Aspire. Endeavour. Achieve.
The government is providing additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport is for all children aged between 5 and 11.
At the Chiltern School, we aim to use this Grant to:
The Grant is split and paid to the school for the periods of September, 2015 – March 2016 (£4,900) and April 2016 – August 2016 (£3,500)

Our PE Grant for 2014/15 was £8,360.
At the Chiltern School we decided that this money would be best used to:
In September we were joined by Anna Carter who will be working with us every Monday. Anna is a fully qualified specialist PE teacher and she will be working with pupils on our primary site and supporting staff training in PE. She will be working closely with our teachers to improve PE skills and healthy life styles knowledge throughout the school.
Anna will also be looking for local opportunities for our pupils to access a wider range of activities outside of school.
We will be continually evaluating pupil progress in PE Skills. We expect to see improvements over this academic year.
Donna Ashley is here one afternoon a week to do dance sessions with a group of pupils. Donna is a qualified Dance and Fitness Instructor.
Sharon Collins is a qualified swimming instructor supporting on and off site swimming sessions.
Full reports on all of the above activities will be on this website later this year.

Our PE Grant for 2013/14 was £5,131.00.
This funding was used to improve and enhance sports/PE activities for our primary aged pupils by providing:
Groups of pupils have been able to access swimming sessions at a local swimming pool. We employ a qualified swimming teacher for these sessions who is able to get to know the pupils and help them learn to swim and improve their water skills. Pupils in Years 4,5 & 6 access RDA lessons at Gaddesden Riding School.
This year, we were able to replace old PE equipment and also purchase specialist PE equipment to allow pupils to experience more sports. We also purchased new sporting trophies and medals.
Teachers feel that pupils have benefitted from the opportunity of accessing a wider range of activities. Pupils achievement and progression in PE is measured by assessing individual skill performance from a baseline. We also assess pupils using P Levels.
It has been decided that next academic year, we will use this Grant to employ a specialist PE Teacher one day a week to work with our teaching staff to extend their skills and knowledge. We also want to look at more offsite opportunities for our pupils to extend their sporting skills and work with pupils from other schools.
