Sports Premium Grant

Our vision for PE, at Mallard Primary School, is to ensure that all children are given the opportunity to take part in and show progression through a variety of different sporting activities. We believe that sport is integral to all children’s growth and feel that it plays a key part in their spiritual, moral and cultural development.

At Mallard, we believe it is important for children to take part in a range of both competitive and non-competitive sports. Through competition and challenge, we want pupils to be able to celebrate the occasions when they are successful, whilst realising that team work and fair play has a key role to play in not only the sporting world but also their own lives.

For this to be achieved, all children take part in 2 hours a week of PE lessons. As well as this, they are encouraged to take part in active sessions at lunch time through the use of: imaginative play, play-ground leader games or organised zones run by lunchtime staff. After school, we always provide a range of sporting clubs which cater for key stage one and key stage two.

As well as these opportunities, Mallard provide opportunities to take part in festivals and competitions, which often take place out of school hours, against other schools in the local area. Taking part in festivals and competitions allows children the chance to put skills learnt during lessons into practise and also gives them the opportunity to make links with other sporting clubs in the local area.
