Physical Education

Our Vision for Physical Education

Along with, the Association for Physical Education, at St Leonard's we believe in the value of high quality physical education, physical activity and participation in school sport. Each has an enormous impact on health and emotional well-being as well as significantly impacting on whole school improvement. We aim to ensure that:

  • The health and emotional well-being of all our pupils is improved.
  • Education is an entitlement and therefore the impact of physical education across the curriculum is valued and recognised.
  • Leadership by all: headteacher, governors, subject leader and class teachers promote and celebrate the value of physical activity and school sport.
  • Physical education is 'Powerful Education' as we support and recognise the impact it has on whole school development, making a real difference to the lives of our pupils and preparing them for an ever changing world. 

We believe these aims will be fulfilled by implementation of the National Curriculum and specifically the 2020 (updated) Lancashire Scheme for PE.

PE Curriculum Overview

PE and Sports Premium

The Government provides additional funding for physical education (PE) and sport in schools.

This funding is to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision resulting in increased numbers of pupils developing healthy life styles, raising their performance levels and engaging in PE and sport.

We are very proud of the extensive PE and sporting opportunities we are able to provide our pupils via this extra funding.

The link below details how St Leonard's have allocated this funding and the impact it has had.

Well done to the Year 6 athletics team who represented Ribble Valley Schools at the Regional Sports Hall Athletics Finals in Blackpool. Mrs Chambers is an extremely proud coach. 

Gold Sport Award

We were delighted to welcome Stacey Roscoe, from the Hyndburn and Ribble Valley School Sports Partnership (HRVSSP) on Thursday 22 November 2018, to present school with a Gold School Games Mark Award.

The award is recognition for St Leonard's commitment to, and development of competition in school sport, physical education and physical activity.  It reflects the schools broad, balanced and inclusive sports provision that provides competitive inter-school opportunities and actively encourages those children who are less likely to be engaged in physical activities.

Thank you to Mr Kelly, Mrs Chambers(athletics coach), all staff and parents who help to support sporting activities at St Leonard's.
