At All Saints we believe that physical education and activity are vital in children’s development; both physical and mental.
We aspire for All Saints pupils to be happy, healthy children who are confident in their own physical literacy. There is a focus on transferable multi-abilities including personal skills, social skills and creativity which support both our school’s vision and learning powers.
Through PE, our children develop sportsmanship and know that they can make a difference in their own and others’ lives. We want our children to leave school understanding what it means to be healthy, and to be motivated to lead healthy and active lives.
Through our curriculum and extra-curricular activities, children at All Saints are introduced to a wide variety of sports and opportunities to be active. Our children receive two hours of PE per week where they learn and develop fundamental movement skills at their own rate and apply these in games. Children in Years 3-5 receive one term of swimming per year at Westcroft Leisure Centre, with support for those who have not met the requirement for the end of KS2 by the end of Year 5. We also provide additional opportunities to remain active across the curriculum and school day for example through The Daily Mile and Teach Active.
At All Saints we also aim to develop a healthy mindset to competition. Children develop an understanding of differing levels of competition and have opportunities to take part in intra and inter-school competitions. Individual and team achievements are celebrated through assemblies and our sports newsletter. We have received the Gold School Games Mark for the last three years in celebration of our wide sports and games offer which is supported by the Sutton Schools Sports Partnership. We welcome and value parental support and involvement at events in which their children take part.
