Physical education is delivered by Mr Watson, our P.E/sport teacher. Each child has access to 2 hours quality physical education each week. This is supplemented by additional dance classes.
The National Curriculum aims are for all children, they include the following:
- To be physically active, working towards a target of 30 minutes activity before, during and after the school day (excluding general play times).
- To excel in a broad range of activities.
- To engage in competition.
- To lead healthy lifestyles.
We aim to meet the curriculum expectations with the help of Sport Premium Funding by providing:
- A more inclusive curriculum.
- A growth in traditional and alternative sports.
- Improvements in our partnership work within other schools.
- Creating links with other subjects that contribute to pupils overall achievement and their greater social, spiritual, moral and cultural skills.
We also offer:
- All pupils in Years 4 and 5 participate in swimming lessons at the local pool for 40 minutes each week throughout the year (minimum of 24 weeks) .
- Additional swimming lessons are purchased using the Sports Premium Funding for the Summer Term; this is to ensure that all children reach the minimum requirement of being able to swim to 25 metres.
- Children in Year 5 complete the Bikeability sessions to ensure their safety on the roads.
- A wide range of after school sport clubs, that are inclusive to all. Our after school sport clubs change ever half term to give children a opportunity to try something new.
- Give opportunities to all children to take part in intra/inter school competitions throughout their time at our school.
- All children participate in National Sport Week. During this event, pupils will take part in numerous activities such as archery, karate ect…
- Some children are chosen to be sports ambassadors/leaders, they will to help deliver after school clubs, be the student voice for sport in our school and also run lunch time activities.
