Sports Provision

Curriculm Aims 

The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  • are physically active for sustained periods of time
  • engage in competitive sports and activities
  • lead healthy, active lives

At Utkinton we aim to deliver PE lessons in a fun, challenging, learning environment where children have the opportunity to reach their full potential. Sessions are delivered to develop children’s fundamental skills in a multi-sport environment, highlighting the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle.

Over the past six years we have successfully competed in many different sporting competitions, at both cluster and area levels. Opportunity is given to both competitive and non-competitive children to take part across the year - as we believe that there are benefits for all children in competition.
After-school sports clubs, led by both teachers and external coaches, built onto weekly PE sessions, help to provide a broad and rich curriculum for the children at Utkinton.

Below is a list of dates for sporting competitions we plan to enter over the next academic year (more will be added as they are confirmed).

Summer Term 2019 Extra-Curricular Sports Clubs

Monday:  Tri-Golf 

Tuesday:  Sports Club delivered by Mrs Clarke


Curriculum Long Term Overview - 2018/19

Children have an afternoon of PE each week, taught by specialist PE teachers and outside coaches. Our curriculum is built around the Sandstone Partnership Competition calendar and offers a broad and balanced experience. 


Children in KS2 receive an hour of swimming during their allocated block. Swimming will take place at Christleton High School. Year 5/6 will have their block of sessions in the Autumn Term, Year 3/4 in the Spring Term and then any swimmers still needing to develop will be offered an additional opportunity to attend sessions in the Summer Term. We believe that swimming is a vital life skill. Therefore, we go beyond the requirements of the national curriculum. Our aim being that all children will leave school at Year 6 being able to swim 25 metres. Below are the percentages that met the national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety from last years Year 6. 

Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety

Please complete all of the below:

What percentage of your Year 6 pupils could swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year?



What percentage of your Year 6 pupils could use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke] when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year?


What percentage of your Year 6 pupils could perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year?


Schools can choose to use the Primary PE and Sport Premium to provide additional provision for swimming but this must be for activity over and above the national curriculum requirements. Have you used it in this way?
