At Swillington Primary School, we are committed to delivering a high-quality PE and sports curriculum and promoting healthy and active lifestyles. We aim to develop skills and knowledge through participation in diverse and varied physical activities and sports, as well as to improve fitness and develop social skills.
In order to promote health and fitness, the government allocated £8000 (plus £5 per pupil) to all primary schools. 25% of primary schools' sport premium funding has been used centrally for a coordinated vision across the Brigshaw Learning Partnership and Trust. This is collaborative work across seven schools.
This has been used for the following purposes.
An increased range of inter-school sports competitions for all schools in the Trust, including:
More able and talented PE workshops. Growth mindset, SAQ, Diet, Trip to a bouldering climbing centre to stretch and challenge students.
Swillington Primary is part of the Sainsbury’s School Games. The Sainsbury’s School Games is a unique opportunity to motivate and inspire millions of young people across the country to take part in more competitive school sport.
The Games are made up of three levels of activity: competition in schools, between schools, and at a county/area level.
The Games are designed to build on the magic of 2012 to enable every school and child to participate in competitive sports, including meaningful opportunities for disabled youngsters.
In 2014-15, our aim was to achieve ‘Bronze School Games Award’ by Christmas, and we in fact, achieved the ‘Silver School Games Award’. Even better, in 2016 we received the ‘Gold School Games Award’!
