Fylingdales School- Sports Premium Funding


Our Sports vision at Fylingdales School is that children are offered opportunities to participate in a variety of Sports. They learn to succeed and become motivated for continuing to be physically active for life. Sport and PE at Fylingdales School strives to create opportunities for children to develop: resilience, confidence and communication.

Physical Education

Here is what your physical development journey will look like at Fylingdales School.


The EYFS curriculum is centred around children achieving their Early Learning Goals. Through outdoor provision children work on the skills of balancing, moving and handling. Our school has invested heavily in this provision this year and values the importance of this early stage of physical development. The provision in our EYFS also focuses heavily on the development of children’s fine motor control in order to develop their pincer grip, which is so important for writing.

In Key Stage One, children are offered a broad range of activities that focus on developing their physical literacy. Physical literacy includes the development of: balancing, moving confidently, kicking, throwing and catching. All the year one children attended ‘Quad Kids’ and ‘Multi-Skills Events’ which were provided by the Schools Sports Partnership. These events were based on developing children’s Physical Literacy Skills, which can later be adapted to all sports.

Key Stage Two children begin to apply their general movement skills to sport-specific skills. At Fylingdales our Key Stage Two children attend all the Sporting Events provided by the School Sports Partnership. Our Upper Key Stage Two class is out most weeks and all children have the opportunity to attend these events. The school sports partnership provides a variety of sporting events including: tennis, golf, gymnastics, netball, hockey and tag rugby. Our year 5/6 children, take the role of ‘play leaders’ this gives them the opportunity to plan, organise and lead younger children.

School Swimming

Sports Premium Funding is used to assist with the funding of swimming. We have a flourishing swimming program with children from year 2-6 being offered a term of swimming sessions. Last year all the year six cohort left being able to swim at least 25 metres.


Fylingdales School is committed to the development of all our staff through CPD. This approach values the teaching team and helps to ensure sustainable improvement in our physical education curriculum. This year we have had coaches working alongside staff to develop the teaching of cricket, tennis and multi skills. Working alongside teachers the tennis coach supported our Sports Day. This was an opportunity to celebrate the CPD work with parents.

Club Links

Our school works closely with the local community. Through this work we actively encourage our children to participate in extra-curricular activities. These extra activities can also be used to gain accreditations through Family University. Our children are encouraged to attend local clubs including: tiquando, swimming, ballet, jazz, gymnastics, pony club, ballroom dancing, tap dancing, football, trials bike riding, rugby, cricket, ballet, cycling, karate and tennis. Some of these clubs were invited into school as part of our Sports fundraising day.

  • 75% of our year two cohort attend at least one club each week.
  • 50% of the year two cohort attend one or more club each week.
  • 92% of the year three and four cohort attend at least one club each week.
  • 80.8% of the year three and four class attend two or more activities.
  • 78.9% of the year five and six class attend an after school club.
  • 52.9% of the year five and six class attend more than one after school club.

This is positive data, which shows the impact we are having on educating our children to lead a healthy lifestyle.
