PE and Sports at Milefield

Sports premium grant from DfE

Please see below for our most recent Sports Premium grant and how we have spent it to ensure your pupils receive the best possible PE provision. The spending has been focused on training staff to deliver high-quality provision for all pupils in PE sessions/after-school clubs. Staff and pupils were trained by qualified sports coaches last academic year to ensure all pupils receive access to high-quality provision.

PE Curriculum

In PE, we follow the National Curriculum programmes of study. As a school, we build on Literacy and Maths skills taught throughout their time in primary school. Wherever possible, we link learning throughout the curriculum to a theme or a class novel.

Year 5/6 Olympics Competition at English Institute of Sport

12th January 2018

 On Monday 12th January, 21 pupils from Y5 and 6 took part in an inter-schools competition at the English Institute of Sports in Sheffield. They competed in events including sprint, long jump and javelin. All pupils were given the opportunity to compete against a variety of schools from across Yorkshire. They enjoyed competing on an actual running track in front of their peers not only from their own setting but over 20 others. They competed on the same track as Olympics legends like Jessica Ennis-Hill. This was an event they all enjoyed taking part in and especially winning some races! Below are some pictures from the event.

Orienteering at Cannon Hall
