Springvale Primary School
Physical Education and Sport
Our school aims to inspire children to develop a love of physical activity and sport. Through good physical education, whole school values and a whole child approach, we aim to nurture confident, resilient children who will strive for their personal best.
We provide our children with a range of active experiences and clubs. During these activities, we encourage them to obtain the values and skills which allow them to celebrate and respect the success of others, as well as modestly celebrating their own successes and feeling proud. We aim to ensure that our delivery of physical education allows all children to have the skills and mindset to leave primary school with the capabilities to be successful in sporting challenges and in active, healthy lifestyles at secondary school and life beyond.
We strive to educate both our children and families to develop a greater understanding on how to live healthy lifestyles and make healthy choices. We are dedicated to ensuring healthy minds as well as bodies and will continue to support our children’s well-being.
We have strong links with local clubs and partnerships within our community and with other schools, to ensure the children can develop their love of sport and take part in competitive activities.
School Sports Premium Funding
The Government is providing each primary school throughout England with additional funding which is to be spent on improving the sports provision within schools. At Springvale Primary School we believe a high quality PE curriculum should be an integral part of the whole school curriculum and one that staff, pupils and parents understand and can contribute to. Our school recognises the values that a high quality PE and school sport curriculum gives pupils. Our spending plan is published each Spring in the follow place:
We have created a local sports partnership to ensure that all children from Y1-Y6 can access high quality PE and competitions during the year. The school uses a set of 'passport' documents to log their sporting activities and to ensure that all groups of pupils are engaged in sports.There are many local events taking part this term that are open to 10 primary schools which include football, multi-skills, basketball, cross-country, orienteering, boot camp, tough mudder events, etc.
We have been awarded the School Games Gold Award in recognition:
– of our school’s provision for pupils to engage in 2 hours of sporting activities per week;
– that we engage at least 50% of pupils in extra curricular sport;
– that we provide appropriate competition level (through inter school activities);
– that at least 5% of children lead and officiate school games.

Our Sports Day is themed around the Olympics and all children take part in four events and then some fun team games and relays where collaboration is crucial. Individual awards are presented as well as a house team competition running through the whole day. We also award special medals for sporting attitudes that are spotted during the event. Our Sports Awards are held annually to recognise the progress, achievement and leadership of all pupils in a range of sports and through active travel commitments.
