PE Funding Report

At St Columba’s Roman Catholic Primary, we provide a physical education programme of games, gymnastics, swimming, dance and athletics based lessons which are in line with the National Curriculum. This enables each child to develop their movement, skill, balance and co-ordination as well as self confidence in the subject area. The programme provides a progressive plan throughout each year and in subsequent years of a child’s primary education. Each child is given the opportunity to develop their competitive skills by engaging in both inter and intra school competitions.

We currently offer at KS1 and KS2 an extensive extra-curricular sports programme that provides the opportunity for children to further develop their knowledge, understanding and skills in a range of sporting areas. We additionally provide a healthy lifestyle programme which creates a greater awareness of issues such as the need for exercise, health living, tackling obesity and healthy eating.

Our future focus is to further develop the teaching of PE and to continue to deliver a broad and balanced programme, as well as extending the out of hours learning opportunities which will be linked to the wider curriculum in order to enhance learning for all participants.
