Since 201 3 the Government have awarded each Primary School in England and Wales with PE Premium Funding each year. The purpose of such is to help support the delivery of PE and sport in schools. The funding is ring fenced and is a dedicated resource to increase the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision, and to increase participation in sporting activities.
At St Aidan's Church of England [Aided] Memorial Primary School we strive to promote healthy and active lifestyles and aim to provide sporting opportunities for all our pupils. To keep up to date with all of our sports news and follow our progress, go to the sports news page.
Part of our working relationship with ''Sainsbury’s School Games'' and ''Youth Sport Trust'', we are required to have sports values and a vision statement for physical activity.
We at St Aidan’s Primary School feel strongly that healthy, active children are happier and will achieve more in school life.
Our aim is for every child to achieve all of the below and on their journey embed a life long love for Sport.
- develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
- are physically active for sustained periods of time
- engage in competitive sports and activities
- lead healthy and active lives.
During all pupils time at St Aidan's Primary School they will work on all listed below in PE;
Key stage 1
Pupils should develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. They should be able to engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.
Pupils should be taught to:
§ master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities
§ participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending
§ perform dances using simple movement patterns.
Key stage 2
Pupils should continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. They should enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They should develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.
Pupils should be taught to:
§ use running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination
§ play competitive games, modified where appropriate [for example, badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders and tennis], and apply basic principles suitable for attacking and defending
§ develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance [for example, through athletics and gymnastics]
§ perform dances using a range of movement patterns
§ take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team
§ compare their performances with previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best.
