Latest Sporting Achievements 2015 - 2016

The Government has stated:

'We are spending over £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools over the 3 academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016. We will allocate this extra funding directly to primary headteachers.' The government has committed to funding the primary school Sports Premium up until 2020 – an investment worth £750 million.

Schools can choose how they use the funding, for example to:

  • hire specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers during PE lessons
  • support and involve the least active children by running after-school sports clubs and holiday clubs, e.g. the Change4Life clubs
  • provide resources and training courses in PE and sport for teachers
  • run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • run sports activities with other schools

At Primrose Hill C of E Primary Academy we are proud of our achievements and inclusive provision in sport and physical education.

We have a record of encouraging broad particpation in wide range of activities and have had some very encouraging successes for our teams in a number of sporting events both locally and at county level.

  Impact of Sport Premium 2014 – 2015

Staff reported an increased in confidence in teaching games, particularly dance and gymnastics, throughout the year due to the support received through our PE specialist HLTA who is a qualified Primary Sports Coach ensuring sustainability of sports provision in the future. As a result, increased confidence demonstrated through lesson observation and discussion.  There has been increased participation in local and county level gymnastics competitions, with qualification to the second round.

The same member of staff has organised training for Year 6 play leaders who demonstrate an excellent approach to involving a wide variety of pupils at lunchtime to engage with physical activity and as a result at lunch the vast majority of pupils enjoy an active session, skipping, playing tennis, netball, football etc. The school’s sports partnership has provided many additional activities for the whole school to participate in. We have competed in cross country, tag rugby, hockey, cricket, Multi sports, partnership athletics, swimming, rounders, tennis, and football.

Additional resources have been provided to support those lost or broken during the course of the year. Additionally we have linked with local schools to participate in friendly matches in the Forest of Dean. This will continue to be developed over the coming year.

Primrose Hill C of E Academy PE and Sports Provision 2014 - 2015

At Primrose Hill C of E Primary Academy we are proud of our achievements in sport and physical education and strong  inclusive provision.

We have a record of encouraging broad participation in a wide range of activities. Our teams take part in competitions(tournaments, festivals, galas and athletics events at local and county level) in different sports/activities – often with much success including swimming champions, Forest of Dean tag rugby champions, girls football champions and  pupils selected for the county cross country finals in Cheltenham. We were champions in the GBJ multipsorts tournament for the first year ever in 2014 and runners up in 2015.  Sports covered include boys’ football, girls’ football, tag rugby, netball, tennis, hockey, cricket, rounders, swimming, athletics, gymnastics and cross-country running.

After school clubs or coaching opportunities are offered in most of these sports with a particularly strong and established running club. Over 100 pupils have places in an after school sports club, inlcuding a new KS1 Multisports club.  We are able to signpost families to several local sports clubs with whom we have strong links including Lydney Rugby Club and Lydney Football Club.

Lunchtimes now have support 5 times a week to develop opportunities to be more active.  Year 6 pupils have been trained to become Young Leaders and we are now looking to invest this in our Year 5 pupils

Extra PE funding was introduced by the Government in September 2013.  It is allocated to schools on the basis that:

  • There is an increase in participation rates in such activities as games, dance, gymnastics, swimming and athletics.
  • There is an increase and success in competitive school sports.
  • That the PE curriculum becomes more inclusive.
  • There is a growth in the range of provisional and alternative sporting activities.
  • There is an improvement in partnership work on physical education with other schools and local partners.
  • That there are links with other subjects that contribute to pupils' overall achievement and their greater social, spiritual, moral and cultural links.
  • That there is a greater awareness amongst pupils about dangers of obesity, smoking and other such activities that undermine pupil's health.

Our aim at Primrose Hill C of E Primary Academy is to provide for children:

  • Weekly quality PE teaching from well trained staff.
  • A wider range of after-school clubs.
  • Sports events that encourage competition at all levels.
  • Active lunchtimes that provide a variety of organised activities.
