Primary School PE and Sport Funding
In 2017 – 2018, the ‘Sugar Tax’ has meant that we have an increased funding allocation to further improve the delivery of PE and increase the activity levels of children in the school.

30 Minutes Daily Activity
At Renishaw Primary School, we are committed to the Governments’ recommendation for every child to have 30 minutes daily activity for every child on top of the their normal PE allocation. We do this by having 30 minutes directed exercise during the lunchtime period, where children of all ages take part in a range of activities which are led by our midday staff.
Working in partnership with Qualitas Sport
For the last two years we have been thrilled to be a part of working with Qualitas Sport. This has seen us compete in the small school Football and Netball Leagues and also be part of a number of sporting activities for different year groups to attend, water polo, bench ball, trampolining to name but a few!
We are also lucky enough to have our own sport specialist coach Andy Glossop, who visits our school weekly and is very popular amongst our children. His passion for enjoying P.E and sport is certainly exuding through the year groups he has worked with.
