We aim to provide as high a standard of teaching, coaching and competition as we can for the children, whatever their ability or motivation to take part. We believe that your child’s wellbeing relies on meeting all their needs with sport and PE one factor alongside their health, social skills and academic progress.

Our school receives around £9000 as School Sports Premium to support the development of sport and physical education at our school.

We are a member of the Bolsover School Sports Partnership which provides competitive sport opportunities (see below) as well as high quality coaching, training opportunities for school staff including lunchtime supervisors. They also provide bicycle training (Bikeability) for older pupils.

Through the Sports Partnership we have bought into specialist PE teachers who will work with the teachers to develop their PE teaching skills. This will take place throughout the year for half a day a week starting with basketball in the autumn term for Y4/5 classes and moving on to physical development for the foundation stage children.

In addition we also provide Lunchtime sports coaching through the North East Derbyshire County Council coaches. Our current coach, Zoe, works with Y1 through to Y6 on a variety of sports and physical activities four days a week. This includes running inter school (in school) competitions, as well as preparing the children for intra school (out of school) competitions.

Events will be planned throughout the year for the local family of schools and also across North East Derbyshire. We try and take part in as many of these as possible but this can fluctuate with the ‘timing’ around school circumstances.



The school offers a variety of extra-curricular clubs including sport. Some of these take place during lunchtime and others take place after school.  Current clubs can be found on the Newsletters or by contacting school. Through the year, some of the clubs we run are: football, tag rugby, table tennis, netball, hockey, cricket and athletics. Outside providers also support basketball, cricket and tennis clubs during the year. To ensure access to the competitive events the NEDCC lunchtime coach provides relevant coaching sessions.



We have excellent facilities including a modern Sports Hall, a large school field and markings for netball on our playground. The Sports Hall hosts local clubs including Taekwondo Martial Arts and Pilsley Football Club. We also have a large fixed play equipment area to develop balance and climbing.



We have extensive resources for PE and sport including Tag Rugby, UniHoc, Short Tennis, Football, Netball, Basketball, Frisbee Golf, Kwik Cricket, Badminton, Table Tennis and a very wide range of smaller equipment for curriculum sports and PE.
