‘Think not to lose, care not to win’

Our vision for PE at Perranporth Community Primary School is that there is:

  • High quality teaching and learning across the school in all sports and physical activities
  • Children that have a good understanding of health and fitness and strive to improve this
  • Larger numbers of children take part in extra-curricular sports clubs and in representing the school at festivals, matches and performances
  • Children that have experiences of a wider range of physical activities
  • Children who are willing to try new things to get them active

PE and Sport is an essential part of everyday life at Perranporth Community Primary School. We build upon the statutory two hours PE time, by providing opportunities inside and outside school to extend the time children are physically active. We are proud to be a Healthy School.

We are fortunate enough to have extensive playgrounds, a hall and a large flat field to keep all children physically active. Additionally we have our own Forest Schools Area where we teach our SMSC curriculum through outdoor education. Classes visit this on a half termly basis. There is a wide variety of equipment for different sports, that can be used during lessons, playtime/lunchtime and at after school.

If you were to look at a picture of PE and Sport at Perranporth Community Primary School you will see:

  • In curriculum time-a wide variety of sporting activities to enrich children’s PE experiences. This may include traditional or alternative sports such as dodgeball and scatterball
  • No barriers. All children are catered for to meet their individual needs
  • Extra physical activity during the week in addition to the statutory two hours
  • A variety of extra-curricular sports clubs
  • Large numbers of children taking part in different extra-curricular sports clubs
  • Large numbers of children representing the school at festivals, matches and performances
  • Confident children who can talk passionately about their physical/sporting performances, healthy lifestyle fitness and PE learning.
  • Children who understand how they should think differently as a dancer, athlete, gymnast, games player and problem solver.
  • Children who are always looking to beat their personal best as well as trying to achieve their best collectively within team games

Real PE

Our Curriculum


At Perranporth we combine the Arena units with a challenging and motivating skills building programme from Real PE. This enables us to boost skills and promote excellence and fitness whilst focusing on the development of agility, balance and coordination, healthy competition and cooperative learning. Real PE links closely with our PSHE and each lesson will have a social skills focus as well.

Sports Premium Funding Partnership


Perranporth is one of 12 schools from the Newquay Learning Partnership.  Meeting every half term we endeavour to share best practice and facilitate opportunities for KS1 and KS2 children to participate in competition and skills development.  We also work closely with the Richard Lander Cluster increasing collaboration in the Truro area. Recently, Perranporth School has seen increasing success in competition, reflecting our improvement in all areas, and we are continuing to make this a school where pupils can engage in a wide variety of extracurricular sporting activities in every cohort.  We intend to use the sport premium to accelerate this upward trend.

PE and School Sport Action Plan 2017–2018

Perranporth School 

Background – The primary school sport premium investment goes direct to primary school Head Teachers and is designed to support improvements in the quality and depth of PE and school sport. In 2017/18 the amount schools receive each year has doubled.

Key Indicators – The Department for Education vision is that all pupils leaving primary school are physically literate and have the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport. The objective is to achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport that delivers high quality provision of a balanced and holistic PE and school sport offer. There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:

  1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  2. The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  5. Increased participation in competitive sport

Funding – Individual schools will receive circa £16,000-20,000 per annum (depending on the number of pupils) which they can use to support these outcomes through various options including; release of staff for CPD, employing specialists to work alongside teachers, cluster work with other schools and partnerships, transport, equipment, hall and pool hire etc.

Continue the excellent links we have with the local Perranporth Tennis Club and coach Steve Luck, Golf Pro Derek Mitchell, REAL PE Expert Fiona Holmes, Pro Surfer Ben Skinner and Dance Instructor Kate Attwell.





Schoolscapes Ltd providing new sporting equipment. Set of basketball hoops for the top playground. To enable children to access a range of sports at break and lunch times and after school.
























As well as dodgeball being a popular new club, gymnastics was well attended in KS1- promote gymnastics KS2 and Yoga (whole school) Sport Parliament and parents indicated a martial arts club would be beneficial. Eva Miranokova (Cornwall Judo Coach) running a Judo Club with Mr McGowan assisting- encouraging another club to our wide range of extracurricular sporting clubs therefore targeting more children to attend an after school club.



Increased attendance at the surfing in the local community clubs: Perran Surf, Perranporth Tennis Club and Perranporth Golf Club.


Attend local community events. In National Sports Week invite all local experts in to showcase their sport and use assemblies to promote attendance of local clubs. Offer some clubs at our school as a starting point.


Increased use of equipment during these times. Club to be introduced in Autumn Term.



We will continue to use the success of well attended new clubs in future, ensuring they are offered again. Audit children and PE and School Sport parliament on new club ideas.


Continue end of term children and staff sport fixtures to promote new and existing sports (in new staff kits)


Equipment bought can be used in PE and future extra-curricular clubs




Develop relationships with local clubs to future years and expand to more where possible.











This is a long lasting piece of equipment and will therefore give many years of use.

Key Indicator 2 :  The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
Intended Actions with impact on children Funding allocated Evidence and impact Sustainability and next steps
Playground games monitors. Year 5 and 6 children to lead sports activities at lunchtimes for KS1 children.










Update Staff kit- continue to promote role models and importance of PE/Sport clothing.









New kit for the children. Currently the school has one new sports kit for the children and one older one. We will therefore be updating and replacing the older kit. This will also be a less specific kit, the kit we currently have it a football kit. Therefore we will be adding a new kit which can be used in multiple sports.





























PE and Sport Profile celebrated and children have improved inter-personal skills. Quieter children more confident as a result. Award credited to boost the confidence of children and their understanding of being active and healthy.






Staff instantly recognisable at sport events – gives the school an identity and promotes staff as PE and Sport Role models- the importance of a team emphasised. Offer staff an alternative to current kit, with two PE lessons and one club a week one top is not currently enough.


Children to be excited about competing in sport events and representing the school in new kits.

More PE and Sport Ambassadors to be promoted in other clubs and continue to celebrate and raise the profile of PE and School Sport at PCPS. Potential award to increase confidence of social interaction and understanding of the benefit of physical literacy on one’s health and promotion of lifelong participation.


All staff to wear kit in PE lessons and extra-curricular activities and team events vs children to represent teamwork and the importance of wearing the correct equipment. Proud to be Perrranporth and healthy.







One way to make this more sustainable will be to find a local business to sponsor it. The children on the Sport’s Parliament will be writing letters to local businesses, this will lower the cost.

Key Indicator 3 :  Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
Intended Actions with impact on children Funding allocated Evidence and impact Sustainability and next steps
Respond to staff audit of personal confidence level in different areas across the PE curriculum- ensure staff attend training opportunities where possible.


NSN to provide opportunities to upskill staff





Arena Scheme of Work. To work alongside the Real PE we are going to introduce the Arena Scheme of Work. This is a scheme designed by a former Primary School teacher working alongside a former HMI leader. It gives a set of six lesson plans with clear progression and assessment across all models of work. The aim is to use this to improve assessment and progression in PE.



Release teaching staff to attend sporting events.









New equipment for delivery of PE and school sport.



GoActive to work alongside to provide CPD. As well as delivering after school clubs GoActive are going to be working alongside teachers to deliver PE lessons, each teacher will receive a half term of ‘co-teaching’ with a specialist coach.




PPS Subject Leaders Course. Sam Barnes to attend. SB to be trained to in how to lead PE, covering the key areas. This will lead to leadership that is more effective and therefore better outcomes for the children.


SB to attend Sugar Smart Conference





TPAT Sporting scheme. Access to a Trust Sports Premium Lead and Hub co-ordinators to help the school plan, audit, deliver, monitor and evaluate PE.

































£10 per session.

























The effectiveness of this will be monitored through lesson observation.



















Training will provide staff with a greater skill level going forward and enable to deliver a higher quality of teaching and assessment. IT will also give the children experiences of new and exciting sports.




Training will lead to more effective leadership of the subject. SB will make less mistakes and be able to better spend and deploy.

Give SB new ideas in how to make children more active, will be seen in introduction of new ideas.



This will be seen through the introduction of new ideas and better management of the subject.

Staff training opportunities to be included in Newquay School Sports Partnership as part of the extra funding to be a member.







This is a scheme that will be on going and hopefully the school will for a long period of time. As it is a one off cost it is sustainable for the future.








Continue to offer a range of clubs with new equipment e.g. dodgeball, yoga and dance







This is a short term project and will be sustainable as the teachers will be learning new skills to improve the quality of PE across the school.






This is a one of cost and will allow SB to better understand the leadership role.



This is a one off cost to introduce new ideas into the school, it will allow for better and more accurate spending.



Although this is an on-going cost the support gained will mean that each year the leadership of the subject improves.


Key Indicator 4 : Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
Intended Actions with impact on children Funding allocated Evidence and impact Sustainability and next steps

Clubs to be overtaken by GoActive, specialist outside company. School clubs have been led by members of staff for a number of years, this does limit the activities we are able to offer and the quality of the clubs. This will also allow us to offer a greater range of non-traditional clubs.




Offer a greater range of sports clubs to reach those who do not usually attend after school sport clubs. Speaking to staff and School Sport Parliament, golf was popular.



Pupil Voice- PE and School Sport Parliament set up and will meet regularly to discuss vision of PE and Sport PCPS. Buy badges. PE Parliament individuals will each be given a class budget to buy equipment for play and lunch times.






Judo after school classes with Eva Minarikova (specialist instructor)

























£150 per term

The uptake numbers for clubs will increase, the number of children who are attending clubs will monitored. The real measurement for effectiveness will be taken from the following terms attendance data, as this will show the number of children who have chosen to sign up again.






All staff upskilled and more confident in delivery of PE curriculum.


Greater involvement and understanding of the importance of health and well-being and the positive effect physical activity has. More children attending new and existing clubs.



Pupils will learn a new range of confidence building skills with a fully qualified and skilled professional.

This will also go towards decreasing teacher’s workload. In order to make this sustainable children will pay for club attendance, this will go some way towards covering the cost. Another way in which this will be sustainable is that all clubs will be attended by a member of school staff. The idea being that this will give staff new ideas and improve their knowledge and ability in leading extra-curricular activities.




Staff are more confident to lead lessons, clubs and events.



Maintain successful and well attended clubs. Regular meetings for PE and School Sport parliament. Members to change each year. Involve them in running events, promoting clubs in assemblies etc.

Key Indicator 5 : Increased participation in competitive sport
Intended Actions with impact on children Funding allocated Evidence and impact Sustainability and next steps

PE and School Sport Action Plan Perranporth 2018

Swimming at Perranporth

Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety Please complete all of the below:
What percentage of your Year 6 pupils can swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres? 86%

Allocation (all figures are approximate)

As a school we are making full use of the Sport Premium money that the government has provided us, to better the physical learning experiences of all children. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people.

We have embedded REAL PE as a main drive behind our PE Curriculum at Perranporth Community Primary School. Most of our staff were trained by the high quality services of a specialist PE consultant and teacher (Fiona Holmes) to work with children and staff in adopting a new curriculum approach to PE. With the employment of new staff and in particular, a new PE Co-ordinator we have received additional training to teach REAL PE (£700). Real PE focuses on the development of agility, balance and coordination, healthy competition and cooperative learning. It has a holistic approach which recognises the key abilities children need to be successful both within PE and sport and across the curriculum. We feel that it is critical to get children’s early experience of PE and sport right, to give them a love of learning which will lead to a good understanding of health and fitness throughout their lives. The children love it and are really impressing us with the way they are challenging themselves to use new skills! The work we are doing with Fiona Holmes will also enable us to provide additional training for staff and more insightful assessment of pupil’s attainment and progression into the future.




 A further portion of the funding makes a contribution to the Newquay Learning Partnership (£2000) which has enabled us to continue our participation in inter-school competitions and other sporting opportunities. Funding has enabled us to release staff to attend additional tournaments, leagues, festivals, development events and conferences (£500).  In addition, we are providing improved and additional equipment and resources (£1000).   The remaining funding (£2000) will enable children to participate in extracurricular sporting activities and experiences. We believe this is, and will continue to, contribute to improved standards and sustainable provision across the school.



We view PE as a core subject; ensuring pupils engage in a minimum of 2 hours of physical activity per week.  Our curriculum provision is predominantly through the Real PE scheme, supplemented with swimming lessons.  This facilitates clear progression and consistency through lessons and teaching that improves children’s attitude and abilities in exercise, teamwork, sportsmanship, motivation and leadership skills.  As a healthy school we promote participation by holding many in school events including: walking and biking to school, wake and shake, sports days cross country, and this year in particular, Sport Relief.  We have also recently participated in the Cornwall School Games, where we hope to increase the level of our representation this year.

We are continually striving to enable pupils to succeed at every level, while enjoying and benefiting from Physical Education.  We trust that going forward our ideas and strategies will have a lasting impact on quality and accessibility the allocation of this fund intends.PIC 5

We are continually striving to enable pupils to succeed at every level, while enjoying and benefiting from Physical Education.  We trust that going forward our ideas and strategies will have a lasting impact on quality and accessibility the allocation of this fund intends.


We realise that enabling our pupils to realise and maximise their potential will require an ongoing programme of improvement and intend to achieve this by:

  • development of more in school competitions
  • Change4Life opportunities
  • increased opportunity for gifted and talented pupils, including sports leadership provision.
  • Inclusion of every pupil- all children that attend clubs to represent the school in competition
  • Promote children’s voice- PE and Sport Council to communicate what the children want- clubs, equipment etc.
  • Further development of community links
  • improving Quality of Teaching
