PE (Physical Education)
During Lockdown 2020 our school was awarded for providing outstanding support to our children to ensure they were active and still got the opportunity to get involved in virtual sporting events.
I am delighted to announce that we have received The Platinum School Sports Mark for the outstanding opportunities that we provide for our children.
Here at Lostock Gralam C of E Primary School we pride ourselves on the quality of our PE provision. Our high quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. Our PE curriculum provides ample opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Our newly installed all-weather Golden Mile track encourages this along with the support of our PE Monitors, Health Ambassadors, Phys Kids leaders, House Team Captains, Mid-Day Assistants and Playground Buddies.
Our PE lessons are delivered by class teachers and/or our sports coach Mr Ault. Also our KS1 children are currently receiving gymnastics lessons from Beth Tweddle Gymnastics and our KS2 children are receiving cricket coaching from the Cheshire Cricket Board.
We provide a curriculum which meets the needs of the national curriculum to ensure that all pupils:
- develop competence to excel in a broad range of phsical activities
- are physically active for sustained periods of time
- engage in competitive sports and activities
- lead healthy, active lives
Please check our school Twitter account for updates on what we have been doing in PE. It is also where we share our sporting achievements that take place both in and out of school. Through Pupil Voice, our children have the opportunity to let us know what they think about PE in school. 'We love our gymnastics lessons every week and I even go to the after-school club', I have loved going to the Judo breakfast-club as I have got to dress like a 'real martial arts person' and I have learnt lots of great moves', 'We love PE with Mr Ault as he alwasy encourages us to do our best and makes our lessons fun. He shows me how to improve and I know I am getting better at passing the ball', 'I like when we go on the Golden Mile Track as I can beat my score and I like the fresh air'.
We love working with Beth Tweddle Gymnastics
