At Wroot Travis Primary we believe that all pupils should have the opportunity to have at least two hours of high quality P.E. a week. We hope to instill the importance sport plays in life long fitness, health and well-being. We value sport and recognise the role it plays in developing friendships, fun and teamwork. As a school we want to create a buzz about physical activities where every child feels confident and ready to participate.
P.E in our school
With the completion of our new classrooms in October 2013, we are now enjoying the use of a designated indoor space for our P.E. lessons. If the weather is poor or when delivering the gymnastic curriculum element, we have a space which we can call 'the hall'.
Our first job was to remove the carpet that covered the floor and replace it with something more suited to P.E. This was completed over the Easter holidays and children are now benefiting from this for their weekly martial arts sessions.
Participation in PE in addition to the normal curriculum has increased:
25% attend at least one sports related after school club each week
15% attend 4 Gifted and Talented sessions each year
100% attend sports competitions with other schools from our cluster
100% attend skills sessions with other schools from our cluster.
Primary Sport Premium
From September 2013 every primary school received a Primary Sport Premium. At Wroot our 2014/15 premium was £8115. A summary of spending follows:
- 4.3% on a comprehensive scheme of work.
- 30% on external sports coaches.
- 31% on ensuring fit for purpose hall flooring.
- 12% on upgrading or replacing equipment.
- 22.7 % on staffing to support external sports events.
Our intention for the next round of funding will be to:
- Raise the profile of PE in school.
- Improve every child's experience of PE.
- Increase school sport and competition.
- Increase the physical activity of young people to develop a healthy lifestyle.

How will we use this money effectively?
- Our school has bought into the North Lincs School Sports Network which will promote links between schools within North Lincolnshire, both Primary and Secondary Schools. The network will provide support for our school in order to implement our action plan.
- Replace our hall flooring, in order to have a fit for purpose space for indoor physical education lessons.
Main areas of our action plan will include:
- Staff training, continued professional development courses for staff, coaching and mentoring tuition for staff and children.
- Development of the role of Young Sport Leaders (Ambassadors).
- To ensure that all children receive an outstanding PE curriculum we will be looking to improve and develop high quality teaching of dance and gymnastics across KS1 and KS2.
Participation and Attainment
As a result of this funding pupils have:
- Participated all year round due to indoor facility
- Accessed specialist skills from P.E. professionals
- Made progress and attained age related expectations due to focused planning
- Attainment more closely assessed to provide paired teacher assessment

The KS2 children represented our school in the Hull Small School Games, held at the Costello Stadium. With a field of over 700 young people, 'Team Wroot' racked up an impressive score sheet of over 380 points.
The nine strong golf team put in an impressive effort with the highest score of the competition in the 'Bean Bag Target' category.
James Chappell set the bar high early on with the record for the furthest distance shot, only to be beaten at the 11th hour!
The 'Quad Kids' displayed boundless energy over the day, competing in a demanding collection of events which included long jump and 50 metre sprint. Also our 4 x 50m relay team put up an impressive fight coming in second place.
- A highly motivated team tackled orienteering, skipping and boccia with some excellent scores.
All of the children will receive a certificate in our special assembly on Friday to celebrate their achievements.
WELL DONE TEAM WROOT!
Tuesday 24th June 2014
Can you skip to the beat? We can! All of the KS1 and KS2 children were rewarded with a brand new skipping rope each, for completing stage one of 'Skip To The Beat!.'
The playground was bouncing and the children were given a great workout as they skipped along to some VERY LOUD MUSIC!
We will update you on how many of the children beat their personal best score, when the Regional Sports Partner returns on July 15th.
