ATHLETE VISIT 2018

We were very fortunate to have a visit from Darren Challis who has competed at the Invictus Games. He worked with the children to complete a circuit of activities and then gave an inspiration talk to the children explaining that you can anything you want if you put your mind to it. We all had a fabulous time and would like to thank Darren for coming to visit us and hope that he will be able to make it to our Sports Day in June!

The vision for PE at Barming Primary School

To become confident, healthy and active children with skills and enjoyment across a broad range of sports and activities.

 

Playing sport helps to keep people healthy and is good for communities. Playing sport at school or in a local club is also the first step to competition at the highest level, which helps improve the United Kingdom's reputation as a sporting nation, and contributes to economic growth.

 

But when people leave school they often stop playing sports, which means people can’t fulfil their sporting potential, and can lead to a less healthy lifestyle. The Government want to get more people playing sport safely from a young age, and help them keep playing sport throughout their life, no matter what their economic or social background. 

 

At Barming Primary School we want to ensure our children enjoy PE and provide a variety of ways to support them to achieve this!

 

We have even zoned our playgrounds so that at breaktimes and lunchtimes the children can still play football and all the games we know they really love. We even have Sports Ambassadors that lead the way with this!

 

Clothing Required for Physical Education: 

 

The clothing requirements for PE are as follows; each child needs a plain House colour round neck T-shirt (No logos or prints) and a pair of red shorts. The shorts should not ​be the modern baggy or overlong type as these can be dangerous on PE apparatus. Football shirts are not acceptable for PE. For indoor lessons your child will need trainers with non-marking soles. For all outdoor lessons your child will need another pair of trainers. For safety reasons we cannot allow a child to take part in outdoor PE wearing plimsolls or shoes. 

 

It is necessary to have some form of warmer clothing to go over shorts and T-shirts for the outdoor winter games sessions. Preferably this will be a tracksuit, but a sports sweatshirt is also acceptable. 

 

Lastly the whole kit can be kept safely together in a simple large cloth bag, clearly marked with the child's name, and fastened with a draw string. We cannot stress enough how important it is to have your entire child's PE clothing named.  

 

Long hair must be tied back at all times before your child can participate in P.E lessons; this is due to Health and Safety reasons.    

 

Jewellery:
 
Jewellery is not to be worn in school unless for a religious purpose. In this case the school should have a letter from the parents on file. In those cases where a child's ears have been pierced, then small studs are worn and these should be removed for PE, games and swimming lessons. Children should not wear studs to school unless they are able to remove and replace them by themselves. If you wish to have your child's ears pierced, please note that it is best done at the start of the summer holiday, as the studs need to stay in the ear continuously for six weeks. In this way, the ears would be healed by September.

Current PE Policy

Current PE Overview 2018 to 2019

PE and Sport Premium Funding - What is it?

 

Schools receive PE and Sport Premium Funding based on the number of pupils in Years 1 to 6.

 

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport.

This means that we should use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.
  • develop sports participation and attainment

 

There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  • the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • increased participation in competitive sport

 

 

The effect of the sport's premium on pupil’s PE and sports participation and attainment at Barming Primary School

We aim that with the sports premium we have received this year, sporting participation and attainment will rise. Our aim is to introduce a variety of after school clubs to different year groups and achieve a high turnout for each sports club. Further to this we are hoping to have visits from specialist physical activity specialists such as Kidz Fit to engage and encourage children to participate in sports outside of school as well as inside school. We have already been lucky to have a visit from Invictus Games Athlete Darren Challis who gave an inspirational talk to the school about sport and PE. 

 

How we will make sure that these improvements are sustainable

To ensure that these developments are sustainable time is being spent on upskilling teachers with the support of PASS (Physical Activity Sports Specialists). We have also spent the sports premium on ensuring a good quality PE curriculum is in place and that staff feel comfortable teaching the different requirement. Further money has been spent on improving the resources and outdoor opportunities for all children to become more physically active and enjoy PE for the future and not just this year. 

 

Ofsted Inspections

Ofsted assesses how primary schools use the primary PE and sport premium. They measure its impact on pupil outcomes, and how effectively governors hold school leaders to account for this.

PE and Sport Premium Impact Document
