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 Wednesday afternoons whilst Key Stage Two pupils have theirs on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.
With the closure of Abbots Bromley School our swimming provision has had to be moved to Thomas Alleynes. As a result year 3 & 4 pupils will attend the pool together for a six week programme during the Spring 1 term on a Friday afternoon.
For a full overview of our P.E. curriculum for 2019-20 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 are adding a competition element, “your personal best” to our activity programme to inspire active break/lunch times.
In addition we have continued to develope 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. 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.
