PE

Using our sports funding, since September 2013, we have employed a specialist PE teacher, Mrs Hunter-Dale, who works alongside our teaching staff to increase their skills in teaching PE.  Through the year we teach a range of PE skills including those associated with the following sports: football, hockey, netball, basketball, rugby, rounders, cricket, athletics, swimming, gymnastics and tennis as well as dance.  Children in Reception and KS1 develop their skills using bats, balls and other equipment as well as our gymnastic equipment in the hall while older children hone their skills progressing to team games.  We have also have an assault course and trim trail to develop children’s adventure learning and balance have an orienteering course that we use both in PE lessons and across the curriculum.

SEND: For children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, we ensure that all teaching and learning is inclusive and that children are supported wherever necessary with resources, teaching assistant or teacher support and additional input if required. Some children with gross motor difficulties receive support during PE lessons or in addition to PE lessons with their gross motor skills, core strength, coordination, etc. This is often linked to their IEP targets.

We offer a wide range of extra-curricular sports clubs throughout the year including: football, girls’ football, rounders, athletics, table tennis, cross country, basketball, swimming and gymnastics.  The children are able to play football on our pitch every lunchtime led by our lunchtime playworker.   We also have sporting activity days where we might have specialists in school working with the children or the children are involved in a sporting event such as a sponsored run or “World Cup Tournament”.  We have previously achieved Sports Gold Mark.  The children take part in inter-school competitions, particularly in football where our PTA organise a local boys’ and girls’ mini-league.
