Welcome to PE at Saltdean

At Saltdean Primary  we value Sport and Physical Education and work hard to ensure that all children are given equal opportunities to participate and thrive. The PE team work closely with teachers to ensure we teach a consistent and varied curriculum helping children to develop a range of skills. 

The Deans Sports Partnership


Saltdean Primary School are part of The Deans Sports Partnership which is a joint collaboration of local schools across our Deans cluster. The Government has provided additional funding to improve provision of Physical Education and sport in primary schools. We use this additional provision to fund this valuable partnership which provides coaching for children and staff and allows children to take part in a huge range of inter-school competitions and festivals, developing and celebrating different sports.

To celebrate the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast, the five schools in the Deans Partnership took part in a Torch run, supported by Maslen Estate Agents. The sports captains from Saltdean ran from Woodingdean Primary School back to Saltdean, stopping at the other schools in the partnership on the way. 

They were welcomed back by the whole school, staff and their parents. The event was ended when all the children from every class took to the field to create a circle of colour to represent one of the Commonwealth colours. 

Congratulations to the Sports Captains and their running supporters for this brilliant achievement.
