Our School Vision


At Sholing Junior School, we aim to inspire all children to develop a love of physical activity and sport. Through good physical education, whole school values and a whole child approach, we aim to nurture confident, resilient children who will strive for their personal best. We listen to our children wants and needs and provide them with a range of active experiences and clubs. We want to aid our children in obtaining the values and skills to celebrate and respect the success of others, as well as modestly celebrating their own successes. We aim to ensure that our delivery of physical education allows all children to have the skills and mindset to leave junior school with the capabilities to be successful in their sporting challenges and active lifestyles at secondary school and beyond. We strive to educate both our children and families to develop a greater understanding on how to live healthy lifestyles and make healthy choices. We are dedicated to ensuring healthy minds, as well as bodies and will continue to support our children's well-being. We have strong links with local clubs and partnerships within our community to ensure the children and families receive the support and knowledge they need.

PE and Sport Premium for Primary Schools

Up until the academic year 2019/2020, the Government is making available to all schools a sum of money annually to allow them to continue to develop sports provision within school and to help schools increase pupil participation in sporting activity. This money presently equates to £8000 per school per year plus an additional £5 per child. For our school this means approximately £9000 per year.

Our aims for the use of Sports Premium funding are :

·  increase all children’s enjoyment of being physically active, regardless of sporting ability

·  increase participation levels in PE with the aim of lifelong participation in physical activities and sports

·  raise standards and achievement throughout the school.


With the above aims in mind our plans for the use of the Sports Premium include:

·  raise the profile of PE and sport through celebrating and sharing pupils’ achievements on the newsletters, the website and through celebration assemblies,.

·  developing the PE curriculum further to provide pupils with the confidence to try new activities as well as enhance their existing skills in a diverse range of physical activities and environments.

·  responding to pupil and parent voice and offering a range of extra-curricular PE and physical activity clubs to increase the number of pupil participation

·  providing opportunities to visit sporting events and to try sports activities that they may not otherwise experience

·  increase the number of community clubs links  

·  increase opportunities children have to take part in Intra-school competitions through House Team competitions

·  participate in local, city and county competitions and tournaments, giving the children the chance to compete at different levels as members of the local  Sports Partnership 

·  increasing subject knowledge and confidence in teaching PE and sporting activities through professional development of school staff 

·  ensuring pupils receive two hours or more of timetabled high quality PE each week.

·  increasing physical activity during play and lunchtimes (even during wet weather) by training pupils as Play leaders, developing the role of the adult Play leader and teaching children about making healthy lifestyle choices.

·   continuing to invest in equipment and apparatus to support children’s development and increase physical activity
