Sports Welcome

Here at Grangetown Primary we are keen to give all children the opportunity to learn and develop their skills in a range of different sporting activities. Our P.E. lessons are delivered by our qualified CIMSPA Coach Miss McCarthy. Alongside this, we welcome a variety of external sports providers to enhance and enrich our P.E Curriculum. By using a dedicated coach we feel we are providing very high quality of instruction to all ages.

Assessments are completed after every half term by Miss McCarthy and shared with the class teachers allowing staff to monitor the progress children are making and the skills they are acquiring.

Our After School Club Program runs across the course of the week from 3.15pm-4.15pm providing extra opportunities for children to develop a variety of skills both physically and mentally. 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 developed further and put into game situations with more competition (both against themselves and against others) being applied.

All children in the school get the opportunity to go swimming, where sessions are taught by qualified swimming instructors.
