PE and Sport at Carlton and Bilsdale

At Carlton & Faceby and Bilsdale, we recognise the importance of Primary PE and Sport and the role it has to play in promoting long term, healthy lifestyles. Our children are offered a breadth of experiences in PE and Sport. They have opportunities to participate in activities such as games, dance, gymnastics and athletics. Every child is included in physical education and they are encouraged to be the best that they can be.

Association for Physical Education’s view of Physical Education is as follows:

The aim of physical education is to develop physical competence so that all children are able to move efficiently and safely and understand what they are doing. The outcome- physical literacy-is as important to children’s overall development as literacy and numeracy’.


At Carlton & Faceby and Bilsdale we promote the values of respect, friendship, courage, equality and inspiration giving the children knowledge, skills and motivation to establish and maintain a healthy lifestyle and enjoyment of physical activity and sport. We are committed to ensuring that every child has:

A sense of well-being.

A stronger sense of self-esteem.

Their co-ordination improves along with their rhythm and timing.

They show improved concentration and application to tasks


How does our PE curriculum set out the knowledge and skills that pupils gain at each stage?

It is our intention at Carlton & Faceby and Bilsdale, to teach children life skills that will impact positively on their future. We aim to develop a well-balanced, resilient child who is ready for the 21st Century. One who has skills and the knowledge that are required to help them to succeed and make healthy choices in our ever-changing modern world. Through participation in PE and extracurricular activities we provide the foundations for a healthy lifestyle and promotes character building, self-esteem and enjoyment in a variety of physical activities and challenges. High quality teaching and learning opportunities inspire and nurture children to succeed, that in turn teaches children how to co-operate and how to collaborate with others to understand fairness and equality.

The Implementation of our PE Curriculum

Children at Carlton & Faceby and Bilsdale participate in weekly high-quality PE and Sporting activities. The Primary PE Curriculum is designed to incorporate the development of children’s confidence, resilience and an appreciation of not only their own strengths and weaknesses but also that of their peers. All children from Reception to Year 6 are provided with the opportunity to engage in Extra Curricular Activities. An inclusive approach aims to encourage every child to be the best that they can possibly be. We teach the children the Social and Emotional aspects of PE as well as the Physical, which affects their mindset and improves their mental health and well-being. Children are encouraged to move out of their comfort zones and to challenge themselves on a daily basis; this includes competing in competitive sports. Staff are committed to ensure that every child has a sense of wellbeing, a stronger sense of self-esteem, improved concentration, improved co-ordination, along with co-operating and collaborating with others.

Primary PE & Sports Premium

Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. This funding must be used to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport we offer.

We use the premium to:

  • Develop or add to the PE and sport activities that we already offer.
  • Build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.

The school applies the following DfE Vision Statement to the core of all planned initiatives associated with the Premium:


‘All pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport’.



At Carlton & Faceby and Bilsdale we address progress in accordance with the nationally prescribed five indicators that are:


  • The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  • The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  • Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • Increased participation in competitive sport.


We comply with meeting the statutory requirement, as instructed by Department for Education, to ensure that information on the use of the Primary PE and Sport Premium is made available to parents on our school website. Whilst accountability rests with all schools by way of how the funding is spent, it is the case that all schools must annually provide online evidence of actual spend and long-term impact based upon the following areas:

  • The amount of premium received
  • A full breakdown of how it has been spent (or will be spent)
  • The impact the school has seen on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment
  • How the improvements will be sustainable in the future.
