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.

 

 

Swimming 

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.
