St Andrew'sCE Primary School


At St. Andrew's we understand and value the importance of physical activity and sport. Our children are encouraged to undertake a range of sports and activities, and they learn that it is fun to stay fit and active – a vital foundation to help them lead healthy lives.

We have extensive outside facilities including a large sports field and a hard court area as well as a school hall for indoor lessons. We are fortunate to also have the use of the nearby local tennis courts and additional sports field.

Our wide range of activities include:

  • Games

  • Athletics

  • Gymnastics

  • Dance

  • Outdoor and Adventurous Activities

Swimming is an important life skill, and as such, we aspire for all children to leave our school being able to swim at least 25 metres.

In line with the National Curriculum for PE we aim 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

As well as weekly PE sessions, children are given opportunities to participate in extra-curricular activities such as lunchtime or after school sports clubs and inter-school competitions with the South Leicestershire School Sport Partnership and our trophy cabinet proudly displays some of our sporting achievements.

At the start, children are introduced to fundamental skills, spatial awareness and body control. This knowledge is then developed on their journey in school life, moving on through the years to build their skills in a variety of sports and game situations. Once children are in Year 6, they can apply for the role of a Sports or Wellbeing Ambassador. They become a crucial role model for the younger children and develop their skills of becoming a leader.
