PE and Sports Premium

Girl's football tournament at City Academy

On the 27th April, 6 of our year 6 children traveled to Bristol Grammar School Playing fields to take part in the School Games West of England Quick Sticks Hockey tournament. The standard of competition was really high and our children represented us proudly! Here are a few photos of the day!

What is Sports Premium?

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding'. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

Examples of how funding should be used:

  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
  • provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
  • support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Lifeclubs
  • run sport competitions
  • increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • run sports activities with other schools

The Primary PE and Sport Premium funding has been provided to achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools. The focus of spending must lead to long lasting impact against the vision (below) that will live on well beyond the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding.

The Department for Education states its vision for Primary PE and Sports Premium is for: 

 ALL pupils to leave primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

9th June 2015 Year 6 Quad kids Athletics- Whitehall

On the 22nd April a team from Chester Park Junior School took part in the area final of the Bristol Sport Tag Rugby Competition. CPJS had done extremely well to reach this tournament as only 12 schools from across Bristol managed to qualify.

As well as playing their games on the Ashton Gate pitch, the children had the opportunity to meet several players from the Bristol Rugby Squad.

Unfortunately, we did not qualify for the quarter finals but all of the children had a fantastic evening. A big thank you to all of the parents and supporters who turned up to cheer us on.

PE and school sport


At Chester Park Junior School, PE and school sport is an integral part of school life. All classes have two PE lessons per week which are timetabled in the afternoons.

What the children are learning will vary depending on the age of the children and the time of year.

Provision will also sometimes be amended when the school takes the opportunity to invite a specific sport coach into school to provide a series of sessions (e.g. a cricket coach in the summer). 




At Chester Park Junior School, the current provision is as follows:



Terms 1 and 2

Terms 3 and 4

Terms 5 and 6

Year 3


Invasion games





Year 4

Year 5

Year 6











Intra-school sport.

This year we are introducing a lot of intra-school competition. This means that all children will have the opportunity to compete against each other in various activities within school time. For example, in Year 6, we are having a gymnastics competition.


Inter-school competition.

Last year Chester Park Junior School took part in a tag-rugby tournament at Whitehall RFC as well as a kwik-cricket competition at Bristol West Indies CC.

This year, with the introduction of Sport Premium funding, we are aiming to participate in more regular competitions in a variety of sports, against other schools.


After school clubs.

At Chester Park Junior School, we are lucky to have members of staff, and parent volunteers who run a variety of after school clubs. Through the course of the year we offer the following after school sports clubs:


  • Year 3/4 football
  • Tear 5/6 football
  • Year 3/4 cricket
  • Year 5/6 cricket
  • Year 3/4 tag rugby
  • Tear 5/6 tag rugby
  • Table tennis
  • Netball



            In Year 6, Chester Park Junior School, in conjunction with Bristol City Council, carry out Top Up swimming sessions. This is a week long programme aimed at enabling all year 6 children to be able to swim 25 metres, which is the national expectation.

            The children receive intensive coaching over the course of the week and it has proved to be a very successful initiative.
