Sports and PE at Primrose Hill
At Primrose Hill, PE is covered by a specialist teacher and the class teacher. The curriculum offer delivers 2hrs of PE to every year group. Alongside the specialist teacher, School uses specialist coaches, funded by the Sports Premium Grant to deliver a variety of sports, including trampolining, gymnastics, and Cricket.
PE at Primrose Hill is based around learning new skills, improving those skills then utilising those skills in competition. EYFS and KS1 learn all the basic skills of running, throwing, and catching and other basics that improve their physical literacy. In LKS2, these skills are built on and improved giving children the chance to use these skills in competitions. They are introduced to sports and their rules. In UKS2, children have the skills in place and the curriculum gives them as many opportunities to be competitive as possible, with intra and inter school competitions.
This year at Primrose Hill we have experienced a wide array of sports. From Dodgeball to Swimming, Rounders to Tennis, we try to give every child the, 'opportunity to find a sport they love’. Other sports this year include:
- American Football
- And many more!

Competition Opportunities at Primrose Hill
We strive to enter as many competitions and tournaments as we can to give as many children as possible the taste of competitive sport. We belong to the Salford Schools Sport Partnership and we take part in as many of their Salford wide competitions as possible. As part of this network, we are the Quays Cluster co-ordinating school which means we organise and host competitions for our nearest neighbouring schools that lead into Salford competitions and ultimately the Greater Manchester School Games. Look out for what we are up to on ClassDojo and the School’s PE twitter account, @_PrimrosehillPE (also on the right).
At Primrose Hill all our Year 4 children receive swimming lessons as part of the PE curriculum. By the end of Year 6, all children must be able to swim 25m unaided. Below you will find our results.
There are no accurate figures for the Y6 pupils in 19/20 due to Covid, as the pupils were unable to attend swimming sessions as planned.
Our last available figures are 57% (24/42) could swim 25m unaided and 43% (18/42) could perform safe self rescue of the Year 6 from 2019.
Catching up on the swimming missed is important and we will be investing £2000 of Sports Premium on top up swimming in 2020/21
