“We all play our part to achieve excellence in everything” – PE and sport are key in achieving this.
We believe that physical education, experienced in a safe, engaging and supportive environment, is a significant factor in developing our children’s physical development and well-being.
We promote physical skilfulness, physical development and knowledge of the body in action. We aim to give a stimulating, enjoyable and appropriately challenging learning experience. A broad and balanced physical education curriculum is intended to provide for pupils’ increasing self-confidence in their ability to manage themselves and their bodies within a variety of movement situations. Children may work as individuals, be paired-off or take part in group activities. During co-operative, creative and competitive situations they are encouraged to use their improvisation and problem-solving skills.
Our children are also encouraged to appreciate the importance of a healthy lifestyle and be aware of the factors that affect our health and fitness.
The funding has been used to provide quality training and support for our Federation teachers through an excellent programme called ‘Real PE’. It is also used to fund our Federation PE Lead teacher, who is based at Hindringham Primary School.
In addition, the funding is used to provide swimming provision to children in Years 3, 4 and 5 to ensure that more children achieve the 25 metre requirement at the end of Year 6 and, as the school is near the coast, to ensure that children are able to swim and be confident in the water.
The funding is also used to improve provision of sports equipment and apparatus, playground markings and outdoor learning to encourage pupils to be more active at break times.
The funding also provides an afterschool sports club and helps towards the costs of enabling the school taking part in cluster sport activities.
The impact of this funding includes:
- observable improvement in general fitness levels of children
- increased successful participation in external team events
- wider range of after school sports activities/clubs available and attended
- increased teacher confidence and skill and therefore raised standards of all PE teaching
- development of assessment procedures in PE which inform pupil progress and future planning
- 50% of the current Year 6 pupils meet the national curriculum requirements for swimming.
