Primary Sports Funding
Primary Schools receive Physical Education and Sport Premium funding based on the number of pupils in Years One to Six. The money has been provided to enable schools to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of physical education and sports they offer.
Offmore Primary School fully understands the vital role physical development and sport play in a child’s education. As part of our on going evaluation of our curriculum we look carefully at how we can improve the physical development of our children and the provision we offer our children.
We encourage all children to have an active lifestyle and take part in school clubs, competitions and events. We understand that there are so many benefits for giving children the skills to be healthy fit individuals. We use sport and team work to enhance all learning skills and to ensure mental health and wellbeing are fit and healthy too !
Strategic Use of Funding:
- Increase teachers’ subject knowledge so that there is consistently good teaching in PE.
- Promote approaches to learning that build physical development and core skills as integral elements
- Achieve high participation for all and improve performance, including the promotion of elite performers
- Help combat the rising rate of sedentary lifestyles and childhood obesity by successfully implementing strategies to promote pupils’ health and well-being
- Create a culture where physical development and sport are valued.
We have been awarded the School Games Silver Award. This award recognises the sporting opportunities provided by the school through: after school clubs, house and inter-school competitions such as our 3/4 tag rugby festival ,activities provided at break and lunchtimes.
In the year 2019-2020 we are absolutely determined to turn our silver in to GOLD !
We are incredibly proud of our 'Sports Crew' a group of talented and committed children who are easily identified by their bright orange hoodies. The Sports crew support all of our sporting events such as sports day, inter house competitions and our termly whole school run around the estate. They plan events, put out equipment, encourage all participants and are excellent role models. They give up their time, have boundless energy and are a credit to our school.

Our exilerating new trim trail
The children are very lucky at Offmore to have had a new Trim Trail built up on the field. Trim Trails include equipment that strengthen the upper body, lower body, improve coordination and get your heart beating. Trim Trails are a very effective form of exercise.
"Performing physical activities can give a boost to children’s confidence around the playground and throughout the day. By committing towards an activity, children feel a lot happier with themselves when they can perform the activity with no problem. Exercise is known for improving confidence on the playground and encouraging children to interact with each other. These structures can also be used as props in role play and imaginative playground activities where kids make up their own games and scenes."
"As well as this, the feeling of satisfaction of completing a difficult task can be achieved through these types of activities. Knowing this, it’s easy to see why students can feel an increase in confidence on the playground and how supervisors and carers can notice this change. Out of most activities, trim trails always seem to do a great job at engaging children’s attention and helping them build on their confidence."
