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.
