Pillars of PE Education

Motor Competence – knowledge of the range of movements that become increasingly sport and physical activity specific.

Rules, Strategies and Tactics – knowledge of the conventions of participation in different sports and physical activities.

Healthy Participation – knowledge of safe and effective participation.

School Games Mark

We are delighted to announce that we have achieved ‘Platinum’ status in the School Games Mark by creating positive experiences and opportunities with PE lessons and beyond to support the development of our young people. This is through the dedication of the staff and pupils.

Our PE and sport aspires to build self – esteem, teamwork and leadership skills, enabling each child to be the best they can be by:

  • Providing high quality equal opportunities and outcomes for all.
  • Encouraging community involvement
  • Promoting active participation and competition
  • Raising achievement and supporting excellence

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

Youth Sports Trust

The Federation 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 Hart Primary. 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. 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.

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.

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 childrens’ 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.
