The Kit and Equipment Scheme forms part of the Premier League Primary Stars offer to primary schools in England and Wales. This is a curriculum-linked education programme that uses the appeal of the Premier League and its clubs to inspire children to learn, be active and develop important life skills.


Delivered by the Football Foundation, the Premier League Primary Stars Kit and Equipment Scheme gives teachers a range of equipment that can be used across different curriculum areas to get children active.


Mathematician Rachel Riley and children’s authors Cressida Cowell and Dan Freedman also helped to create the teaching packs, which use real life sport examples to put lessons into a relevant and engaging context for children.


Richard Scudamore, Executive Chairman of the Premier League and Football Foundation Trustee, said: “Congratulations to Kimbolton Primary Academy on their successful application for a Premier League Primary Stars Kit and Equipment pack. We hope this kit, coupled with the free downloadable online resources, will help teachers harness the popularity of football to inspire primary school kids in everything from Maths and English to teamwork and sport.”


Miss Bleakley, Subject Leader at KPA said: “I hope the Premier League sports equipment will help add to our successes in PE and sport at KPA and help inspire the children to stay active and live healthy lifestyles. We offer a wide range of sports clubs and activities and the equipment we have received will help support and grow this further!’

KS1 had to balance a beanbag, throw beanbags into a hoop and do a standing long jump. KS2 took part in a slalom relay race, shot put and a standing long jump. The second half of the morning was spent on the track- with all children taking part in a range of races such as sprints, relays and ball games. 


The children all showed many of the school games values of self-belief, respect, passion, determination and honesty.


The points for our three houses was so close all through the morning, with Montagu just taking the lead at the end of the session. A big well done to all those who took part, KPA staff for helping guide the children and man different stations and also parents for coming and supporting!

The Cambridgeshire Primary Schools’ Cross-Country Relay Championships- 19th April 2017


The Cambridgeshire Primary Schools’ Cross-Country Relay Championships took place yesterday afternoon at Priory Park in St Neots. The event, which is one of the largest of its kind in the country, was attended by 70 schools from across Cambridgeshire. We took a team of 4 girls from Great Staughton and a joint boys team with KPA. I have to say, that I think this was one of the most exciting Cross Country Championships that I have ever attended (and I have attended many!) Our children were outstanding! Their commitment to the event and their teamwork, which was so evident yesterday, was inspirational. All of our athletes gave 100% - I think that they even surprised themselves. Perhaps the best part of the afternoon was looking at the smiles of the children as they finished their lap – they then continued to run around with their other team mates offering encouragement. It was such a pleasure to accompany the teams and I look forward to receiving the final results.

Everyone Health visited school on Monday 9th January. They supported Oak and Ash in making mini vegetable quiches. The children learnt different skills such as cutting, rolling, cracking eggs and baking. We hope you enjoyed eating them at home!



17th November 2016- Everyone Health

On Thursday 17th November Everyone Health visited KPA. They held a Healthy Plate session with each class in which they discussed the different food groups, what you need to stay healthy and ways of ensuring we keep our bodies healthy.

The children raced to fill the Healthy Plate and then had the opportunity to draw their own food plate. This allowed them to make comparisons between what they eat in a day and what is recommended on the Healthy Plate. This was a valuable lesson in keeping our bodies and minds healthy through the foods that we eat. 

Everyone Health also offer drop in sessions, 6 week courses and support with leading a healthy lifestyle- all of which is free to access! Their mission is to create a sustained positive impact on the health and well-being of local communities, enabling individuals to drive and sustain change. If you would like any advice or support please feel free to contact them. The details can be found on their website:


14th November 2016- Gymnastics club at KPA

We had lots of equipment out today including the wall bars. Backward rolls, balance beams, bars, dive forward rolls head stands and handstands are all improving. The children are loving it!


7th November 2016 - Year 3-4 DLPT Sports Tournament

Year 3 and 4 had a great morning at the DLPT Sports Tournament. The children worked well as a team and showed excellent communication skills. They played against the other Trust schools in Netball and Dodgeball, and also had a practical session about healthy eating. Thank you very much to the parents who helped with lifts and supported the children today. Your help is very much appreciated!



3rd November 2016- Year 5 and 6 DLPT sports tournament


Well done team KPA! Worthy winners of this term's Y5/6 DLPT tournament at Winhills today! The team played a series of football, netball and dodge ball games to win. Despite being the smallest school there, fielding the smallest team, they showed great team spirit and exemplary behaviour throughout. A great credit to our school! Many thanks to the parents who helped with transport and stayed to support. 


Hunts SSP Tag Rugby Tournament Results

On Tuesday 18th October a team of nine children from years 5 and 6 went to compete in the Hunts SSP Tag Rugby tournament at the Huntingdon Rugby Club. Despite the rainy weather the team succeeded in securing 4th place in the small schools competition. The match report can be found below:

Many congratulations to the 37 teams who took part in the Hunts School Sports Partnership Year 5 & 6 Tag Rugby Tournaments this week. Around 430 pupils from 'A', 'B' and 'C' teams developed their match play skills over 94 matches, for many it was their first time of playing at a community club.
The Huntingdon Rugby Club were excellent hosts and we had fine weather despite the forecast. A great time was had by all.
This event offered children an opportunity to play in a fun environment, with time to practice and develop skills such as decision making and team work, their confidence grew throughout the tournament.
Young leaders from Hinchingbrooke School and Sawtry Village College were trained by The RFU (the national governing body for Rugby) tutors to support the event and on the day community club coaches also supported match play. Overall the standard of play was excellent and players new to game progressed significantly. 
Pupil Quotes: 
“It was fantastic and fun to meet the other teams”  “It was really fun – even though we only won 1 match – I enjoyed it”
Teacher Quotes: 
“It was great to see how much our team improved over the afternoon, receiving lots of advice and help” “An excellent event, well organised with an enthusiastic atmosphere”
Please see the results table below: Congratulations to Westfields and Priory Junior Schools for coming first and second in the Larger Schools  "A" Teams and Spaldwick and Holywell CofE Primary schools for coming first and second in the  Small Schools "A" Teams.  All four schools now qualify to represent Hunts SSP in the Level 3 Spring School Games.  We wish them good luck!

Watch this space for details of the upcoming Tag Rugby Tournament on the 18th October. Our year 5 and 6 team are busy preparing to take part in the HSSP tag Rugby tournament. 







On 24th May, the tennis team went to Huntingdon Tennis Club with Mrs Griffiths.  First we had to register, then Mrs Griffiths put stickers onto al the players so we could all play. 


There were four people in the KPA team (Olivia, Grace, Chris and me, James).  We played five matches and won all of them!  We all did overhead serves and aced some of them! 


When it was results time, we were overjoyed to find out we had won the whole morning tournament!  We received some certificates and a big trophy.  We are now through to the final round where we will represent our area.
