PE & Sport Grant Allocation

All schools receive an additional grant to spend on developing PE and Sport. Find out how we spend it…

The government provides schools with additional funding each year to improve the quality of PE education and provision for pupils at the school, to increase the opportunities for competitive sport and to increase participation rates in a range of activities. These activities include swimming, games, dance, gymnastics and other alternative sports or activities which promote good health and encourage exercise. The table below indicates how we have spent this additional funding so far this year. Below you can read an evaluation of the impact of our spending so far this year.

Impact of funding

Gillespie have benefited greatly from the funding and their sporting success has shown this. As the sports leader I have used the money to upskill our teachers and build their confidence in delivering different sports. This has been done by bringing in expert coaches to teach alongside the class teacher providing them with ideas, confidence and skills. I have also been more active in the teaching of PE throughout the school and have taught all of KS2 for half a term. I have also run both netball and cricket afterschool clubs.


In football the boys won the Islington District Primary competition which meant they represented Islington in both the Davies Cup and at the London Youth Games.

The mixed football team also won the Premier League’s School competition and will go on to represent Arsenal at Everton’s ground Goodison Park in May 2016.


Gillespie won the British Land Cricket Competition in Islington so went on the represent Islington at the Regional Finals which is a tremendous achievement for a school that was only recently introduced to cricket. This was down to the Sports Leader and a cricketing parent running afterschool training for the team from October until February.


Years 3&4 were trained by the Sports Leader for 2 months leading up to the Sports Hall Athletics competition. On the day the team came 3rd out of 20 schools which was a significant improvement from last year’s 7th place.

Cross Country

The running club has been a huge success and is always at full capacity. At the cross country event we claimed the following medals:

Year 4: Alana – bronze & Zac – bronze

Year 5: Ethan – silver

Year 6: Sammy – Gold


This is in the development stage and the team were fantastic at the Netball competition. They came 2nd in their group and 9th out of 17 teams on the day. I am aiming for a top 3 finish next year.
