St. Augustines' offers exceptional opportunities for pupils to access a range of physical activities. Alongside teachers delivering high quality skills based lessons, children are also given the opportunity to access alternative sports within the curriculum, such as tri golf, fencing, yoga, archary and lacrosse. As well as promoting physical fitness and well-being with the children, the school also works closely with the families and offers active family sessions.
To enhance pupil participation, PE Leaders and Play Leaders play a key role in our curriculum. Children are keen to share their thoughts for the development of the PE provision throughout the school day. They also help staff to lead healthy lunch time activities and help to lead our weekly morning boot camp for families and children. PE Leaders also help to organise any inter house competitions across our Multi academy.
All pupils in year 5 and year 6 have the opportunity to complete cycling proficiency and road safety courses. As part of the extended schools provision, all pupils may access pupils sporting/well-being activities including, football, athletics, tag rugby, cross-country, tri golf, ballet, yoga and many more. There is a school football team, which is coached by Stoke City Football Club, which competes within our MAC and local school league of 'Longton'. All pupils from Y3 -Y6 will take part in swimming lessons over the year.
PE Kit and PE Days
All children are expected to take part in PE lessons to improve fitness and stamina; therefore, it is really important that children have their kits in school. PE kit consists of a white top, black/ shorts/ dark tracksuit bottoms and trainers or pumps.
Children may have PE sessions outside so a dark jumper/hoodie may be worn, this needs to be plain with no large emblem on it (a small sports logo is fine). Black school hoodies (with the school logo on) can be purchased from Trutex, children can wear them for PE lessons, sporting events and after school clubs.
Please see the table below for timetabled PE. We advise PE kits to be at school everyday.
