This means that we use the premium to:

  • Develop or add to the PE and sport activities that our school already offers.
  • Make improvements now that will benefit pupils now and those joining the school in future years.
  • Enable our staff work together to give the children a secure set of sporting skills.
  • To inspire the children by inviting professional sportsmen and women to school.
  • To share their passion for sport and as role models for our pupils.
  • Dorothy Barley Infants strives for success and have been developing our pupils to participate in inter-school competitions. Pupils have participated in visits to the swimming festival at Abbey Leisure Centre, Barking and the Primary Panathalon at Barking Abbey School.

The school is always looking for opportunities to develop sport and fitness and we have spent significantly more than the Government grant to ensure our children benefit from the best provision.



For example, we use our funding to:

  • Hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers. The school employ a PE specialist coach who runs extra sessions, after school and holiday clubs and assists with special sporting events such as Health and Fitness Week and Sports Day.
  • Enable our Sport coach to work with small groups of children at lunchtimes to support physical development and also to boost confidence and friendships.
  • Provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively.
  • Introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport.
  • Support and involve the least active children by running additional clubs in school hours.
  • Renew membership to aFPE and the boroughs competition trust.
  • Take part in the borough SEN activities and competitions.
  • Fund children to participate in the local dance project – Big dance.


Previous Successes:

  • Increased participation in sports clubs across the school.
  • An increased number of after school clubs offered in KS1.
  • Increased participation in borough SEN activities and clubs in school.
  • Awarded bronze for the Healthy Schools Award.
