Children in All Saints' CE Primary School will enjoy a rich variety of experiences in Physical Education. Opportunities will be provided which will enable them to plan, participate in and evaluate work appropriate to their age and their needs. Gaining knowledge and understanding and developing a range of social skills are considered important aspects of Physical Education, as well as improving the physical skills, health and fitness of our children.

 

Additionally, we will encourage everyone in our care to adopt a lifelong commitment to a healthy, active and enjoyable lifestyle.

PE AND SPORTS GRANT

 

Children at All Saints’ CE Primary School are fortunate to have an excellent PE curriculum and also access to many activities, which are above and beyond those offered by many primary schools. Through external funding, children have experienced for example: kayaking, caving and rock climbing, among other outdoor pursuits.

 

The children begin swimming lessons at school in Year 2 and each year continue to swim for 1 term in Years 2, 5 and 6 and 2 terms in Years 3 and 4.

 

We, as a school, are keen to fully utilise our 2018 /19 PE specific budget and sugar tax budget to enhance both the enjoyment and also skill levels of our pupils through sport. The grant will be utilised in several ways to help promote a more active lifestyle by providing greater opportunities.

 

  • We will use Sports Coaches to work with children both in and outside curriculum time with the aim to develop CPD and sustainability through increasing staff pedagogy.
  • We have used: Dance, Multi-Skills, Cricket and Tennis coaches to develop pupil skills from Reception up to Year 6.
  • We are part of the Cockermouth cluster and take part in 13 sporting festivals throughout the year.
  • We have level A, B and C competitions to ensure a range of children with different abilities have the opportunity to represent the school.
  • Alongside the above competitions we aim to increase participation of the less active children in a sustainable way for the future through targeted clubs and club links.
  • Our Year 6 pupils undergo Sports Leadership Workshops, which promotes more active lunch times, with activities ran by our sport leaders.
  • As part of our 30/30 commitments each year group completes run/activities at different times throughout the day.
  •  

In addition, we participate in festivals ran by Wright Sports Services and local sport clubs, which in turn supports the local sporting community enhancing club links.

 

School Games

 

We are one of 35500 schools registered with ‘School Games’ as part of our registration we run an annual ‘Sports Day’ at the Copeland Athletic Stadium, in association with Chris Wright from Wright Sports Services. We also run a traditional ‘Sports Day’ on the playing field.

 

Extra-Curricular

 

School staff devote their time to leading Extra-Curricular clubs, dedicated to sport. Throughout the year we offer: Sports Club (KS1), Football (KS2), Tag Rugby (KS2) Climbing club, Orienteering, and Cricket. On top of this, several staff members give up their own time at weekends and evenings to supervise sports teams taking part in competitions. Over 85% of children in KS2 and over 60% of children in KS1 partake in school-organised Extra-Curricular Activities at All Saints’ CE Primary School throughout the year.

The grant has enabled us to develop teachers’ and pupils’ skills.  Specialist teachers have been employed for a variety of sports including multi-skills, cricket, dance and gym.  Pupils’ skills have been extended and this is something that we continue to build on.  On occasions specific children have been targeted to develop their skills and improve their fitness.  The PE and Sports money has enabled pupils to continue to participate in sports including after school tuition which has promoted enthusiasm in a variety of activities.

 

We have noticed that children’s skill have developed and fitness has improved as the participation in sports has increased throughout the school and children have been taught the importance of the participation in sport in creating a healthy lifestyle.
