Sports Premium




















At Norman Street Primary School we believe that physical education is a powerful tool by which to enhance children’s knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they can not only perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities, but can shape the personality and nature we want children in our school to demonstrate. These activities include dance, games, gymnastics, swimming and water safety, in addition to athletics and outdoor adventure activities whilst on residential in year 5. Physical education promotes an understanding in children of their bodies in action. It involves thinking, selecting and applying skills and promotes positive attitudes towards a healthy lifestyle; thus we enable them to make informed choices about physical activity throughout their lives. It also encourages healthy competition in and out of school as well as highlighting the importance of team building and forging social bonds. We strive to include all children of differing abilities in PE and provision is made for SEN children in the school.


We participated in countless extra curricular sporting activities in 2018-19 and experienced some remarkable achievements, which the children will remember for a long time.
