School Games Mark


We celebrate competitive success in one another’s achievements whilst also embracing the importance of teamwork. Our school teams houses are Zeus, Neptune, Ra and Thor. These teams are used during intra school competitive sports events and competitions. We hold a whole school sports day every year during the Summer Term and parents are invited into school to watch their children compete and take part in events. This is a real highlight of the school calendar. We are proud to be showcasing our new sports pitch that we have invested in this year. This is having a positive impact on PE within school. The School Games Mark is a government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Participating in this process allows schools to evaluate their PE provision and assists them in developing an action plan for future progress. We are proud to report on the following awards for our dedication to School Games:

Sports Premium Funding 


How to use the PE and sport premium funding

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, physical activity and sport they provide. This includes any carried forward funding.

This means that you must use the PE and sport premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport that your school provides
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now are sustainable and will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

You should use the PE and sport premium to secure improvements in the following 5 key indicators.


1. Engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity, for example by:

  • providing targeted activities or support to involve and encourage the least active children
  • encouraging active play during break times and lunchtimes
  • establishing, extending or funding attendance of school sports clubs and activities and holiday clubs, or broadening the variety offered
  • adopting an active mile initiative
  • raising attainment in primary school swimming to meet requirements of the national curriculum before the end of key stage 2 - every child should leave primary school able to swim

2. The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement, for example by:

  • actively encourage pupils to take on leadership or volunteer roles that support the delivery of sport and physical activity within the school (such as ‘sports leader’ or peer-mentoring schemes)
  • embedding physical activity into the school day through encouraging active travel to and from school, active break times and holding active lessons and teaching

3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport, for example by:

  • providing staff with professional development, mentoring, appropriate training and resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively to all pupils, and embed physical activity across your school
  • hiring qualified sports coaches and PE specialists to work alongside teachers to enhance or extend current opportunities offered to pupils - teachers should learn from coaches the necessary skills to be able to teach these new sports and physical activities effectively

4. Broader experience of a range of sports and physical activities offered to all pupils, for example by:

  • introducing a new range of sports and physical activities to encourage more pupils to take up sport and physical activities
  • partnering with other schools to run sports and physical activities and clubs
  • providing more and broadening the variety of extra-curricular physical activities after school in the 3 to 6pm window, delivered by the school or other local sports organisations

5. Increased participation in competitive sport, for example by:

  • increasing and actively encouraging pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • organising more sport competitions or tournaments within the school
  • coordinating and entering more sport competitions or tournaments across the local area, including those run by sporting organisations


Raising attainment in primary school swimming

Swimming and water safety are a national curriculum requirement. It is required that by the end of key stage 2, pupils should be taught to:

  • swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
  • use a range of strokes effectively, for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke
  • perform a safe self-rescue in different water-based situations

You can use the PE and sport premium to fund the professional development and training that is available to schools to train staff to support high quality swimming and water safety lessons for their pupils.

You can also use the PE and sport premium to provide additional top-up swimming lessons to pupils who have not been able to meet the national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety - after the delivery of core swimming and water safety lessons.

Schools are required to publish information on the percentage of pupils in year 6 who met each of the 3 national curriculum requirements.
