P.E. at Uley

School’s PE & Sport Mission / Vision Statement

Physical Education at Uley C of E Primary School provides pupils with the skills, knowledge and understanding of various aspects of health, exercise, sport and well-being to enable them to live a healthy life and enjoy physical exercise and sport.

Through sport and PE we aim to:

  • Help children to be physically fit and mentally alert in order to learn well
  • Increase the children’s confidence and competence in a range of physical activities.
  • Enable them to understand the value of exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle
  • To encourage positive attitudes such as sportsmanship, teamwork and fair play
  • To develop self-esteem and confidence
  • Give the children opportunities to take part in extra-curriculum PE activities.

At Uley, our school development plan is continually reviewed and developed in order to achieve outstanding National Curriculum outcomes for children at our school. To achieve the outcomes within our development plan, we analyse our PE budget to ensure the sports premium funding is used in a sustainable way.

Sports for Schools

This year children across all four classes participated in the Sports for Schools initiative. The iniative is a charity run event which encourages children to participate in a range of sporting events to raise money for both the school and an Olympic athlete. We were very fortuate to have a visit from the Paralympian Katrina Hart, who ran a circuit training session and delivered a talk to the children on her experiences as a Paralympian. 

The children thoroughly enjoyed the event, and overall raised a massive £600 in sponsorship. 60% of the money raised was used to buy new sports equipment for the school. 

Thank you to everyone who sponsored a child at the school.

This year the Uley team played against 5 different schools  at Rednock. The team showed excellent sportsmanship and team work across all of their matches. They managed to score many goals, including an amazing free kick  from Archie to help win the final match of the tournament. 

A quote from Mal (Team Captain) and Huw: ' We may have lost two games, but we tried our very best and thoroughly enjoyed the competitions.'
