School PE and Sport

Kells Lane School vision for PE and School Sport

 At Kells Lane Primary school, we believe that high quality Physical Education and school sport play a vital role in the physical, social, emotional and intellectual development. Physical Education and sport are important in giving children the knowledge, understanding and the tools to make a positive impact on their own health and well-being. We aim to develop positive attitudes to promote long-term healthy and active lifestyles.

The PE curriculum at Kells Lane aspires to provide opportunities to build pupils’ self-confidence, self-esteem, teamwork, perseverance and leadership skills through an ability to manage themselves successfully in a variety of situations. Children will have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of sports and physical activities, carried out in a safe and supportive environment where effort and hard work, as well as success, is celebrated. During their time at Kells Lane, children will be able to take part in a wide range of physical activities including: games, dance, gymnastics, swimming and athletics.

What is the School Games Mark?

The School Games Mark is a government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and community. Schools in England are able to assess themselves across bronze, silver and gold levels.

Why should our school apply?

  • Ofsted can use the Mark award as part of their inspection framework
  • You can proudly display your award at your school
  • It is a useful development tool to aid the PE leader and Headteacher
