PE at Holbrook Primary
For the last two academic years (2016-2017/2017-2018) Holbrook has maintained a Silver School Games award for our PE provision and commitments to sports literacy. At Holbrook Primary we are committed to providing children with a wide and varied curriculum. Children at Holbrook are provided with at least 2 hours of timetabled PE sessions during curriculum time and additional extra-curricular sports run every single day of the week, before, lunchtimes and after school. Curriculum PE covers a wide range of disciplines where children learn new skills, hone their abilities and put them to play in game scenarios. Children are constantly challenge to push themselves to improve their knowledge from previous sessions and are given opportunities to showcase their skills at sporting events. Our curriculum covers dance, gymnastics, swimming, invasion games, team work skills, problem solving outdoor and adventurous skills and health education. Extra-curriculum sports includes tennis, multi-skills, fencing and archery, running, rugby, basketball, athletics and cricket to name a few.
At Holbrook Primary we aim to ensure children:
- Develop skills and technique in a range of physical activities
- Are physically active for sustained periods of time
- Have opportunities to take part in competitive sports
- Lead healthy and active lifestyles
At Key Stage 1, pupils will develop fundamental movement skills (physical literacy), become increasingly confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. At Key Stage 2, pupils will apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. They will develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own and others successes. In years 4, 5 and 6, pupils will be taught to swim competently, using a range of strokes and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
Holbrook’s most recent OFSTED stated, “Pupils love the extensive range of physical activities which are offered. From tennis, to cross country, to dinghy sailing at Alton Water. The reception area is overflowing with trophies that pupils have won, and of which they are rightly proud. Such experiences as a visiting Olympic athlete ensure pupils’ continued interest not just in sport but also in healthy eating, perseverance and the taste of success.”
P.E and Sports Premium Report
Schools receive PE and Sport Premium Funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6.
In cases where schools don’t follow year groups (for example, in some special schools), pupils aged 5 to 10 attract the funding.
In most cases, we determine how many pupils in your school attract the funding using data from the January 2017 school census.
Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £500 per pupil.
Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £8,000 and an additional payment of £5 per pupil.
How to use the PE and Sport Premium
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.
This means that you should use the premium to:
- develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
- make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years
For example, you can use your funding to:
- hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
- provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
- introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
- support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
- run sport competitions
- increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
- run sports activities with other schools

Pupil Premium Report
Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is money given to schools by the Government to support children who are eligible for Free School Meals, children who are in care and children of Service Families.
The Department for Education says that
“It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for individual pupils.”
How do we use this money?
At Holbrook Primary School, the pupil premium has funded a number of activities and interventions to support pupil progress and attainment. These have included:
The employment of additional adults in Nursery and Reception
- So children can be taught in smaller groups.
The increase in HLTA hours
- So pupils can receive One to One tuition from qualified teachers.
- HLTA cover of class to facilitate tutorial sessions for small groups led by teachers in the classroom
- Specialist social and emotional support for vulnerable pupils to receive individual sessions one afternoon per week
Allocation of a percentage of the grant to provide opportunities for enrichment in pupils learning through music, performance, educational visits and workshops. e
The aim is to inspire pupils to achieve more and close the gap in performance between disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged pupils.
