PE at Cedars Park Primary School is an important part of school life. The aim is to encourage pupils to have a life-long interest and enjoyment of physical activity. All pupils have at least two hours of high quality PE timetabled where they follow the new National Curriculum. Pupils in Reception and Key Stage 1 pupils develop fundamental skills looking specifically at movement, agility, balance, coordination, individually and with others. Pupils in Key Stage 2 build on their work in Key Stage 1, improving their skills and understanding in a variety of areas of activity including games, athletics, gymnastics, dance, outdoor activities and swimming. Taking part in competitive games is also a key part of the Key Stage 1 & Key Stage 2 curriculum.
Pupils are also given the chance to take part in a range of extra-curricular PE activities at lunchtimes and after school throughout the academic year. There are a number of opportunities to take part in local intra school fixtures, festivals and competitions. The school works closely with the Stowmarket School Games Organiser.
Through our engaging and enjoyable PE provision, we want our pupils to become physically active for continued periods of time, take part in competitive sports and activities, lead healthy, active lives and develop competence in a broad range of physical activities.

PE Pupil Premium at Cedars Park Primary School
This is a very exciting time in terms of funding in PE and Sport for pupils. We aim to use the funding at Cedars Park to develop the range of opportunities for our pupils and increase the participation levels in extra- curricular sport. We are determined to find each child's niche to ensure they make the correct healthy lifestyle choices and have a love and enjoyment of PE and Sport. There are other aims and targets the school is focusing on to use the funding effectively so that there is a lasting legacy for every pupil.
Schools can choose how they use the funding, for example to:
1. hire specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers during PE lessons
2. support and involve the least active children by running after-school sports clubs and holiday clubs, e.g. the Change4Life clubs
3. provide resources and training courses in PE and sport for teachers
4. run sport competitions or increase pupils' participation in the School Games
5. run sports activities with other school.
Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
