Our Vision for PE, Healthy Active Lifestyles (HAL) and School Sport (SS)
At Beeston Primary School we recognise the importance of an inspiring PE curriculum which promotes physical health and fitness, participation and a healthy lifestyle. The intent of our PE curriculum adheres to the aims of the National Curriculum ensuring that we provide opportunities for all pupils to become physically confident and supporting them to succeed in developing their own health, fitness and well-being. Our PE curriculum encourages children to succeed in physical activities, cooperate and collaborate with others and embed fairness and respect as well as evaluate and improve their performance. We aim to deliver high quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical activities.
Pupils at Beeston Primary participate in weekly high quality PE and sporting activities. Through the use of Real PE children are taught through a broad, holistic approach to physical activity where the aim is to develop the ‘whole child’. The scheme provides an engaging curriculum which implements a learning journey developing personal, social, emotional, health and fitness, cognitive and creative abilities. Our partnership with the Premier Stars coaches teaches children to value an inclusive STEP approach (space, task, equipment, and people) to PE. Children are encouraged to take leadership of their learning and assess activity levels throughout the lesson. We also provide a range of opportunities for children to engage in extracurricular activities during and after school including football, multi-skills, dodgeball and karate. This is an inclusive approach which endeavours to encourage not only physical development but also well-being.
Our curriculum aims to motivate children to participate in a variety of sporting activities through quality teaching that is engaging and fun. Pupils are taught to be physically successful and how to take responsibility for their own health, fitness and well-being. Our impact is to continue to provide children with the tools needed to succeed in physical activity in order to live happy and healthy lives.

Differences made to participation and attainment
All young people should have the opportunity to live healthy and active lives. A positive experience of sport and physical activity at a young age can build a lifetime habit of participation and is central to meeting the government’s ambitions for a world-class education system.
Physical activity has numerous benefits for children and young people’s physical health, as well as their mental wellbeing (increasing self-esteem and emotional wellbeing and lowering anxiety and depression), and children who are physically active are happier, more resilient and more trusting of their peers. Ensuring that pupils have access to sufficient daily activity can also have wider benefits for pupils and schools, improving behaviour as well as enhancing academic achievement.
The School Sport and Activity Action Plan set out government’s commitment to ensuring that children and young people have access to at least 60 minutes of sport and physical activity per day, with a recommendation of 30 minutes of this delivered during the school day (in line with the Chief Medical Officers guidelines which recommend an average of at least 60 minutes per day across the week).
The PE and sport premium can help primary schools to achieve this aim, providing primary schools with £320m of government funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, physical activity and sport offered through their core budgets. It is allocated directly to schools so they have the flexibility to use it in the way that works best for their pupils. The PE and sport premium survey highlighted the significant impact which PE and Sport has had in many primary schools across England. (DfE, 2020)
The sports coach enabled all children to have access to sporting activities that they may not have had the opportunity to be part of outside of school. The children were excited and engaged during their weekly session with the coach. Ensuring that teaching staff were part of these sessions means that they will be able to carry on good practice when teaching their own P.E lessons.
Real P.E scheme
Real P.E is a progressive scheme, based on learning and applying fundamental movement skills. The scheme is proven to enable children to ‘create positive relationships with physical activity for life’. The scheme is embedded within the curriculum and many of the units link to the fundamental British Values and SMSC.
Mini Me Yoga
Mini Me Yoga is a series of postures/poses/movements that one holds to improve strength, flexibility, balance and relaxation. Through participation we are encouraging positive emotions, a wider thought process, improvements to creativity and academic achievement.
Through a partnership with Leeds United’s Premier Stars we are offering exciting extra-curricular activities, Upper and Lower KS2 sports coaching, CPD for all staff and ways to implement a whole school assessment tool.
Pupils and staff were asked to complete a questionnaire on the impact of Physical Education within school.
‘I enjoy taking part in yoga sessions because it helps me to focus’.
‘The games we play are so fun and I now know how to evade a defender!’
‘Mini Me Yoga is an excellent tool to have in the classroom to improve positive relationships and use as a calming strategy’.
‘I have found since working alongside Premier Stars in P.E lessons that the children are more excited and engaged and can communicate what they have learnt during the lesson and I have learnt valuable skills for future use.’
