St Peter’s Primary School Sport
St Peter’s Primary school is dedicated to raising standards of PE across the school.
We are a Sainsbury’s School Games Bronze Medalist and will be applying for the silver medal in the next application round (Spring/Summer 2018)
Our PE Curriculum Vision and Strategy
Research has proven a clear link between the health and wellbeing of students and their educational outcomes and this is at the forefront of our PE programme.
At St Peter’s C.E. Primary School we are committed to providing our pupils with up to 2 hours of high quality P.E. each week. All pupils are involved in our physical exercise program during curriculum time, which includes a variety of activities designed to challenge and inspire the children. The curriculum map ( see below) includes activities such as athletics, gymnastics, dance, invasion games, basketball, hockey, track and field events and swimming. We strongly believe that Physical Education is an important part of the curriculum as it helps develop pupils’ team work skills, physical ability and confidence, developing their capacity to use these skills to perform a range of activities.
As well as these curriculum activities, St Peter’s Primary School provides every child with the opportunity to take part in enrichment clubs after school, covering a wide range of sports.
Again, research has shown that participation in extra-curricular activities also has a positive effect on attainment and every child is offered the opportunity to join an enrichment club.
Our P.E. curriculum in action
Strong links, coupled with the continued hard work and effort invested in P.E. at St. Peter’s , allow the school to consistently improve the level and quality of sport on offer each year, both within the school day and at after school clubs.

Sport Premium Funding
In April 2015, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for Physical Education (PE) and sport. This funding is to be used to improve the quality and range of sport in schools. Schools are to decide how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing pupil participation in P.E.
Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that primary age children undertake at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day in school.
From September 2017-18 Sports Premium grant funding will double (£16000 annual lump sum plus £10 per head). This announcement is welcome news and will help St. Peter’s CE Primary School develop our PE strategy further.
At St Peter’s C.E. Primary school we use this funding to support the further challenging and inspiring of pupils against the following key indicators;
Key indicator 1; providing specialist P.E. coaches; a. raising the confidence, knowledge, skills and competence levels of both teaching staff and pupils during PE curriculum time and b. broadening the range of sports and activities offered to children.
Key indicator 2; providing a wide range of sporting after school clubs for the children
Key indicator 3; developing our range of PE equipment and resources
Key indicator 4; increasing participation in competitive sports, within and across schools
Key indicator 5; increasing engagement with organised physical activity across the lunch time period
Key indicator 6; developing skills of effective teamwork; respect, resilience, perseverance and fair play
