P.E and Sport 2018 - 2019

Mr Sanders

 

 

At Plantation Primary, we aim to make P.E and sport an integral part of our children's lives, as we believe in the positive impact it can have on our children's health, their social skills and their self-esteem. Therefore, we strive to provide as many opportunities for our children as possible by liaising with a number of key stakeholders.

Educate Awards 2017 & 2018

Our commitment to providing invaluable sporting experiences for our children has been recognised at the 2017 & 2018 Educate awards, as we have won the 'Outstanding Commitment to Sport in Primary School' category for two consecutive years. Below is what the Educate Awards had to say about our applications in 2017 and 2018:

School Games Mark

We are delighted to announce that Plantation was awarded the Gold school games mark again this year, meaning we have now achieved the gold award for the second year in a row!  This award recognises the incredible amount of extra-curricular and competitive sporting opportunities on offer for all of our children, acknowledging that these have increased beyond what has been on offer in any years previously!

 

Merseyside Sports Partnership's Case Study on Plantation

We were ecstatic when Merseyside Sports Partnership (MSP) contacted us in April 2017 to conduct a case study on our outstanding use of Sports Premium funding. After liaising with us for a couple of months, MSP created a case study document and three short videos showcasing our school's use of funding. Read the document by clicking the image below and view the videos at the bottom of the page by clicking play!

Plantation have a fantastic partnership with KMcSports. KMcSports are an outstanding professional coaching company who offer a wide range of sporting activities at Plantation. These provide our children with high quality extra-curricular activities that enhance the learning of a variety of skills and techniques whilst also focusing on enjoyment and participation. 

We are also delighted to welcome back Everton in the Community to our school this year. Their community links will ensure that our children get an extensive array of cross-curricular opportunities throughout the year.

 

Play Leaders

Each term, we select children to become play leaders. They have an important role of planning and officiating organised play activities for other children during break and lunch time periods. These opportunities provide our play leaders with valuable experiences that develop their leadership skills. In turn, our play and lunch time breaks are full of exciting activities for all of our children to take part in!

Our current play leaders are:
