Welcome to the new dedicated page about all the sport activities taking place at the Richard Clarke First School.
P.E. at our School
Our pupils have two hours of timetabled P.E. every week. Key Stage One pupils have their programmes delivered on Monday and Tuesday afternoons whilst Key Stage Two pupils have theirs on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons.
Swimming is a major part of our P.E. curriculum and this is provided at Abbots Bromley School on Thursday mornings in Autumn 1, Spring 1 and Summer 2. For a full overview of our P.E. curriculum for 2018-19 please see the link below.
In 2019, we have achieved an award for excellence in PE.
Sports Premium Spend
One of the key performance indicators for the sports premium spend this year is to engage all pupils in regular physical activity. The Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that primary school children undertake at least 30mins of physical activity a day in school. With this in mind we have designed and installed a fitness trail on the main playground to inspire active break/lunch times.
In addition we have developed physical science, maths and literacy areas in the school courtyard for our staff to use during lesson time and for our sports leaders/ambassadors to use at active lunch breaks with Mrs Care. By investing in these projects we will not only see increased physical activity in our pupils but it will also provide opportunities to enhance both numeracy & literacy standards as a tool for whole school improvement.
The School Games is a programme designed to keep competitive sport at the heart of schools and provide more young people with the opportunity to compete and achieve their personal best.
The School Games, which is funded by Sport England and delivered by the Youth Sport Trust, is a government led programme designed to deliver competitive school sport to all young people.
