Sherington Primary School
PE and Sports Premium
‘A high quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sports and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect’.
– National Curriculum Physical Education (2014)
At Sherington, Physical Education (PE) provides opportunities for pupils to be creative, cooperative, face up to different challenges as individuals and part of a team. We aim to promote healthy and active lifestyles by stimulating and maintaining an interest and enjoyment in PE.
In the Early Years and Foundation Stages (EYFS), the children are provided with stimulating indoor and outdoor play to develop their fine and gross motor skills as part of their physical development.
Children in Key Stages 1 and 2 have two PE lessons a week, an indoor and an outdoor session. They benefit from well-planned lessons using an extensive range of equipment and apparatus –in the hall, ball court and outdoor area. During their time at Sherington, the children will all have access to lessons delivered by specialist teachers which include swimming, tennis, gymnastics and basketball.
We hold a yearly Sports Day for EYFS, Key Stages 1 and 2 to celebrate children’s skills developed throughout the year.
At Sherington we promote an active and healthy lifestyle by weekly Get Up and Get Active (GUGAFIT) sessions. We encourage all staff and children, at the end of lunch time, to take part in an enjoyable and motivating fitness session.
Afterschool sports clubs enrich the curriculum and provide pupils with opportunities to work with children from other age groups.
