PE and Games at Kenmore Park

Each class is allocated at least two sessions of PE and games each week with the exception of Year 5 pupils who attend a regular swimming session for the full academic year. On top of this the school offers a variety of lunchtime and after school clubs with a sports bias. These include, multisport, football, dodgeball, cricket, Gifted and talented group, fencing, change 4 life, gymnastics, dance. We do participate in local competitions with other schools which include, football tournaments and athletics. We also have very good links with our local secondary school, Park High, who not only support our activities but also allows their pupils to fulfil their GCSE sports leadership programme. We also regularly run a whole school sports today to which parents are invited which allows us to promote healthy schools agenda with every family.

The school is also used by two supplementary schools at the weekend. These children also have access to our sporting facilities.

What has sports premium allowed us to do.

Sports premium has allowed us to have a more strategic approach to PE and Games throughout the school. This has resulted in increased pupil participation and embed high quality provision. It also allows us to have innovative sports provision, e.g. Change4life club, fencing club and karate. This stimulates the interest of pupils. In our change4life club older Year 6 pupils are encouraged to become mentors to the younger pupils and to not only encourage them in the session, but also in the playground.

Previously we have only been able to afford Year 5 pupils to attend swimming lessons for one term. Since the introduction of Sports premium we have been able to increase the number of sessions that pupils attend so that they are able to attend for the full academic year. The impact of this is that many more pupils are achieving the national curriculum standard of 25 metres unaided swimming.

Impact

Over 120 pupils take part in additional activities both at lunchtime and after school. Many of these pupils are attractive to the innovative provisos. For example, we have introduced ‘Disco Club’, at lunchtime to encourage active play. The only thing that limits more clubs taking place is the physical space of the school grounds.

encourage team work and co-operation and ensures that our outdoor education requirements are met.

Without Sports premium we could meet the needs of G + T pupils through additional PE / Games sessions.

We are currently investigating if it is possible to team up with some of the private schools in the area so that our pupils may have access to their facilities.

All pupils take part in PE / Games activities and any pupils who have a disability are catered for in those sessions. The schools ethos is very inclusive and the school will provide extra provision for any pupils that need extra support.

PE is mainly taken by specialist staff who are up to date with their current practice through a range of professional training.

Future Plans

  • We would like to increase the number of competitions that we enter
  • We want to increase girls participation in after school clubs
  • We are investigating the possibility of having more parental participation in physical activities to promote well-being.
