PE Curriculum

The Wider Curriculum

Throughout the year we do a variety of other activities which permeate through many aspects of school life. Children can participate in taster sessions of a sport activity they may have not tried before. During our residential visits children are given the opportunity to participate in a wide range of activities which may include orienteering, assault courses and team building activities. In the Summer Term we also hold our annual Sports Day in which we encourage participation of all children and organise a variety of activities including competitive races. Other agencies are used to enhance the variety of activities available and we take full advantage when these opportunities become available. For example we participate in tournaments in a variety of sports within the STARS group of schools. Year R and 1 children work with coaches from a local sports centre on a weekly basis. The coaches also allow our teachers to continually pick up new and exciting ideas to use in our future PE lessons. Talented children are also signposted to local clubs and events to encourage them to develop their skills further. The school council continues to work on developing the use of play leaders for our recreation time at school. It is hoped that in the future we will have the funds to redesign the playground and the markings linking fun, fitness and outdoor learning.

Beyond the School Day

At St Mary’s CE Primary School we are keen to provide a wide range of extra-curricular clubs throughout the year which are either organised by school staff or visiting coaches. Children enjoy the opportunity to try many different sports such as Basketball, netball, cricket, dance, multi-skills sports and rounders. We try to ensure that we cater for all our children’s needs and we regularly monitor participation and check uptake against gender, age and Free School meals. Through the entering of competitions and tournaments we encourage children to participate in team sports. As a school we receive £8380 for the academic year 2015/16 to help support the delivery of a high quality PE curriculum.
