PE Curriculum

A wide range of activities are delivered in school which aim to engage and inspire all children. We are also committed to ensure that all children receive high quality well-planned PE.

Over the year each child will participate in games, athletics, dance and gymnastics lessons. Opportunities are also planned for swimming in Year 5. Our aim is that all children leave our school at the end of Year 6 able to swim at least 25 meters. In addition to this we have the Daily Mile for children to keep active during the day along with the WOW initiative to increase active travel to school.

Please refer to the curriculum/year group pages of the website for more details of PE lessons taught each term.

The Wider Curriculum

PE and sport has a high profile in our school and permeates many aspects of school life.

Throughout the year we hold theme weeks such as The Olympics or World Cup where children participate in a wide range of activities and have a ‘taster’ session of sports that otherwise they may never try.

During our residential visits, children are given opportunity to participate in many different activities which may include orienteering, assault course, kayaking, sailing, wind surfing and climbing.

In the summer term we also hold our annual Sports Day in which we encourage participation of all children and organise competitive races for our more sporting youngsters.

Talented children are signposted to local clubs and events to encourage them to develop their skills. One pupil was recently selected for Liverpool Harriers running team.

Beyond the School Day

The school is keen to provide a wide range of extra-curricular clubs for children throughout the year which are organised by our teaching staff and/or sports coaches.

Children enjoy the opportunity to work with different teachers and have the chance to try many sports such as Netball, Tennis, Football, Multi-skills, Hockey, Cricket, Rounders, Athletics and Cross Country. Registers are kept to ensure that all groups of pupils are represented.

We try to cater for all our children’s needs and so ask the children which clubs they would like to see included during the year; we also monitor participation and check uptake against gender and free school meals.

We enter a wide range of competitions and have had many successes including indoor athletics, cross country, dance, hockey and football.

Please refer to the After Schools Club page of the website for more details of the extra curricular activities on offer.

Primary school experiences are pivotal to the children’s future perception of physical activity and we believe that children leave our school equipped to enjoy sport for all its health and social benefits. For those who relish the competitive element, they gain the skills, confidence and relevant experience to succeed at their chosen level and discipline.

Should this funding become unavailable, the vital role of sports in contributing to the health and well-being of our pupils will still be recognised as a priority.  If necessary, funding would be made available for the school budget in order to continue with the high profile of sports in our school.
