Sports Premium


Kenley Primary School sports premium 2016/17


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 and have developed a Forest School. 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 renewed our outdoor climbing equipment on the Key Stage 2 playground. The children have access to our outdoor gym and circuit training area, as well as basketball and netball courts, football pitch including goals, playground markings to encourage dance along with a table tennis table all on the KS2 playground. In Key Stage 1 we have outdoor climbing equipment to encourage active play along with the provision of play equipment and playground marking to encourage active play.


We have installed an orienteering course and enter our more able and talented pupils into local orienteering competitions.


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


We have also continued to extend the availability of clubs by including 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. We have also had a Badminton taster day for all pupils and pupils attending the club have played in local competitions.


We subscribe to ‘5-a-day TV’ and encourage all classes to access the 5 minutes daily dance based activity in the classroom.



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


Forest School – We have trained a member of staff to run forest school which supports pupils active learning outside of the classroom.


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:

Football, Badminton, Tai Kwando and Cross Country running.


We participate in sporting competitions with other local school including girls and boys football throughout the year, orienteering, swimming, cross country running and the Croydon Schools Athletics competition.


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


We have enhance provision for able and talented pupils in sport by developing their skills and opportunities through their involvement in outdoor activities such as a trip to Frylands Wood Scout Camp where they participated in a range of diverse challenges.


We have taken the pupils to live sporting events including the European Aquatic event at the Olympic Aquatic Centre, a Championship football match and the Para Athletics championship at the Olympic Stadium.


Future priorities

  • To continue to participate in local sporting events.


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


  • A skipping day to encourage playground games.


  • Develop our inter-school competitions by reviewing the current structure of sports day.


  • Continuing professional development of teachers through training in specific sports which can be taught within the curriculum.


  • Continue to develop and introduce opportunities to play a range of sports including Tag-rugby and Netball.
