Primary school sport is set to be transformed thanks to a £150 million-a-year boost that will improve coaching for the youngest pupils and inspire the Olympic and Paralympic stars of the future, the Prime Minister announced in March 2013.

London 2012 gave Britain a once in a lifetime opportunity to inspire a nation to enjoy sport and the Government wants to embed that into the school day from an early age.

The new sports funding aims to improve the quality of provision in every state primary school in England.

At The Friars Primary School, we believe that PE and Sports are an integral part of every child’s education and development. Building on the success of the London Olympic Games, we aim to inspire the next generation by providing a wide range of sporting opportunities that cater for children of all abilities. We feel that all children should have access to quality PE provision, with the intention of increasing the amount of young people taking part in regular sporting activity throughout their lives.


Our PE kit consists of black shorts or jogging trousers and a black t-shirt alongside a school jumper for colder weather. Children should wear appropriate footwear such as trainers. The children will participate in outdoor activities all year round, so a waterproof jacket or a tracksuit is also advisable as the weather gets colder.


The day your child takes part in Physical Education lessons can change due to variations in timetables or events taking place in school. However, the regular days are shared with parents in advance. Year 4, 5 & 6 have swimming lessons every throughout the year and parents will be notified of these dates. Children will need to bring in a swimming kit that includes: a swimming costume or swimming trunks/shorts, a towel and a swimming hat for both girls and boys.


We always work hard to provide a wide variety of free sports clubs for the children that take place at lunch times and after school. These would not be possible without the dedicated staff who give up their own time to provide these for the children. The clubs do change with the seasons and are in line with many of the local sporting competitions that are held each year.


We will soon have a dedicated blog where you can keep up to date with the efforts of The Friars Primary School many sports teams. Each post will be written by members of the team that took part. Here you will also find results and forthcoming events along with links to local sports clubs in the community and the many external agencies that provide sporting opportunities on site for our children.

Appropriate Clothing All children change into appropriate clothing for all PE sessions. The PE kit consists of black shorts, a black t-shirt and suitable footwear (pumps of trainers).

No items of jewellery should be worn – with the exception of studs. If earrings cannot be taken out, they should be taped over. Long hair should be tied back.

Non-Participants Children not participating in PE should bring a note explaining the reason for this request. The child should accompany the class and take an alternative role (PE Lesson Observation Sheet).

No child should be excluded from any physical education programme unless advised by a medical professional.

Safe Practice Teachers should deal with situations using professional judgement. In more serious cases the trained first aider will be sent for by a responsible child. All accidents should be recorded on Medical Tracker. Inhalers for children suffering from asthma should be made readily accessible.

Any damage, breakage or loss of resources should be reported to the PE Subject Leader and Site Manager as soon as possible. Any damage to a piece of apparatus which could cause subsequent injury must be isolated from use, and reported. No other groups or individuals should be able to access the resource until such time as it is made safe.


  • Children will be taught to lift, carry and replace equipment safely.
  • All equipment will be checked by the teacher before use.
  • When working outdoors teachers will establish certain boundaries.
