Physical Education at East Wold CE Primary School

School Vision:

At East Wold we believe all children should take a full active part in sports and know how this relates to a healthy lifestyle. Every child will leave our school physically literate, and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

Physical Education at East Wold is a very important part of the curriculum and clubs at the school. Children take part in a wide range of competitions and activities through the Wolds Sports Partnership.  Despite the school’s small size, we successfully compete against much bigger schools in our local cluster, which is a testament to the ongoing commitment to health, sport and fitness across our school.

School Objective:

To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools against 5 key indicators:

  1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles.
  2. The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement.
  3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.
  4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.
  5. Increased participation in competitive sport.

The Primary Sports Premium continues to help develop the PE and sports activities that our school already offers. It is helping to make improvements that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.

Examples at our school are as follows:

  • hiring qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
  • providing existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • introducing new sports or activities and encouraging more pupils to take up sport
  • taking part in sport competitions
  • running sports activities with other schools
  • running lunch time and after school clubs
  • working closely with Wolds School Sports Partnership
  • providing transport costs to fixtures, allowing pupils to attend many sporting events
  • working across our federation

During the school day, children regularly take part in active learning (for example, get-fit counting in EYFS and KS1 and Activ8te throughout school). Swimming is important at our school and each class enjoys three 6-week blocks of swimming lessons at the Meridian Centre in Louth each year from Reception to Year 6.  Often our children go on to successful Club swimming.  In the summer term of each year, we hold a School Gala at John Spendluffe College’s pool, which attracts a high level of participation from pupils in every year group. We are fortunate to have a local specialist PE instructor who takes PE sessions in each class every week, as well as running a lunchtime ‘Legacy challenge’ and afterschool club.  Other specialist coaches, for instance, cricket coaches from local clubs, are invited to work with our children.  A large number of our children are members of the village cricket club, which runs on Friday evenings during the summer term.  This caters for children from Reception to Year 6 and over the years, pupils have been very successful in local matches. There are a variety of after school sports clubs over the year.
