Long Row Primary School

Inspire, Respect, Belong

Sports Premium


At Long Row Primary School we believe that all children should have access to two hours of high quality PE per week. As a school we aim to ensure that encouraging children to enjoy physical activities and sport will ensure that they lead healthy and active lives long into adulthood. We believe that CPD for our staff is important to develop teaching and learning across the school. We use the schemes of work from the Amber Valley School Sports Partnership (AVSSP) which can be found at and have a qualified coach, James Smith, to support and develop the PE teaching skills of our staff on Wednesdays each week. As a school we invest £5700 in this provision.


Local links

Locally we work with Amber Valley School Sport Partnership, who are a local charity helping schools with PE, School Sport and Physical Activity. Annually we subscribe to the partnership to access a number of opportunities that our children can access, including a wide ranging competition calendar for all year groups. In addition, the subscription gives us support with delivering the PE curriculum and we are able to evidence the PE Premium by using to track and evidence our spend in school.


We are also lucky enough to be situated opposite Belper Meadows where a range of sports clubs are based.  We have links with many of these including -

Belper Meadows Tennis Club see -

Belper Town Football Club see -

Belper Hockey Club  see -

Belper Meadows Cricket Club see


Through our partnership link with AVSSP we also provide bikeability training for our students, which has supported children to gain an understanding of how to ride a bike and have a greater understanding of safer cycling [KS2]). We encourage as many of our children to actively travel to school through walking, scooting or cycling.


Our school is committed to ensuring that children have their recommended 30 minutes daily physical activity in school and whilst we encourage active travel to and from school, we also have a number of extra curricular clubs that support this. Our active playtimes have been supported by using 'Craze of the Week' physical activities, Mini-Leader games as well as extra curricular clubs that are delivered by James Smith, Teachers and Central Soccer School - who provide lunchtime and after school football clubs. Activities include Paceball and Multi-Sports after school clubs.
