The Grange Primary School Awarded Gold Mark for continued excellence in PE and Sport

The Grange Primary School is proud to announce that we have been awarded the prestigious Gold Mark from the Youth Sport Trust for another consecutive year! This recognition underscores our unwavering commitment to delivering high-quality physical education, physical activity and school sport.

Aligned with Ofsted guidance and supporting the PE and Sport Premium, the Gold Mark is awarded based on comprehensive benchmarking statements. These evaluate our vision for PE, the quality of our PE curriculum, school sports, physical activities, and the use of PE as a catalyst for wider learning.

At The Grange Primary School, we believe that every child deserves access to a high-quality PE curriculum, integral to our overall educational offering. Our dedication to physical education stems from its numerous benefits, including improved physical fitness, emotional wellbeing, and promotion of essential life skills.

Key Aspects of Our PE Curriculum:

1. Physical Literacy: Our curriculum ensures that all pupils develop the fundamental knowledge, understanding, and skills needed to excel in various physical activities. We provide a broad and balanced curriculum with diverse opportunities for all pupils.

2. Healthy and Active Lifestyles: By promoting regular physical activity, we help our children adopt healthy lifestyles, improving emotional wellbeing, reducing challenging behaviour, and increasing attendance.

3. Inclusive Participation: Our inclusive approach ensures that pupils of all abilities can access a wide range of activities, encouraging sustained physical activity and helping them lead healthy, active lives.

4. Competitive Sports: We inspire pupils to succeed in competitive sports and other physically demanding activities. We offer numerous opportunities for participation in teams, both within and beyond the curriculum.

5. Holistic Development: PE at The Grange Primary School fosters not only physical development but also self-expression, fair play, respect, decision-making, analysis, teamwork, and communication skills.

The Impact of High-Quality PE:

The benefits of a high-quality PE curriculum are extensive. Regular participation in sport and physical activity can improve physical fitness, promote overall health, instil self-discipline, develop skills and confidence, and foster lifelong learning skills.

Our commitment to maintaining the Gold standard reflects our dedication to using PE, physical activity, and sport as tools for broader educational success. We believe in the power of physical education to enhance physical, cognitive, and social skills, helping our pupils grow into well-rounded individuals.
