Review of sports funding 2017-18

 Proposed Sports funding 2018 – 19


At Dearham Primary School we value all sporting activities.

The curriculum

All pupils have access to a broad PE curriculum. This is supplemented by a large range of enrichment activities.

The school holds an annual day of sport where specialist coaches come in to deliver a range of activities.

The school also holds an annual Village Run where all pupils from Year 2 upwards complete a cross country course around the village. This is extremely well supported by the village community.


The school takes part in a range of inter and intra school competitions but the main aim is for pupils to improve their fitness, improve their competency but also to ENJOY sport.
Dearham Primary School holds a Sports day for all pupils from Nursery upwards.


School employs a specialist gymnastics teacher and all pupils from Year 2 upwards have access to high quality gymnastics teaching. Dearham Primary School consistently performs well in County gymnastic events.


All Key stage pupils have a weekly swimming lesson. School currently holds the trophy for the Maryport consortium swimming gala.

At the end of 2018, 113 pupils (36%) out of 316 on roll were able to confidently swim 25 meters unaided.
