PE

 

Physical Education is very important at Garfield Primary School.  We provide a variety of opportunities for the pupils to take part in physical activities. Every child has 2 hours of PE a week, as well as being given the chance to take part in extra-curricular activities.

Children are taught to appreciate the importance of a healthy lifestyle and begin to understand how an active lifestyle affects their health, fitness and concentration. We encourage and promote good sportsmanship, fairness and respect. We continue these values when outside of school, taking part in local friendly matches, as well as competing against a number of schools in Merton competitions. We are always keen to try new sports and have recently added lacrosse to our curriculum across Years 3-6, as well as badminton and tennis to our after school clubs.

Our school offers a wide variety of free sports clubs including tag rugby, multi skills, netball, basketball and gymnastics. They are led by members of staff and are available for different age groups after school and at lunch time. We also have a number of clubs run by external coaches such as AFC football, Street Dance and Baby Street Dance, football and tennis.

We always encourage the children to challenge themselves in lessons, clubs or the competitions they take part in. Competition is a key part of PE at Garfield. Children have the opportunity to show their skills in order to be chosen for external matches. As well as this, clubs have the chance to play ‘friendlies’ against other schools in the local area.

Garfield Primary School PE Plan

The Government provides funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is allocated to primary school Headteachers. At Garfield Primary we received £9,729 this academic year. The areas of need were identified in order to decide where the money would be best spent.

Here is a summary of how the 2016-2017 PE premium money was spent. This breakdown highlights how the money has been spent, how much it has cost and its impact across the school.

We agree that the money must be used so that:

  1. All children benefit regardless of sporting ability.
  2. Children are given the opportunity to compete in advanced tournaments.
  3. Staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development.
  4. High quality PE is taught across the school.
