Sports and PE at Primrose Hill

At Primrose Hill, PE is covered by one member of staff. This teacher covers the PPA timetable in school and delivers 2hrs of PE to every year group. Alongside the specialist teacher, School uses specialist coaches, funded by the SPG to deliver a variety of sports, including trampolineing, Lacrosse, dance and rugby.

PE at Primrose Hill is based around learning new skills, improving those skills then utilising those skills in competition. 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:

  • Football
  • Rugby
  • Dance
  • Trampolining


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.

Academic year 2017-2018 - 57% (24/42)

Academic year 2016-2017 - 43% (18/42)

Hockey Cluster Tourament

On Monday, school hosted the first Quays Cluster sporting event of the new year. 13 teams from 5 schools came and played quicksticks hockey on our school field. Our 3 teams played valiantly but were ultimately unsuccessful in qualifying for the Salford finals. That honour went to Light Oaks primary.

Well Done to all the children in year 6 who took part. You represented school really well.

JP League round 1

We took our new school football team for our first taste of competitive action. We took part in the grading week of the JP league.

It was a very successful outing, with 3 wins from 3, against Cathedral, Holy Family and Monton Green. Mr Myring was very impressed with the attitude and application of his players. Only two of the 9 children we took had played JP league football before and the debutantes took to it like fish to water.

We have qualified for the premier league and are excited to start our campaign next week.
