Abbotswood Primary School

Together We Aim High, Believe and Achieve

PE and Sport Premium

       

Rational (Intent)

 

At Abbotswood, our vision is to provide engaging opportunities for children to experience high quality Physical Education and school sport through personal challenge and competition that will lead to life-long participation. 

PE plays a vital role in promoting physical activities and a healthy lifestyle in a positive and enjoyable way for all pupils. Our curriculum aims to develop and challenge pupils’ abilities in a range of physical activities and sports – helping them to develop their personal fitness, understand the importance of a healthy lifestyle and learn important life skills such as teamwork, honesty and perseverance.

How do we teach PE at Abbotswood? (Implementation)

 

Abbotswood, we achieve the target of two hours of taught PE a week. 

 

We currently use PE Planning as our stimuli for PE lessons. The scheme covers all areas of the National Curriculum and ensures that there is progression of skills throughout each sport/unit which are developed as the children progress through the school. Pupils at Abbotswood are therefore given the chance to develop their fundamental skills across a whole range of sports, including: Dance, Gymnastics, Athletics and Tag Rugby to name a few. 

 

At Abbotswood, we also work in partnership with Bristol Forever Sports, whose specialist sports coaches teach PE sessions for three afternoons a week. This allows the children the opportunity to be exposed to new sports, taught by specialised teachers, as well as providing continued professional development for teachers. The after school sessions organised by the coaches are also extremely popular, meaning our children get the chance to experience new sports outside of the classroom too. They are also given lots of opportunities to take part in various competitions against other schools, led by Bristol Sport, during their time at Abbotswood - we've even been lucky enough to host a few on our school grounds too!

 

We are also a member of the CSET partnership, whereby qualified coaches offer CPD for staff, carry out fundamental skills tests across the year groups and provide lots of opportunities for us to take part in local competitions.

 

As of July 2023, Abbotswood have been awarded Gold as part of the School Games Mark, something that we have worked really hard to achieve through giving our children as many opportunities as possible to develop an interest in, and improve, their love of sports and PE. We're really proud to have achieved this recognition! 

How is PE assessed? (Impact)

 

At the end of each unit, we assess the children against the taught, fundamental skills for the sport they have been learning that term. Using our PE Planning scheme allows us to easily identify those children who have achieved the key learning for each unit.

 

Alongside our CSET coaches, we assess each child against fundamental agility skills. Using the results, we have then targeted invention for those who require it. 

 

 

If you would like to find out more information about PE at Abbotswood, please contact Mrs Mehta-Jolliffe or Mr House.

Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding, as well as our progression map of skills for each year group.

 

Sportshall athletics

 

Last week, a group of Year 6s represented the school at a local athletics competition at Mangotsfield School. During the afternoon, the team took part in a whole host of relays (including the exhausting 6 lap relay!) and a variety of field events too.

They were brilliant, coming either 1st or 2nd in the majority of the activities! They showed great perseverance, determination and teamwork!

Thank you to the staff and parents who gave lifts to and from the event, it’s very much appreciated!

 

Abbotswood awarded GOLD in the School Games mark for our PE and sports provision! 

 

Go Team Abbotswood!

Forever Sport Netball School Games

 

On 19th June, the Year 6 netball team travelled to the Sports Complex at UWE for the Bristol Sport Netball School Games.

 

The girls played well from the offset, showing brilliant teamwork, communication and dedication. They played lots of schools from around the Bristol area, beating Bowsland Green 8 – 0! Some great goals from Ella and Jessica meant that Abbotswood dominated the match from the first whistle.

 

Grace and Lola demonstrated unbelievable defence skills throughout the group stages, working tirelessly against some tough opponents. The other schools struggled to get goals past them! (A special mention must be made to Jessica, who injured her finger quite badly in game one and went on to score two goals! What a trouper!)

 

Then came the finals, where we faced Birdwell. Having lost to them during the group stage, we knew that it could be a tall ask to come out on top but the girls saved their best until last. The Amelias were so pacey around the court that they just could not keep up with us! After a series of goals from Ella and Amelia A, Abbotswood took an easy victory of 6-0, coming 3rd place overall!

 

The progress that they have made as a team this year is undeniable – they showed that hard work absolutely pays off and did not get disheartened during our tougher matches. It was a brilliant morning and a great way to end the Year 6 netball season!

 

Year 6 Netball team:

Amelia A (C), Amelia W, Ella, Destiny, Rebekah, Lily, Jessica, Lola, Grace, Leah

 

Go Team Abbotswood!

Year 6 Quadkids

 

A group of Year 6s took part in a Quadkids athletics event at Yate Outdoor Sports Complex. They took part in four events: 75m sprint, vortex throw, standing long jump and the (dreaded!) 600m.

The team were so enthusiastic and keen to get going, despite the immense heat and threat of thunderstorms overhead!

They were all so supportive of one another and had a great afternoon sampling the different disciplines. They all performed brilliantly in the sprint – a special mention to Ewan, who was just pipped at the post for 2nd place in his heat! Lily and Jacob proved that they are long jump masters – both nearing 200cm for their jump – so springy! Harry was the ultimate vortex thrower, with a few of his flying far past the huge measuring tapes!

Grit, determination and good pacing was required for the 600m. I’m not sure that any of Team Abbotswood were particularly looking forward to this one, but they all gave their absolute best and paced themselves brilliantly, with nobody shooting off and running out of steam by the end! The whole team showed a great sense of pride and worked so well as a team to support each other over the finishing line.

 

Team Abbotswood finished 3rd overall!

Thank you, as always, to the parents who gave lifts and provided support on the day!

Year 6 Netball Tournament

On Tuesday, our Year 6 Netball team took part in their first ever round of matches! The girls were all so excited to be taking part at the event at Mangotsfield secondary school which was clear in their attitude and approach to all of their games. They played incredibly well (especially for a team who had never played a single game against another school before!) finishing 3rd in their half of the draw.

A brilliant opening game against Mangotsfield Primary (and a hat trick of goals from Ella) was exactly what they needed to get started. Playing the home team on their court is never easy, but the girls worked together and communicated well to make it look simple.

Next up was St Anne’s, where, despite eventually conceding one goal, Team Abbotswood again played so well. Our defence was strong against a pretty evenly matched side.

They then faced St Stephens, who perform notoriously well in a lot of their sports fixtures. Abbotswood put up an amazing fight to see them to a draw. Lola and Ella defended particularly well against a very experienced side. They were also the eventual winners, so we can take pride in the fact that they didn’t get a goal past us!

Then came our final match against The Tynings to secure 5th or 6th place. As they did throughout the whole event, the girls did not give up the fight with the whole team working hard right up until the final whistle.

Overall results:

Abbotswood 3 - 1 Mangotsfield

Abbotswood 0 - 1 St Anne’s

Abbotswood 0 - 0 St Stephens

Abbotswood 0 - 4 The Tynings

Abbotswood 6th overall

We are incredibly proud of how well the girls came together as a team, showed infectious enthusiasm and great perseverance when faced with more experienced players. Well done Team Abbotswood and let’s hope for even more success in our league games throughout the rest of the year!

Thank you to all of the parents who came along to support!

Key Stage Two Termly Challenge

 

Thank you to the Sports Council for updating the tracking graph following our term 2 challenge!

KS2 Termly PE Challenge

 

On Monday, all children in Key Stage Two took part in this term’s PE challenge. This term, the Sports Council put the children’s coordination skills to the test as they challenged each team to pass a ball around their body as many times as possible in 30 seconds.

Thank you to the Sports Council members for totalling up the scores and updating the Tracking Graph!

 

The final results were:

4th Hutch with 1044 passes

3rd Shaun with 1095 passes

2nd Wallace with 1154 passes

1st Gromit with 1247 passes

 

Term 3’s challenge will be a speed bounce!

Year 6 Athletics

 

Last week, a group of Year 6s took part in a Sportshall Athletics competition at Mangotsfield secondary school. The group showed great determination and teamwork across a whole range of events, including a variety of relays, jumping events and throwing events. The children’s behaviour, as always, was exceptional and they listened and followed instructions (in the very loud hall!) brilliantly. Thank you to all of the parents who came along to support and offer lifts, we really couldn’t have done it without you!

FOOTBALL

 

ABBOTSWOOD MAKE IT TO FINALS DAY!

 

 

 

On Thursday 3rd November, the Abbotswood football team took part in the South Glos Schools tournament at the Gloucester Football Association. 


 

The boys were handed a tough group, facing St Michael's (Winterbourne) and Hanham Abbots, two teams who have knocked us out of the cup in previous years, as well as Wheatfield and Stanbridge. 


 

Our first game was up against St Michael's. It was a closely fought contest where both teams had an even share of possession and chances. Ronnie made some good saves with the sun in his eyes and Ethan kept things tight at the back to ensure that we finished the game 0-0. A solid start!


 

Our second game was against Wheatfield and Abbotswood were on top from the off - pressuring the goalkeeper into a mistake which was capitalised on by Khaleef. The boys played some great football, at times playing all the way back to Ronnie in goal and further goals from Seb, Harley and Jax meant that the game ended 5-0.


 

We then faced a stern test against Hanham Abbots, a large school with good pedigree for doing well in football competitions. The boys rode their luck at times, but showed courage on the ball and good game management to ensure that we finished up 2-0 winners, with Harley smashing in the opener and Seb bagging another goal. 


 

This left us on 7 points from three games and we went into our final match against Stanbridge (also on 7 points) needing a result to take us through to Finals Day. Ewan made some strong challenges in midfield and was tireless in helping out the defence - his performances across the tournament deserved a goal. However, it was Charlie who managed to break free from his marker to poke the ball home from close range in the final few minutes of the match to ensure that Abbotswood would win the group and head home without conceding a single goal.


 

Finals Day will be played in three week's time! Here's hoping for another successful outing. Either way, this is the furthest the Abbotswood football team have been for a number of years!


 

Squad: Ronnie (c), Ethan, Charlie, Jax, Ewan, Harley, Seb, Khaleef.

TAG RUGBY

Year 5/6 Tag Rugby League 22-23 Round 2

 

On Monday 7th November, the Abbotswood Tag Rugby team were back at Mangotsfield Secondary School for another instalment of the Tag Rugby League.

 

We began with a tight game against The Park where the team eventually ran out 3-2 winners with a late try sealing it. We then backed this strong start up with a 4-0 win against Lyde Green and finished up with a tight 3-3 draw against a highly motivated Christchurch Hanham – I’m sure we will be playing off against them for the trophy in the new year.

 

Our results meant that we topped the initial group and went on to play the other group winners. The team showed great resilience against Barrs Court and perhaps should have won, but instead finished up level at 4-4 and then competed till the last play of the game to beat St Stephen’s Juniors 3-2.

 

There were a few changes to the team that finished top in the first round, but no lack in enthusiasm and competitiveness. They showed excellent sportsmanship and go into the new year 5 points clear at the top of the league.

 

Squad: Erin, Lexie, Amelia, Ronnie, Jax, Seb, Alex, Ewan, Khaleef, Tyler, Ethan, Fin, Jacob.

 

 

Year 5/6 Tag Rugby League 22-23 Round 1

 

On Monday 10th October, Abbotswood entered the first round of the Tag-Rugby League at Mangotsfield Secondary School. The team kicked things off with a 2-0 win against St Stephens Juniors, followed up with a 1-1 draw against Stanbridge. They finished the group stage with a 3-1 win against Barrs Court finishing top of the group.

 

We then entered a secondary group where we played the other two schools who had finished top. We drew 3-3 with Beacon Rise and then 2-2 with Mangotsfield and finished top of the overall competition on try difference.

 

The children played with fantastic pace and enthusiasm, quickly getting the six tags required for a turn-over and then, but for a few feet in touch, were ruthless in attack.

 

Roll on to Round 2!


Squad: Leo, Harley G, Erin, Amelia A, Lexie, Jax, Ronnie (c), Ethan W, Fin, Jacob, Seb.

Sports Leaders

Tag Rugby at Dings

CSET training with Year 5 and 6

On Tuesday 23rd November, a group of Year 5s and 6s took part in an indoor athletics competition at Yate Academy. There was a whole range of events to compete in, including multiple relays, triple jump, javelin and long jump. The children came up against some tough competitors from six others schools but they gave their absolute all and demonstrated great perseverance and teamwork throughout the evening.

 

Well done Team Abbotswood!

Sports' Week

 

We have had such a busy week, full of different activities each day to reach our 60 minutes of physical activity! Here are just a few photos of what we have been up to!

 

Sports' day

We brought our bikes and scooters in and rode around the school field and playground!

We had cricket taster sessions from Gloucester cricket!

Athletic Agility

Years 1-4 have had visits from our CSET coaches, Alex and Dean, to test our athletic abilities. We carried out a range of tasks including balance beam, throwing a weighted ball, speed bounce among others! 

CSET Sports Leaders

Groups of children from each Key Stage Two class were chosen to be their year group’s Sports Leaders. They took part in training with Alex and Dean, our CSET coaches, to learn about and understand the importance of warm ups. The children were taught the acronym STEP (Space, Task, Equipment, People) and how to plan their own warm up games! They then demonstrated their skills by showing their class what they had learned. We are hoping that there will be plenty of opportunities for the Sports Leaders to organise competitions between year groups when we are allowed to mix bubbles!

 

CSET Cross Country

 

This year, we have joined the CSET sports partnership and have taken part in our first virtual sports competition of the year: cross country! All year groups took part over a couple of weeks and worked in small teams to complete laps of the course. We all had such a great time and definitely approved our pacing skills each week! The results are in and Abbotswood placed an amazing 5th out of all of the local schools who took part and completing 167 miles! A great achievement, well done everyone!

 

 

2020-21

Abbotswood 7 - 0 Filton Avenue

 

On a chilly March Monday evening, Abbotswood welcomed Filton Avenue Primary to the Abbotswood Arena. The pitch was in fine condition after our prolonged winter break and the children were keen to get back in action.

 

The game kicked off and Abbotswood controlled the early phases of the game, moving the ball well across the pitch (avoiding the boggiest patches) and holding their shape well in defence. Oliver Ball made an accomplished start and made a few crucial tackles, stopping some early Filton attacks. It was not long before Abbotswood’s possession, positional play and clinical movement off the ball began to pay dividends, and the team found gaps in the Filton defence.

 

The game finished with Connor Walters scoring five goals, as well as one goal apiece for Corey McKeigue and Harri Robinson. The whole team played well, especially Alfie Lawrence who had a quieter night in goal. However, when he was called upon, he produced two or three excellent saves, preserving his clean sheet. The Year 6’s in particular put in an excellent display, showing real leadership and encouraging the younger, less experienced members of the squad.

 

Team: Connor Walters (c), Alfie Lawrence (GK), Archie Edwards (c), Oliver Ball (c), Leo Salter,

Harri Robinson, Harry Fews, Corey McKeigue, Sam Hayden, Lacey Rixon.

 

 

Our next game will be on Monday 9th March, also against Filton Avenue. We hope to see as many people as possible supporting the team!

St Chads 3 - 0 Abbotswood

 

Abbotswood travelled en masse to Patchway on Thursday 27th March to compete in the Girls Plate quarter final. It was amazing being able to take such a huge squad of enthusiastic and supportive girls to their first away football match.

 

Unfortunately, the result does not quite reflect the run of play, with St Chads scoring either side of half-time and then fending off an Abbotswood attack, before hitting us on the counter.

 

A special mention must go out to Maisie Wade, who was described as 'brutal' in defence, taking no prisoners and putting in a few bone-crunching challenges. Mr Jelf was very proud indeed. Another particular mention must go to Lacey Rixon who must have covered every blade of grass in a, quite literally, breath-taking performance!

 

Team: Phoebe Fraser (c), Nieve Brooker (GK), Sienna Palmer, Blossom De'Mar, Jess Robinson, Tamai Addlesee, Holly-Ann Walker, Tiana Robins, Ella-Mai Gilvear, Kayla Mead, Frankie Robinson, Emma Vowles, Lacey Rixon, Maisie Wade.

 

I am looking to organise more girls football matches in the future and we have another game in the diary for Wednesday 25th March against Wick.

 

 

Festival of Youth Sport Dance

 

On Wednesday 12th February, Miss Jones took a group of Year 3 and 4 children to Abbeywood Community School to compete in the annual Festival of Youth Dance. Mr Jelf and Miss Jolliffe were in the crowd and were amazed at how quickly the children had picked up the routine and how well they worked together. It was incredible to see them enjoying themselves and showing all of our school values! They were a credit to the school and their parents!

 

Mr Jelf managed to sneak a photograph from the back of the auditorium.

South Gloucestershire Schools Girls Cup

Abbotswood 1 - 6 Crossways

 

On Monday 11th November, Abbotswood hosted Crossways Primary school in the South Gloucestershire Schools Girls Cup. After a hurried practise at lunch time, the girls ran out onto the pitch full of enthusiasm, ready to tackle anything and anyone!

Many of our girls had not played football before, certainly not in a full seven-a-side game! I picked a large squad, so there was lots of rotation and, as I said, the girls were a real credit to the school.

 

Crossways came with a strong, physical side, full of quality and to begin with our girls struggled to match them. Crossways scored two quick goals and I was worried that our girls’ heads would drop. Thankfully, this was not the case and although Crossways scored another two goals in the first half, the Abbotswood team kept ferociously heading into tackles and closing down the space. Lacey Rixon encapsulated the whole performance – never backing down and constantly chasing after the ball.

 

Taylor Hunt and Blossom De’Mar defended brilliantly, whilst Maisie Wade continued to play the ball out calmly from the back. Nieve Brooker made some great saves and we started to grow in confidence as the half went on. Following a great tackle from captain, Phoebe Fraser, Millie Drew played the ball out of defence and it landed at Lacey’s feet. She ran past one, two, three defenders before slotting the ball past the Crossways goalkeeper. Abbotswood finished the first half firmly on top!

 

The ice-cold wind and a darkening sky meant the second half passed without any major incidents. Both teams fiercely competed over the ball in midfield, with Kayla Mead, Jaimie-Leigh Rixon, Evie Hazel and Sienna Palmer working hard at both ends of the pitch. Nieve made more fantastic saves, before Crossways put the game beyond doubt with two late second-half goals.

 

An amazing effort from an Abbotswood team who have never played before! There will be more games after Christmas, when the weather is a little warmer and the evenings are a little brighter!

English School's South Gloucestershire Cup.

Abbotswood Make Semis For First Time! 

On Thursday 7th November, the Abbotswood boys football squad headed to Almondsbury for the annual English Schools competition. The  last time we were at the tournament, we lost every game, only scoring one goal.

 

During the group games, the boys managed to scrap out a 0-0 draw against St Stephens, who were semi finalists last year, and probably should have won the game with an excellent midfield performance from Riley Webb. In our second game, we defeated Filton Orchard 3-0, although it could easily have been more, with Connor Walters scoring a hat-trick. Our third group game was against another regular winner of football tournaments across South Gloucestershire – Bromley Heath. Somehow, the boys managed to score a brilliant team goal early on and then, with huge thanks to Alfie Lawrence in goal, managed to cling on to the 1-0 win. We finished the group by beating St Michael’s 3-0, with Harri Robinson putting in an incredible performance on the right of midfield.

 

We were into the quarter finals – unchartered territory. We were drawn against Blackhorse Primary and, after a hard fought 0-0 with Harry Fews and Oliver Ball defending with their lives, we entered extra-time and eventually – penalties. We scored all three of our penalties, with Max May scoring the match winning spot kick.

 

Semi finals! Unfortunately, this is where the journey ended with our boys coming up a little short, quite literally, against a giant Hanham Abbots team. Hanham Abbots have won the entire tournament a record amount of times in the past ten years.

 

We look forward to meeting them again in the Schools Cup in a few week’s time, with a stronger squad and an extra incentive.

 

Squad:

South Gloucestershire Tag Rugby Tournament

 

On the 22nd October, we took seventeen children to a tag rugby tournament at Aretians RFC. Some had played in tournaments before, whilst some were playing the game properly for the first time. The children were split into two teams.

 

Abbotswood A kicked off the tournament in style with a cracking 5-0 win over Little Stoke. Archie and Leo managed to bag two tries each, with Sam running in another for good measure. Millie was also unlucky and had a try overruled! In their second game, the grudge match against Wick, unfortunately the team came out second best, losing 3-2 with a last minute try. Leo and Finley managed to cross the try line for a try each. Phoebe managed to grab a load of tags and Holly Ann made some excellent yards, pushing the team up the field. In the team’s final game, Abbotswood faced up against St Chads. It was a much closer game and fortunately we ran out 5-3 winners. Archie, Sam, Ryley and Harry were the try scorers, whilst Finley was on a tagging mission against the other team.

 

Abbotswood B had to wait a while to begin the tournament – beating Holy Trinity 7-0. Four tries from Max and one each for Harri, Riley and Corey sealed the victory. Kyra led the team well and the team were ferocious in defence, keeping a rare clean sheet! In our second match against Woodlands, the team were let off early on after an opposition player ran into touch before scoring a try. They bounced back well and ran in an unanswered four tries before Woodlands got on the scoresheet. A further two tries ensured we ran out 6-1 winners. Following the game, Jess said, “I think tag rugby is my favourite sport!” The final game saw Abbotswood B come up against another team from Little Stoke Primary. Blossom managed to tag a number of their players before Mateu grabbed a try in the corner. Further tries from Jess, Riley, Max and Harri ensured we ran out 5-3 winners.

 

After the tournament, the children decided in their teams who they thought deserved a medal for displaying the values of rugby – teamwork, encouragement and enjoyment. Abbotswood A voted for Phoebe, whilst Abbotswood B voted for Mateu.

 

A huge thanks to Mr Edwards, Mr Capell and Mrs Olsen for coming along, as well as all the parents who came to support the team!

 

Abbotswood A – Phoebe, Harry, Sam, Finley, Ryley, Millie, Holly Ann, Leo, Archie

Abbotswood B – Riley, Harri, Mateu, Jess, Kyra, Blossom, Max, Corey

Football match vs Barrs Court

Abbotswood Primary School

Vs

Barrs Court Primary School

 

We played a very intense football match against Barrs Court – they were a tough opponent. We won 4-2 at full time with Corey scoring two in the 1st half, meaning we were 2-0 up at half time. Sam scored one more in the 2nd half taking us 3-0 up. Our team thought we had secured the win, but they made a comeback making it 3-2. With only a couple of minutes left, Harri scored the final goal making it 4-2 at full time. As we all shook hands, their captain cheered us off the pitch.

 

Position:

Goal Keeper: Harry F.

Defence: Oliver, Archie, Dylan.

Midfield: Riley W, Zack, Charlie.

Attack: Corey, Harri, Ronnie, Sam.

 

Also, Mr Jelf is an awesome coach!

Judo

 

Year 1, 2 and 3 were lucky enough to have a free Judo taster session from Judo John! 

Sports Week

 

To celebrate National Sports Week, we took part in LOTS of sporting activities throughout the week! We began every day with a whole school Daily Mile with our parents, to count towards our 60 minutes of activity a day! We also dedicated whole afternoons to PE, where we were all given different choices of the sports we'd like to play.

Sports Day was a great success too! Everyone had a great time and showed good team spirit. Well done to team Hutch who were the winning team overall!

To end our week, we were allowed to bring our bikes and scooters into school and spent the afternoon having fun on our wheels! 

Have a look at just some of the photos from our week below:

Celebration of Sport Festival

 

On Monday, some of Year 5 took part in a Festival of Sport at Ashton Gate stadium, which was organised by the Bristol Sport coaches. The children took part in a huge number of sports against hundreds of other children from in and around Bristol, ranging from football to handball to gymnastics! It was a great day and the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves!

Bristol Flyers Basketball

 

Throughout term 4, Year 5/6 have been given to opportunity to participate in basketball training with the Bristol Flyers. Bristol Flyers Women's player Mai Zilbeti has been putting the classes through their paces. The morning is split into two halves, the first - a practical session with Mai, the second - a classroom based session with one of the club's community coaches. In the classroom based session, the children have been building on what they learnt last term in topic - the circulatory system - as well as how to lead a healthy, active life.

 

A group of year 5/6 girls took part in a netball tournament at Brimsham School. The competition was tough, but the girls showed great teamwork and perseverance throughout. They didn’t even let a fire drill phase them! They should all be really proud of themselves as we have only had a few practise sessions!

Well done!

Key Stage 2 Netball

 

This week, the sports council and Miss Jolliffe organised an end of term netball tournament for key stage 2. Despite the freezing conditions, the turnout was huge! All teams played really well and demonstrated good teamwork. Lots of the matches were really close but the eventual winners were team Shaun! Well done to everyone who took part! 

Jailbreak Festival

 

Last week, a team of year 4s took part in a local Jailbreak competition, organised by Bristol Sport. The children had an amazing morning where they represented the school brilliantly and showed strong teamwork and determination. They did not lose a single match, despite the zero degree weather! Well done to all!

Sports Council

 

Our Sports Council for 2018-19 have the responsibility of promoting PE and physical activity across the school, through organising intra-level competitions between our school houses. In term 2, the Sports Council will be helping run a lunchtime netball club and will end the term with intra-school netball tournament! The council is comprised of children from across Key Stage 2 who have a keen interest in sport both inside and outside of school. 

 

Photo coming soon!

Sports Clubs

 

Part of our PE and Sports Premium funding looks to equip staff with the skills and confidence to teach a wide range of sports within PE sessions. To enable this, we have dedicated a portion of the funding to employing in-house sports coaches from Forever Sport, who run after school clubs, as well as mentoring staff within timetabled PE sessions. Forever Sport utilises the breadth of coaching expertise and experience available from the Bristol Sport stable of sports, their partner charities and external sporting bodies to provide a unique and comprehensive primary school physical education and sports coaching programme.

 

The after school clubs are led by our head coach, Josh, alongside sport specialist coaches.
