At All Saints’ we use the Real PE scheme; a unique, child centred approach that develops the key abilities children need to be successful within PE and sport, as well as the broader curriculum. Lessons centre around six key areas: Creative, Cognitive, Health and Fitness, Personal, Physical and Social. The scheme is fully aligned to the national curriculum and focuses on the development of agility, balance and coordination, as well as healthy competition and cooperation.
The curriculum encourages creativity, collaboration and effort whilst simultaneously promoting the physical and social development every child through group, partnered and paired learning. Children are taught the conventions of fair play, honest competition and good sporting behaviour as individual participants, team members and spectators. We also take part in the ‘Daily Mile’ to help meet the government target of all children being physically active for at least 60 minutes a day.
We participate in a swimming programme in year three and four, which provides children with the necessary skills for water confidence, water safety and specific stroke technique. Our programme aims to have every child swimming confidently by the end of Year 4, with the target of 25 metres as an ideal. Those who join the school later, or who cannot swim 25m, will have another opportunity to swim before the end of Year 6.
We also offer a range of after-school clubs to further promote a love of sport and being active. These are geared towards competitive performance, increasing activity levels and increasing childhood experiences with sport. We actively seek out and engage with our local community, forging links and relationships between children and clubs to continue their sporting ambitions outside of school hours.
