PE Premium 16-17

The government has announced that it will continue to fund the PE premium which will allow us to build further upon the last three years. Last year was our most successful year of competitive sport that we have had in recent times, winning all but one level 2 tournament, and taking a team to a county finals. We also engaged more children in competitive sport and activity.

This year our action plan will include working with a local sports coach to further up-skill staff and run after school clubs, encouraging girls to take part in more competitive sport, and enhancing the provision for all children so that playtimes are more active, all whilst retaining and consolidating the progress we have made so far.

Tournament and Events

The format has changed so that all level 2 tournaments will be taking place in Ipswich, as direct entry, with no qualifiers at Hobrook. We wish to continue the tournaments at Holbrook Academy, so we are working with their PE department to ensure that teams have an opportunity to compete in Tag Rugby, Basketball, Tennis, Cricket and Netball over the year.

We took a team of children, some whom have not experienced competitive sport before, to take part in this our first handball festival for U9s.

Y3-4 Tag Rugby Festival

March 2017

Inspire Suffolk, Ipswich

We took 12 children from Year 3 and 4 to Ipswich to take part in the first Y3-4 Tag Rugby festival. There was super play from the children and we lost 3, drew 2 and won 3, developing our skills and tactical play as the afternoon progressed. Once again, the children were well behaved, show good team spirit and fair play.

Y5-6 Basketball Level 2 Tournament

March 2017

Inspire Suffolk, Ipswich

We took one team to the tournament and played against six other teams. The basketball game is played with boys in the first half and girls in the second half. The team were a lot more aggressive than the previous tournament and we brought in some Year 5 girls to play who stepped up to the challenge fantastically well. We won two, lost three but felt proud of the fact that we they were only close loses to schools much bigger than ourselves.

Y5-6 Quick Sticks

March 2017

St Jospeh's College, Ipswich

We took a team, for the first time in a while, to Ipswich to participate in this tournament that hosted over 15 local schools. Once again, the team's progress was visible over the tournament and we started with losses and ended with wins.

Well done everyone.

Y5-6 Basketball Pyramid tournament

February 2017

Holbrook Academy

Mrs Wiles kindly hosted a pyramid tournament for us so that we can continue the tradition of playing the local schools. This tournament gave us the opportunity to play two teams against two other schools: Stutton and Holbrook.

We learned a lot, including how to be aggressive in attack and noticeably improved within the tournament.

Two of our players were talent spotted by Ipswich Basketball. We came third and fourth.

Level 1: Basketball - Inter-house

Wolsey is on a strong sporting run at the moment; they won both lower and upper key-stage 2 to win overall this year's basketball tournament. Everyone in Key Stage 2 participated, with Year 6 leading their houses and making team decisions, scoring and timing. 


Y3-4 Dodgeball Festival

January 2017

Inspire Suffolk, Ipswich

This was the first of new festivals taking place in Ipswich for the Year 3-4 age group. We took a team after having coaching in their PE lessons. They won many matches, they lost a few, but most of all, they had fun. As it was a festival, there is no result, but for these children it was the new experience of competing that they enjoyed the most. 

Tag Rugby Festivals

November 2016

Holbrook Academy

Ipswich Rugby Club

We attended two festivals this year:The first was organised by our pyramid, the second was a festival organised by the School Games team in Ipswich. The RFU rule changes mean that competitive rugby of any kind is not experienced until children are older.

We took two teams to Holbrook, allowing for more children to experience competitive Tag Rugby. They thoroughly enjoyed this opportunity, even if it was very cold!


Level 2: Peninsula 5 a-side Football

November 2016

Shotley CP School

We hosted this event after a year's break, and we welcomed Sutton, Chelmondiston and Holbrook. There were 7 teams in total who played with great sportsmanship. Holbrook won the shield this time; our A team came third. Thank you to all of the teachers and parents who supported this event, which was thoroughly enjoyed by all.


Level 1: Inter-house Rugby

October 2016

We started our inter-house Tag Rugby tournament in but the rain prevented Lower Key Stage 2 from playing their matches. Wolsey won Upper Key Stage 2's matches.

This year's action plan.
