Our PE and School Sport Journey
Shardlow Primary School is a small school with a huge passion for PE and school sport We are dedicated to developing sport and PE in our school and are proud of the inroads we have made since 2012. The attitude in school around that time was that we did not enter sporting competition as we would not win or place, so what was the point. A belief echoed by pupils, staff and parents. This is something we have worked hard to reverse over the last 5 years. We now take part in three levels of sport at Shardlow; intra school, inter school and county final events, alongside these we also take all of our children to festival events. The love of sport through school is embedded in a number of ways including strong emphasis on outstanding teaching of PE, mini-leaders who work hard to promote school sport, strong emphasis on swimming to ensure that all KS2 swim all year round, the focus on girl’s engagement in school sport through This Girl Can Ambassadors, and closely monitored coverage of objectives linked to the curriculum. Now that all children are involved and enthused by school sport and physical activity we are able to send 100% of children to events each academic year and target those less active children to ensure health and fitness for all. The impact on sport and physical education at our school has been huge, and we see it as a key strength and something that we work hard to continue to develop and grow.
