Curriculum Time PE


At Heron park we take great pride in our PE and after-school club program. Our partnership with Sportitude is currently in its 9th year and in that time the children’s enjoyment, application and achievements in Sport have gone from strength to strength. The Academy is a regular recipient of the School Games Awards- racking up three consecutive Golds in recent years. Our last two Ofsted reports have highlighted the high quality of our sporting provisions.


Further to this our efforts to provide outstanding PE lessons, coach-led teacher training, and to support the after-school club program has led to the Academy producing a conveyer-belt of successful teams. Our trophy cabinet bares testament to this!


The Academy achieves all the above by spending its PE premium on professional, experienced sports coaches, equipment, and covering the costs of entering multiple inter-school competitions- such as transport and kit.



All children receive 2 high quality PE lessons per week, with one of those being a coach-led session where the class teacher learns by observation and assesses the children. We will provide sports/dance after-school clubs that are available to all children Y1-6 where year group bubbles are adhered to.


You can find, at the bottom of this page, a basic breakdown of our PE spend over the past two years. Please note, we will be updating this page to show our plan for the rest of the academic year.


Physical Education (PE) Premium


2020 - 21


We intend to spend the £19,330 which we receive from the Government for PE provision at this school as follows:


£17,784 - PE coach to continue to offer the children comprehensive PE lessons throughout the year, along                      with leading professional development in this area for staff at school.

£2,146 - resources connected to the PE provision and travel expenses to tournaments and sporting fixtures                    throughout the year 


2019 - 20


This year we receive £19,330 funding from the Government to provide a rich and varied PE programme.

PE is delivered by a combination of expert coaching sessions delivered by Sportitude and also by class teachers.  This builds on the normal level of provision that you would find in many schools across the country by providing students with an expert in different sports who is able to promote mastery beyond mere physical and skills development.  This provision not only accelerates the pace of progress and development, but motivates students to challenge themselves in a number of sporting activities.  Sportitude also operates their own rewards and awards programme where they gain points, awards, medals, trophies and prizes including a special achievement visit to the David Lloyd Centre.


We spend over the average in support of the PE curriculum at Heron Park Primary Academy.
We will receive a total of £19,330 to spend in this area.

We will continue to employ a Coach who is taking the sporting element of the education we offer to pupils at Heron Park to a new level; in addition to the curriculum activities, he arranges participation in inter-school tournaments and other fixtures throughout the year. Soon, we are going to need a bigger trophy cabinet!
We have a good quality football pitch and funds will be used to reinvigorate our existing PE equipment stocks.

PE at Heron Park Primary Academy continues to go from strength to strength.

In this academic year we will be
· offering swimming lessons to all children in Key Stage 2
· offering scholarship places at after school clubs to children showing promise in sporting activities
· organising lunchtime activities
· running a “Big Buddy” club for selected children in Years 5 and 6

(Total anticipated spend £11,598)

Equipment, travel costs, kit etc. (anticipated spend £1,933)
