St. Augustines' offers exceptional opportunities for pupils to access a range of physical activities. Teachers and expert sports coaches from our partners at ASM deliver high quality skills based lessons in Dance, Gymnastics, Games and Athletics.
Children are also given the opportunity to access alternative sports, such as Lacrosse, Archery, ballet, golf and more through our extended provision from 8am and 3pm. For more information click here. As well as promoting physical fitness and well-being with the children, the school also works closely with families and offers a range of family support packages regarding health, fitness and staying active.
To enhance pupil participation, 'Play Leaders' play a key role in our curriculum. They help staff to lead healthy active lunch time activities and help during PE lessons! PE Leaders from St Thomas More also help to organise any inter house competitions across our Multi academy and aid our children's transition to high school.
All pupils in Year 6 have the opportunity to complete cycling proficiency and road safety courses. There is a school football team, which competes within our MAC and local school league of 'Longton'.
Thursday Whole School PE
Children across the whole school will take part in 2 PE lessons on Thursday's as part of our drive to improve fitness and the quality of provision. 1 lesson to learn and practise a new skill and a further lesson to apply this skill. For example, children will learn passing drillings in football before applying this to using tactics in a game situation.
All children are expected to take part in PE lessons to improve fitness and stamina; therefore, it is really important that children have the correct kit. PE kit consists of our PE sweatshirt available from Trutex and black shorts/black tracksuit bottoms and trainers/pumps. NO large sports logo's please.
All children are expected to wear their outdoor PE kit all day on Thursday's with their school shoes and blue jumpers. Please see your child's class Dojo page or class website page to see if your child has dance or gymnastics where they will need to wear shorts under their joggers and bring pumps in separately to wear indoors. If PE is outside they will need to bring trainers in a separate bag.
Children in Year 6 attend a weekly swimming lesson on Wednesday's at Fenton Manor Baths. The lesson begins at 1.50pm and children will be back to school for their usual collection. Please note swimming lessons begin on the 22nd September 2021.
Please ensure they bring a swimming kit each Wednesday consisting of a swimming costume/trunks /towel and swim hat. Contact the class teacher with any questions.
