P.E and Sport 2021 - 2022

Awards for website(1).jpg


Mission Statement

To promote and provide exciting, engaging sporting opportunities, so that our children leave our school with the knowledge of how to lead a healthy lifestyle and the desire to be life-long participants in physical activity.


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 2017-2020

Our commitment to providing invaluable sporting experiences for our children has been recognised at the Educate Awards for the past four year. The Educate Awards identifies oustanding practice in schools across the North West of England. 

At the 2017, 2018 & 2020 Educate awards, we won the 'Outstanding Commitment to Sport in Primary School' category and in 2019, we were finalists for the award. 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 we have maintained the Gold School Games Mark this year, meaning we have now been a Gold School Games Mark school for the previous four years!  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. 


Play Leaders

Each year, 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!


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.
