We have welcomed the Government’s announcement in June 2013 to provide additional funding for two years to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people.
Please see the section on 'Sports Premium' for a break down of how this funding is spent and the impact it is making.
Pupils have excellent opportunities to experience and learn a wide range of sports through PE. Children receive a minimum of two hours of PE each week in line with government standards. During this time they learn about striking and fielding, invasion, and net and wall games as well as athletics, dance, gymnastics and swimming.
Children have access to a wide variety of resources and teachers often adopt a cross-curricular approach to learning.
As the children move up the school there are more opportunities to be involved in inter-school competitions and events.
Children in Years 3 and 4 have weekly swimming sessions at Isleworth Swimming Pool, and children in Years 5 and 6 complete Cycling Proficiency Tests. Please see class pages for more information on these.
As with all subjects on the curriculum, each child’s achievements and attainment are assessed at the end of each unit. Additional support and challenges can be met through the numerous extra-curricular clubs provided via the extended learning curriculum. Children displaying a talent for a particular sport are encouraged to develop and improve their skills both within the school environment and at classes outside of school.
Throughout the school the standard of work produced in PE is excellent which is reflected in the inter school competitions we enter, where we hold strong finishing positions.
