Couldn’t agree more! 👏 I’ve felt very grateful over the last few weeks. Knowing there was a team taking care of the ‘other’ stuff meant I got to focus all my attention on staff, pupils & families.

As a frontline doctor in London - you really really need to take this seriously - it is bad - it is really bad - already - and it’s predicted to be worse by next weekend - too many people really don’t get it yet - stay indoors!! Seriously!

I saw an article on this over half-term (maybe yours) and I have now started this at my school! Teachers are grateful and I get to indulge my passion of reading aloud! We shared Pirates love underpants, which even ks2 laughed at and The Twits!

Very sad to hear about the passing of one of our Heroines, who died today aged 101. A NASA pioneer and gifted mathematician, she paved the way for women and people of colour to be given credibility in the scientific arena.

A reminder that we are closed today for pupils. We look forward to seeing you all on Monday!



The teaching of PE will enable children to develop their physical literacy. Teachers will ensure that pupils have access to two hours of high quality PE lessons every week which will incorporate a wide variety of activities including; games, gymnastics, athletics, dance, swimming and outdoor activities. As a school we understand that PE education is not just physical but also about an awareness of healthy diet and lifestyle choices such as walking or cycling to school.

PE education at Aureus Primary School will enable children to develop greater self-esteem and promote the skills of leadership, teamwork, fair play, respect and co-operation. 

Curriculum aims

During the EYFS stage, children will start their physical literacy learning path. By developing an understanding of how their body moves and by exploring basic agility, balance & coordination skills (ABC’s), they will begin to enjoy PE and sport on their own and with others.

At Key Stage One we aim to build on fundamental movement skills through developing object control, locomotion, and stability (ABC’s) within a variety of activities. Children will become increasingly confident movers and will begin to foster an enjoyment of PE.

Throughout Key Stage Two children will be encouraged to use the movement skills established in Key Stage One to develop fundamental sports skills. Children will link basic movements with those needed to develop the techniques which will enable them to participate in a range of activities including; games, gym, dance, athletics and outdoor education.

At Aureus we always aim to encourage independent learning as well as cooperative team work. Children will be involved in a process of self-assessment, ensuring that they are aware of the progress that they are making and what their individual next step will be.

Through the teaching of PE we also aim to cover these four key areas

Healthy me: Children will understand what makes a healthy body. This will link subjects across the curriculum including what is healthy eating and why exercise is important for life. Where necessary, children will be offered a place at Change for Life club to further develop these areas.

Social me: Development of team work skills and self-control in both PE lessons and on the playground. Children will aim to communication with their peers in order to benefit themselves and their team mates.  Pupils will develop leadership skills in a variety of contexts such as teams and small groups. Older children will use their experience to run activities for younger children at playtimes and sporting events. We aim for these social skills to be transferred into other areas of the curriculum such as maths and English.

Thinking me: At Aureus Primary  will aim for our children to develop their independence of thought and action through thinking creatively whilst solving problems and working together as a team.  Children will begin to be able to comment on their own performances and become managers of their own learning, exploring ways in which they can improve.

Physical me: Children will develop the physical skills needed to participate in a range of sporting activities.
