Physical Education 2015 – 2016
Over the last academic year, the £8,850 funding was used to ensure PE has continued to develop. The use of specialised coaches to deliver lessons on a Monday afternoon has not only raised the profile of PE but also helped to improve staff confidence and skills. Both parents and children have reported that they are happy with the changes that have happened with PE over the last few years. The children enjoy PE. A strong foundation for PE is now in place and this can be further built on in the coming years. With a focus on fitness, the children are now aware of the impact that PE and sport have on their bodies. The staff have been given idea of how to teach fitness and monitor it within their class. The children have started to show measurable improvements in their fitness which will hopefully progress over the next year. The uptake of extra-curricular activities has increased with the following free clubs that have been offered over the course of the year:
- Tag rugby
- Y 5/6 Football
- Y3/4 Football
- High fives
- Lunch time friendship group
As well as this, the children have also been offered the following clubs for a minimal payment:
- Multi Skills
- R – Y4 football
The school has entered many competitions in the Hyndburn and Ribble Valley partnership, achieving success in many of these. New kits have been purchased and we now have new football and athletics kits, as well as hoodies and coats.
