Our vision for P.E. and School Sport
At Ecclesall, we believe that Physical Education experienced in a safe and supportive environment plays a vital part in the development of the whole child. We provide opportunities for children to build their physical co-ordination, fitness and social skills through a balance of individual, team, co-operative and competitive activities. We aim to promote the pleasure and enjoyment that can derive from physical activity, to enable children to lead a healthy, active lifestyle for the rest of their lives.
A varied range of lunch-time and after school clubs is provided:
|Lunch-time||Table TennisY5/6 Cross Country||Tennis||Y4 Badminton(from Jan. ’16)||Cheerleading||Y3/4 NetballY4 Cross Country|
|After-school||Y3/4Football||Y5/6 Football||Karate (also before school on Tuesday)||Hockey||Y5/6 Netball|
Sport Premium Funding
From September 2013, the government has been providing additional funding to improve the provision of PE and Sport in primary schools. Schools receive £8,000 per academic year plus £5 per child. Ecclesall received a total of £9795 for the academic year 2013-14 and the same amount for 2014-15.
Plans for 2015-16
Here is an outline of how we plan to spend our 2015-16 Sport Premium allocation:
- Through our subscription to the Points Learning Network, we employ an experienced sports development coach, Richard Mills, to work alongside class teachers to develop high quality PE, with a focus on games (multi-skills, indoor athletics, badminton, tri-golf and kwik cricket). Each block of teaching culminates in a competition / festival in which the whole year group participates.
- Richard will also run lunch-time clubs which complement the games skills children are learning in their PE lessons.
- Training will be provided for 12 Y6 children to become Sports Leaders. These leaders will then organise lunch-time games, and help to plan and run sports competitions and festivals.
- We will employ a specialist gymnastics teacher, Emmalouise Bennett, to work alongside the class teacher in PE lessons. Throughout the year, Emmalouise will work with every class in school.
- We will identify children who currently do not take part in any sport or organised physical activity outside PE lessons and set up appropriate initiatives, for example a Change4Life club.
- We will continue to involve as many children as possible in inter-school competitions, providing transport where necessary.
