and co-ordination, but they also have the opportunity to improve their personal, social and emotional development and learn about good sportsmanship. At Whitecote children learn that being active is fun and that it is important to take part in an active lifestyle. Children take part in 2 hours of PE every week which take place both indoors, in our school hall, as well as outdoors on the playground and playing fields. Years 4 and 5 also take part in weekly swimming lessons which are held at Bramley Baths, where the programme includes water confidence, safety and stroke technique.


In Key Stage 1 children take part in dance, games, athletics and gymnastics.


In Key Stage 2 children take part in dance, games, swimming, athletics and gymnastics.

Sports Premium Funding


From September 2013 schools have received additional funding to improve the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Schools receive £8000 plus £5 per pupil for pupils aged 5-11. Our school received a total of £9560. The aims of this funding are as follows:

  • To improve the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
  • To raise the profile of PE and sport across the school
  • To increase staff's knowledge, skills and confidence in teaching PE and sport
  • To broaden the range of sports and activities that children experience
  • To increase participation in competitive sport.


Below are details of our PE action plan and how we intend to spend this year's funding. As well as reports about how we have spent this funding in previous years and the impact that it has had.
