At Woolpit Primary Academy we use the complete PE scheme. This interactive on-line resource, which enables both specialists and non-specialist teachers of PE, to plan and implement high quality teaching within physical education. It currently comprises of over 700 suggested sequences of learning for Foundation, KS1 and KS2, a resource that is constantly growing and developing. It provides opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness." (National Curriculum, 2014)
We use the Complete PE scheme to map out and build our PE curriculum in line with the whole-school long term curriculum and overarching themes. .
At Woolpit Primary Academy we also work in partnership with the Gipping Valley & Thurston School Sport Partnership. This enables us to have sports coaches coming into school to support the teaching of the PE curriculum and provides training for staff, in order to deliver high quality PE lessons . Our sports coaches also run lunch time and after-school clubs, that add to the time-table of clubs currently being offered by school staff.
PE and sports premium
The school sport and activity action plan sets out the government’s commitment to ensuring that children and young people have access to at least 60 minutes of sport and physical activity per day. It recommends 30 minutes of this is delivered during the school day (in line with the Chief Medical Officers guidelines which recommend an average of at least 60 minutes per day across the week).
The PE and sport premium can help primary schools to achieve this commitment, providing primary schools with £320 million of government funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, physical activity and sport offered through their core budgets. It is allocated directly to schools, so they have the flexibility to use it in the way that works best for their pupils.
