The 2014 National Curriculum for PE aims to ensure that all children:
At Wincanton Primary School, our intent is:
Children at Wincanton Primary School receive 2 hours of quality first teaching by both teachers and external sports coaches provided by Premier Sports. Our PE programme incorporates a variety of sports to ensure all children develop the confidence, tolerance and the appreciation of their own and others’ strengths and weaknesses.
There are opportunities for children to engage in extra-curricular activities after school by both staff and Premier Sports. To increase participation, children were asked which clubs they would like to attend. There are also additional opportunities through our partnership with SASP to participate in competitive sport events with other local primary schools.
In the summer term, the children build upon their teamwork skills through non-competitive sports day in both KS1 and KS2, with KS2 also having a competitive competition focusing on track and field events.
EYFS also have their own sports day which link in with the ELG of their curriculum.
Year’s 4,5 and 6 take part in a 12 week swimming programme throughout the year at Wincanton Sports Centre taught by both staff at Wincanton Primary School and trained swimming coaches. Assessments and tracking of the children progress over these 12 weeks are collected and retained in preparation for the next year.
Within our lessons, children are taught about self-discipline and that to be successful you need to take ownership and responsibility of their own health and fitness. Our impact is therefore to motivate children to utilise these underpinning skills in an independent and effective way in order to live happy and healthy lives.
