School Sports Partnership

The Guernsey Sports Commission has a team of experienced and passionate staff working in schools helping to provide a positive and inclusive experience of PE and sport. We work with all children throughout their primary school education.

 

We do this by:

  • Developing teachers’ understanding and knowledge of Fundamental Movement Skills and Sport
  • Developing our own practice by learning from teachers
  • Supporting the delivery of high-quality Physical Activity in schools by helping to upskill teachers
  • Promoting the diversity of Sport and Physical Activity
  • Ensuring a fun and positive experience of PE for all
  • Signposting sporting activities outside of school and identifying opportunities for greater participation
  • Funding sporting opportunities for individual children where cost is a barrier
  • Acting as a positive role model for teachers and children

 

Speak to your school’s PE and Sport Development Officer to find out more about what we do and how we can help foster a lifelong love of sport and physical activity in your child.

Primary PE |

Each primary school receives 15 weeks of high quality PE taught over 5 weekly termly blocks. The lessons take a holistic approach with children developing their physical literacy as well as cognitive, social and personal skills. 

The lessons are taught in a safe and positive environment with children developing fundamental skills through game play.

Fit Clubs |

Each primary school is offered a lunchtime and after school club which aims to target children who would benefit most from more physical activity.

For children in Year 2 the children learn about the importance of being active, drinking water, getting plenty of sleep and eating healthily through games that focus on fundamental movement skills.

For children in Year 3 and 4, children have the opportunity to try new sports that they have been introduced to in their PE lessons.

Festivals |

Our free festival opportunities provide children with the chance to try sport in the community.

Targeted at children in Year 3 and 4, the festivals aim to work closely with local sports and encourage the attendees to take the sport if they have enjoyed the experience.

The festivals provide a welcoming and inclusive environment for children to experience the sport and have a strong emphasis on fair play and fun.

Inter Schools Festivals |

The Inter Schools Festivals are targeted at children in Year 5 and 6.

The aim of the festivals is to provide additional opportunities for children who play 'minority' sports and give them the chance to represent their school in the sport they play in the community.
