Sports Funding

Subject intention

Elton Primary School believes that Physical Education should give every child, whatever their ability, an equal opportunity to develop their physical competence to their full potential so that they are able to move effectively, efficiently, safely and with enjoyment. A broad and balanced curriculum is intended to provide for pupil’s increasing self-confidence in their ability to manage themselves and their bodies within a variety of movement situations. Through the selection of suitably differentiated and logically developed tasks, it is intended that pupils will enjoy success, be inspired and will be motivated to further develop their individual potential.
A balance of individual, paired and group activities is planned for; co-operative, collaborative and competitive situations aims to cater for the preferences, strengths and needs of every pupil. Whilst retaining its unique contribution to a pupil’s education, Physical Education also has considerable potential to contribute to wider areas of learning through cross-curricular links. Every child has the right to be physically literate.

PE Curriculum

A wide range of activities are delivered in school which aim to engage and inspire all children. We are also committed to ensure that all children receive at least 2 hours per week of high quality well-planned PE.

Over the year each child will participate in games, athletics, dance and gymnastics lessons. Opportunities are also planned for swimming in Year 6. Our aim is that all children leave our school at the end of Year 6 able to swim at least 25 metres. In addition to this we provide lots of opportunities for the pupils to take part in a range of after school clubs and activities as well as completing the 'Daily Mile'.

At Elton, we provide lots of extra-curricular clubs/sessions for the children to take part in outside of playtime and PE lessons. These include active soccer, dodgeball, PDS dance, gymnastics, ball skills and active literacy. 

We are lucky enough to work closely with community partnerships including Chester Football Club and Cheshire Phoenix Basketball Club who provide workshops and taster sessions.



We are delighted to continue our membership with Cheshire Oaks School Sports Partnership this year. The cluster will support PE with inter school competitions, continuous professional development (CPD) for staff, sports leadership programmes for pupils and special events. We are looking forward to continue to promote a variety of sport and engaging pupils in new experiences.

This academic year, using the PE funding, we have bought into 'CompletePE' scheme and hired an experienced sports coach 2 days per week to teach FS2-Y6.  We have hired our sports coach to work closely alongside our staff and pupils to deliver an excellent standard of knowledge and skill. Each year group throughout this academic year will benefit from our new PE scheme and coach company by recieving high quality teaching within physical education.

Also this year, we will continue to compete in intra-house and inter-house competitions, attend sports festivals and continue to promote a healthy lifestyle.

Over the course of the academic year, we will have a targeted provision for those least active young people in our school.


School Sport Funding

Schools are free to choose the best way of using the money. At Elton, a large percentage of the funding has been used to hire specialist qualified sports coaches to work with teachers in the delivery of their lessons. Our coach has been employed for this purpose; they were selected following a review of available providers on the basis of feedback from other schools, the range of sports tuition offered and value for money.

As a result of the funding, the percentage of pupils involved in physical activities has increased. The school has been able to raise the profile of P.E./Games through assemblies etc. as we celebrate achievement in an increased number and more diverse range of competitive events.
