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 School Games Competitions run by our local School's Games Organiser (See our Sports News page). In addition we always have on offer a wide range of sports in our extra-curricular clubs. (Please see our clubs pages)
The School Games Mark is a Government led awards scheme which reward schools for their commitment to the development of sporting competition across their school. Our recent awards are:
2016/2017 - bronze award.
2017/2018 - silver award.
2018/2019 - silver award.
We are striving to gain silver again this year, with some elements of gold, and are already well on our way to achieving this. This involves us increasing the amount of children who participate in after school clubs and School Games competitions, along with increasing the activity levels of children during the school day. We are also working on our links with local sports clubs, to enable us to sign post children to appropriate our of school activities.

Sports Week - July 2019
What an amazing sports week we had again this year! This week was better than I ever expected it could be. We are all so proud of how hard the children work and how involved they got in all the new activities they tried. We had amazing visits from Freestyle Footballers and Circusology - teaching the children things we don't normally cover in our usual PE curriculum. Our School Sports Day saw every child in school participate in cultural activities in the morning and then team sports activities in the afternoon. A great day was had by all! More details and hundreds of photographs can be viewed on the Sports News page and individual class pages.
Well Done everyone for all your hard work!!
Sports week 2020.....I can't wait!
