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

Our commitment to providing invaluable sporting experiences for our children was recognised this year at the Educate awards, as we won the 'Outstanding Commitment to Sport in Primary School' category. Below is what the Educate Awards had to say about our application:

 

Educate Awards 2018

We are ecstatic to announce that we have been shortlisted again for the 'Outstanding Commitment to Sport in Primary School' category at the Educate Awards.

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:

 

 

Competition for all at Plantation Primary

We aim to provide our children with a wide variety of competitive opportunities throughout the school year. These include intra-school competitions run by Mr Sanders and our sports leaders, and inter-school competitions run by the Knowsley School Sports Partnership and the Halewood cluster partnership.

 

Inter-School Competitions

Intra-school competitions

To ensure that all of our children have an opportunity to participate in competitive sport, we aim to run at least one intra-school competition each half term. The competitions are officiated by our play leaders and the winning teams receive a medal each and get to lift the coveted Plantation Sports Cup!
