PE and Sport Premium
Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
The Sports Premium is funding in addition to the school’s budget and must be spent on improving the provision of PE and Sport in school. At Euxton Primrose Hill we place high emphasis on developing rounded pupils who are fit and ready to learn and welcome the additional funding to improve PE in our school.
We are delighted to announce that Euxton Primrose Hill has been awarded the School Games Gold Award for the fifth consecutive academic year (2014/15, 2015/16, 2016/17, 2017/2018, 2018/19) – a phenomenal achievement. In addition we have now been awarded the School Games Platinum Award in recognition of our outstanding impact in PE and Sport. Congratulations to all the staff and pupils for their hard work and effort in this achievement.
As a school, we have also been recognised by Chorley School Sports Partnership for our outstanding efforts in improving PE and Sport and have been the following:
Winners: Best New Club (Change4Life) and Fair Play Awards.
Runner-Up: Whole School Impact, Participation (twice) and Best Health and Wellbeing School Awards.
Our pupils and parents have really appreciated the impact that we have had through our focus on PE/Sport/Health. Our Pupil/Parent Attitude Questionnaires included several comments about this such as:
I love the new run a mile track - it makes me feel like a real athlete.
I really enjoyed trying lots of different sports because it was good for us, gave us more exercise and made me realize that I can do more than I thought I could.
It’s good to try different activities and be active because if you enjoy them you will carry on doing them and that’s healthy.
I started Taekwondo at school and then went to the club. I’m enjoying it and I’m now a yellow belt.
I tried tennis at breakfast club and I loved it.
The school provides a good array of sports.
The children are encouraged to be active and not just work on the computers.
The emphasis on sport and healthy eating by school is great.
School promotes an active lifestyle.
School offers plenty of after school sports clubs.
Kids like sports sessions – it’s great that the school has a dedicated sports teacher.
Extra out of school clubs are fantastic and there is a very good variety.
The extra sport lesson done at lunchtime is a fantastic extra exercise opportunity for the children.
