All Saints' Primary School offers a broad and balanced PE curriculum based on the needs of the children within our school. We aim to provide a curriculum that is inspiring, motivational and inclusive for all our pupils, ensuring that we offer a healthy as well as a spiritual ethos to our school. We aim to treat every child as an individual and unlock their potential to achieve their educational and personal best. We aim to expose our children to a large range of sports in order for them to do so. We work towards providing children with the core skills needed to unlock that potential and build a community where everyone feels safe, secure and valued.
To help us achieve our ambitious PE curriculum, we work very closely with the Sainsbury's Your Games values and recognise and applaud on a weekly and termly basis, those children who demonstrate the Spirit of the Games Values - Honesty, Passion, Respect, Self-Belief, Determination and Teamwork. we also work closely with the Youth Sports Trust.
Every child throughout school has 2 hours of taught PE curriculum as well as a Wake Up Shake Up session run by our sports' leaders at the start of the day and the daily mile run every day. We use the Lancashire PE scheme which has been written with the PE curriculum leader and Lancashire PE team, however we adapt and plan in order to personalise for the needs of the children.
All children take part in leading sports' sessions within the PE lessons, taking turns on leading the warm up, cool down, smaller group games sessions and skills-based activities within the taught sessions. The children take on these challenges with gusto and it really helps to build confidence and leadership. Children are taught the importance of keeping their bodies healthy and active within PE lessons.
Children are engaged and enthusiastic about their PE learning as well as leading throughout the curriculum. Children are active and 194% of pupils engage in extra curricular sporting activities throughout the week (one child engaging in more than one activity hence above 100%). Less-engaged children are invited to various sporting activities by special invitation and sustain their engagement for at least a term. Pupil questionnaires indicate that children look forward to their PE lessons, love the daily mile and feel they have a large and varied choice of extra-curricular activities. The impact of the curriculum and engagement with our PE curriculum is clearly evidenced in our award of the Primary Kite Mark Gold Award.
