PE and Sport

Our PE and enrichment co-ordinators are Mrs Wright and Miss Barr.

The children will be involved in gymnastic, dance and outdoor PE sessions during the course of each year.

Year 4 will access swimming lessons on a weekly basis throughout the academic year. This service is provided by MCRactive and session are held at Arcadia Sports Centre (more information below).

We have organised playtimes and dinnertimes so that children have the opportunity to be active, supported by Primary Sports Coaches.

Our PE curriculum Intent, Implementation and Impact statements are detailed below.

We have a sports organising elected team called the 'Playground Pals'. This team is made up of representatives from all KS2 classes. They work alongside teachers and children to help develop, organise and promote school sport

PE & Sport Funding

All maintained schools have benefited from additional funding in the form of the PE & Sports Grant. For information on how we have used the PE and sport funding and its impact, please click here.

 

From 2015-2017 we focused on developing teachers' skills in teaching games with a focus on football, basketball, hockey, tennis, cricket & athletics. This was a two year programme of development and resulted in all PE lessons observed in summer 2017 being at least good. We now have a progressive curriculum covering Reception to Y6 which includes extension activities for children who are gifted and talented. In 2017-19 we focussed on developing our teaching of gymnastics. For 2019-21 we are looking to develop the teaching of dance.

 

Swimming

In Year 4, all of our pupils participate in swimming lessons run at the local pool.

Some key questions linked to swimming required by the DfE are

1. What percentage of your year 6 pupils could swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25m when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year? 84.5% of our children could swim 25m at the end of Y4, this has not been reassessed since that date.

 2.  What percentage of your year 6 pupils could use a range of strokes effectively (front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke) when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year? 56.5% based on their ability at the end of Y4.
  3. What percentage of your year 6 pupils could perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year? 74% based on their ability at the end of Y4
