PE and Sport Premium

Active Playgrounds


Every year we use our sports funding to purchase a great range of games and equipment to keep our children active during break and lunchtime. The equipment is managed by our Year 5 'Sports Leaders', who are trained to organise active play during lunchtime. This also means that children always have someone to play with and lots of fun things to do. We have plenty of open space to help the children to keep fit and healthy. For children who prefer a more gentle lunchtime, we have a 'quiet' area where less active games are allowed.


Our Physical Activity ethos


At Rickleton Primary School, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.


Our dedication last academic year to the improvement of Physical Activity for all our pupils and the delivery of high-quality PE sessions and after-school activities was rewarded with the accreditation of GOLD Standard for the City of Sunderland Active Charter Award (3rd year running) and Bronze Standard in the Sainbury’s School Games. We intend to work to again to improve upon these standards and to extend our provision.


Our School Sport Lead is Mr Woodhead
