At St. Anne's Catholic Primary School, PE forms an integral part of our curriculum, providing all of the children with a chance to develop, improve and most importantly enjoy all aspects of PE. We endeavour to support all pupils developing a love of physical activity which they will take with them into adulthood. We develop the children's understanding of leading a healthy lifestyle, including physical health and a healthy mind. PE lessons are inclusive and enable all children to develop skills and knowledge across a broad range of physical activities. Our Long Term Map ensures a wide range of physical activities are covered so pupils can apply and develop their knowledge, skills and understanding across a range of sports, as well as opportunities to communicate, collaborate and compete against each other. We aim to provide opportunities throughout the curriculum to compare and evaluate their performance, as well as set goals to improve and achieve their personal best. Skill progression is important to our learners to develop knowledge and skills each year. St. Anne's aims to allow pupils to have the opportunity to compete in a range of sports at inter and intra school levels. Our aim is that sport, fitness and a healthy lifestyle holds a high profile throughout the school. 


Our Curriculum ensures knowledge and skills in PE are progressive throughout the whole school, the National Curriculum objectives are met and that children have challenging and enjoyable learning through a range of sports. We aim to embed Active Learning across the entire curriculum, as well as during break times with OPAL and Year 6 Playground Sport Leaders. Our Amaven termly assessments focus on speed, agility, object and body control, flexibility and strength, which allows us to target those children who are working above, at or below the expected standard. We work with a variety of companies to offer what we believe are varied, in-depth curriculum opportunities. The school offers a wide variety of extra-curricular clubs to ensure the children can apply their skills and learn in different situations; clubs led by NAR Sports include: jujitsu, archery, dodgeball and skateboarding. The use of Sports Funding is planned carefully so that all pupils benefit and it has a positive impact across the whole school. Children are taught about leading healthy, active lifestyles across the curriculum, as well as looking after our Mental Health. Year 6 pupils undertake a course to become Mental Health First Aiders. 

At Key Stage One, pupils develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. Children learn to engage in competitive sport (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.

At Key Stage Two, pupils continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. Children enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other across a wide range of sports. They develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success. All pupils will also be given the opportunity to learn how to swim confidently over 25metres, learn different strokes and perform safe self-rescue. 

Our school is actively involved in many county, intra-school and inter-school sporting activities, including participation festivals and competitions. This includes Crewe Alexander Under 11's Football, Infant Football, Tag Rugby, Netball, Games for All and Athletics. We pride ourselves on the behaviour and attitudes of our teams who always strive to do their best while offering great examples of sportsmanship. We are part of the CNSSP (Crewe & Nantwich Schools Sports Partnership) and work closely with them to provide as many sport opportunities to our children as possible.


The impact and measure of this is to ensure children understand the benefits of leading healthy, active lives on both physical and mental health, with the aim this continues through to adulthood. We aim for all children to have a positive and engaged attitude towards physical activity and to have improved fitness levels, including running and jumping, throwing and catching, flexibility, strength, control, agility, co-ordination and balance. St. Anne's has achieved the Platinum School Games Mark Award for the Years 2023/2024-2024/2025, which demonstrates the commitment we give to PE and Sport.
