 Foundry College received:

Year Amount Expenditure
2016/17 £208 £560
2017/18 £417 £810
2018/19 £0 £1,290


 Purpose of the funding

  • To develop or add to the PE and sport activities that Foundry College already offers
  • To build capacity and capability within the college to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the college in future years.

How we have used the money

Climbing at Oakwood Youth Challenge

Water Sports – 6 week course of water sports activities at Wokingham Waterside Centre

Outdoor physical challenges – 4 week course at Oakwood Youth Challenge

Thames Valley Adventure Park – weekly sessions

The Allotment – weekly sessions, seasonal

How we plan to use the money for 2019/20

During the academic year we plan to build on the successes achieved at the Oakwood Youth Challenge, and expand our provision to cover watersports at Dinton Pastures and ice skating at the John Nike center.

Furthermore, we will develop our teachers’ skill-sets by having external PE tutors on site to run PE sessions. Dependent upon the pupil, as and when it is safe to do so, we will also attend Carnival Swimming Pool with the intention of implementing the Water Safety training and achieving confident swimming to a minimum of 25m.


Where we expect to see improvement

  • A broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils, for example attendance at the local Golf driving range
  • To enhance the profile of PE and sport across the college to enrich the pupil experience and lead to whole-school improvement
  • To see increased participation in competitive sport and physical activities, including outside of college.

Ofsted commented;

“You care deeply about the pupils and are determined to make sure that your school provides the nurturing environment that they need.”

“Pupils are happy at your school, they say that there is always someone to talk to and that their views are valued. Parents and carers praise the improvements in their children’s behaviour and attitudes to learning.”

“You and your team are acutely aware of the importance of ensuring that every pupil is safeguarded from harm.”
