School Vision

Our PE Vision

To develop knowledge and understanding of religion, religious beliefs and practices, tradition and culture, promoting pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and to prepare all pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of the present and the future. To become courageous advocates for themselves and others.

We pride ourselves in giving children the opportunity to participate in as many sporting events and festivals as we can at St Peters Elwick Primary School. Have a look below at some of our achievements and pictures of us participating in lots of different sporting events.

Statement for SEND

St. Peter’s Elwick Cof E Primary School promotes a curriculum that puts all pupils, regardless of their needs, at the heart of what we do. By building mutual respect, we accept others for their differences believing that everyone is special and everyone has something to offer. Our inclusive and enriching curriculum, written for all children, provides pupils with meaningful and aspirational experiences as well as promoting personal growth for life-long learning. When the curriculum needs adapting, to suit the needs of individual children, appropriate modifications are made by the class teacher with support of the SENDCo and the Curriculum Subject Lead.

Youth Sports Trust

The school has been externally assessed by a Youth Sports Trust Development Manager and deemed to be Gold Standard. The PE lead and Sports Coach met with the assessor at St Peters Elwick. Through an interview they were able to demonstrate the schools’ achievements along with the assessor meeting and having a tour of the school and PE achievements by the SSOC crew. This means that the school has obtained the highest level possible for the award and this is valid for two years 2022– 2024.

What is the Award? 

The Youth Sport Trust Quality Mark is online self-review tool which provides schools with a nationally recognised badge of excellence for PE and school sport. The tool supports schools to audit their PE provision and identify priorities for their development plan. 

The tool has been aligned to Ofsted guidance supporting the PE and Sport Premium and comprises a series of statements, where you can select your level of provision in these areas: 

· Overall vision for PE, physical activity and school sport 

· Quality of PE

· Quality of school sport 

· Quality of physical activity 

· Use of PE, physical activity and sport as a catalyst for wider learning. 

Even though the award is a self-review tool, both schools were then inspected by a Youth Sports Trust Development Manager. It gave the school the chance to show all of the amazing work our schools do from Nursery to Year 6 and show what a fantastic job we are all doing! We are very proud of the staff, children and parents for their dedication and support of our PE curriculum and in achieving the Gold Youth Sports Trust Quality Mark.

School Games Mark

The School Games Mark is a government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Participating in this process allows schools to evaluate their PE provision and assists them in developing an action plan for future progress. St. Peter’s Elwick were successful in obtaining Gold status for the fourth year in a row. This year we can aim for Platinum as we have kept gold successfully for four years.

Sports Coach

We are very lucky in school to have a sports coach, Mr Gibson. We used some of our Sports Premium fund in order to extend our PE provision. Mr Gibson works closely with the teachers to support in lessons and takes our children to sporting events and festivals. He also helps run after school clubs so that we can have a wider range of after school sports in school.

SSOC (School Sports Organising Crew)

Each year we appoint an SSOC crew for our school. These children support others within school during lunchtimes to play organised games and activities to support with children’s’ teamwork, physical activity (keeping active for 60min a day) and enjoyment of physical activity. The SSOC actively engage pupils within physical opportunities through their leadership roles. 

After School Clubs

We have a range of after school sports clubs that are available to our pupils including; multi skills, football and dodgeball. More information can be found on our After School Clubs page.

JAPP (Junior Accelerated Performance Programme) 

A select number of children within Y5/6 access JAPP at our local Senior School. They are chosen for their aptitude for PE and sportsmanship. They have the opportunity to develop their PE skills further by attending termly sporting events at High Tunstall. They also get to work with other JAPP pupils from local primary schools.
