PE and Sport Premium
PE at Heatherley
We are committed to giving all our children every opportunity to achieve the highest of standards in all that they do. Our vision aims to provide all children with a broad, high quality and relevant physical education. Through a well-structured and progressive school curriculum we enable all children to develop and challenge their knowledge, skill and understanding. Our curriculum ensures skills are developed through the following topics: dance, invasion games, gymnastics, outdoor and adventurous activity, swimming, athletics, net and wall games and striking and fielding games. In addition to this, it is essential that children develop an understanding of a healthy lifestyle and make connections between physical health and a healthy mind with the vision that children will continue to adopt a healthy lifestyle into their adult life. We aim to teach this through our balance of individual, team, co-operative, competitive and creative activities cater for individual pupils’ needs and abilities. The PE scheme of work progressively builds key knowledge, skills and techniques which, combined with varied and flexible teaching styles, provides stimulating, challenging and enjoyable learning opportunities for pupils.
Throughout school, children have the access to enter competitions from swimming galas to boccia tournaments. We support sporting achievements in school in class assemblies, and whole school celebration assemblies. We also share success on our website by including ‘Supporting Talent’ where we recognise children achieving incredible sporting achievements inside and outside of school. Children have time to consolidate PE skills during play times.
We provide a variety of trips to support the national curriculum. In KS2 children go on residentials where they take part in adventurous activities for example: rock climbing, canoeing and bouldering. In year 3, the children attend a Royal Ballet demonstration to set high aspirations for the children when they are completing the Primary Steps Programme and make children want to achieve a place on The Primary Steps after school programme. We have several children who attend this club. We also go on PE trips to promote sports to all children. Last year we took thirty KS2 children to the EIS where the children took part in curling, volleyball and met members of team GB. This day helped build children's confidence in sport and provided them with opportunity.
