Kilnhurst Primary School

P.E. and Sport Funding

Kilnhurst Primary Schools vision for the delivery of high quality physical education and school sport.


Vision Statement

To support excellence in PE through promoting healthy active lifestyles, engaging in competitive activities and developing determination to excel in a broad range of PE.



At Kilnhurst Primary School we pride ourselves on promoting a range of activities through the taught curriculum, extracurricular activities and visits which promote an active lifestyle. We support the government initiative to combat obesity and enjoy being active.


Our school vision is to create a curriculum that develops, motivates and enthuses every individual child to become a lifelong learner. We aim to give opportunities for all pupils to develop their leadership coaching and officiating skills. As a school we want to create a buzz about physical activities where every child feels confident and ready to participate.


This strategy will aim to:

  • improve health and well being

  • provide high quality opportunities and outcomes

  • assist each individual to be the best they can be

  • encourage community involvement and responsibility

  • promote lifelong learning, active participation and competition

  • raise achievement and support excellence.

  • create a lasting legacy of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympics Games


PE and sport have an important role to play in raising standards and narrowing the achievement gap. Research has shown how placing PE and sport at the heart of a broad and balanced curriculum can improve attendance, behaviour and attainment. PE and sport build self-esteem, teamwork and leadership skills. PE and sport are also important because they can help build an inclusive society, raise levels of participation in sport after young people leave school and positively affect the health of the nation.

The government is providing additional funding  to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. 

64% of our current Y6 cohort are able to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres, use a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
