WHAT IS PHYSICAL EDUCATION?

Physical education combines dance, gymnastics, games, athletics, swimming and outdoor adventurous activities to provide a broad and balanced range of experiences to enable children to face challenges and attain goals.  It is intended to help pupils’ development of individual, paired and group work, in co-operative, collaborative and competitive situations to cater for the strengths, preferences and needs of every pupil, regardless of their age, gender, cultural or ethnic background.

AIMS

Our aims in teaching PE are:

•             To promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles, so pupils know the effects of exercise on the body, and the appreciation of safe exercising.

•             To develop social co-operation and positive attitudes towards physical education and to compete with a sense of fair play.

•             To provide an opportunity for children to develop skills as an individual, in pairs and in small groups, by repeating and refining actions and to perform with increasing control, co-ordination and fluency.

•             To provide children with an opportunity to achieve personal goals, including the ability to communicate and respond positively towards others.

•             To promote an understanding of safe practice, and develop a sense of responsibility toward their own and others safety and well-being.

 

The Daily Mile

The aim of The Daily Mile is to improve the physical, social, emotional and mental health and wellbeing of our children – regardless of age, ability or personal circumstances.

The Daily Mile is a social physical activity, with children running or jogging – at their own pace – in the fresh air with friends. Children can occasionally walk to catch their breath, if necessary, but should aim to run or jog for the full 15 minutes.

We want every child to have the opportunity to do The Daily Mile at St Mary’s RC Primary school, and all classes will be doing it 3 times a week.

The Daily Mile Works!

  •    It takes place in 15 minutes, with most children averaging a mile, or more, each day.

  •    Children run outside in the fresh air – and the weather is a benefit, not a barrier.

  •     It’s social, non-competitive and fun.

  •     The children return to class ready to learn.

  •     It helps to improve fitness and achieve a healthy weight.

  •     It encourages children to be aware of their health.

  •     It’s fully inclusive; every child, whatever their circumstances, age or ability, succeeds at The Daily Mile.

During the Autumn term each class received a map of London with 15 different London landmarks on it. Everytime they take part in the daily mile they move to a new landmark until they reach where they began. When they have completed the map each child will receive a daily mile sticker. Who will be the first class to finish?

WHAT IS THE SPORTS PREMIUM?

The Government is spending over £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. Funding has been allocated to schools based on the number of primary-aged pupils (aged 5 to 11 years) as of the annual school census of January 2013. Schools must spend this additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport to give primary aged pupils the opportunity to develop a healthy lifestyle, but schools have the freedom to choose how they do this.

St Mary's Catholic Primary School is spending the allocated money to develop the teaching of PE and up-skill the subject leader during the academic year 2019-2020.

Present and Future Plans

Healthy Active Lifestyles
Here at St Mary’s, we pride ourselves with having our school as active as possible with many activities available for pupils and ample opportunities for all to take part.

Non Stop Action:

In addition to the one hour lesson taught by our teaching staff, we have experienced specialist coaches from Non-Stop Action who provide the 2nd hour of PE teaching. These coaches focus primarily on outside sports and games and teach the children an abundance of skills and rules of the sports being studied. A coach from Non-Stop Action also runs an after school football club for years 4 and 3. 

JJ Premier Sports

A coach from JJ Premier Sports runs an after school football club twice weekly for years 5 and 6. In addition, years 1 and 2 have the opportunity to take part in after school multi-skills sessions led by JJ Premier Sports.

 

Netball Club:

A midday Netball club is being run by Miss Mullahy once per week on a Thursday during lunch.

Swimming

Years 4 and 5 have the opportunity to learn, develop or refine their swimming skills (based on their individual abilities) through the participation in the borough’s swimming classes. Year 5 children participate in their swimming lessons from September through to the Spring Half Term and Year 4 commence after the Spring Half Term to the end of the year. 

Lunchtimes:

During lunchtimes, supervised and structured activities are carried out by pupils under the watchful eyes of teaching assistants and the coach from JJ Premier Sports. The children are encouraged to take-part in additional daily physical activities. 

 

Break-times

Break-times are structured similarly to lunchtimes and children are actively encouraged, by the staff on duty, to keep active. There is an abundance of opportunities for the children to be physically engaged in activity; from the outside climbing wall, the climbing frame or the many games/large musical instruments which are available to them. 

 

Pupils and parents are regularly encouraged to walk, cycle or scoot to school in our newsletters. Children know the importance of choosing to travel to school by other means than car- they are aware of the health benefits but also of the environmental benefits.     
The school has a physical activity policy which is adhered to.                                                                                                                                   

Using PE As A Tool For Whole School Development
There has been a significant improvement in pupils’ behaviour and engagement at both break and lunchtimes due to the fact that they are now actively engaged in various games or activities. This has led to an improvement in pupils’ concentration, commitment and self esteem in the classroom. There is a noticeable sense of fair-play being exhibited during competitions also. 
These positive impacts have led to staff confidence and morale to be improved and parents and teachers’ relationships to be strengthened. 
The attendance of pupils has been improved as is reflected in our newsletters.

 

Professional Learning and the rest of our PE team
Our teaching staff are both competent and confident when delivering lessons. With the inclusion of special sports coaches who deliver one of two of our lessons to each class, pupils have access to high quality professional learning. The pupils are not the only ones learning here but with the inclusion of the specialist coaches the teachers’ skills are further sharpened and refined. Pupils are always motivated and engaged in lessons, since some of them are given the opportunity to take part in leading parts of lessons.
Pupils are assessed on the skills which they have learnt at the end of each unit. Units last for a half term and in that time the children will learn, develop and hone the skills which they have learnt as well as their ability to play the game and follow the rules. The children are assessed in line with the new Assessment Without Levels scheme and are deemed to be either under target, on target or above target. 
 

A Broad Offer To All Pupils
At St Mary’s, pupils who are less active and the higher ability groups, are targeted by the teachers and specialist coaches. They are put into smaller selective groups and are taught skills according to their ability.
A range of sports and activities are available to the children including; football, tag rugby, netball, dance, cycling, swimming, volleyball, basketball and athletics. These are provided by both the teaching staff and the specialist coaches.
Pupils are consulted on opportunities that are available outside of the curriculum through the student council. The school also offers links to outside sports clubs and organisations which offer services after and before school and also during the school holidays.
 
Competition For All
At St Mary’s, the children regularly compete against one another during their PE lessons as well as during their club time for being ‘a personal best’ as well as ‘being the best;. They also take part in the borough’s football, athletics and netball competitions against other schools in the borough through the local Schools Games Organisers (SGO). The children love to put their skills to the test and to work together as a team against other competitors.

Fixtures and Results

Tuesday 17th September 2019

St Mary’s 2 – 4 George Spicer

 

On Tuesday the 17th of September St Mary’s year 6 played their first football match in the Enfield schools league against George Spicer primary school. The children had only had one practice before the match but felt happy and confident about the upcoming game. They played well and as hard as they could but ultimately were beaten 4-2. Even though the children were disappointed with the score line they were looking forward to playing the next match.

 

Tuesday 8th October 2019

St Mary’s – Suffolk

St Mary’s – BHP

 

Due to year 6 being on PGL and the school unable to rearrange the next two fixtures against Suffolks Primary School and Bush Hill Park Primary School we decided to play the next two matches with year 5. Years 5 had also only had a few training sessions and were not expecting to being playing any matches this early in the school year but like year 6 were looking forward to the game. In the first game they played incredibly well and took an early lead and then scored again five minutes later. But at half time Suffolks showed their strength and experience and St Marys lost 4-2.

In the third game St Marys came up against a team that technically were very good and were much bigger and stronger than them and while they gave 110% effort they could not find a way to stop Bush Hill Park and were ultimately beaten 5-0. Although upset that they lost the team understood that they were beaten by a better team and that when they’re in year 6 that things would be different and are looking forward to the next match.
