Key Indicators – The Department for Education vision is that all pupils leaving primary school are physically literate and have the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport. The objective is to achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport that delivers high quality provision of a balanced and holistic PE and school sport offer. There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:

    1. the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
    2. the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
    3. increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
    4. broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
    5. increased participation in competitive sport

Funding – Individual schools will receive circa £16000-18000 per annum (depending on the number of pupils) which they can use to support these outcomes through various options including; staff CPD, employing specialists to work alongside teachers, cluster work with other schools and partnerships, transport, equipment, hall and pool hire etc.

In July 2016 we conducted a survey to gauge pupils participation in sport.  Our findings, including the participation of pupils entitled to pupil premium funding, can be seen below.

We aim, over the next year, to increase the percentage of pupils participating in after school sports clubs and also hope to inspire even greater numbers of pupils to join sports clubs outside of school.

63% (149 out of 235) pupils on roll regularly attended after school sports clubs (74 boys and 75 girls) during the 2015-16 academic year.

30% of those pupils (45) who regularly attended school sports clubs were pupils entitled to pupil premium funding.

The number of children attending regularly each sports club:

Year 5/6 Football: 31 pupils
Year 3/4 Football: 33 pupils
Girls’ Football: 28 pupils
Hockey: 33 pupils
Fitness: 19 pupils
Netball: 44 pupils
Yoga: 21 pupils
Basketball: 14 pupils
Athletics: 26 pupils
Rounders: 51 pupils
Cricket: 23 pupils
Table Tennis: 19 pupils

Over the course of the 2015-16 academic year, 94 pupils at SIJS (40% of the whole school) represented the school competitively.  Of the 94 pupils, 23 (25%) were Ever6 children. We competed against other schools in:  Football (Y5/6, Y3/4 and Girls), Hockey, Swimming, Tag Rugby, Cross County, Netball, Athletics and Cricket (Boys and Girls).


  • Our Tag Rugby team and our Boys’ Cricket team qualified from the district tournaments to compete in the county tournaments.
  • Seven Cross Country runners qualified to run in the county finals.
  • Our Year 6 swimming team qualified to represent our area in the finals of the Cornwall School Games.
  • Our Girls’ Football team reached the final of the County Cup competition.
  • Finally, our whole-school Athletics team won the district event.
