William Davis Primary School


At William Davis we want the legacy from the 2012 Olympics to drive children’s enthusiasm for taking part in a range of sports and for leading an active and healthy lifestyle. With the help of the School Sports Funding from the Government we are putting support in place to ensure that we continually strive to ensure we nurture, challenge and enable each and every one of our pupils to be the very best they can be in the area of physical development.

School Sports Funding 2016-17

For the academic year 2016-17 we will receive £ 8,915 through the Government’s Primary PE and Sport Premium. We will purchase the Tower Hamlets Youth Sports Foundation THYSF SLA; pay our coach and support staff to engage children (girls and boys) in inter-school competitions; if there is adequate funding we will  pay for an Outward Bound ( orienteering, archery, cycling at a residential centre) opportunity for Year 6.

The Tower Hamlets Youth Sports Foundation (THYSF) website provides a detailed report of their funding and outcomes last year. THYSF has combined our funding with that from other schools, School Games Organiser funding, other sports funding and a significant amount of income accumulated through private sector fundraising, to help schools make the most effective and efficient use of the allocation. The use of this funding considers national/Government guidance on the funding’s usage, local priorities and the school’s specific needs.


Through our provision we aim to:

  • Foster a love for and enjoyment of being active.
  • Develop ‘fitness for life’ through promoting the health benefits of regular exercise.
  • Identify talents.
  • Develop self-esteem, confidence and social skills.
  • Contribute to the physical development of each child.
