PE and Sport Premium
Edinburgh Primary ~ A community school with a passion for the arts!
PE at Edinburgh
All children are taught one indoor and outdoor PE session each week. In upper key stage 2, children also learn to swim. We are proud to be working in partnership Salaam Peace~a link that began in 2011. Over the last decade, the partnership has increased and the impact on pupils and their families has widened. Currently, Salaam Peace deliver lunchtime provision, PE lessons and afterschool clubs. During lunchtimes, staff members lead two different sports to all pupils. Across the lunchtime period, all years groups benefit from the sports on offer and participate in active lunchtimes. In addition to this, Salaam Peace focuses in on one year group per half-term - teaching pupils a range of different skills and sports.
Our most recent joint project was the development of our ball court into a state of the art multi-purpose astro turf. This has enabled enhanced provision in the school day as well as the offer a wide community engagement programme. The current Salaam Peace volunteers include Mohammed and Zayd, who are both aged 15 and are ex Edinburgh pupils! This shows that the relationship between an Edinburgh Primary School pupil and Salaam Peace is long term. Many Edinburgh pupils go on to represent Salaam Peace sports teams as well as participate in evening and weekend programmes based at the school.
We are very proud of our link with Salaam Peace and look forward to many more years of partnership.
