Primary schools in England have been receiving additional funding since 2013 to support sustainable improvements to the provision of P.E. and sport. This government funding can only be spent on P.E. and sport in primary schools with the aim to encourage and develop healthy, active lifestyles.
Inmans Primary School is committed to providing quality Physical Education: boosting young people’s confidence; extending social networks and providing them with the necessary skills and knowledge to improve their health and wellbeing. Delivered to all children, Physical Education is the planned, progressive learning that takes place in school curriculum timetabled time and is delivered to all pupils. Physical Education involves both ‘learning to move’ (i.e., becoming more physically competent) and ‘moving to learn’ (e.g., learning through movement, a range of skills and understanding beyond physical activity, such as co-operating with others). The context for Physical Education learning is ‘physical activity’ whereby children experience a broad range of activities, including sport and dance.
Our aim is to supplement the progressive learning that takes place inside the school curriculum timetabled time with school sport opportunities that take learning beyond the classroom (i.e., in the extended curriculum); this is referred to as extra-curricular learning. Again, the context for this learning is physical activity designed to develop and broaden the foundation learning that takes place whilst forming vital links with ‘community sport and activity’. Here, children are also taught the importance of good health: physical exercise and a healthy diet. Children play cooperatively, taking turns with others. Teachers emphasize the importance of considering one another’s ideas and how to organize their activity.
At Inmans Primary School, Physical Education in Early Years Foundation Stage aims to show children good control and coordination in large and small movements. The objectives for learning in Physical Education seek to improve the way children move, ensuring they do so confidently and in a range of ways when negotiating spaces.
In Key Stage One, children are taught to develop their fundamental movement skills. In doing so, children become increasingly competent and confident when accessing a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination – both as individuals and as a collective. Children are encouraged to engage in competitive (both against themselves and others) and cooperative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.
In Key Stage Two, children should utilize and embed the broad range of skills learnt in key stage one and EYFS. By applying these in different ways, children will learn how to link a series of skills to make actions and sequences of movement. Opportunities are built into the curriculum to encourage children’s communication, collaboration and competition; further progressing their understanding of different physical activities whilst evaluating and recognizing their own successes.
In the I-Pod, children have a range of opportunities to take part in PE suited to their needs and within their year group. This enables children to develop their independence at an appropriate level. As pupils develop their skills, they are provided with opportunities to engage in competitions such as Boccia.
Throughout the school year our pupils take part in various sporting competitions and activities organised by The School Sports Partnership against other schools in the South Holderness Cluster.
Our pupils participate in swimming lessons at South Holderness Leisure Centre. The lessons take place during the Summer term of Y4 over a two week period. Through this programme of lessons, children are assessed against the National Curriculum programme of study relating to swimming and water safety and children are given certificates/badges at the end of the course.
In EYFS the pupils are given the opportunity to take part in Scooter Skills training, this is run by The East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Scooter Awareness Team. The training normally consists of a short road safety presentation in the classroom followed by an approximately 30 minute session on the playground where children will learn some safe scooting skills through fun activities.
In Y6 our pupils are given the opportunity to take part in Cycling Skills training, this is run by The East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Bikeability Road Safety Team. The training will last for eight hours spread over two full days. The course is outcome based and pupils will be assessed continually over the two days. Level 1 will be conducted on the playground and lasts for two hours. Level 2 will take place over the remaining six hours and will be on the road.
