Sport at Holy Trinity Pewley Down

We are passionate about the power of sport and physical activity at Holy Trinity Pewley Down. Our dedicated staff are committed to providing a platform for every child to excel and enjoy sporting activities, whatever their prior experience. Every day we see the impact of our enthusiasm for sport in the children. We see changes in the way they see themselves, the pride they have in their school, their commitment to achieving their best and their love of learning. We also notice that Holy Trinity Pewley Down children are open to new experiences and happy to embrace challenge. Witnessing these changes every day gives us the belief in what we’re doing and the determination to continue to offer our children every opportunity we can. This is why we have a dedicated sports team who oversee both the curriculum and our extra-curricular sporting activities. As a result we are able to support all of our children, maximising their potential and offering opportunities to all.

Our curriculum PE sessions aim to create a love of physical activity and cater for children of all abilities. We teach a broad range of sports and skills with a number of specialist teachers able to support children in finding their passions. In addition to our curriculum work we have an extensive clubs list offering over 15 different sports clubs each week. Many of these clubs are run for free by our highly qualified group of teachers, either before school, during lunch or after school. Through our sports administrator we are also able to enter our children into many sporting fixtures with local schools. Holy Trinity Pewley Down children have the opportunity to represent the school in football, netball, tag rugby, XC running, biathalon, swimming, athletics, cricket, rounders, dodgeball and many more. Last year alone children at Holy Trinity Pewley Down competed in over 60 fixtures with other schools. Further to this we believe that the opportunity for competitive sport should be available to everyone, not just a talented few, which is why we run regular house tournaments between our four houses, Shackleton, Keller, Mandela and Nightingale. Our excellence in sport was recently noted by Active Surrey, who awarded us both the Gold standard at the juniors and the Star Mark at the infants for our sports’ provision.

We really believe in the power of sport and line the school’s values right the way though everything we do.

What is the PE and sport premium?

The Government has pledged to provide funding of £150 million per annum between 2014 and 2020 to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. Schools must spend this designated additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but will have the freedom to choose how they do this. Ofsted will play a significant role in ensuring that schools target this funding in areas which will lead to clear outcomes in raising standards and opportunities. The aim of the funding is to ensure that all children leave primary school “physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.” Ofsted.

The Sport Premium funding is allocated to each individual school by the payment of a lump sum. Schools with over 170 pupils are allocated £8,000 and then £5.00 per child in Year 1- Year 6.

In 2016-17, Pewley Down Infant School received £8600 and Holy Trinity Junior School received £9920

At Holy Trinity Pewley Down, we continue to strive for participation, support, encouragement and opportunities for all of our children. We aim to give them a lifelong interest and involvement in sport and physical activity.
