Aloeric Primary School

                                       Athletes at Aloeric   


At Aloeric, our vision is to provide engaging opportunities for children to experience high quality Physical Education and school sport through personal challenge and            competition that will lead to life-long participation. 

PE plays a vital role in promoting physical activities, a healthy lifestyle and promotes positive mental health in an active and enjoyable way for all pupils. Our curriculum        aims to develop and challenge pupils’ abilities in a range of physical activities and sports – helping them to develop their personal fitness, understand the importance of a healthy lifestyle and learn important life skills such as teamwork, honesty and                                                                            perseverance.    


At Aloeric, we have recently adopted the Real Legacy PE Scheme which supports the development of physical activity across the school in a range of contexts.


Our athletes all access:


REAL PE (1 hour per week):

Real PE is, first and foremost, a philosophy and approach which aims to transform how PE is taught in order to include, challenge and support EVERY child. It is a progressive essential skills scheme of work which develops the 12 fundamental skills needed to gain physical and sporting mastery across the 6 key dimensions of: Creative, Cognitive, Physical, Health & Fitness, Social & Personal. 


Wider Sports (1 hour per week):

This covers all of the other areas of PE covered in the National Curriculum, including: Games, Dance, Gymnastics, Athletics and Swimming. As athletes, our children use the fundamental skills developed in REAL PE within all these traditional aspects of PE.

Additional sports coaching

In addition to our taught sessions of PE we also hold Wake and Shake every morning for all children to attend. Each lunchtime a sports coach has been employed to provide additional coaching sessions for each key stage. We are also very fortunate that Bath Rugby have been providing the year 4 children with additional coaching sessions and we have used Sports Funding to finance weekly after school Rugby training led by Bath Rugby.


Other opportunities to play sports include after school clubs such as Martial Arts, Street Dance, Netball, Football, Cricket and Multi Sports.


Some of these additional activities are on pause or look slightly different due to COVID, but our children are still accessing a full PE curriculum and we will add more extra curricular clubs again as soon as we can. 


Children are also able to access REAL PE at home; they have their own log in details and further information can be found here.
