PE Overview and Structure

Resources

A recent audit of the available resources has been conducted. Subsequently needs were identified and resources purchased with the aim of improving and extending provision within the PE curriculum, throughout the school. For example, a gym ladder was purchased to extend the provision in gymnastics and increase motivation and participation; a variety of new balls were purchased to ensure that every child is able to access individual learning and to ensure maximum participation in all parts of lessons with no waiting time; dodge balls were purchased to allow children to participate in a sport that is new to them.

Dance and Gymnastics are taught to each year group on a weekly basis by the school’s Sports’ Coach, Liam Booth.  (30-45 minutes each lesson.)

Each class receives one session of Outdoor Games per week, also taught by our Sports Coach.  Teachers are expected to attend these lessons to facilitate CPD.

Key Stage 2 classes go swimming at Grand Central Pool weekly for at least one term per year. There is scope for children in need of additional tuition to be able to swim to attend additional lessons in school time.

All children have access to a minimum of 2 hours curriculum PE per week.

Lunchtime Clubs and Activities

During lunch hour the school Sports’ Coach has introduced a series of sports’ activities that are accessible to children of all ages and abilities throughout the school.  The aim is to encourage additional sporting activity and encourage fair and collaborative play. Sports Leaders from Y5 have been appointed and given delegated responsibility for setting up and overseeing the activities on a daily basis.

PLT/SSCO

Liam Booth represents St Thomas’ as the school’s Primary Link Teacher (PLT).  In this role he attends cluster meetings for the Stockport School feeder schools, and the school has access to additional coaching and inter-school sporting events and activities.  Attendees are given opportunity to network and become involved in arranging cluster-wide events.  Relevant feedback from these meetings is shared with staff verbally.  Regular, school specific meetings are held with our designated SSCO, Debbie McKeever from Stockport School.  The school commits a significant percentage of our Sports Grant to “buy-back” into this scheme at Level 2.

Extra-curricular activities

School presently offers a variety of extra-curricular sports club with the Sports’ Coach daily. These clubs are offered to a variety of age groups on a termly/half-termly basis.  There is a timetable available that covers the whole year.

Tracking

Assessments are ongoing during lessons and are carried out by Liam, who also offers ongoing CPD on assessing PE during lesson time to teaching staff. Teachers are given a copy of termly assessments which are class and sport specific which is then shared with parents/carers at parents/carers evenings.

Informal verbal feedback is shared with parents/carers on collection at the end of the clubs.

Monitoring

The Sports’ Coach has regular liaison with the SLT and works alongside the Deputy Headteacher and the PE Leader in school on all aspects of PE provision.  The DHT has observed PE lessons and offered verbal feedback.

Registers are kept to enable Senior Leaders to monitor how many children access extra-curricular activities, and whether there has been an increase in the number of children taking part in PE.  Evidence shows that participation in extra-curricular sports has increased significantly over the past three years.
