PE & Sport Premium Funding 2016/17

In 2016-2017 Combe Down C of E Primary School received £9669.60 (April 2016-March 2017)

This was a transitional year as the school became an Academy on 1st July 2016. Funding now runs from September to August. Below is how the funding was allocated to improve the quality of sport and PE during that period.

The Bath Coaching Hub continues to flourish and is giving children opportunities to participate in sports and activities that they might not have done before in iconic locations such as the Bath Recreation Ground, home of Bath Rugby. Tag rugby, cricket, street dance, Ultimate Frisbee have all been experienced by 120 pupils this year. This scheme will extend in 2017-2018 to three days a week enabling even more children across Bath to participate. The key themes running through the programme are respect and teamwork. Again feedback has been excellent from pupils and staff.

The new scheme of work, REAL PE, that was introduced and funded in 15-16, is working well across the school with all planning and delivery being taken from the Scheme of Work.

Robin Lett continues to work with class teachers to not only deliver high quality PE but to provide continual CPD for staff.

The school has been a pioneer in promoting positive mental health, particularly through sport. We held a hugely successful World Mental Health Day where awareness was raised and learnt about through many different activities. Following on from this day, we have provided sessions in yoga, Pilates and boot camp classes to our children through Up and Under Coaching.

The school has also provided workshops for parents around mindfulness and supporting children emotionally.


New extra-curricular clubs have been introduced to provide more opportunities, especially to Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 children. These clubs include:

Mindfulness club, Summer Games, Fitness Club, Experienced Ukulele Club, Tag Rugby, Y2-3 Football, Mini Football (FS & Y1), Sewing, and Cricket. We have brought in Get Sported to provide some of these clubs to our FS and KS1 children and will continue to increase the opportunities we provide.

Netball coaching from the Royal High School for Year 5 has continued as have the SSCO mornings for Years 1-6 at Ralph Allen School. Extra-curricular clubs have run in hockey, football, judo, netball, dance, running and multi-skills as well as those mentioned above.

There have been a range of opportunities to compete in a competitive environment too; the Football league and cup, the Dance Umbrella, Bath Schools Swimming Fiesta, Y5/6 House Swimming Gala, Y2-6 Sports day, YR & Y1 Sports Day, Y3 & 4 swimming lessons at Monkton Combe, Bath Y4 football tournament and netball matches.
