Dancing on the Green – Wells, Somerset.


“I really enjoyed my years in Country Dancing because we get to learn about different styles. It is fun to go to Wells and give it all we’ve got! All that practising paid off. I also love seeing different schools and working together with my friends.” Millie Year 4


“I really enjoyed doing Country Dancing last year and this year because it is great fun learning the different dances. It’s also amazing going to Wells and make friends with children from other years you would not have spoken to before. I know so many more dance moves and children now!” Katie Year 4

On Tuesday 14th March SMR Hockey team went to a Quick sticks Hockey Festival. There were 20 teams competing and throughout the day we played 8 of these teams. We managed to win, draw and loose but the most important thing was that we had a enjoyable, competitive day of hockey. The children showed fantastic team work and sportsmanship and were an asset to the school.



Basketball Team 2016

Over the last 3 weeks our basketball team have been competing in a Basketball league at Hengrove Leisure Centre. Bristol Flyers have been coaching us during our PE lessons and we have been improving our passing, dribbling and shooting skills.We played several matches each week and made it to the Bronze medal play off game which were extremely proud of because there were 12 teams in our league. We lost 2 -1 and we felt disappointed but overall we felt that are skills have improved over the last 3 weeks and we played well as a team. Thank you to our parents who came to support us. 



A team of 10 children from year 5 and 6 successfully participated in the annual South Bristol tag rugby series. We played against a range of schools to determine which league we were going to play in. Due to winning our first four games we were grouped with the strongest schools in South Bristol. This gave us an excellent opportunity to compete against the best. 


As a team we won as many as we lost which is an outstanding effort considering it was the first time the team played together and it was an introduction for a few players who had never played tag rugby before. As the weeks passed, not only did our skill set improve but our team ethic surpassed expectations. Gracious in victory and defeat, the players did themselves and our school proud. 


I'd like to thank the parents and carers who came along to support the team through rain and shine. Thank you to the members of staff who helped coach and mentor the team. However, most importantly, well done and thanks to the team for their endless enthusiasm and commitment to their peers. 


C'mon Redcliffe!

'What is the Primary Sports Fund?'


Primary Sport Funding

What is the Primary Sport Fund?


The government are providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2015 to 2016 and 2016 to 2017 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport  and will be allocated to primary school headteachers.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £8,000 plus £5 per eligible pupil between YR and Y6.  At St. Mary Redcliffe C of E  Primary we are committed to providing children with opportunities to take part in excellent physical education in school with access to high quality equipment and expert coaching. We aim to offer a diverse range of after-school activities alongside opportunities for our children to compete against others locally and nationally.




Proposed Sports Premium Spending 2015-2016

Sports Premium Proposed Spending 2015-16


To provide 1:1 coaching for teachers in order to deliver high quality PE lessons in all areas of the PE curriculum

To continue to involve pupils in a wide range of sporting competitions

To improve and develop PE resources for all pupils

To raise the profile of PE

To develop in all pupils a life long love of sport and physical activity


Proposed Expenditure:

  • 1:1 coaching provided by Superstars for the whole academic year
  • 1:1 coaching provided by Bristol Rugby for the whole year
  • Membership of Ashton Park School partnership and network of sporting competitions
  • Transport to and from competitions
  • PE resources
  • Rugby kit


Since September 2013 the number of children participating in sport at St. Mary Redcliffe Primary has risen substantially. This has been reflected in the on the field success the school has had (reaching the county finals level 3 activities in athletics and participating in a range of sports this year including: football, hockey, athletics, basketball and tag rugby!) 

Every single child in EYFS, KS1 and KS2 has participated in a competitive sport which include: Sports days, Sprints and representing the school in one of the following sports against other schools: football, netball, hockey, athletics, swimming, basketball, tag rugby and dance.

Ashton Park Sports Partnership
An amount of the money will be used to buy into the Ashton Park Sport Partnership. It is a vital tool that we have to enable all pupils the opportunity to compete in a wide range of sports at both local and county level. Cherry Kraus (the director) and her team put on a range of festivals to suit all needs. They are always competitive and allow schools to progress onto county, regional and national competitions.  As well as providing the children with much needed competition, they provided the school and teachers with a wide variety of CPD opportunities that not only build teachers’ confidence but allow high quality teaching.

Super Stars Coaching and Bristol Rugby Coaching

Sports participation at St. Mary Redcliffe will be so much more than just PE lessons, with every child in KS1 & KS2 having the opportunity, resources and guidance to be the very best they can be.

Selected curriculum PE lessons will be supported by a fully qualified, sports coach (Josh). The ratio will not only allow fantastic quality-of-delivery, but will also allow the existing primary school teachers to become actively involved in each session. This approach will see improved teacher/pupil monitoring & assessment as well 'continuous professional development' opportunities for the teacher. This will ensure pupils become physically literate, enabling them to access a lifelong participation in physical activity.   

Also, a wide variety of after school & lunchtime sports clubs will be available to the children throughout the academic year. 
The relationship between the school and its sporting partners has been created to ensure a sustainable legacy for the children, the school and the local area; and will also allow collaboration opportunities with other schools through tournaments, competitions and festivals.

Examples of provision at our school during 2015-16 include:-
Weekly sport which includes, football, hockey, dance, multi- skills, tag-rugby, netball, games skills, basketball and athletics.

  • Football, gymnastics, dance, multi- skills, tag-rugby, netball, games skills, basketball and athletics after school clubs.
  • Weekly access to qualified sports coaches.
  • Access to competitive sports which include matches, tournaments and festivals
  • inter and intra school games.
  • Swimming.
  • ‘Sign posting’ pupils to extended school sports activities and clubs outside of school time.
  • Sign posting pupils to holiday sporting activities.
  • Celebrating sporting success in and outside school.
  • Key Stage 1 & 2 annual Sports Day.
  • Dance activities and festivals.


Commitment to competition


At St. Mary Redcliffe C of E Primary we believe that regular competition is the key to engage children in sport and drive motivation to participate. For this reason, the school is a regular participant in local competitions against other schools. Since September 2013 our school has taken part in:

Country Dancing at Wells


On the 13th June, 15 girls went to Wells Cathedral to perform their country dancing skills. There was a mixture of Year 5’s and Year 2’s. During term 5 we learnt 16 dances, not including the sword dance which only 8 girls did. There are 3 different types of dances: square, circle and longways. Miss Price taught us the dances, she was amazing!

We danced our 3 favourite dances, and the sword dance, at the school fair the weekend after.

First thing we did at Wells was parade through the town centre, in our red patterned skirts; this included us holding our school banner, which Miss Ali had improved for us. We then began dancing. Unfortunately we missed one dance because of a toilet break. We were all extremely tired at the end, but it was worth it!

Our Yr3/4 tennis team represented our school fantastically well today! Each player participated in 4 matches and every point scored counted towards our overall total for the school. There was some brilliant serving and volleying and it was a brilliant venue in which to play tennis. We saw Tom our tennis coach from David Llyod who came to support us and give us a few tips. It was a great day and really inspired us to play more tennis and look forward to Wimbledon!!

Tag Rugby Yr 5/6

Match report by Will Chapman


At the beginning of the tournament we were quite nervous, but as the matches went by we started to run fast, pass more accurately and the opposition's defence could not cope with such speed, so we scored several additional tries.

We played Parson Street and beat them 7-6 and Luckwell 8-7 and our scores and tries were quite frequent. We made a great start but lost the next two games. After several weeks and matches we came a respectable 6th place out of over 15 schools. We played really well even though we did not play every game.
