PE & Sport

At TASS we love being active, having fun and learning new skills, whether at playtimes, in PE lessons or in after school clubs.

All of this activity takes place in our hall or wonderful grounds and we are lucky to have an all-weather pitch, a large field as well as 2 playgrounds.

Our pupils are able to partake in a huge range sporting opportunities and competitions. Within school time, each year group enjoys several sports festival at our local secondary school, King Ecgberts alongside other feeder schools.

The junior classes attend the local sports club to learn how to play squash in a purpose built environment. In addition to this our Y4 classes have a block of 18 swimming lessons at Graves Leisure Centre to ensure that all pupils achieve this important life skill. At TASS we are very proud of our sporting achievements and all of those who take part – come and have a look at our trophy cabinet!

Outside of school of the school day, all children have the opportunity to take part in a wide variety of after school clubs, such as Multi-Sports, goalball, orienteering, gymnastics, cheerleading, football, tag-rugby and many more, which change on a regular basis. As well as the traditional games and sports, this year pupils have had the opportunity to take part in some Paralympics sports, this includes: goalball, boccia and seated volley ball. This has raised awareness of the importance of inclusive sports for all abilities.

Our TASS PE & Sports Vision:

At Totley All Saints, our vision for Physical Education and Sport is that every child should have the opportunity to take part in physical activity on a regular basis and become more physically confident and competent throughout their years at our school. We believe it is an essential part of providing a truly well rounded education and it is vital for the development of a child’s social, emotional, physical and educational needs. We hope that, through the range of sporting opportunities, the children will develop a love and passion for health and physical activity ready for their next stage in their lives.

At TASS want our Sports Premium Funding to make a lasting and sustainable impact and as part of our commitment to improve PE and Sports.

  • That the impact of the Sport Premium funding impact is sustained and builds capacity for beyond 2015.Cross Country
  • That all staff have the knowledge, understanding and ability to teach high quality Physical Education (PE) lessons.
  • That all pupils receive high quality Physical Education and that lessons are progressive and build upon existing skills.
  • That all PE lessons are good or outstanding.
  • That all pupils increase their physical activity levels through lunchtime challenges, after school sports and other inter school competitions and festivals.
  • That pupils understand the importance of physical activity as part of a healthy lifestyle and that pupils are able to make healthy choices that will continue into their adult lives.
  • To ensure that there is a broad and balance PE curriculum and Sports  activities throughout the school
  • To ensure that the impact of the funding is monitored and evaluated with regards to the quality of teaching and learning and Sports provision
  • To ensure accountability for the spending of the Sport Premium funding.

What is the PE and Sport Premium?  

The Government invest £320m per year directly into primary schools with the objective of achieving self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport.  There is a long term vision that all pupils leave primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

Key performance indicators for schools are:

  • The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged five to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school.
  • The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement.
  • Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.
  • Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.
  • Increased participation in competitive sport.

PE at Totley All Saints 

The long term PE plan was created to ensure that our lessons across the year covered all the PE essentials for each year group and also made cross curricular links with other subjects. CPD for the staff is highlighted in yellow on the overview, which was organised following a recent staff audit and feedback.

SwimmingPonds Forge

The National Curriculum stipulates that swimming must be chosen as one of the areas of activity at Key Stage 2 unless pupils have completed the full teaching requirements in relation to swimming activities and water safety during Key Stage 1. This means that pupils must be taught the following:

  • to pace themselves in floating and swimming challenges related to speed, distance and personal survival
  • to swim unaided for a sustained period of time over a distance of at least 25m
  • to use recognised arm and leg actions, lying on their front and back
  • use a range of recognised strokes and personal survival skills [for example, front crawl, back crawl, breaststroke, sculling, floating and surface diving].

The DfE has indicated that the revised National Curriculum (compulsory from 2014) will include a greater emphasis on Swimming within the PE curriculum in comparison with other areas of activity such as Games, Gymnastics and Dance. It is proposed that the revised curriculum for Physical Education will set out a clear expectation that all pupils should play competitive sport, and will retain the expectation that all children learn to swim.

At Totley All Saints CE Primary School the year 4 class receive a block of 18 swimming lessons at Graves Leisure Centre.
