Chorleywood Primary School

Marathon Kids

We are pleased to announce Chorleywood Primary is taking part in Marathon Kids. Marathon Kids is an exciting project from children's charity Kids Run Free. The project aims to give school children the opportunity to complete a marathon throughout the course of the school year by running laps of a course once or twice a week during their lunch break. The concept is based on personal achievement rather than competition - this encourages all children, regardless of fitness ability to take part by running as much or as little as they choose.

Sports Premium Statement

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum to provide new, substantial primary school sports 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 Head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

Chorleywood Primary School is using the Sports Premium Funding to improve the provision of Physical Education and sport for the benefit of pupils so they develop healthy lifestyles. This is an area of the curriculum we feel particularly passionate about.

The Governors agree that the money must be used so that: all children benefit regardless of sporting ability; that the most able children are given the opportunity to compete in advanced tournaments; and that staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development.

A partnership between schools is vital to develop PE. We are part of the Rickmansworth Sports Partnership. Meetings and correspondence to share good practice is key to developing the subject in our schools. Any initiatives or resources that are particularly good are relayed to schools within our family. We also meet during the half term before National School Sports Week to discuss ideas for the week. This is a great opportunity to share practice and how best to make the most out of the week.  The Sports Partnership also provide access to inter-school competitions for all year groups.

In the 2015-16 academic year the school received £8,903

This money was spent as follows;

Sports Partnership Membership Continued membership of the school Sports Partnership enables us to facilitate inter-school competitive sports and to access CPD for teachers. 

Whole School PE Scheme

To improve the delivery of the PE curriculum for all year groups and support differentiation for the most able.

CPD for staff

Staff survey indicates increased confidence in the teaching of certain sports.


We have purchased new resources to assist in delivering the whole school PE scheme.

Bursary places for PPG pupils to attend sports clubs in and out of school

To ensure that the PPG pupils are able to participate in sporting activities in and out of school.

Funding for children to access a wider range of sporting activities 

Year 5 and 6 had a series of sailing sessions at our local sailing club.  Years 1 and 2 had a specialist karate teacher deliver a series of sessions which will lead to increased participation in OSHL.

National School Sports Week In order to promote sport during National School Sports Week, we booked whole school carnival dance sessions and other sporting activities that would not normally be accessible to the children.

Impact on pupils’ Physical Education and Sports participation


•    The increase and success in competitive school sports 

This year, Chorleywood Primary has had success in a range of team sports including: winners of Year 5 quiksticks hockey tournament, winners of the Year 5 tri-golf tournament, runners up in boys’ football league title; runners up in girls’ football league title; 1st place in the tag rugby league, and we participated in the mixed netball league. We have also been very successful in other partnership festivals. 

•    Improvement in the delivery of the PE Curriculum 

Purchase of the Whole School Scheme of Work has enabled teachers to more confidently deliver the PE curriculum.  It has also seen an increase in the type of sport taught and enables better inclusion for the more and less able pupils.  The new equipment has increased the childrens enthusiasm in PE sessions. 

•    The growth in the range of traditional and alternative sporting activities 

This has also led to the growth of these traditional sports as more children can participate in them. As new equipment has been introduced to children at our school, they are able to engage in a wider range of sporting experiences. 

•    The improvement in partnership work on physical education with other schools and other local partners 

Our continued link with the School Sports Partnership has resulted in the children benefitting from activities such as play leader training for Year 5 and Year 6, intra-school competitions for Year 3 and 4 and a multi-skills festival for Year 1 and Year 2.  

•    The greater awareness amongst pupils about the dangers of obesity, smoking and other such activities that undermine pupils’ health

To develop children’s awareness of the dangers of obesity and smoking, class teachers have health and wellbeing units built into their long term plans and supported by the whole school planning.
