Sport & PE
At All Saints’ we place great emphasis on PE and school sport. We aim to provide a high-quality Physical Education curriculum which inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in both competitive sport and non-competitive activities. We provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health, fitness and well-being. The children regularly compete in both intra and inter school sport as well as other activities. This helps to build character and embed values such as fairness and mutual respect.
The children love to report on their PE and sporting activities - take a look at their latest Newsletter below.
All classes have two hours of timetabled PE a week. The lessons are planned around the PE new framework objectives.
PE & Sports Premium 2014-15
The government is providing additional funding to improve the provision of PE and sport in primary schools. Schools have the freedom to choose how they do this, so long as the money is spent on the provision of PE and sport.
We have chosen to spend this money on providing a wider range of sporting opportunities for all children; enhancing teachers' skills in delivering different sports; developing skills of midday supervisors and increasing the number and range of competitive opportunities open to children.
We have now employed a Team Leader with responsibility for developing this area further; Mrs Sargeant is working with Y5 children to develop sports leadership skills and is auditing our provision so that it can be further enhanced.
Sports Premium 2015 statement
Last year, the majority of our funding helped to pay for the employment of our new PE HLTA, Mrs. Sargeant and this has had a demonstrable impact on the number of opportunities available to our children and the quantity of children able to enjoy them! All children took place in several inter house competitions throughout the year. The percentage of children participating in tournaments from 29% to 61% at level 2 (with other schools). Next year our target is for 75% percentage of children to take place in level 2 competitions.
We were placed 46th in the Derbyshire Games Championship table; in 2015 – 2016 we aim to be placed much higher. In 2014 – 2015, we were awarded the Silver School Games mark; in 2015 --16, we’re going for gold!
This year our target is to increase pupil participation in level 2 competitions (external) and the range and diversity of sport for all children. Whilst we are delighted that almost 95% really enjoy PE and that a similar number want to compete more, we want to increase this and the percentage of children who are signposted to take part in sport outside school.
