Glebelands Primary School

Stimulating Young Minds


Sports Grant

2017 Sports Grant

The government have given us £9,000 to spend on promoting sport and physical activity in school. Below is an outline of the work we have done already and what we still plan to do and the impact it has had.




Update January 2017

Work in partnership with Babington College – outstanding specialist sports school – includes:

  • One visiting teacher for an afternoon each week, working alongside Glebelands teachers, developing a programme of study in specific PE areas




  • Support at lunchtime for Yr 5/6 football







  • Development of programmes of work






  • Access to Babington sports facilities – more able sessions, inter-school competitions, Friday afternoon sessions








  • Support for sports’ afternoons







  • Access to training and Youth Sports Trust


Cost: £5,000 for Babington affiliation

           £460 for cover

Activity: Two teachers visiting alternate weeks have worked with 4 teachers in the autumn term and are now working with 4 new teachers this term. Work has been done on gymnastics, tag rugby, basketball and dance.


Impact: Teachers report being far more confident and able to deliver specific areas of the PE curriculum. More able children extended.


Activity: This was modified during the autumn term to focus on supporting some year 4 children with their games skills.


Impact: Year 5/6 footballers able to play without incident. Specific Year 4s starting to develop ideas of fair play.


Activity: This was completed in the summer term for gymnastics.


Impact: The gymnastics PE curriculum is now well structured and meets the needs of all abilities.


Activity: We took children in the summer term for a sports afternoon and a trampolining session. This term, the dates have clashed with other sporting activities at school.


Impact: More able children were able to work alongside similar children from other schools. Children were able to experience trampolining.


Activity: Babington staff supported our Key Stage 1 sports day and will do so again this summer.


Impact: The afternoon ran far more smoothly.


This has not been taken up. CPD offered so far has not meet the needs of teachers.

Participation in inter-school competitions:

  • Indoor athletics
  • Basketball
  • Hockey
  • Tag rugby
  • Cricket
  • Tri-golf
  • New Age Kurling
  • Outdoor athletics








Entry into the Cross Country League








Cost: £640 for transport


Activities: The list in the previous column shows the events that we have signed up to do. So far this academic year we have competed in the indoor athletics where we were 2nd, and the basketball.


Impact: The competitions raise the profile of the sport, and have provided children with the opportunity to compete against other children. In the basketball, not a sport that we have done beyond PE lessons, there were some schools who play in leagues, so it was a lesson to observe their skills and tactics. Our children learnt from this observation, improving their positional play considerably as the competition progressed.


Activity: Children took part in a cross country club at school and then competed in the Leicestershire cross country events that were held on three occasions at Prestwold Hall.


Impact: Children’s cross country skills were developed and those who competed experienced being part of a race with hundreds of competitors.

Additional after school sporting clubs from Angela and Get Doing








Football Coaching from Leicester City FC.






Cost: 25 weeks at £30 per hour x 3 clubs


Activity: These clubs have run throughout the year with two being dance based and one multisports.


Impact: Children have developed skills and have been involved in physical activity. Interest in physical activity has been sparked.


Children in  Years 1 and 2 are being coached by Leicester City coaches in a six week  programme. The coaches are also working with Foundation children in school time to develop balance and movement.


Impact: Children will develop skills and body control.

Affiliation to Leicestershire Schools’ Football Association and participation in leagues, event days and special promotions








Cost: £350 for affiliation

          £100 for transport

Activity: Year 5/6 footballers have been competing with six other schools in a mini league during the autumn term. Glebelands finished top of the league, unbeaten. In the spring term they will be competing against the top sides from a parallel league with play off finals at the end of term.


Impact: Children have developed skills and teamwork.


In addition, we have entered into a Premier League competition this spring term.

In addition, we are providing a range of intra-school events over the year at no additional cost:

  • Outdoor athletics
  • Football
  • Hockey
  • Tag Rugby
  • Dodgeball

Clubs: 45% of children in years 1 to 6 took part in a club involving physical activity during the autumn term 2014.
