Sports Premium Information
Marlbrook Primary School - Vision
Our ethos at Marlbrook combines physical learning, health and cognitive thinking across all key stages. We believe that PE and sport play a key role in personal development and that every child should be provided with opportunities to participate in a wide range of sporting and physical instruction.
Using our grant we support a range of activities, endeavouring to develop physical confidence and support learning that will enhance children's skills and encourage health and fitness.
We aim to improve concentration, memory, behaviour and academic performance through sport. We want to motivate all children, encourage their personal and team performance and participation, promote confidence and develop positive self-esteem.
At Marlbrook Primary School, pupils have the chance to compete in sports and other activities; this whole school enhancement encourages fairness, values, responsibility, and respect. Positive social skills and character building is essential for our pupils to develop.
At Marlbrook the ability of our pupils to communicate and to collaborate in various sporting environments can expand their understanding of their own ability. This expansion of knowledge and experience will aid each child to measure and identify their progression in different sporting and physical activities.
The National Curriculum for PE 2014 states:
The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:
- develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
- are physically active for sustained periods of time
- engage in competitive sports and activities
- lead healthy, active lives.
Sports Premium Funding 2020-2021
This year Marlbrook has a grant of £17,550
We are spending the Sport Premium Funding in the following ways
- To increase the confidence, knowledge and skills of staff in teaching PE through the use of sports coaches and dance teachers.
- To increase the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity through providing equipment and games to play throughout a school day.
- To promote and develop the use of pupil 'sports leaders'
- To replenish resources and to purchase new resources so that children have a broader experience of a range of sports and activities.
A full 2021-22 action plan is available here.
Marlbrook Primary Sports Leaders
These children are responsible as 'the voice' of the children. There are two sports leaders from each class. They have been working hard to help and support the teacher in PE lessons. This year we will look to develop the role of the sports leaders in other parts of the school day.
The after school clubs at Marlbrook Primary School, offer a wide range of sporting and non-sporting activities. The activities provide children with opportunities to participate in physical activities and creative arts and crafts learning. Some of our clubs were enhanced with professional coaches to support and guide the children.
The Afterschool Clubs Coordinator, sends out termly letters to allow children to choose clubs they are interested in attending.
Sport Clubs at Marlbrook Primary School 2018-2019

Due to the latest government guidelines and the daily running of the school changing, swimming lessons were unable to be completed this year. Due to the flood damage caused at the beginning of the year, our local swimming pool is unfortunately closed and they will not be reopening until 2021. Swimming lessons will begin again as soon as possible.
