Physical Education

PE and Sport

St Edmund’s Catholic Primary Schools’ vision for PE is to be committed to every child in the school, to meet their individual needs and reach their potential. To achieve this, children from every Year group, Reception to Year 6, take part in two hours of planned lessons each week. This includes one hour outdoor and one hour in our well-equipped hall. 

In both Key Stages, lessons include invasion games, ball and athletic skills, dance and gymnastics. These lessons are delivered following Enfield Borough PE Team plans, which develop every pupil’s balance, coordination, agility and skill. 

Swimming

This is an important part of the PE Curriculum and pupils from Year 5 travel to Edmonton Green Swimming Pool for 15 weeks of lessons during the course of the year. They are taught by qualified swim instructors who work for directly for the local authority.

Extra-Curricular Sport clubs

Alongside our timetabled lessons, we run a variety of after school clubs. These include netball, cross country and boys and girl’s football. These extra-curricular clubs provide additional coaching for pupils with a keen interest to develop their skills. Those who attend also get a chance to represent the school at borough competitions, where we have been very successful winning 

Daily Mile initiative

The Daily Mile initiative encourages children to improve their physical and mental health and well-being. We have also been very fortunate for Sir Mo Farah to visit and promote this in our school by running along with the children and staff.

Lunchtimes

To ensure our children are involved in structured play at lunchtime, we have a sports coach from Foundation Sports who supports and instructs the game. Our lunchtime supervisors have also been trained to lead activities in the playground with designated areas for adult and children relationships to blossom outside the classroom setting. 

Sports Day

Sports Days are always great days out at St. Edmund’s school. Each year, over two days children compete in House teams or Year groups in the world-class Lea Valley Athletic Center. It is a fun, competitive day and memorable day for the family and whole school community. Each child takes part in different events such as running, skipping, relay, hurdles and long jump. 

Together with other subjects, PE helps to prepare pupils for adult life and contributes to the development of a wide range of physical, personal, social, learning and thinking skills.

We are delighted to say that physical education at our school is growing from strength to strength each year. Last year alone, we maintained our Gold in the Sainsbury’s Active Kids awards, and we are now going for Platinum!
