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 or Sutton Academy) 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.
In 2016/2017 we were award a bronze award. We are striving to gain silver this year, and are already well on our way to achieving this by the end of the academic year. This involves us increasing the amount of children who participate in after school clubs and Schools Games competition, along with increasing the activity levels of children during the school day. Our Sports Ambassadors are helping us to do this by running competitions at break times (see Sports Ambassador page).

Sports Week - 2nd July 2018
We are holding our first whole school sports week in July and I am already really excited about what we can achieve. I want sports week to be a chance for children to experience new things that we don't currently offer as part of our curriculum, with the hope that we might help some children find the sport that is right for them. I am planning on inviting lots of visitors from different sports groups within our community, in to work with the children, helping them to develop active and healthy life styles. There will be competitions run for children within their lessons and to participate in at home. Watch this space for more news!
