PE and School Sport

Miss Nuttall – PE and School Sport Co-ordinator

Mr O’Brien – Sport and Competition Lead

Our school motto is ‘Don’t sit, get fit. Aim high, give it a try’


We believe that  PE and School Sport is all about developing the ‘whole child’ rather than just developing physically.

Here is what some of the Augustine All-stars think sport is all about…

Healthy active lifestyles 

At St Augustine’s we understand the importance of living a healthy, active lifestyle. Here is how we are achieve our 30 active minutes:

  • We have started completing the ‘Daily Mile’ or skipping to music at play times.
  • During lessons, we complete ‘sensory snacks/ brain breaks’ to get our bodies and minds moving.
  • At dinner times, the children have access to a variety of zones (Games zone, free play zone, competition zone and equipment zone)
  • On Friday afternoons, children participate in ‘Learn to earn’. During this time, children can participate in free play outside or yoga/dance in the hall.

Last year’s events:

Your Mile Your Way

On Friday 18th May, the children participated in the ‘Your Mile Your Way’ challenge. This challenge had been coordinated by Lancashire County Council, who aimed to get at least 24,901 people throughout Lancashire to complete the amount of miles it would take to walk around the world.

The children  chose a card after each lap, which told them how they should move on the next lap, and these movements includde: walking, jogging, running, skipping, hopping, jumping, side galloping and ‘flossing’!

This challenge will kick start our PE and School Sport focus ‘healthy active lifestyles’ for the next academic year. We have signed up for the daily mile and aim to improve the health and fitness of all children.

The study of The Daily Mile – the popular fitness campaign which invites schools to sign up to a 15-minute classroom break to take part in physical activity – has confirmed that it boosts activity levels in class and improves fitness and body composition with increased time spent active per day, decreased time spent sedentary per day and increased running performance.

Steven Defour Visit!

Super Steven Defour visited our school! He was interviewed by the year 6 children and then had pictures with all the children in the school. They all thought he was a truly inspirational man!

National Fitness Day

Craig Heap the Olympic gymnast spent the day in our school. He spoke to the children about aspirations and being healthy. Throughout school; children made healthy eating posters, counted calories in maths, wrote instructions for games etc. It was a great day! Take a look at our photos!

These children have now entered year 6 and have all been given jobs including: play leaders, news team, managers, competition organisers, photographers and administration .

The children will continue to promote healthy and active lifestyles through activities, updating the school notice board and presenting their vision for sport in school.
