Physical Education 

Physical Education Vision

Our school aims to inspire all children to develop a love of physical activity and sport.Through good physical education, whole school values and a whole child approach, we aim to nurture confident, resilient children who will strive for their personal best.

We listen to our children’s wants and needs and provide them with a range of active experiences and clubs. We want to aid our children in obtaining the values and skills to celebrate and respect the success of others, as well as modestly celebrating their own successes.

We aim to ensure that our delivery of physical education allows all children to have the skills and mind-set to leave Norwood Green Infant school with the capabilities to be successful in their sporting challenges and active lifestyles at Junior school and beyond.  

We strive to educate both our children and families to develop a greater understanding on how to live healthy lifestyles and make healthy choices. We are dedicated to ensuring healthy minds, as well as bodies and will continue to support our children's well-being.

We have established links with local clubs and partnerships within our community to ensure the children and families receive the support and knowledge they need.

Year 1 – Gymnastics & games

  • All children in Year 1 received a 10 week block of tennis coaching delivered by Dukes Meadow tennis coaches.
  •  All children participate in the daily mile
  •  Amit V and his team – PE specialists teach the majority of PE across the school

This improved teacher expertise in targeted year groups, improved quality of provision and high quality learning took place. Children have improved their skills significantly in all of these areas.

 

This raised standards of teaching and learning.

  • Children have been taught the fundamental skills of tennis, also skills such as balance and coordination with opportunity to develop lifelong skills.
  •  This improves physical activity and increases engagement.
  •  This ensures children are receiving high quality PE.

TRAINING & DEVELOPMENT

 CPD opportunities have been offered for teachers in national and bespoke programmes in PE and Sport. Cover has been provided to release the PE Co-ordinator for professional development training in PE and sport, including attending an annual PE Conference.

Teachers who received training:

Whole Staff – Gymnastics Inset – delivered by Amit V

  •  Updated PE specialist on new initiatives and government spending.
  • Improved teacher expertise and confidence to teach these units of work.

COMPETITION

  • Cranford Sports day – Year 2
  •  Springwell inter School competition – Year 1
  •  Whole School Sports day
  •  Inter Class Competitions – Year 1 & 2

 

These events are organised by the borough, Pete Lammas & PE Coordinator

 Transport to sporting events is included in the 70% allocation

This enabled children to participate and compete against other schools. Children tried activities they have never tried before. This improved their coordination and skills in particular events and demonstrated to children how skills can be transferable.

 

This has not only taught them the rules and skills but the importance of team work and sportsmanship.

This was an introduction to competitive sport for Year 1.

Self-Funded Provision

AFTER SCHOOL CLUB

A wide variety of extra-curricular after-school clubs have been offered to all children in Reception to Year 2 during the year.  The cost of clubs has remained very affordable to allow greater accessibility; consequently, the school are subsidising additional costs to coaches.

 Free places have been offered to ‘pupil premium’ children and children with additional needs.

 

The sports clubs on offer this year have been:

Football, deaf football, gymnastics, athletics, dance, tennis, yoga and cricket

Also…

Gifted and Talented Club, SEN Club, ASD Sessions

 

Children’s fitness levels improve as does their love for sport; evidenced by children’s participation and outcomes in competitions, Coordination and teamwork are also enhanced. Children learn more specific skills that are transferable.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Data has been used to target groups of children who are not making as much progress and those who are exceeding outcomes are being significantly challenged.

Children’s playground equipment and PE stock has been replenished with new equipment for each term. Along with a new shed for playtime equipment.

Children have become more active during their day and their friendship groups have grown.

 

Children have taken on leadership roles that have increased their levels of responsibility and behaviour at playtimes.

Cover has been provided for the coordinator to write reports, update the school website and analyse club participation.

This informs parents, governors and the community of updated sporting information. It shows outsiders what the funding has been spent on and the impact it has had on children and the school. Tracking children’s participation in extra-curricular activities ensured these clubs were accessible to all and specific children were targeted; which encouraged a healthy lifestyle and increased particular individual’s physical activity.

 

All children in both key stages participate in an intra-sports day.

This increased children’s level of competitiveness and developed their sportsmanship.
