P.E. Policy

Making P.E. even better...

We have introduced a running club this year from September - October once a week starting at 8am for 30 minutes. This has recently started again from April - July twice a week starting at 8am for 30 minutes. This term we are following the Couch to 5K app.

We have entered different sporting competitions and festivals. We have also had specialists visiting to help us develop our skills.

We have implemented the new REAL P.E. scheme with the support of our trained P.E. Leader.

Staff have regular professional development and Mrs Potton is now helping to build and share a vision for all schools in the Bassetlaw Area for 2020. She is also a Sports Ambassador for Sport Nottinghamshire, helping to encourage, support and engage teachers to give all children the opportunity to live a fully active and healthy lifestyle.


Key Stage 1

Children are taught the fundamental movement skills through the guidelines of the National Curriculum which states children must be taught:

  • master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities
  • participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending
  • perform dances using simple movement patterns.

Key Stage 2

 Children are taught the fundamental movement skills with more breadth and depth through the guidelines of the National Curriculum which states children must be taught:

  • use running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination
  • play competitive games, modified where appropriate [for example, badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders and tennis], and apply basic principles suitable for attacking and defending  develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance [for example, through athletics and gymnastics]
  • perform dances using a range of movement patterns
  • take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team
  • compare their performances with previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best.


Physical Education - Sports Premium Funding

What is the Sports Premium funding?

The sports premium funding is a grant from the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. The funding was introduced to continue the Olympic legacy and encourage the next generation to live a more active and healthy lifestyle.

Does PE matter in school?

Yes, new research finds that half of all seven year olds do not get enough exercise, 38% of girls at that age take part in the recommended hour of moderate or vigorous exercise a day and one in three young people leave primary school overweight.

The wider benefit

It’s not just about health and fitness, developing high quality PE and sporting opportunities for young people can have an impact across a range of other areas including: their sense of well-being, self-esteem, confidence, discipline and resilience. It is also well evidenced that a positive relationship exists between physical activity and memory, attention and concentration.

Primary aged children participating in as little as 10 minutes of additional organised physical activity a day gain huge benefits in terms of enhanced cognitive function, improved classroom behaviour and consequently enhanced academic performance.

How are we spending this money for the academic year 2016/2017?

This academic year once again sees us receiving £9,000, with this funding we will again be investing in the Schools Sports Package, offered by Michala Swales (School Games Organiser). This will give us a specialised professional development programme for the staff, access to different sports such as handball, tag rugby and many different festivals for all of our children to attend through out the year.

We have a new P.E. scheme in place called REAL P.E. to encourage our pupils to focus on the fundamental movement skills and multi - abilities needed to go on to play sports. There is one fully trained member of staff in school and three others who have attended training sessions to help deliver a fantastic skills based P.E. curriculum for all of our pupils. This is in line with the expectations of the National Curriculum.

We have become members of the Youth Sport Trust. Through this membership we are able to access professional development for our staff as well as keeping us informed of all the developments in sport.

All other funding this academic year will help towards the transport costs when we attend events.
