PE is taught and planned for in each year group following the Long Term Plan you can access below.....
Each class takes part in two hours of PE a week. We build in a wide range of progressive skill development in the different sports we teach as well as small sided games and competitions. Tactics and fair play are always discussed as well as what happens to our bodies when we exercise. We also discuss particular skill/fitness practises that will benefit particular sports and children are encouraged to evaluate their own and peer performances. Our personal aim is to ensure all children meet the required standard in swimming 25m by the time they leave primary school. Our children begin swimming in Year 3 and continue until they can swim.
Our PE curriculum is enhanced through our Sports Premium Money which has allowed us to buy resources and pay for coaching and training etc. (See our Sports Premium page for more detail) We go out to competitions and festivals whenever we can to extend our experiences (many of which are at Quarrydale) and we also take part in lots of the Sainsbury’s School Games Competitions. Below you can access our School Competition Calendars. In addition we always have on offer a wide range of sports in our extra-curricular clubs. (Please see our clubs pages)
Sainsbury's School Games
The Sainsbury's School Games Mark is a Government led awards scheme which reward schools for their commitment to the development of sporting competition across their school.
We have been working on the Bronze Award. We have submitted our evidence and now are just awaiting the result, so we will let you know. Meanwhile we are going to start working towards the Silver Award.
