It is our intent at All Saints Primary to equip all children, irrespective of their disadvantage or SEND, with the knowledge, skills, attitudes and aspirations to enable them to contribute and live an active life as well as teach children life skills that will positively impact on their future. We aim to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical activities. We want to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others, as part of a team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values.
Our school vision of nurturing hearts; inspiring minds is at the heart of each P.E. lesson.
All our children have their hearts nurtured through the support they receive as well as the opportunities to learn how to cope when they don’t win. An important life lesson. Learning champions are developed so that children have the skills and confidence to support their peers for example in gymnastics when completing rolls and balances. We also have lots of ‘active’ interventions to ensure ALL our children live a more active lifestyle as in turn, we recognise the huge benefits this has on their mental health. For example power up club, forest schools and gardening all provide an alternative active group for those children who don’t like generic sports like football.
Children’s minds are inspired through the leadership opportunities that are promoted and supported through P.E. like leading warm up’s, umpiring games and the sport challenges each play times that Play Leaders have created.
Likewise, we have passionate staff and inspiring visitors who inspire our children to be sporty and live an active lifestyle. Building a positive mind-set is one of the key aims throughout each lesson.
Pupils at All Saints Primary participate in at least two hours of high quality PE and sporting activities per week. Our PE programme incorporates a variety of sports to ensure all children develop the confidence, tolerance and the appreciation of their own and others’ strengths and weaknesses. We provide opportunities for all children to engage in extra-curricular activities before, during and after school, in addition to competitive sporting events. This is an inclusive approach, which endeavours to encourage not only physical development but also well-being.
Our curriculum aims to improve the wellbeing and fitness of all children at All Saints Primary, not only through the sporting skills taught, but through the underpinning values and disciplines PE promotes. Within our lessons, children are taught about self-discipline and that to be successful you need to take ownership and responsibility of their own health and fitness. Our impact is therefore to motivate children to utilise these underpinning skills in an independent and effective way in order to live happy and healthy lives.
