St Bartholomew's

Primary Academy

Hand in hand we learn, we grow, we soar


‘I don’t give up and I bounce back from my mistakes.’


‘I treat others how I would like to be treated.’


‘I am friendly and caring in my words and actions.’


‘I am honest and helpful and make the right choices.’


‘I rise to a challenge and I am brave.’


‘I have love for myself, for others and for God.’


From September 2013 the Government has given every primary school in England funding to be used to develop the teaching and learning in physical education and sport within schools. Within the Diocese of Salisbury Academy Trust we aim to provide high quality sport. At St Bartholomew’s we have used the money over a number of years we have provided the following:


Access to high quality coaching in a range of sports.

Professional development for staff to enable them to teach PE more effectively.

Specialists teachers and coaches to broaden the pupils’ experience of other sports.

Additional PE resources to support the delivery of high quality PE.

In Year 6 we currently have 81% of children who can swim the currently recommended 25 metres.

The children worked fantatsically as a team and took part in problem solving tasks, fire lighting and canoeing. The highlight was when one canoe tipped over and 3 ended up in the lake, but they showed amazing perseverance and got straight back in, even though they were a bit soggy!!

We supported Sports Relief this year by challenging each class to do as many steps as possible in a week. The loosing classes from each phase saw their teachers cycle their way through Golden assembly. The winning groups joined Miss Lawrence for a fun dance session and wore their own shoes to school to award their amazing feet! Together we raised over £200 for this amazing charity.
