Sports Premium

We love our PE and Sport!

Here at Ilsington C of E Primary every child is given the opportunity to participate and compete in a range of sporting activities. Whether experiencing activities for the first time in school or playing at clubs outside of school, our staff provide all children with fun, engaging challenges assured to develop them at every level.

We are extremely proud of Mrs Young (our PE leader)fPhilippa.jpgor winning an award for Services to Sport (Education) this is a true reflection of all the hard work she puts in behind the scenes on organising all of these events for the children. 

We ensure that PE doesn’t stop during the school day so many sports experienced in PE lessons are offered during after school clubs. Tennis, rounders, dance, football, athletics and netball were some of the popular clubs offered throughout this year.

Although winning is wonderful, our priority is to get every child enjoying sport. Therefore, we enter A and B teams into local competitions in tournaments appropriate for them, Such as competitions we entered this year were rounders, cross-country, Go Ride Cycling, tennis, dance and of course the annual swimming gala.

PE and Sport at Ilsington C of E Primary School.

  • At Ilsington, PE and sport are seen as playing a vitally important role in pupils’ development as rounded and physically active young people. In recent years, a substantial amount of money has been allocated towards teaching expertise and resources. PE is taught to all children, from Foundation Stage to Year 6, enabling them to develop good basic skills at a young age, which they then build upon as they move through the school, through a carefully structured and challenging programme. We aim to provide children with positive experiences which will develop an enthusiasm in the children which will see them inspired and involved in sport for many years to come.

    We offer a wide variety of individual and team activities: athletics, cricket, cross country, dance, football, gymnastics, High-Five netball, Dartmoor Three ball, handball, tag rugby, swimming, tennis & cycling.  We also appreciate the effect of physical activity on enabling children to focus and engage in their learning and as a result children spend 5-10 minutes on Daily Physical Activity (DPA), in fitness activities such as circuits, skipping, jogging, team games & other vigorous activities.

    In addition, during the residential trips, the children in Y5/6 are given the opportunity to enjoy different sporting activities. These include: abseiling, archery, high ropes courses, canoeing, zip wire, bikes and many other team building challenges. This has always proved highly successful with children both developing new skills and showing a significant increase in confidence and self-esteem.

    The opportunities for children to take part in a wide variety of after school sporting clubs had increased dramatically since 2012 and many children take advantage of this. This year (2016) clubs continue to grow in popularity.  The provision for sports outside of school has two main objectives. One is to provide as many opportunities as possible for children to enjoy the thrill and excitement of sport and activity in the hope it sets them up for a lifelong active lifestyle. The other is meeting the challenge of providing the children who have been identified as ‘gifted and talented’ with opportunities to extend themselves in competition against similar children from other schools. As a result, each year we enter teams into as many competitions as possible.

    Ilsington has also developed links with local sports associations for the benefit of the children and this has resulted in coaches coming into school to run sessions in a variety of sports. This has provided pathways for children to join clubs outside school to further their enjoyment and participation.
