Sports Funding

Hangleton Primary School believes that physical education has a vital contribution to pupils' physical literacy and well-being. We teach a high-quality physical education curriculum with which we hope to inspire all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. Our broad and balanced PE curriculum, which covers the statutory National Curriculum, is intended to aid pupils’ increasing self-confidence and their ability to manage themselves and their bodies within a variety of movement situations.  All of this is experienced in a safe and supportive environment.

  • Learning objectives enable rapid and sustained progression offer children a stimulating, enjoyable and appropriately challenging learning experience.  
  • By offering opportunities to compete in sport and other activities we endeavour to build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect. 
  • Hangleton Primary School offers a range of activities which includes swimming for 6 months of the year and teaching approaches which aim to give pupils opportunities to develop their creative and expressive abilities. Pupils are encouraged to appreciate the importance of a healthy and fit body, and all will begin to understand factors which affect health and fitness. 
  • It is intended that all pupils will achieve in PE and all will enjoy success and be motivated to further develop their individual potential both in and beyond school.


Each year school receive an amount of money to support sport development and participation. For 2016/17 Hangleton Primary School received approx. £14077

Below are details of how we are spending our money, this is in addition to normal PE & sports completed within the school.

Professional Development of staff

We have employed a PE specialist at both KS1 & KS2 to deliver high quality PE lessons in partnership with class teachers. This is on a rota basis, so all classes will have this opportunity each year. The aim of this was for all staff to extend their subject knowledge by working alongside an expert practitioner. PE lessons delivered by class teachers are therefore of a higher quality. Feedback from teachers has been very positive – they feel more confident in skill teaching and the children enjoy the high activity of the lessons.

We also bought all members of the teaching staff a school PE top – to ensure a clear culture of PE engagement from both staff and children.

Cost £9360

In 2017-18 we aim to build on this by paying a current member of staff, who is an expert PE teacher, to share their expertise across the school. Also Staff are using the example expert lessons to update and amend planning. We believe this will ensure high quality teaching of PE is sustainable in the future.


We have been keen to improve participation in some sports. We have subsidised a number of sports which have included girls football, street dance and water confidence.

We have also supported our school football and netball teams by buying new equipment and kits.

Cost £1190

In 2017-18 we intend to continue to build on this support – looking at ways we can improve participation for children who currently do not attend any clubs – with a special focus on disadvantaged pupils.


To support the curriculum we have purchased some additional equipment, to ensure we have sufficient so that the entire class can take part in the same activity at the same time. This has included a complete renewal of the KS2 PE cupboard and storage.

 Cost £2700

Development of school grounds

We have a large site and believe it is important to ensure it remains well maintained. Last year we spent £9000 on the bank to provide a useable football pitch. This year we have used the money to maintain the site.  

Cost £880

In 2017-18 we have applied for a grant and will use some money to provide gym equipment in the KS2 playground and an improved imagination in the KS1 playground. Encouraging the children to be active at playtime is a key priority.

2016 – 17 total Sports funding received - £14077
