The Mayflower Primary School

P.E.and Sport Premium

At Mayflower Primary School, we believe that Physical Education and Sport play a vital role in the physical, emotional and intellectual development of children. Physical Education and Sport are central in giving children the knowledge and understanding in order to make a positive impact on their own health and well-being.

Sports Provision

The physical education curriculum at Mayflower Primary School aims to provide children with the opportunity to take part in a wide range of sports and physical activities, carried out in a safe and supportive environment where effort and hard work, as well as success, is celebrated. 


The new National Curriculum states that physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  • are physically active for sustained periods of time
  • engage in competitive sports and activities
  • lead healthy, active lives.

(National Curriculum for Physical Education) (2014)


At Mayflower Primary School children are taught different skills within each Key Stage following the progression of the New National Curriculum (2014).

At Key Stage 1 children are taught to:

  • master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities
  •  participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending
  • perform dances using simple movement patterns

At Key Stage 2 children are taught to:

  • use running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination
  •  play competitive games, modified where appropriate [for example, badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders and tennis], and apply basic principles suitable for attacking and defending
  • develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance [for example, through athletics and gymnastics]
  • perform dances using a range of movement patterns
  • take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team
  • compare their performances with previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best.

Impact of Sports Premium

We aim for more children to be both engaged in and enjoying sporting activity and physical exercise. To ensure that this is undertaken we will be using our Sports Premium funding to

  • Monitor how well used the new equipment is and how many children take up the opportunity of after-school clubs and activities. 
  • Provide opportunities for our Year 3 and 4 pupils to have swimming lessons in order that more of our children will be able to swim at least 25 metres by the time they leave our school.
  • Identify CPD across the school and provide the necessary training needed.
  • Give children the opportunity to participate in a variety of different sports
  • Ensure quality equipment throughout the school suitable for all Key stages.
  • Maintain participation in competitive sports outside of school.
  • All children to take part in a Sports Week in the Summer Term- try new and interesting sports.
