PE and Sport at Romanby Primary School

All UK schools receive funding from the Department for Education.  The purpose of the funding is to improve the provision of PE and school sport.

Our school already has a well-established positive attitude towards sport and exercise and pupils are given lots of opportunities in school to try new activities, with a strong emphasis on participation and enjoyment.

  • PE lessons are aimed at developing skills that can easily be transferred into individual and team sports, and there are a number of staff with specific skills to share knowledge and expertise with colleagues and across the school. Every child takes part in at least two hours of PE per week, including games, athletics, gymnastics, dance and outdoor and adventurous activities. Children have the opportunity to have swimming lessons in Year 1/2 and Year 3 /4, with catch up lessons available, if required, in Year 5 and 6.
  • As well as holding our own Inter Team sports matches and a very successful annual School Games our school aims to enter as many Inter School competitions as possible, involving children of ranging age and abilities. We have enjoyed lots of success in cross country, football, cricket, hockey, netball, swimming and tag rugby over a long period, with regular appearances at Area and County finals.
  • We offer a wide range of lunchtime and after school sports clubs throughout the year for all age groups, including gymnastics, tennis and football, which run all year round, and cricket, rounders and running during the summer.
  • Representatives from local clubs and organisations are also invited into school to share their skill and expertise with the children. This has proved to be very successful in terms of enjoyment and development for the children and has also given the clubs a fantastic opportunity to promote themselves to a captive audience, which has resulted in increased membership and participation.














Our school has opted in to the Change 4 Life Scheme which provides opportunities for lunchtime and after school activities led by staff and our Young Sports Leaders from Year 5 and 6.


We have also been awarded ​the Gold level for the  School Games Mark for our sport provision.  This is a Government led awards scheme launched to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community.
