School Sport and Funding

School Sports Funding 2017 - 2018

As a school we have always strived to provide the best opportunities for all our pupils to lead a healthy and active lifestyle and the supply of the School Sport Funding is enabling us to do this with greater ease.  From analysing feedback and looking at what the school already offers, we have allocated these funds towards various aspects to greater enhance what we already do and provide greater wealth of opportunities.  The school spends the funding on: promoting healthy, active lifestyles; increasing numbers of children who participate in out of hours sports clubs; using coaches to introduce new sports to the school; use of coaches to team teach PE lessons with school staff as well as promoting healthy living daily at play and lunchtimes and through special health and fitness week activities.  The money will be allocated accordingly in order to support the school to make sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport for the benefit of all our children.

School Games Award For 2017-18

Our school was presented with the Gold School Games' Award for the fourth consecutive year!  It is wonderful that Whitehall has been recognised for the fantastic work we do in P.E. and sport and the great progress we make each year; this really does show that sport and leading a healthy lifestyle is embedded into our daily life at Whitehall. Now that we are eligible to achieve platinum, we must strive to achieve even more next year.

PE Lessons

With an expanding school, we were pleased that we could provide every child in the school with two hours of curriculum time PE every week. I has been great to see classes taking the recent warm weather as an opportunity to take part in additional physical activities. This year in PE lessons, the children have tried a range of sports during 'invasion games' and 'over the net' modules. Through indoor PE lessons, every child has had the opportunity to take part in dance, gymnastics and fitness activities. The structure of our lessons provide children with opportunities to develop leadership skills and teamwork skills in competitive scenarios. Through a combination of PE and PSHE lessons, the children have been educated on the principles of leading healthy and active lifestyles. 

 

Sport Coaches

It has been fantastic working with Clubsport for the first time this year. The Clubsport coaches have delivered a wide range of out of hours sports clubs throughout the year, which have proved to be popular and successful. Thanks to Clubsport, we have been able to offer our children new sports opportunities such as fencing, archery and tri-golf. This year we have continued to provide tennis and cricket clubs by employing local coaches. All the clubs that have ran this year have been greatly beneficial for the children and it has been great to see them develop their skill set from high quality out of hours teaching.

 

As well as providing out of hours coaching, Charlotte, Stephen and Chris have taught lessons during curriculum time. This has allowed those children who do not attend sports clubs the opportunity to benefit from working with professional coaches. A number of Whitehall teachers have worked alongside Charlotte and Stephen from Clubsport to develop personal skills in teaching a range of sports.

 

Squad Training

In addition to the sports clubs delivered by professional coaches, a number of Whitehall staff have given up their time to provide sport squad training sessions. From these sessions, Whitehall children have the opportunity to represent the school in inter-school competitions in the following sports; Football, Netball, Cross Country, Swimming, Rugby, Rounders and Athletics. It has been great to see the children put the skills they learn in training into practise in a  competitive setting. We are very proud of how our children represented the school and the high level of sportsmanship they displayed at every competition.

 

Between the squad training run by Whitehall staff and the clubs delivered by professional coaches we have successfully provided our children with a huge range of opportunities to be active, enjoy sport and learn new skills. See below for the number of children who attended out of hours sports opportunities throughout the year.

Swimming 

At Whitehall, we see swimming not only as a great way to stay healthy and active, but as a fundamental life skill. To help prepare children for life outside the classroom, we have provided  Year 4 and 5 children with regular swimming lessons throughout the year. By introducing swimming lessons at an early age compared to previous years, we hope to see an increase in the amount of children who can swim 25m by the time they leave in Year 6.

 

The current Year 6 cohort would have undergone regular swimming lessons in the academic year 2016-2017.

73% of our Year 6 children can swim 25m unaided.

On Thursday 25th January, eight children represented the school in an away netball match against Cherry Lane.  It was an amazing game with our players performing at the best of their ability in a game which I think is the best I have ever seen in my time as a teacher.  It was a tight game throughout with the lead always changing hands.  Even though we lost, it is a game all of the players should be really proud of!

Girls' Netball Rally 

On Saturday 24th February, we took two teams to take part in the District Girls' Netball Rally which was held at Ryefield school.  Both teams played very well throughout the group matches of the competition but unfortunately only our A team qualified for the quarter finals.  Their quarter final match was against Oak Farm B and our team won that match 12-0.  Their semi-final match was against a very good Hermitage side who beat us 7-2 and it was Hermitage who went onto win the whole competition.  Due to the A team's wonderful performance, they came away with bronze medals and also qualified for the Borough Girls' Netball Competition! All sixteen girls who played on Saturday did very well and we are very proud of all of their performances in their matches and great sportsmanship!

Borough Girls' Netball Rally 

On Wednesday 7th March, our eight successful girls, who won bronze medals at District Girls' Netball Rally, represented our school in the Borough Girls' Netball Rally which was held at Newnham school.  We were one of the top twelve schools in the borough who were there to compete against one another to see which school would progress on to represent the Hillingdon Borough at Crystal Palace in July.  The girls played well in all of their matches and showed amazing sportsmanship throughout.  Unfortunately we did not progress to the semi finals of this competition but we had some very good games.  The results were as follows:

Whitehall = 1 Ladybanks = 2

Whitehall = 0 Newnham = 5

Whitehall = 2 Oak Farm = 0

Whitehall = 0 Dr Triplets = 2

Whitehall = 3 Hayes Park = 0

Mixed Netball Rally 

On Saturday 10th March, we took two teams to take part in the District Mixed Netball Rally which was held at Ryefield school.  Both teams played very well throughout the group matches of the competition but unfortunately only our A team qualified for the quarter finals.  Our B Team played exceptionally well in all of their matches and we are very pleased with the progress they have made in their play this year.  Team A's quarter final match was against Hermitage A and our team played amazingly well in what was a very tight match.  Unfortunately we lost that Match 5-4 and therefore did not progress to the semi-finals.  However, it was Hermitage that went on to compete in the final so that just shows how well team A played in this competition.  All fifteen who played did very well and we are very proud of all of their performances in their matches and great sportsmanship!

Boys' Netball Rally 

On Monday 19th March, we took a team to take part in the District Boys' Netball Rally which was held at Ryefield school.  The boys played very well in all of their group matches:

Winning 8-0 against Oak Farm 'B'

Losing 5-2 against St. Bernadette's 'A'

Winning 8-0 against Hillingdon 'B'

 

Therefore they qualified to take part in the quarter final match against Hillingdon 'A'.  Our team played amazingly well in what was a very tight match.  Unfortunately we lost that match and therefore did not progress to the semi-finals.  However, the two matches which our boys did lose were actually against the two teams who reached the final - which shows how well they played in this competition.

 

All eight who played did very well and we are very proud of all of their performances in their matches and great sportsmanship!

Los Angeles Rams Visit

On Thursday 19th October, we were extremely fortunate to have the Cheerleaders from the Los Angeles NFL team visit our school. For the two classes with the best attendance, the cheerleaders showed off some of their amazing moves; taught a routine and took part in a Q&A session. The morning was thoroughly enjoyed by children and staff alike. GO RAMS!

 

Daniel Lewis Visit

On Friday 1st February, we were very lucky to be visited by Daniel Lewis, a GB Triple Jumper who competed in the common wealth games in 2014. Every child took part in a fitness circuit where they were give a huge amount of encouragement from Daniel, Sportivator (Omar) and WJS staff. It was excellent to see the children so enthusiastic about fitness; they clearly enjoyed the experience. Daniel then led a fantastic, inspirational assembly where he explained his journey as a triple jumper thus far. Daniel demonstrated some of his training exercises and some children were chosen to replicate these. Even a few lucky staff members were chosen too!

 

Thank you to all who have already began to bring in Sponsorship money. The money raised will help our school to buy sports equipment for PE lessons and will help fund training and equipment for GB athletes. A very worthy cause!

Swimming 

Congratulation to the six children who competed in the District Swimming Gala last night (15/03/18). The children swam exceptionally well in the following events; Freestyle, Breaststroke, Backstroke Medley Relay and Freestyle Relay. Miss Costa and I are extremely proud of everyone who competed. A particular well done to Niharika for winning Gold in the Individual Girls Breaststroke and Riaz for winning the Silver medal in the Individual Boys Breaststroke. Thankyou to all the parents for coming to support your children and the school. 

 

We have so much to be proud of in regards to our sport provision at Whitehall Junior School and we are excited about what 2017-18 will bring!

 

Mr Cumming, Mr Jones and Miss Costa
