PE & Sports Premium

Gwyn Jones Primary School is committed to supporting all our children in leading a healthy lifestyle. We feel that Physical Education plays a vital role in turning these aspirations into reality. Our aim is to improve the offer of sports provision, increase pupil participation and to use this to develop a greater understanding of healthy lifestyles through recreational and competitive sports. Some of the ways we do this is by integrating sports and PE into the curriculum, and providing the opportunity to explore PE through a cross curricular approach.

The school has a whole school long term plan for PE and each year group has an identified term to cover the required areas from the National Curriculum (racket and ball, gymnastics, dance, athletics, defence games, swimming).

We work closely with the WFSSN, the Waltham Forest Schools Sport Network. The WFSSN brings together schools to drive and develop high quality PE and Sports opportunities for all.

The Network works with schools and partner organisations to give young people the best opportunities in Physical Education, Competitive Sport, Physical Activity and Health. It works with young people aged 5-19, their schools, teachers and parents to develop engagement in sport, physical activity, leadership and volunteering.

The Schools Sport Network is a collective of all schools in Waltham Forest. It is governed by the Waltham Forest Sports LOC (Local Organising Committee). Formed of Headteachers, School Games Organisers and the Head of Sport and Leisure, with other key stakeholders joining them on an invitational basis. The LOC is chaired by Kate Jennings, Headteacher at Mission Grove Primary.

All schools in Waltham Forest are invited to join the network across 2 key areas:

  • Competitive sport
  • Full membership

The operational team is formed of 3 School Games Organisers (SGO) and an administrator:
