The PE Curriculum

Here at Shooters Grove Primary School PE is valued as an important part of every child's education. We endeavour to teach children the basic fundamentals of movement during KS1 before focusing on sporting skills and competition as they move through KS2. Every child has the opportunity to participate in two gymnastic and dance units each year as well as one outdoor and adventurous activity. These are complimented by a range of sports and games that feed into after school clubs, cluster events and level 2 competition against other schools in our locality. Our forward planning ensures that all children will have a range of sporting experiences whilst at Shooters Grove which all have pathways to competition and local clubs. 

PE and Sport Premium

In 2013 the government announced that it was to provide additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools in England – The Primary PE and Sport Premium. However, in October 2017, the Department for Education published new guidance on the doubled Primary PE and Sport Premium grant. This scheme is to be continued until at least 2020-21 and the aims for doubling the School Sports Premium can be found here:

School Swimming

In Year 4 all children attend an 18 week block of swimming with their class and teacher. In 2021, at the end of Year 6...

  • 70.5% could swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres.

How Have We Spent Our Sports Premium 2020-21?

For the 2020-21 academic year we received a total of £19,010 of Sports Premium funding. This has enabled us to employ a full time specialist sports coach, join the Forge Valley cluster of schools which promotes inclusion and ensure that we are able to travel to sporting events throughout the year. We have also invested heavily on a new climbing frame in KS1 to promote active break and lunch times for all children and a new projector in the KS2 hall that will be used to enhance indoor PE lessons.  A full breakdown of how the PE and sport premium was spent in 2020-21 can be found in the file below.

What are our aims in 2021-2022 for PE at Shooters Grove?

This academic year we are due to receive a minimum of £16,000 as part of the School Sports Premium funding. Our priorities this year are to promote physical and mental well being for all of our pupils on their return to full time education, continue to focus on giving more children an opportunity to represent Shooters Grove Primary School in both key stages and to continue the amazing PE journey that we have been on as a school in the past 6 years.
