P.E and Sport 2017 - 2018

Mr Sanders


At Plantation Primary, we aim to make P.E and sport an integral part of our children's lives, as we believe in the positive impact it can have on our children's health, their social skills and their self-esteem. Therefore, we strive to provide as many opportunities for our children as possible by liaising with a number of key stakeholders.

Educate Awards 2017

Our commitment to providing invaluable sporting experiences for our children was recognised this year at the Educate awards, as we won the 'Outstanding Commitment to Sport in Primary School' category. Below is what the Educate Awards had to say about our application:


Sainsbury's School Games Mark

We are delighted to announce that Plantation was awarded the Gold school games mark this year, progressing from the Bronze award that we had achieved in the previous year. This award recognises the incredible amount of extra-curricular and competitive sporting opportunities on offer for all of our children, acknowledging that these have increased beyond what has been on offer in any years previously!


Merseyside Sports Partnership's Case Study on Plantation

We were ecstatic when Merseyside Sports Partnership (MSP) contacted us in April 2017 to conduct a case study on our outstanding use of Sports Premium funding. After liaising with us for a couple of months, MSP created a case study document and three short videos showcasing our school's use of funding. Read the document by clicking the image below and view the videos at the bottom of the page by clicking play!

These provide our children with high quality extra-curricular activities that enhance the learning of a variety of skills and techniques whilst also focusing on enjoyment and participation.   


Play Leaders

Each term, we select children to become play leaders. They have an important role of planning and officiating organised play activities for other children during break and lunch time periods. These opportunities provide our play leaders with valuable experiences that develop their leadership skills. In turn, our play and lunch time breaks are full of exciting activities for all of our children to take part in!

Our current play leaders are:

Charlie J    Phoebe W  Finnley C   Riley M   Jack C    Luke S    Stephen B    Ava M   Harris B   Lucy H-W   Phillip E    Hennie L   Bathany S    Lincoln C-G    Grace C    Ruby R
