Physical Education

Physical Education (PE)  We aim to develop agility, coordination and confidence through physical activity. All pupils participate in PE every week. Dance, gymnastics, swimming, games and athletics are taught throughout the year.  We encourage a competitive spirit while recognising the value of cooperation, fair play and team work.
The PE lessons in school are delivered by Premier Sports Coaches.   We have developed a successful evolving partnership with this organisation over a number of years.   Premier Sport is the UK's largest children's coaching company of its kind, successfully delivering more than 20,000 sport and physical activity sessions every month. Premier Sport supports teachers in their curriculum delivery and provides parents with an invaluable service before, during, afterschool and during holiday periods.

Platinum School Games Mark Award

We are delighted to be recognised for maintaining consistently high standards in sports provision. Liscard Primary School has received this award for making a commitment to develop its pupils to be the best they can be in competitive school sport.

The Award's aim is to reward schools for a commitment to the development of competition across schools and into the community. Participating in this process allows schools to evaluate their PE provision, grading them either bronze, silver or gold, and assists schools in developing an action plan for future progress. The Platinum Award is the highest level of the award scheme, introduced to celebrate schools who have shown consistently high-levels of enthusiasm and commitment to school sport. Applications are only open to those schools who achieved five successive gold awards.

To achieve the gold award a school must meet a certain set of criteria, which includes engaging a high percentage of young people in both curricular and extracurricular activities, participating in a minimum number of competitions across different sports, and reaching out to target groups including young leaders, volunteers, and those previously identified as the school’s least-active pupils.
