PE and Sport Premium
At our school, we aim to allow all pupils to access a wide variety of activities and sport-based opportunities. We want to inspire a love for being physical active and encourage all our children to live a healthy lifestyle.
In our PE lessons, pupils are given the opportunity to take part and try new skills, applying them to a variety of carefully planned and progressive activities. Through these lessons, we aim to create resilient, creative and confident children who strive to be ambitious and achieve their personal best.
Our curriculum also gives pupils the chance to develop their social, emotional and thinking skills alongside their physical skills. We have a play leader system in place that provides an opportunity to lead and work effectively as part of a team to improve the learning of their peers. Through assemblies, we promote the effectiveness of living a healthy lifestyle and the positive effects it has on our bodies and minds.
As well as encouraging everyone to participate in sport, we also provide many extra-curricular opportunities for children to take part in sports, clubs and sporting events. We want to provide our children with the best opportunities we have available, taking advantage of the many links we have with local clubs, schools and sports teams. By working in partnership with these organisations, we give children the necessary skills and mindset to leave primary school with the capacity to be successful in sporting challenges and active lifestyles at secondary level and beyond.
Check out some of the amazing sporting things the children of Lawns Park have achieved recently below.
Year 6 Olympic Athletic Event News Report by Year 6 Super-Athletes:
Location: John Charles Centre, Date: June 2021
How it went:
- We won lots of different events such as the 80m sprint, the 400m, the relay and lots more.
- The team were excited, but very nervous. The atmosphere started to feel tense. However, like true Lawns Parkers we swallowed our fear and gave it 100% effort.
- Between them Max and George scored a whopping 16.8m in the javelin throw.
- The opposition were left in the dust as Miller won the 400m by 13 seconds!
- Overall, we had a combined total of 9 wins, 6 second places and 4 thirds.
The Girls’ team were just pipped at the winning post. They ran the 400m relay in 1 minute 8 seconds, which is amazing! The boys’ winning relay team were outstanding and got a remarkable time of 1 minute 5 seconds.
We had a fantastic day, and everyone was proud that they tried their best and did the best they could.
In our Friday assembly, we like to celebrate everything good that has happened in the previous week. This includes sporting achievements from inside and outside of school. Below is a collection of pictures showing what sporting accomplishments have been done by some of our children this week. You are all amazing - Well done!
Remember, if you have something you wish to share in Friday assembly, bring it to Mr Brown before Friday!

These are our brand new play leaders! In their recent PE lessons, they have been taught how to properly coach children new games and how best to approach situations at playtimes. Their job is to look out for people who need help with ideas of what to play and ensure everybody is having fun and enjoying their playtimes!
Look out for them in their blue bibs and don't be afraid to ask for some help!
If you spot one of these people doing something exceptional, please come and tell Mr Brown as he will be awarding somebody with the 'Play leader of the week' awards every Friday.
Autumn Term 2021
We will be (hopefully!) offering a range of fixtures and events when we return to school in September, so watch this space!
