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.
PE Vision Statement
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 2018 – 2020.
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 Peters Elwick were successful in obtaining Gold status for the third year in a row. This year we can aim for Platinum as we have kept gold successfully for three years.
We are very lucky in school to have a new 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.
We have a School Sports Organising Crew (SSOC) that work with our Sports Coach to organise and deliver games to the Y3/4 and Y5/6 classes. The children choose the games they want to lead at the start of the week and then deliver them with the support of Mr Gibson. This helps our children towards achieving their 60 minutes of exercise a day.
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.
