Keeping Pupils Informed about PESSPA
Pupils can access information about in school and out of school sports opportunities by looking at our PESSPA (Physical Education, School Sports and Physical Activity) display board in the hall which Mrs Reynolds updates regularly.
PESSPA information for parents and families
Our school Facebook page contains the most up-to-date information about school sports. The following PDF will give parents and families some ideas for websites jam packed with ideas for encouraging pupils to move at home! Please take a look.
After School Sports
We are working hard to provide pupils at Thornley Primary School with opportunities to try different sports activities out of school hours to both enhance their skills and promote the benefits of exercise and a healthy lifestyle.
The Government is providing funding to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
For further details, please visit our Premium Allocations section where our Sports Premium information is located.
We thought you might like to see some of our sporting achievements from the previous school years. Please take a look at our gallery of images.
School Sports Award
In the academic year (2018/2019) we earned our School Games Gold Award in recognition of our commitment to school sport, physical education and competitions. Luke Wilson and Laura Jane Parker (Head boy and Head girl) were first to get their hands on our new trophy. Well done to all pupils and staff but a special thank you to Miss Hunter and Mrs Reynolds for all the work that they continue to do to promote sports and the importance of physical education in school.
