Through providing a balance of individual, team, co-operative and competitive activities our PE curriculum caters for children with a variety of abilities and needs.
We want to promote the pleasure and enjoyment that pupils can gain from physical activity and to enable them to lead a healthy, active lifestyle for the rest of their lives.
Physical education provides opportunities for the children to be:
At Broughton Infant School we believe that physical education develops pupils’ physical competence and confidence. Our PE sessions are held by class teachers as well a weekly class session with a coach from Hercules Sports. The Hercules Sports coaches also support the professional development for our staff to enhance their teaching in PE. We also have a Zumba teacher who rotates her teaching with one class over each half term. In these sessions the children experience dancing and music that comes from many different countries: a very cross curricular, energetic session! We also celebrate children’s out of school sporting achievements in our regular weekly assembly.
The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - will be allocated to primary school head teachers. This funding is ring-fenced and, therefore, can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
To see how we at Broughton Infant have spent and plan to spend our budget for 2016-17 please see the Statement below.
