Staplecross MCP School


​PE Statement 2016/7 - £8,438


Our children love all forms of physical activity and we are grateful for the improvements we have been able to make because of the additional funding from the Government.  Encouraging all children to benefit from different forms of PE is a vital part of our school aims.  It also supports our Curriculum in helping them understand the benefits to their health and well-being. 


This funding has helped us provide additional opportunities for all pupils, contributing to their social skills, as well as developing physical skills and abilities.  We work hard to attain our Sainsbury's Bronze Award for School Sport which reflects the amount of sporting opportunities we are able to provide.

Hard to reach pupils

Encouraging all pupils in a healthy, active lifestyle is an integral part of our school aims in developing their choices for the future.  As we plan different events during a school year, we look to include opportunities for every child to extend their experience of physical activities, their knowledge of how to maintain a healthy lifestyle and to enjoy the camaraderie of shared experiences and extend and challenge their own personal abilities.


This year, we participated in Sport Relief and planned a Sports Marathon afternoon where all pupils enjoyed the opportunity to join in with 9 different activities: volleyball, netball, hockey, cheerleading, yoga, cross country running, dance, baseball and crab football.
