PE and Sports Premium

We aim to give our children a life-long love for sports, creating a lasting legacy of fitness, health and well-being. We inspire our children to be the best athletes they can be through aspirational figures from the world of sport and actively build positive sporting relationships within the community. We instil a desire in our pupils to be successful in all they do and promote a healthy competitive attitude to help them succeed in all areas of life.

School Games Values: The Spirit of the Games



The School Games values – Passion, Self-Belief, Respect, Honesty, Determination  Teamwork and Eco-Friendly – were developed by young people to recognise how the experience of sport should be epitomised and embodied within schools, and to reflect the ‘spirit’ of the School Games.


Keep going no matter what. Determination is about the journey you go on to push yourself and achieve your dreams. Have the mental strength and self-discipline to overcome obstacles, commit to your goals and keep working every day to become the very best you can be. Don’t hold back!


Be honest with others and with yourself. Have the courage to do the right thing. Be truthful and promote fairness in every situation.


Giving it 100%, putting your heart and soul into whatever you are doing and never giving up. Care about what you do and the people around you, and approach each opportunity with enthusiasm and positivity.


Treat other politely, and with understanding. Accept life’s ‘ups and downs’ with grace. Show respect every day, in everything you do and for everyone around you.


You’ve got to believe to achieve. Have the self-belief and confidence to succeed and reach your personal best.


Treat everyone equally, support each other and work together to have fun and achieve. Celebrate each other’s success. Be a good friend and a positive team player in school, sport and life.


Eco-Friendly – Chosen by young people within the network and in partnership with Planet Earth Games, this new School Games value encourages us to think more about the everyday choices we can all make to help the planet.


School Games Organisers

School Games Organisers are funded by the Department of Health and Social Care and the National Lottery through Sport England to deliver the School Games programme for three days a week, to ensure all schools from Key Stage 2 upwards have access to positive experiences. They endeavour to ensure that the School Games programme connects with Community Sport and is linked to the work of National Governing Bodies of Sport (NGBs).

The county’s SGOs are available to assist schools with their sport and physical education programmes and offer a range of professional development opportunities for school staff. They have detailed knowledge of the local community sports infrastructure and can offer advice on how local primary and secondary schools can connect with this.

Our School Games organiser are:

Phonics in PE

Cross-curricular work efficiently enhancing children’s knowledge, skills, and understanding while stimulating their curiosity with interconnected and thought-provoking topics. Combining multiple subjects allows for investigations that ignite children’s imagination and encourage active inquiry, initiative-taking, and lively discussion and debate. Every teacher should consider this approach to maximise their students’ learning potential.

Action Mats

Action Mats focus on the key skills children will have to master by the end of KS2; introducing them in fun ways through personal challenges and competitive games. The children have enjoyed developing their fitness in a fun and friendly way.


Orienteering is an exciting outdoor adventure sport similar to a cross-country race. The difference is that it involves walking or running while navigating around a course. The children had fun using a detailed map of the school grounds, to locate different control points around the school. The children developed their map reading, teamwork and communication skills.




Pupils will focus on developing an idea or theme into dance choreography. They will work in pairs and groups using different choreographing tools to create dances e.g. formations, timing, dynamics. Pupils will have opportunities to choreograph, perform and provide feedback on dance. Pupils think about how to use movement to convey ideas, emotions, feelings and characters. Pupils will show an awareness of keeping others safe and will have the opportunity to lead others through short warm ups.

Year 6 have been learning to copy and repeat a set dance phrase showing confidence in movements to different Calypso music. Calypso is a style of Caribbean music that originated in Trinidad and Tobago during the early to the mid-19th century and spread to the rest of the Caribbean Antilles and Venezuela by the mid-20th century

To work with others to explore and develop the dance idea.

Freya delivered an inspirational assembly and worked with our children delivering a series of activities such as; bocci, sitting volleyball, curling and bowling.

The children really enjoyed their sessions and came away with an increased understanding of inclusivity in sport.
