Haydon Abbey School and Pre-School
PE and Sport Premium Grant
Primary National Curriculum for PE states that, “ a high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect”.
We ensure that PE has a very high profile in this school, enabling all children to fully participate and achieve their potential, by having an excellent team delivering the PE curriculum from Pre-School to Year 6.
Mrs Westcott is a highly qualified PE teacher and Mr Andrews is a qualified sports coach who is also training to be a primary school teacher.
