PE and Sport Premium Grant

Physical Education in All Saints' CE Primary School

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.


The objectives in our Physical Education work


All Saints' CE Primary School believes the following points are an accurate list of the objectives within our Physical Education programme:

  • develop an understanding of the importance of exercise in maintaining a healthy life
  • develop a range of psychomotor skills
  • maintain and increase physical mobility and flexibility
  • develop stamina and strength
  • develop an understanding and appreciation of the purposes, forms and conventions of a selection of physical activities
  • develop the capacity to express ideas in dance forms
  • develop the appreciation of the concepts of fair play, honest competition and good character
  • develop the ability to appreciate the aesthetic qualities of movement
  • develop the capacity to maintain interest and to persevere to achieve success
  • foster self-esteem through the acquisition of physical competence and poise
  • develop self-confidence through understanding the capabilities and limitations of oneself and others




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.
  • In addition, we participate in festivals ran by Wright Sports Services and local sport clubs.




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.


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


We also, as a school, fully utilise the Sainsbury’s Active Kids Vouchers to replenish stock from our PE stores and also enhance the children’s sporting experiences through using proper equipment designed specifically for the sport they are doing, for example, we purchased playground goals for football and also balls suitable for the yard environment as well as replenishing ‘Huff and Puff’ stores for lunchtime activities


In 2017 /18 academic year the school has received a grant of £17,530:

Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety

Please complete all of the below:

What percentage of your Year 6 pupils could swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year?


What percentage of your Year 6 pupils could use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke] when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year?

Schools can choose to use the Primary PE and Sport Premium to provide additional provision for swimming but this must be for activity over and above the national curriculum requirements. Have you used it in this way?

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.
