Our PE and Sports Curriculum 2017/18



PE and Sports Grant


The success of Team GB in the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and the 2016 Rio games has given us an opportunity to inspire the next generation to enjoy sport. The government is determined to secure a significant and lasting legacy from the London games, and to develop children’s enjoyment of sport and physical activity from an early age. Sport should be an important part of any school. Great schools have long known that sporting excellence and participation, alongside strong cultural opportunities, go hand in hand with high academic standards. Schools, teachers and sporting bodies all agree that particular support is required for primary schools. As a result sports funding for primary school PE and sport is to continue. Additional funding has now been promised until at least 2020.

Purpose of funding

Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

Possible uses for the funding might include:

  • hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE (CEPD)
  • supporting and engaging the least active children through new or additional extra-curricular clubs (Change4life clubs)
  • paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport
  • buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE and sport
  • providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs
  • buying into a school sports partnership to enable high quality competition against local schools and also the opportunity to progress to county and national level competitive sport (CSSP)
  • running sport competitions, or increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games at Level 1 and Level 2 (Sports ambassadors – Level 1 games and entering more ‘B’ and ‘C’ teams into Level 2 competitions)
  • buying into the CSSA to further promote and enhance opportunities for competition with other local schools
  • paying for sports coaches to develop structured play on both KS1 and KS2 playgrounds during lunchtime

Chester and Wirral Rugby Tots

All children in KS1 received high quality outdoor games teaching and learning. Individual skills were observed and improvements were noticed. Fewer accidents occurred during PE lessons and during unstructured playtimes due to better spatial awareness. (See separate report from Chester and Wirral Rugby Tots for full analysis of the impact of the programme).

Cheshire Phoenix Basketball - Hoops 4 Health

All children in y5 and y6 took part in a Healthy Living Roadshow delivered by professional basketball players and coaches which incorporated awareness of what contributes to a healthy lifestyle, including smoking, alcohol and drug awareness as well as healthy eating and the benefits of exercise. The children also took part in 3 coaching sessions delivered by professional basketball players from the Cheshire Phoenix team and from this a school basketball team were entered into a competition held at The Northgate Arena. The children were crowned Hoops 4 Health Champions on the day after successfully winning all of their games. An after school basketball club was also established which was well attended each week with over 25 participants from y5 and y6.


Saughall All Saints continued its winning ways in competing in sports events organised by our SGO's at CSSP. We were not only very successful in terms of competing to a very high standard but we also had our best year yet with regards to entering 'B' and 'C' teams in to competitions and entered teams into new sporting competitions for our school, thus getting more children involved and active in a competitive environment.

Here are our sporting achievements in 2015/16:

  • Semi Finalists in the Chester Tag Rugby Competition
  • Runners up in the Primaryship Football league.
  • Winners of the Cheshire Phoenix Basketball Hoops for Health Tournament
  • Chester Schools netball ‘B’ team champions
  • Chester Schools Basketball semi-finalists.
  • Chester Schools Indoor athletics silver medalists
  • Chester and District Cross Country silver medalists
  • Chester and district Outdoor athletics – individual successes with gold, silver and bronze medalists
  • Chester Schools Quad athletics silver medalists
  • Year 1 Mini Kickers Chester Schools runners up.

  • Individual medalist in the Chester Schools swimming gala
  • Cheshire Schools Award for outstanding Achievement in Sport.


A Change4life club (cheerleading and dance) was set up and was regularly attended each week by over 20 girls in y3,4,5,6. These girls not only participated each week in a physical activity which was a non-competitive environment but they also performed at the opening of the Cheshire County Indoor athletics finals at The Northgate Arena. This was a massive opportunity for these girls and certainly raised levels of confidence, self-belief and self-esteem.


In previous years some of our year 6 non-swimmers have attended a free week of intensive swimming lessons. The children have thoroughly enjoyed the experience and it was amazing to see the difference in their confidence, ability and enjoyment in the water in just a week. However, I am pleased to be able to say that this year none of our children needed to attend these additional swimming sessions as all of the children passed the End of KS2 swimming test.


Four children attended the playground leaders training and have delivered excellent active play all year on our Infant playground each lunchtime. The infant children have thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the organised games and it has developed not only the confidence of the Playground Leaders but it has also developed the younger children's independent play.


After attending the Young Ambassador Peer leaders training session at UCLAN run by the YST eight of our y6 children have proven to be invaluable sports ambassadors for our school. They have not only led sporting teams extremely well throughout the year, but have also blogged about our successes on the Sainsbury's games website, compiled sports reports for assemblies and also organised intra school sporting competitions for each year group to take part in during playtimes and lunchtimes. They have actively helped to further raise the profile of PE and sport at Saughall All Saints.

We were also awarded the National recognition award of the Gold Games kitemark for the second year in succession for our continued commitment to PE and sports throughout the whole school.

In addition to the Gold Kitemark we also received the Cheshire Schools Achievement Award for the second year in succession for our outstanding contribution and achievement in Sport.

The school also held its first ever sports presentation evening in July 2016 which saw each child who had represented a school team celebrated for their hard work and commitment to school sport. Trophies were presented to the player of the year for each school team and also to the most improved sports person, sporting personality of the year and a special recognition award for outstanding contribution to school sport.


The school has entered and competed well in all of the events that the CSSA have organised. Particular successes have been in the cross country where we are the current Chester Schools Cross Country silver medalists narrowly missing out( to a very strong Kings School team) on retaining our title (28 schools and over 500 participants)


A specialist sports coach has worked all year with each of our KS2 classes focusing on a variety of different games which has had a positive impact on raising the attainment of our children in PE. It has also been an excellent opportunity for our classroom teachers to observe excellent teaching and learning with regards to their own CPD.

A specialist dance teacher has worked with each class in the school (including FS2). This has had a massive impact in inspiring teachers to teach dance effectively and also in raising the profile of dance throughout the school. The end of year 6 summer production was a huge success and featured choreographed routines by our dance teacher.


Athletics vests have been purchased and worn by our winning athletics team. Sporting equipment has also been purchased to enhance our teaching and learning during both curricular and extra-curricular time.
