In our last guide, we walked you through what the Primary Sports & PE Premium is, and some of the ways you can use it to get the best out of children. In Part 2 of our PE & Sport Advice guides, we take a look at some impact evidence. Playforce has worked with many schools over the last 20 years, who have been keen to develop the active elements within their play areas, take a look as some of our case studies below. 

George Spicer Primary School, Middlesex 

We don’t like to show off but when you get a review like the one we got from George Spicer Primary, it’s hard not to. Described as “better than Disneyland”, their new playground now offers children an opportunity to challenge themselves physically. The children have learnt how to use all of the space available so that they can be more active in any situation. You can learn more here.

Millfield Primary School, Cambridgeshire 

Millfield Primary School wanted to develop their playground to fit with their focus on active, healthy children. They designed a space that would challenge their children and make getting active more fun. You can find out more here. 

Churchfields VC Primary School, Somerset 

Inspired by the 2012 Olympics, Churchfields VC Primary School wanted to develop a playground that would encourage their pupils to get outside and active. Read more here.

Arbour Vale Specialist School Sports College 


As a school sports college, they’re always looking for new ways to encourage our pupils to take part in active and creative play, eventually leading into sports. They wanted to develop their playground so that it would have an area dedicated to combining play and sports as well as musical, creative and discovery ideas. Find out more here.

Angel Road Junior School, Norwich 

Developing the playground at Angel Road Junior School has created a new space where children can be active in both lessons and play time. Introducing physically challenging equipment to the pupils has given their break times a whole new purpose. Take a look at what we did here.

Aloeric Primary School, Wiltshire 

For Aloeric Primary School, their natural surroundings were the inspiration for their new playground. They wanted their outdoor environment to inspire the children’s motivation to get outside and actively involved in more sport. By installing a range of flexible equipment, they gave their children a wealth of opportunities to enjoy more physical activity. See more here.
