Our Vision for PE

Our vision for PE, at Deepcar St John’s CEJ School, is to ensure that all children are given the opportunity to take part in and show

progression through a variety of different sporting activities according to their needs and abilities. We believe that sport is integral to all children’s growth and feel that it plays a key part in their spiritual, moral and cultural development.   

How We Are Making Our Vision a Reality

At Deepcar St John’s, we believe it is important for children to take part in a range of both competitive and non-competitive sports. Through competition and challenge we want pupils to be able to celebrate the occasions when they are successful, whilst realising that team work and fair play has a key role to play in not only the sporting world but also their own lives. For this to be achieved, all children take part in 2 hours a week of PE lessons. As well as this, they are encouraged to take part in active sessions at lunch time through the use of imaginative play, playground leader games or timetabled football days. After school sports clubs run every day led by our PE coach. As well as these opportunities, Deepcar St John’s take part in competitions, usually after school, against other schools in the local area. This allows the children the chance to put skills learnt during lessons into practise and also gives them the opportunity to make links with other sporting clubs in the local area.  

How the Government are helping to develop PE?

To help support with the development and delivery of PE, the Department of Education and Department of Health have set up a funding programme known as ‘The PE and School Sports Grant’ (Sport Premium) This year Primary Schools are receiving a grant of £16,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil. This money is used to promote the development of PE during curriculum and after school hours. To help make the correct decisions for our school we have chosen to continue working alongside the School Sports Partnership called LINKs. This company do what their name suggests and provide links with other local schools for competitions, links with our feeder Secondary School and links with local sporting communities.
