At St. Joseph’s we have developed physically active pupils who enjoy PE and who are keen to participate in a wide range of sports, dance and physical activity within and beyond those offered during curriculum time.
We have used this money to ensure a lasting legacy, which means that the quality of P.E. and Sport at St. Joseph Primary School is enriched for years to come. In 2013-14 and 2014-15, the Governors targeted PE to:
- Extend opportunities for pupils to participate in high quality sporting activities during lunch times. These sessions are led by a qualified P.E. coach and FUNDA who have trained lunchtime staff to lead a range of active sessions and provide appropriate resources.
- Extend opportunities for pupils to participate in high quality sporting activities at clubs after school. This is in addition to the wide range of clubs currently on offer.
- Plan professional development opportunities for staff. Staff have participated in a programme of support where they work alongside the P.E.coach and dance tutor during the delivery of high quality P.E. and dance sessions to support their own skills in the teaching of P.E. and active living.
- Extend opportunities for pupils to compete in a range of competitions. We have implemented support from a specialist sports co-ordinator to develop competitive sport within the cluster of schools, including the local high school. Furthermore, our sports coach has arranged competitions with schools in the local area.
- Enhance resource provision in school. We have bought new equipment so the children can experience further sporting activities. These include basketball nets, football goals and a range of active play equipment. Year 5 take part in weekly swimming lessons and 6 take extend their swimming skills further through a ten programme.
