Primary School PE and School Sport Premium Funding
The government is determined to secure a significant and lasting legacy from the very successful 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games that were held in London. In April 2013, the Government announced new funding for physical education (PE) and sport; Glen Park Primary will receive approximately £20,000 in the 2021-2022 academic year. Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
In planning the allocation of this grant, Glen Park Primary has consulted the following Ofsted documents:
“Beyond 2012 – outstanding physical education for all.”
“Inspecting primary school PE and school sport: new funding.”
Below is a summary of ways in which this funding is allocated at Glen Park Primary alongside an evaluation of the impact that it has had upon our pupils lifestyles and health and well-being. Please click on the link below to access these documents:

The purpose of our PE curriculum
At Glen Park Primary School we recognise the importance of PE and Physical Activity and it is an integral part of our curriculum.
- We intend to offer a curriculum that allows all children to be inspired to lead healthy, physically active lives, both now and in the future.
- We believe that physical education is a vehicle for children to develop physically, socially, creatively, personally and cognitively. Therefore, we believe that our children should be physically active every day, whether through daily physical activity, P.E. lessons, breaktimes or extra-curricular activities.
We fully adhere to the aims of the National Curriculum for physical education to ensure that children will be taught from the early years to develop a foundation of fundamental skills that allow children the basic skills to become physically literate. As they progress through the school, these fundamentals will be essential to their continued development through a broad range of sports and activities that we offer
By the end of Year 6, all children will have attended swimming lessons; learnt a range of strokes, safe self-rescue and be able to confidently swim a minimum of 25m. Where possible, physical activity will be present in wider areas of the curriculum to re-enforce the importance of physical health and wellbeing.
We are delighted to have been awarded with the School Games Gold Mark for the past three years in recognition of our high quality provision and commitment to and the development of competition, school sport and physical education.
Glen Park Sporting Success
January 2022 - We are so proud of our netball team who participated in a bee netball competition. They did incredibly well and have got through to the county final! Very well done!
January 2022 - A group of Key Stage 2 children experienced a fun day of alternative sports when they had a chance to try archery, boccia and futsal. All of the children represented the school excellently.
December 2021 - Our gymnastics club have been busy perfecting their gymnastics sequence ready for their next competition in a few weeks. Good Luck!
September 2021 - We were very privileged to have a visit from an ex pupil today. David King, who is an Olympic hurdler. He was very successful and reached the semi finals! He came to talk to all of the children in assembly and told them how he was inspired at Glen Park! He then ran some PE sessions for our children where they 'had a go' at completing the hurdles. Who knows, maybe there will be some more future Olympians amongst us?
September 2021 - We now have fully trained play leaders, who are working hard to keep our key stage 1 children active at playtimes. Well done play leaders!
April 2021 - We are pleased to announce that from after Easter we will recommence our after school sports clubs with Argyle and Premier Sport. To meet current covid guidelines these will remain in year group bubbles.
March 2020 - A super well done to our KS2 swimming team who competed in their first swimming gala at the life centre earlier this month. Our team consisted of mainly Year 4 children who were competing against a lot of older and physically stronger Year 6s. However, their determination and team spirit was outstanding. All enjoyed the experience of such a large event and we can't wait to see them competing in the coming years!
January/February 2020 - We have had another successful term of competitions this term. Our children took part in an alternative sports festival at Chaddlewood which they really enjoyed. They also competed in a Dodgeball competition at Woodford and a Futsal event at Borindgon. All of our children represented the school well and thoroughly enjoyed competing in these events. Well done!
