Crab Lane Primary School

'Where we belong, aspire and succeed'

At Crab Lane Primary School, our vision for Physical Education is that every child has the opportunity to take part in physical activity on a regular basis and become more physically confident and competent. Through all the sporting opportunities and physical activities we offer, children will develop a love and passion for sport and physical activity and continue this into their adult lives. We strive to ensure our P.E curriculum is broad and balanced, throughout the children’s time at Crab Lane. We firmly believe the P.E curriculum should be more than just the physical aspect. Therefore our curriculum and skills coverage focuses on 4 key themes: Physical me, Thinking me, Healthy me and Social me. These will be evidenced on the curriculum overviews.

At Crab Lane, we strive to give as many children as possible the opportunity to take part in sports competitions both during school time and also by representing the school at local events. We offer lunchtime activity clubs 5 days a week. In addition, we strive for each and every child to swim 25 metres independently and safely by the end of Key Stage 2. Every child competes in an annual School Games, where Sports Leaders support the planning, running and evaluation of the day.

We offer children the opportunity to lead sporting activities, organise games and events and learn to lead by example. By emphasising leadership, we aim for the children to learn the importance of communication, organisation, teamwork, resilience, perseverance and a respect for rules. Last year, we invested in a new running track on our school grounds, and we also encourage all classes to complete an Active Mile on the days that PE is not taught, thereby encouraging children to be as active as possible during the school day.

We are very proud of our School Games Silver Award!
