Sports Premium & PE
Our school is continuing to subscribe to the Castle Point & Rochford School Sport Partnership based at The Deanes School. By using economies of scale and working in partnership with other local schools we are able to access a range of services through the specialist staff based at The Deanes School who focus on the delivery of Primary PE and Sport Premium outcomes.

William Read Primary School and Nursery invests a portion of the Primary PE and Sport funding in working in partnership and collaboration with The Deanes through the Castle Point and Rochford School Sport Partnership to access a variety of services to benefit students and staff of the school. This allows us to be part of an infrastructure of 50 schools benefiting from guidance and development around high quality physical education, increasing the range and breadth of ‘School Sport’ opportunities and educating young people regarding healthy and active lifestyles.
In addition to our investment into the ‘Basic’ membership services provided through the School Sport Partnership, we have also bought further support through ‘Enhanced’ membership. This is a bespoke annual plan tailored to suit the specific needs of our school.
Our school is also focusing part of our investment in three areas which were highlighted by our PE subject lead through an audit of needs.
We continue to use Sport Premium funding to pay for extra sporting activities, the benefits go beyond the physical activity this provides and impacts enormously on behaviour and attainment.
Finally, we are investing time and expertise in to our longer term planning and mapping of PE as a vital curriculum subject. We believe this will have a major impact on staff and students both now and in the future.

Our PE vision is to ensure all pupils enjoy sport and develop positive attitudes to physical education and sport. We aim to:
- Encourage pupils to participate in internal and external clubs in order to achieve their potential;
- Encourage pupils to develop their competitive nature and team spirit;
- Provide opportunities to participate in high quality sports lessons and promote a healthy, active lifestyle.
We are proud to have earned the Youth Sports Trust Award and the Key Stage 1 Active Schools' Award.
The current COVID situation is providing challenges, but PE continues in 'bubbles' and virtually with innovative competitions providing challenges between local schools without physically meeting up.
