Pupil Voice 2018 - 2019

" As we have got older the challenges have got harder and we have been given more structural criticism."

" As a group of children we stand out for skills and sportsmanship due to good teaching from people who care for us."

" We are given a chance to shine, show our true colours and reach our full potential."

"The impact of PE has been our improved skills, made us believe in ourselves, be braver, stronger, fitter, resilient and ready to take on new challenges."

The Government is providing additional funding of £320 million and this will continue in the 2019 - 2020 academic year.  This is to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.  This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.  Funding for schools will be calculated by reference to the number of primary aged pupils (in Years 1 - 6) as recorded in the schools census in January of each year.  Schools must spend the funding to make additional and substantial improvments to the quality of physical educaiton, physical activity and sport we offer, but have the freedon to choose how we do this.  In 2018 our school received £16,000 plus £10 per pupil each year.  The money will be used so that all pupils benefit regardless of thier sporting ability.  Funding for 2019 - 2020 will be published later this year.  The funding should be used for :

- developing or adding to activities the school already offers

- building capacity and capability so that future pupils will benefit from the improvements made now.

At Primrose Hill we are passionate about sport and recognise the importance that physical activity has on pupils' lives.  We believe that a well-organised and engaging sports curriculum helps pupils develop confidence and a sense of achievement; it teaches pupils how to rise to a challenge, and nurtures the character and skills that will help them get on and succeed in life.

We aim to provide a positive and engaging experience in physical education at our school.  The School Sport Premium will ensure that pupils are physically active and excited about sport at our school.  As well as increasing fitness, we hope that pupils will appreciate teamwork and a healthy lifestyle - for life.

We will ensure this happens through:

  • upskilling teachers to improve the quality of sports lessons
  • increase the amount of competitive sports that our pupils participate in
  • Maintain our Gold School Games award (for the third year in 2019) and work towards the platinum award next year
  • invest in our pupils becoming sports leaders and seek opinions of the whole school
  • Make links with other sports providers including local secondary schools
  • ensure that any external coaches are of a similar high standard to our own teachers
  • Introduce new and diverse sports to encourage more pupils to participate
  • give extra support to pupils who are gifted and talented and pupils with Special Educational Needs
  • offer more after school clubs

Swimming report 2018 - 2019

Schools are required to report on Year 6 pupils meeting the national curriculum requirement to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres, use a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.  At Primrose Hill Primary Academy we invest in ensuring identified pupils are given every opportunity to become proficient swimmers.  Following a block of lessons for 6 weeks over Term 1 in 2018 - 2019, pupils were identified as needing further support. A further block of one hour lessons were arranged in Term 3 in 2019.  Of this 20% in 2019, 91% were then able to swim proficiently and at least 25m.
