PHYSICAL EDUCATION & SPORTS
Coldean Primary School believes that physical education has a vital contribution to pupils' physical literacy and well-being. We teach a high-quality physical education curriculum with which we hope to inspire all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. Our broad and balanced PE curriculum, which covers the statutory National Curriculum, is intended to aid pupils’ increasing self-confidence and their ability to manage themselves and their bodies within a variety of movement situations. All of this is experienced in a safe and supportive environment.
- Learning objectives enable rapid and sustained progression offer children a stimulating, enjoyable and appropriately challenging learning experience.
- By offering opportunities to compete in sport and other activities we endeavour to build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
- Coldean Primary School offers a range of activities and teaching approaches which aim to give pupils opportunities to develop their creative and expressive abilities. Pupils are encouraged to appreciate the importance of a healthy and fit body, and all will begin to understand factors which affect health and fitness.
- It is intended that all pupils will achieve in PE and all will enjoy success and be motivated to further develop their individual potential both in and beyond school.
PE and Sport Funding
The Government provides funding to improve the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport you offer.
This means that schools should use the premium to:
- develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport activities that your school already offers
- build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years
We use the premium to secure improvements in the following indicators:
- the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
- the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
- increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
- broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
- increased participation in competitive sport
