Here at Buglawton Primary School, we promote sport and P.E.and encourage all pupils to be active. Our curriculum closely follows the National Curriculum and is delivered by professional sports company, Bee Active. We feel that our children benefit greatly from receiving their P.E. from professional coaches who can deliver bespoke and engaging sessions.
Buglawton Primary School understands the importance of Physical Education in the health and well-being of its children. Every class in school partakes in our Buglawton Daily Mile every day which encourages exercise and well-being. As a subject, PE is extremely important to us at Buglawton and this is evident throughout our curriculum and our extra-curricular activities. We feel that it promotes focus, attitude, and achievement.
The Sports Premium funding allows us to develop the delivery of core physical skills to all of the children at Buglawton. Please see the sports funding section of the website to see how we plan to implement the budget.
Buglawton offers a wealth of sporting opportunities both in the curriculum, including swimming, and through extra-curricular clubs and inter-school competitions.
Buglawton prides itself on participating in as many sports competitions as we can throughout the year despite being a small school compared to others in the area.
Swimming is an important skill and can encourage a healthy and active lifestyle. In accordance with the National Curriculum, schools must provide swimming instruction either in Key Stage 1 or Key Stage 2.
The programme of study for PE sets out the expectation that pupils should be taught to:
- swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
- use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]
- perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations
In 2019-20, we were unable to carry out our full programme of swimming due to COVID-19 restrictions.
