Intended Impact:

1. Sports Partnership

This membership will provide opportunities to capitalise on coaching in specialist sports. It will also gain us access to local sporting competitions and events. The intended impact is to begin to grow a competitive edge with our pupils by raising the profile of sport.

2. Resources

The funding will be used to enhance our current sports resources. This will allow pupils to practice more sports than ever before. We have made a significant investment into a new climbing frame/trim trail, football, netball goals, rugby posts and table tennis tables. This ensures our pupils are increasingly active during break times.


3. Professional development

Our commitment to continued professional development related to PE and sport will allow our Subject Leader to further enhance her knowledge of planning and delivery of a diverse range of activities. We have also invested training in our HTLA to improve delivery of sports lessons. This expertise will then be delivered to all staff during one of our INSET days.


4. External specialist /Introduction to New Clubs

Throughout the academic year, professional coaches will visit Dorney and coach all pupils and staff in a range of specialist sports. Several new coaches are being approached as we widen our offering to Dorney pupils.


5. Continued investment in New Sports Equipment

  • Our considerable investment in netball posts allows us to become hosts for the first time in netball tournaments – inviting nearby schools to compete with us on our own grounds. Similarly, our full – junior sized rugby pitch allows us to add extra clubs, competition and develop our pupils skills across a wider range of sports.
  • 2 new table tennis tables have been added – all new equipment is accessed during lunchtime rotas. This has meant a reduction in issues and problems between peers as pupils are engaged in healthy pursuits.


6. Number  of pupils within our Year 6 cohort that can do the following: 

  • swim competently, confidently and proficiently over 25m = 26/29
  • use a range of strokes effectively = 29/29
  • perform safe self-rescue in different water based situations = 20/29
