Sports Premium


At Ladock we know how important physical education to  support  healthy lives and emotional wellbeing. It is our intent to build on this to give children the best opportunities and it is essential to ensure children attain optimum physical and emotional development and good health. We intend to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical education and in developing life skills. We want to teach children skills to keep them safe such as being able to swim., then sail and surf.  We also want to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others as part of an effective team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values. Our curriculum aims to improve the wellbeing and fitness of all children at Ladock, not only through the sporting skills taught, but through the underpinning values and disciplines PE promotes.



PE at Ladock School provides challenging and enjoyable learning through a range of sporting activities including; invasion games, net & wall games, strike and field games, gymnastics, dance, swimming and outdoor & adventure.


The long term plan, from the Arena Scheme set out the PE units which are to be taught throughout the year and ensures that the requirements of the National Curriculum are fully met.


Pupils participate in two high quality PE lessons each week, covering two sporting disciplines every half term. In addition, children are encouraged to participate in the varied range of extra-curricular activities. Lunch time sports clubs are available each day and children can attend after school sport clubs .


Children are invited to attend a variety of competitive sporting events within the local area. This is an inclusive approach which endeavours to encourage not only physical development but also mental well-being. These events also develop teamwork and leadership skills and are very much enjoyed by the children.


Each year, Year 5 and 6 children are invited to become Sports Leaders for the school. They develop into sporting role models for the younger children, assisting with lunch-time clubs, our annual Sports day and any other Sporting activities.

We encourage children to try different sports throughout the year. Inviting passionate sporting role models into school to learn about a new sport. For example boxing and sailing, providing the children with an opportunity to develop, improve their fitness and to try something new.

Children from Year 1 upwards swim everyday for a week during the Spring Term.  In Years 5 and 6 we continue swimming, teaching life saving skills and water safety. Then children can progress to sailing and surfing.


We help motivate children to participate in a variety of sports through quality teaching that is engaging and fun. From our lessons, our children learn to take responsibility for their own health and fitness, many of whom also enjoy the success of competitive sports. We equip our children with the necessary skills and a love for sport. They will hopefully grow up to live happy and healthy lives utilising the skills and knowledge acquired through PE.
