Sports @TJ

Our reputation for sport at Thomas Jolyffe goes back a long way. Teams far and wide fear the red and white of a TJ shirt coming their way and our collection of cups and trophies is quite literally too large for our trophy cabinet!


Take a look through this page for further details of our sports provision. For current parents the fixtures and results for matches are now listed in the ‘Latest News’ section of the website.

PE and Sport Premium 2023-24


1. What is the Sports Premium?

The government provides funding to provide new and substantial primary school sport. The funding is provided by the Department for Education and will see money going directly into primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.



2. Purpose of the funding

All schools have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but there is freedom to choose how to do it. We recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of our children. We also believe that an innovative and varied PE curriculum supplemented with high quality extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all children.


3. How we plan to use the money?

The money will be used so that all children benefit regardless of their sporting ability. We will continue to place a high priority on our PE provision and, as such, will continue to invest in additional staffing and resources to further enhance the PE curriculum as well as extra-curricular sports and after schools clubs.


  Sports equipment and resources

To purchase new sports equipment and resources to support delivery of PE and Sports.


 Provision of professional sports coach

To employ a specialist Sports Coach to work regularly alongside staff and whom will organise community competitive sports.


 Supporting our school teams with transport to and from events

This will include athletics, football, swimming, tag rugby and a number of other events at local and national level.


 Provision of coaches to provide high quality physical lunch time activities

The coach will engage with children across the school during lunch break to develop play leader a scheme with our eldest children and encourage engagement in sport from Reception to Year 6.


 Supporting children to attend after school sports clubs

Making sure that sports clubs are accessible to all who would like to attend and to encourage participation in representing the school at sporting events.


What is the Sports Grant?

This is funding that first became available in September 2013 which must be used to fund improvements to the provision of PE and sport for primary aged pupils so they develop healthy lifestyles. 

‘Children are captivated by their learning’, ‘The well-being of pupils is at the heart of the school’, ‘School is a calm place - pupils are polite, courteous and well-mannered.'
