Enabling children to flourish and succeed

PE and Sports Premium

Sports at our school


Specialist sports coaches teach PE each week teaching a range of sports to all children in Reception, KS1 and KS2. This allows us to raise the profile of PE and to develop further the quality of teaching and learning within our broad, rich and engaging PE curriculum.


This also enables us to develop the quality of sports played and increase the participation of pupils in sports and games. This is further enhanced by our provision of  free sports sessions which are available to all children daily at 8am.


Our pupils take part in a range of local school games competitions and events throughout the year, including opportunities offered from the Melton Sports Partnership and the Vale of Belvoir.


In addition to high quality sport the children also participate in Play Leader training, Fundamental Movement, gymnastics and swimming. 


For more information, please see our curriculum section.




Children in KS2 have weekly swimming lessons during one half term each year. Children attend lessons at the Leisure Centre in Melton Mowbray, where there are two pools for all abilities. The children are taught by fully qualified swimming instructors. Children work towards specific targets. Competent swimmers are taught aspects of personal survival, whilst new swimmers are sensitively encouraged to feel safe in the water before learning correct strokes and water skills.



Sports Premium

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum to provide substantial primary school sport funding.


This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school Headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.


The aim of this funding is to improve lifestyles and tackle obesity and other health related issues.
