PE/School Sport

In the academic year 2018-2019, following the additional PE and Sports funding provided by the government and allocated to Melling St Wilfrid CE Primary School, we saw a significant increase in the number of pupils participating in sport opportunities offered after school. Pupils in Y3 and 4 participated in the outdoor and adventurous activities residential at Hothersall Lodge funded by the premium. Parent/ child feedback on the impact of these opportunities highlighted the positive impact on pupils:

  • Physical wellbeing
  • Teamwork skills
  • Resilience
  • Confidence
  • Communication skills


These opportunities have had a significant impact on  pupils' engagement with physical activity opportunities in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 and on the leadership skills of pupils in Key Stage 2.

We have taken the nescessary steps to ensure that developements are susatinable by providing professional development opportunities for all teachers and we have used the funding to further develop the leadership of our subject leader.

Further to our self evaluation of PE and Sport provision during the academic year 2018-2019, priorities for improvement have been identified for 2019-2020. 

  • To give children a wide range of opportunities to try sports not available to them in the local area.
  • To identify children with potential in particular sports and provide them with contacts to develop their talents.
  • To give all children opportunities to engage in sport daily.
