PE and Sport at Romanby Primary School

Between 2013 and 2020, all UK schools will 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.
  • Every few years, we host a Community Sports Day, where representatives from local clubs and organisations are invited in to 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.


Our school has been allocated £18,620 in 2018/19, which will be spent in line with the following projects:

•    Additional training for all staff in PE, games, gymnastics and dance.
•    Hiring specialist qualified sports coaches to work alongside all teachers and with all pupils throughout the year.
•    Providing cover to release teachers for professional development in PE and sport and to attend inter school competitions.
•    Running sports competitions and Community Sports Days in school, involving local clubs.
•    To provide additional swimming lessons to ensure all pupils have the opportunity to leave Year 6 as able swimmers.
•    Providing places for pupils in after school sports clubs.
•    Updating school sports and playtime equipment, including additional cycle and scooter storage racks, to promote bike and scoot to school.
•    Sports Premium Funding has been used to employ a School Games Organiser (Duncan Burgess) for 16 different inter school events accommodating pupils from Reception to Year 6.  Some of the KS2 events lead on a pathway to the School Games County Finals.

We have also been awarded ​the Gold level for the Sainsbury's School Games Mark for our sport provision.  This 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.

Last year we took part in fourteen inter-school sports competitions.  Of these events we had teams progress to the area finals in five competitions and another two in which we had teams or individuals represented us at the county finals.


We have a number of sports clubs which are either at lunchtime or after school.  We try to alternate the clubs that are running to encourage as many children as possible to try new sports. 


We are currently using Sport Premium funding to purchase new equipment and give staff continuing professional development so that there is a permanent benefit to the children once the funding comes to an end.  We also use this funding to pay for transport to events rather than ask parents for financial contributions. 


Most recently, we have trained pupils in Year 5 and 6 as Play leaders and Change 4 Life Champions, to run lunchtime and playtime activity sessions for younger children.
