Achieving success for all


PE at Aston

At Aston on Trent Primary School, Physical Education inspires our children to enjoy and succeed in sport and other physical activities. Through two high quality PE lessons a week, children embed the importance of leading healthy, active lifestyles now and for their future.

Our PE curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils develop the fundamental skills, competence, confidence and knowledge to excel in a wide range of sport and physically demanding activities. By providing a broad & balanced curriculum, children learn about themselves, the importance of a healthy lifestyle, self-expression and concepts such as fair play and respect. This all contributes to the development of a range of important cognitive skills such as decision making, analysis, and social skills.

Teachers and specialist PE coaches enthuse and inspire pupils to participate in physical activity both in and beyond the curriculum. At Aston, we offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities to our children, including after school clubs, opportunities to represent Aston through school sports including football, netball, tag rugby, dance and athletics. Our pupils always look forward to Sports Day and love competing in their House Teams. 

A love of the outdoors is instilled into the children at Aston both on and off site. All our children experience the opportunity to take part in regular outdoor learning and Forest School sessions. Residential trips to PGL offer opportunities that encourage children to take risks, test themselves physically, develop social skills, teamwork skills and promote independence ready for secondary school.
