Physical Education in All Saints' CE Primary School
We were delighted to receive a School Games Gold Mark for 2017/2018 and again for 2018/19. This is something which we use to benchmark to ensure every child has the best opportunity for success through Physical Education. Please click the following link to highlight the criteria met to gain this award:
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:
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, canoeing, ghyll scrambling and orienteering 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 PE specific 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.
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.
We are one of 35500 schools registered with ‘School Games’ as part of our registration we run an annual ‘Sports Day’ either at the Copeland Athletic Stadium, or a traditional ‘Sports Day’ on the playing field.
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), 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.
