PE & Sports
At Belmore we carry out a diverse range of physical activities within our curriculum. Our aim is to inspire all children to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physical activities.
We encourage children to become physically confident in a way which supports their health, fitness, and develops their agility, balance and coordination, both individually and with others.
We compete and engage in a wide range of physical activities across the year which helps to build on a child's character and embed values such as fairness, teamwork and respect.
With the help of the children, parents and staff, I am delighted to announce that we received the Gold Award for the School Games Mark for 2017/2018. 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. Schools are graded against set criteria in relationship to participation, competition, the workforce and clubs.
Our PE curriculum can be found on the attachment below. For information on our Sports Premium please view the information below.
At Belmore Primary School, we believe that physical education and sports plays an important role in a child's development, with the potential to change young people's lives for the better. We welcomed the Government's announcement in June 2013 to provide additional funding for 2 years to improve the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. We have used this funding to develop the quality of PE lessons across the school, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people.
We are currently a part of the SHSSN (South Hillingdon School Sports Network) which enables us to have weekly access to a PE specialist teacher and the opportunity to take part in inter school, as well as intra school, competitions. We also have 'taster' sessions arranged for a range of different sports with local club links. We also have access to the SHSSN sporting events throughout the year for students of all abilities. This culminates in a festival of sports for students in Years 2 & 4. We have also invested in CPD for our staff, this included bespoke whole school PE development and individual courses. We have a full time PE teacher who delivers a significant proportion of the PE curriculum to students throughout the school.
