Sports welcome

At Grangetown we are keen to give children the opportunity to learn and develop their skills in a range of different sporting activities. Our P.E. lessons are mainly delivered by a Qualified Physical Education teacher, Mr Devereux. By using a dedicated Physical Education teacher we feel we are providing a very high quality of instruction to all ages.

Assessments are completed after every half term by Mr Devereux and shared with the class teachers. This allows staff to monitor the progress children are making and the skills they are acquiring.

Our after sport school club program runs daily from 3.15-4.15 and are acccessable to all children in the school.

We also provide opportunities for our children to compete against other schools through competitions arranged by the School Sports Partnership.

In EYFS our aim is to provide children with Physical Literacy. Physical Literacy is the mastering of fundamental movement skills and fundamental sport skills that permit a child to read their environment and make appropriate decisions, allowing them to move confidently and with control in a wide range of physical activity situations. It supports long-term participation and performance to the best of one’s ability.

Children should learn fundamental movement skills and fundamental sport skills in each of the four basic environments:

• On the ground – as the basis for most games, sports, dance and physical activities.

• In the water – as the basis for all aquatic activities.

• On snow and ice – as the basis for all winter sliding activities.

• In the air – basis for gymnastics, diving and other aerial activities.

In KS1 and KS2 these skills are further developed and put into game situations with more competition (both against self and against others) being applied.

All children in Y3 get the opportunity to go swimming at Eston Baths, taught by qualified swimming instructors
