Every school receives a sports grant as part of the Olympic legacy from London 2012.

We received a grant of £9,175 for this school year and have commissioned work from PE Partner (formerly TSC), along with our Aspire Partnership schools, to deliver coaching in school.


Our report on the impact of the sports funding for 2016/17, including our plan for development in 2017/18 is found below;

 PE Partner use a Spiral Curriculum approach to education, that introduces key concepts to students at a young age and covers these repeatedly, with increasing degrees of complexity. For more information about this see the pdf. link below.

Here is a link to the School Sports Partnership website for our school, where you can find information about upcoming competitions and clubs affiliated with Asquith Primary.




We are proud to be working alongside Premier League Primary Stars. This year (17/18) we will be working closely with coaches to plan and deliver fun and engaging PE activities to help pupils develop their skills in everything from balance and coordination to athletics and throwing skills. In addition to this, challenging topics such as resilience, diversity and self-esteem, will be brought to life by personal insights from children and top figures of the sporting world.

We were lucky enough to be visited by Leeds United goalkeeper Bailey Peacock, who kindly answered all of our questions about his inspirations, work ethic and hobbies outside of football.


We are incredibly proud to be awarded a gold School Games Award for the second consecutive year. A huge part of winning these awards is due to our level of participation in physical activity. In addition to the two hours of PE each week, and a weekly mile run, we also take part in competitions both in and outside of school. This is something we are very proud of!

For the past two years, as part of a whole school effort, each class has taken part in a weekly 1 mile run.

The benefits resulting from this have been fantastic! Not only has it been evident that children have been getting fitter, and therefore healthier, but it is also clear that they are becoming more confident, with children applying their new found determination to their work ethic in the classroom. We are keen to continue running at least once a week and ask you to please ensure that your child has appropriate footwear in school so that they are able to take part.

I am thrilled to announce that our Year 6 pupils placed third in the dodgeball tournament! Miss Creaser was bursting with pride as she reported back at how brilliantly they had played. Well done Year 6!

Another victory for Asquith

Chloe WETHERILL (wetherillc) on: Sports at Asquith

Unfortunately, due to illness, we were missing some key players this week. Nevertheless, Asquith battled on and won 2-1 against a good Gildersome side, and were awarded a 3-0 win against an absent Morley Victoria. The league table has yet to be confirmed, but we are confident we are near the top!

Winning in week two!

Chloe WETHERILL (wetherillc) on: Sports at Asquith

Our Year 5/6 footballers played their second week of fixtures for the 17-18 football league. We beat Blackgates 1-0, with a winning goal from Max. Then won 2-1 against East Ardsley, with two great goals from Liam and Max. What a turn around for Asquith!

Asquith vs Westerton

Chloe WETHERILL (wetherillc) on: Sports at Asquith

Our first league game of the season resulted in a 2-0 win for Westerton. Our newly-formed team performed respectably at Woodkirk Academy, but it's back to the drawing board now, ready in preparation for next week's match.
