School Sports Funding 2020- 2021

At Whitehall Junior School, we view leading healthy and active lifestyles as a priority for our children and their families. The sports funding we receive each year enables us to successfully provide a diverse range of opportunities for our children to be healthy and active. Each year, we review our spending and evaluate the effectiveness of our sports provision. This analysis is then used to widen and enhance the opportunities we provide to ensure our children continue to live healthily and actively as well as learning new strategies to be healthy. The school will spend the funding on: promoting healthy, active lifestyles; increasing numbers of children who participate in out of hours sports clubs; using external providers to deliver adventure activities; use of coaches to team teach PE lessons with school staff; and providing children with leadership opportunities within sport. 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.  


Whitehall will receive approximately £20,034.00 in sports funding and the planned spend is as follows:

PE Lessons

At Whitehall Junior School, we view Physical Education as an extremely important part of the national curriculum. All children are timetabled with two hours of PE every week. These sessions include both indoor and outdoor PE lessons. Throughout the academic year, children complete three dance and three gymnastics units through indoor sessions. Outdoor PE lessons provide children with the opportunity to take part in a range of invasive team games and individual sports as well as athletics. Our PE lessons teach the children the skills needed be successful in a range of sports. Every PE unit provides the children with the opportunity to practise the skills learnt in competitive scenarios. Our inclusive PE curriculum allows all children to develop communication, teamwork and leadership skills in a healthy competitive environment.


Daily Mile

This year Whitehall Junior School continues with the Daily Mile which was introduced into the timetable last academic year.  Every day, all children take part in the Daily Mile to further promote leading a healthy lifestyle.


Sports Coaches

Sports coaches are a vital part of Physical Education and sport at Whitehall Junior School. They are deployed in a range of capacities to ensure children receive high quality teaching in both PE lessons and extra-curricular sports clubs. The sports clubs at Whitehall Junior School are delivered by fully qualified coaches. On a weekly basis, the coaches provide regular training sessions for a wide range of sports and physical activities. We have had great feedback from the children who are currently attending these clubs and it has been great to see them benefit from these wider opportunities. Our sports coaches are also utilised during lunchtimes. Every child has the opportunity to be physically active by taking part in games led by our coaches at lunchtime (as well as our trained sports ambassadors). Following on from the successes last year, ClubSport coaches will continued to work alongside our teachers to develop their PE teaching skills. The course involves a range of team-teaching and observation sessions to ensure our teachers continue to deliver high quality PE lessons.  


Squad Training

As well as the clubs ran by external sports coaches, a number of Whitehall staff also give up their free time to deliver squad training sessions. From these squad training sessions, children have the opportunity to represent Whitehall a range of inter-school competitions. These competitions consist of leagues where matches take place on a weekly basis and knock-out tournaments. 



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 continued to provide Year 4 with regular swimming lessons throughout the year. By introducing swimming lessons at an earlier 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.
