The PE and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. Schools must spend the funding to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils, but they are free to choose the best way of using the money. Schools receiving PE and sports premium funding must publish details of the way in which PE and sports premium funding is spent.
At St. Gregory’s Catholic Primary School, we are committed to the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity and helping them to lead healthy and active lives.
Objectives of spending in 2018-2019:
We believe at St. Gregory’s that our actions in increasing participation and broadening the choice of activities on offer will help children to have a more positive attitude and mindset to PE and sport that we hope will become a valuable learning skill through their lives.
At St. Gregory’s Catholic Primary School, every pupil participates in at least the minimum 2 hours of physical activity per week. Pupils across Key Stage One and Two take art in Games, Gymnastics, Dance and Swimming Lessons, planned and delivered by Physical Education Specialists. Lessons are fun and challenging yet offer structure to provide progression for all pupils regardless of ability. Lessons provide a balance between healthy competition and skill acquisition, allowing for development of social and emotional skills such as teambuilding and problem solving, as well as widening their physical abilities.
Gymnastics and Dance
In Key Stage One, pupils have been investigating a range of movements including rolls and jumps using different speed and levels. Pupils have learned to use space safely working both on the floor, mats and on apparatus. In Key Stage Two, pupils have been exercising balance and control through performing rolls and jumps using different speed and levels. Pupils have created sequences of controlled movement working both on the floor, mats and on apparatus. Pupils across the school have the chance to take part in creative dance lessons taught by a dance specialist.
Key Stage One pupils have been exploring boxes of equipment and learning to work and share. They have been developing their own game ideas and discovering different equipment. Key Stage Two have experienced a variety of different activities including football, basketball, netball, handball, tag rugby, athletics, dodgeball, hockey, tri-gold, tennis, cricket and outdoor adventurous activity. Pupils have participated in lessons which follow a 4-part structure including warm-up, skill acquisition, modified game and cool down, reminding them of why we take part in PE and its importance for our health. Year 6 leaders are also encouraged to lead part of the warm up to increase their knowledge of the importance of warming up. Lessons continually assess pupil progress and allow for flexibility throughout, ensuring all pupils are stretched and challenged.
Pupils at St. Gregory’s Catholic Primary school have access to high quality swimming lessons. Together this gives our pupils every chance to swim the required 25 metres by the time they complete Year 6. Through the success of swimming 100% of Year 6 have already achieved National. Also the success of the swimming team keeps improving with St. Gregory’s pupils achieving 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in galas, resulting in them representing South Warwickshire.
Correct PE kit is very important both for reasons of safety and hygiene.
Each child will need a kit, which consists of:
A named PE bag
Navy shorts or trousers
Blue round neck t-shirt with school badge
EYFS & KS1 - well fitted plimsolls for indoors and trainers for outside
KS2 - well fitted trainers for indoors and outside
NOTE: All items of kit need to be clearly labelled with the child's name
At St. Gregory's, we strive to make provision for children to take part in a variety of clubs that are supervised and structured by staff members and external agencies. Throughout the year, the clubs are changed and developed since many of them are produced in consultation with the children; taking into account their interests and needs.
