Physical Education

At Quethiock C of E School we believe PE & Sport has the potential to change young people’s lives for the better.

We welcomed the Government’s announcement in June 2013 to provide additional funding to improve provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource to develop high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our children.

A wide range of PE is delivered to our pupils, which aims to engage and inspire the children. This is taught by external providers and by our teaching staff, using a range of established and innovative curriculum resources. We work with a range of partners to supplement our curriculum with trained coaches e.g. from Plymouth Argyle who provide ongoing CPD for our staff as well as expert tuition and coaching. We also like to try out lots of ‘Alternative Sports’ such as fencing, golf, horseriding, cycling and archery.

Extra curricular Sport

Our extra-curricular programme is extensive and includes many after school clubs. The majority of our after school clubs are run by our committed teaching staff and dedicated parents, and are free of charge. Please see some of our previous club letters below to see the range of after-school sporting opportunities that we provide. 

We are always keen to add to this offer, so if you are a member of our community with a passion for sport and a willingness to undertake an enhanced DBS check and some training, please get in touch to see what skills you can bring to the school to share.

We offer a range of clubs throughout the year which have, in the past, included: football, netball, hockey, tag rugby, cross country, rounder’s, yoga, dance, athletics, cheerleading, aerobics and orienteering. Clubs are often reflective of the sporting season!

We also provide after school sports clubs to our KS1 pupils, to develop a love of sport, e.g. multi skills and athletics. Please see information below on how we spend our sports premium funding.

Following the announcement by the government in June 2013 that funding would be provided until 2021 to improve the provision of PE and Sport in Primary schools; we are committed to using the funding to develop high quality PE lessons, resources and opportunities for every child, across the curriculum and beyond.
