Sports Premium

Kenley Primary School sports premium 2015/16


Sports and leading an active lifestyle has always been part of our ethos at Kenley. We encourage pupils to participate in a wide range of sporting activities both within the curriculum and as part of our extra-curriculum programme. We have a qualified sports coach taking each class on a weekly basis and all classes are timetabled for a PE session with their class teacher in addition to this.


The Physical Environment

We are lucky to have excellent outdoor facilities at Kenley, which include a large playing field, a Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 playground. Both playgrounds have areas with play equipment on which are used by all the children during playtime, lunchtime and, for the infants, as part of their physical development. In addition we have a nature trail which is used by all year groups to enhance their outdoor learning. Inside we have a sports hall which is used by all classes for dance, gym and other fitness related activities.                             


How will we be spending the money?

In order to enhance our current provision we have installed Gym equipment on the Key Stage 2 playground, we have also had markings for circuit training laid on the Key Stage 2 playground to enhance pupil’s activity. Alongside the circuit training markings we have a new basketball and netball court, ‘Copy Me’ and ‘We Dance’ markings to encourage active play, a target board to enhance PE games along with a Phonic Frog which allows for more active learning of Phonics. 


We have further enhanced out outdoor facilities by purchasing an outdoor table tennis table and installing an orienteering course.


To support teaching staff in both our indoor and outdoor provision we have purchased the Val Sabin Scheme for Dance, Gym and outdoor games for both Key Stages.


We have also extended the availability of clubs to include a badminton club which runs every Wednesday morning; this is being subsidized by the funding to make the cost in line with other sporting clubs.


Badminton taster days for all children to increase their knowledge of different sports on offer and give them a taste of the activities they can get involved in.



Qualified coach who works with every class from reception to year 6.


Swimming for Year 3 and 4 pupils - Swimming is an important part of the curriculum. Pupils are able to improve their swimming ability in differentiated groups over several weeks in a controlled and safe environment. Swimming is an extremely fun activity which the pupils enjoy and provides many social and health benefits.


We have increased our provision for after school sporting activities and currently have clubs running in:

Dance, Tennis, Football, Badminton, Multi-Sports and Athletics.


We are increasing our participation in sporting competitions with other local schools. We have had regular football matches throughout the year. Have participated in the Croydon Schools cross country tournament and will be participating in the Croydon Schools Athletics competition.


All children will have plenty of opportunities to participate in a broader range of activities than before.


Future priorities

  • To further enhance our participation in local sporting events.


  • Train young people to be play leader and organize activities for younger pupils.


  • Enhance provision for able and talented pupils in sport by developing their skills and opportunities.


  • Celebrate sporting activities more regularly by reporting events on the newsletter and a dedicated PE notice board.
