At Mount Street Primary we are committed to providing at least two hours of high quality PE per week for all our pupils including games, dance, gymnastics, swimming and other outdoor education activities. It is important to us that our children are encouraged to live healthy, active lifestyles and they enjoy and participate in physical activity. We encourage our children to take part in competitions between their peers at Mount Street and also between some of our local schools, as well as providing a range of sports they wouldn't normally get the chance to take part in during some of their PE sessions. To learn more about the opportunities we are providing through the Primary Sports Funding see our Sports premium statement and strategy document in the Sports Premium section of our website.
At Mount Street Primary School, we then develop the children's conceptual knowledge and understanding through 'Big Ideas' which develop both in depth and knowledge as the children progress through the school.
Our delivery of competitive sport has been recognized. We have just received our Gold Certificate which is a huge achievement for us after achieving the Bronze award last time.
At Mount Street Primary School, we work in partnership with PSSP (Plymouth Schools Sports Partnership). They come to school to deliver lessons, loan us specialised equipment, organise events and competitions that we enjoy attending and support us in any way we need in terms of our Physical Education curriculum. More information about who they are and what they do can be found here on their website:
In 2019, we were awarded with the Bronze School Games Mark; an excellent achievement for our school. This year we have just been awarded with the Gold School Games Mark; something we are extremely proud of and have worked hard for. Throughout the year Mount Street worked hard to compete in various competitions, deliver 2 hours of PE a week and ticked off many other Games Mark criteria in order to achieve our award.
