At Lady Katherine Leveson Church of England Primary School, we teach P.E. to all children, whatever their ability. P.E. forms part of the school curriculum policy, to provide a broad and balanced education to all children. Through our P.E. teaching, we provide learning opportunities that enable all pupils to make progress. We do this by setting achievable learning activities and challenges, and responding to each child’s individual needs.
Health and Safety:
The general teaching requirement for health and safety applies in this subject. We encourage the children to consider their own safety and the safety of others at all times. We expect them to change for PE into the agreed clothing for each activity area.
Required clothing: yellow school T–shirt, navy shorts, blue round neck jumper, royal blue tracksuit bottoms, plimsolls (indoor games) and trainers, with socks (outdoor games).
Out of School Activities and Specialised Coaching:
We strive to provide children with the opportunities to develop their skills and maximise their enjoyment for physical activity through a range of out of school activities. These include clubs such as football, netball, running, rounders, dance, cricket, racquets and ice skating.
We also provide children across the school with opportunities for specialised coaching, both within curriculum time and as extra curricular activities. Children from Years 2 and 3 go for regular swimmming lessons. From this children gain a high quality of sporting activities, have the opportunity to work with and compete with other local primary schools. It also provides the opportunity for children to join extra curricular activities at local clubs.
Some of the clubs we run:
Running club run by Mrs Turpin (after school on a Friday)
Football club run by Footiebugs (after school on a Thursday)
Ice skating club run by Miss Ensor and Mrs Ellgood (To be arranged)
Dance club by Animated dance (after school on a Tuesday)
Karate club rub by Max (after school on a Monday)
Government P.E. funding scheme
The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013
to 2014 and 2014 to 2015 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary
schools. This funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture,
Media and Sport. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in
Funding for schools will be calculated by reference to the number of primary-aged pupils (between
the ages of 5 and 11), as recorded in the annual schools census in January 2013.
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they
will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
Please see our Policy of sport funding to see how we will make an impact in our school.
As a school we want our children to take part in as many atheletic and sports event as possible, recently we had the opportunity of having Meghan Beesley, an Olympic 400m hurdler to come and visit our school. The children took part in a fitness circuit with Meghan and raised money- what a fun, fabulous event!
