Sports at All Saints'
At All Saints’ we help children achieve the fundamental movement skills needed to be successful in PE and sports, and develop and life-long love of being active. These skills of agility, balance and co-ordination are taught through REAL PE lessons. Alongside this class teaching, we offer a variety of clubs that children can take part in as part of our extracurricular school provision; developing and building skills in football, boccia, cricket, athletics, running, netball, gymnastics, dance, skipping, hockey and table tennis.
We have employed a sports coach to help deliver expertise coaching in a range of sports, provide children with extra opportunities to get active and keep healthy, and develop children’s gross motor skills through targeted small group work.
To help the children lead active lives, all the children take part in weekly school fitness activities, KS2 take part in HIIT classes and active lessons.
This year, we have introduced personal challenges, allowing the children to compete against themselves in their lunchtimes, build perseverance and to continue to develop their fundamental skills.
Throughout the year, we will be hosting a number of intra-school competitions led by our Sports Leaders.
We have a successful annual school sports day to which parents are invited. Our playground, with our painted area, also offers challenges to develop agility skills.
Sports Premium Funding
What is the Sports Premium?
The government is providing funding of £150 million per annum to provide new and substantial primary school sports funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media, and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school Headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
Purpose of the funding
All schools have to spend the sports funding on improving their provision of PE and sports, but there is the freedom to choose how we do it. At All Saints' School, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. In addition, we believe that an innovative and varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities positively influence the concentration, attitude, and academic achievement of all children.
