Physical Education at Compton All Saints’

At Compton we are committed to helping every one of our pupils to achieve their best. We recognise the strengths of each individual and work hard to develop these appropriately. We aim to ensure success for all and to create a healthy self-image. We feel that Physical Education plays an important role in helping us to fulfil this. In October 2016 we were awarded the School Games Silver Mark.

PE Curriculum

The PE coordinator is committed to ensuring all pupils receive high quality PE lessons delivered by confident and well trained teachers. The sports taught are wide and varied, both during the school day and as extracurricular clubs. Opportunities include tag rugby, netball, table tennis and orienteering. New sports are introduced regularly.

In years 5/6 children learn to become sports leaders and use their skills to teach younger children during playtimes.

A sports council is currently being set up with the aims of organising more sporting competitions and making more links with clubs.

As a school we feel competitive sport is important and arrange many fixtures with other local schools. Our school is part of the Kings’ cluster and meetings are held termly to plan competitions and share good practice. As part of this cluster we have attended multi skills festivals, racket skills festivals, cross-country and quadkids athletics competitions as well as football, netball and cricket tournaments. We also utilise the link with Kings’ by using their year 10 sports leaders to referee our fixtures.

Achievements in sport are recognised in weekly Celebration Assemblies. This includes sporting success achieved out of school as well as that achieved within school.

Sport is also taught as one of the activities in our curriculum enrichment programme. We fund a professional sports coach who teaches across the school in a range of activities.

Sport Premium

Through the ‘Sport Premium’ funding initiative the Government is providing £150 million over two years to support the delivery of PE and sport in primary schools. This funding will be ring fenced, and is being allocated directly to primary schools across England, providing them with dedicated resources to buy in invaluable expertise and support. Whilst primary schools will be able to determine what they believe to be the most appropriate use of this funding, it is important to recognise that groups of schools will also be free to ‘pool’ their Sports Premium funding to ensure the greatest possible impact.

Details of how we have used the Sport Premium funding at Compton can be found below:
