ST PETER’S CE PRIMARY SCHOOL

PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND SPORT

At St Peter’s CE Primary School we believe that high quality physical education is paramount to children’s learning and development across physical, social, emotional and cognitive domains. Furthermore, we believe that when Early Years and Primary physical education are taught effectively, that they create a solid foundation for a healthy lifestyle. We believe that physical education, experienced in a safe, engaging and supportive environment, is a significant factor in developing our children’s confidence and encourages creativity, as well as developing their mental capacity for problem solving and critical analysis.

As a school, we are fully committed to teaching a rigorous PE curriculum that focuses upon a developmental, inclusive and safe approach, where children’s acquisition of fundamental movement skills is of high priority. We deliver a wide range of physical activities at St. Peter’s, taught be highly skilled professionals, with the aim of engaging and inspiring all of our children. We are committed to providing pupils with the opportunity to be physically active for a prolonged period - at least two hours of well-planned, high quality physical education every week.

During the year every pupil receives a wide range of lessons encompassing games, athletics, gymnastics, outdoor education and dance lessons; swimming lessons are also incorporated into the curriculum for classes throughout Key Stage Two.

This year we have enlisted the services of an ‘outstanding’ gymnastics teacher, a highly experienced cricketer, an ex-professional tennis player turned coach and the talented, professional team from Shooting Starz to help us to deliver our high quality provision.

       

Aside from our in-school physical education, as a school, we strive to bring competitive sports to your child by entering a range of sporting competitions. We believe that competitive activity is vital so we attend competitions such as Mayors Cup (Football), Hi-5’s (Netball), swimming gala’s and the district athletics. This year we also have competitions in gymnastics, dance, skittle ball, Cricket, tag-Rugby, fencing, dodgeball and tennis. The number of sporting events we are involved in gives lots of our children opportunities to play competitive sports regardless of ability or experience.

      

To promote sports further, we provide and promote a variety of early morning and after-school clubs. This year we have worked hard to expand our extra-curricular sporting provision and offer a wide range of opportunities for the children from Reception right up to Year 6 to participate in. We offer karate, tag-rugby, dodgeball, tennis, running, dance, football, play ball, fencing, and mini-cricket and netball clubs.

Given the location of the school we are ideally placed to regularly visit Ravenscourt Park for sporting activities. Alongside Ravenscourt Park, we also take our children to Barn Elms Sport Trust for our annual Sports Day Event. We provide the children the opportunity to experience a proper sports stadium- which we hope will inspire the next Sir Mo Farah and Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill.
