Physical Education

Recovery Physical Education Statement

At St. Norbert’s Primary school we consider Physical Education to be a very important part of every school day. It is essential that everyone has at least one hour’s daily physical activity in order to maintain a healthy well-being balance. As part of our recovery curriculum plan for Physical education we have embraced a greater emphasis on restoring children’s well-being and ‘feel-good’ factor through a range of physical activities throughout the day and across each week. We promote physical exercise throughout our school day’s enabling all children to take part in mini-exercise bursts of 10-15 minutes; complete refresh brain breaks or even take a stroll around the daily mile. All physical activity is important and we advocate that this is coupled with both a healthy sleep pattern for your children and a healthy balanced diet. Physical exercise helps our bodies sleep at bedtime and recharge our energy levels in order to make good choices, learn effectively and enjoy life. Exercise promotes chemicals in our brains which make us feel good. We take time to share and discuss our feelings before and after exercise allowing time for all pupils to engage, share and relax through physical activity.

Not everyone enjoys active sports however, there are many different forms of exercise we share at St. Norbert’s which allow children to engage, develop skills and feel success. Keeping active is a great opportunity for all our children to share and have fun – playing Covid safe games which raise the heart rate and deepen the breathing ensure that the ‘Feel-good’ endorphins are released and we can all have fun together. We encourage all our children to be creative to get your heart pumping fast!

As part of our Physical education curriculum plan we have linked this through a Healthy Eating program, sharing ideas and information to encourage children to be healthier in their food choices. There is a saying that we are what we eat – the food we eat can affect our mood and often how we behave so we enthuse children to try to eat healthily and enjoy a range of food groups, in turn this enables a fully-active and happy child to engage in learning at school. We also encourage all children to Stay hydrated – drinking lots of water is also good for you, it is recommended that you drink 6 – 8 glasses each day and all children are able to bring their drinks bottles into the classrooms and keep them in easy reach on their desks. Physical Education and engagement in exercise which raises the heart rate enables your children to partake fully in the range of activities the school day has to offer.

National Curriculum Programme of Study

Intent

At St. Norbert’s, we strive to create a culture which aims to inspire an active generation to enjoy PE, encourage each other and achieve. We provide a safe and supportive environment for children to flourish in a range of different physical activities which is essential in supporting their physical, emotional, spiritual, social and moral development.

At St. Norbert’s we offer a dynamic, varied and stimulating program of activity to ensure that all children progress physically through an inspirational, unique and fully inclusive PE curriculum. We encourage all children to develop their understanding of the way in which they can use their body, equipment and apparatus safely yet imaginatively to achieve their personal goals. All children have the opportunity to enjoy being physically active, maintain a healthy lifestyle and using the medium of sport, increase their self-esteem. We aspire for children to adopt a positive mind-set and believe that anything can be achieved with determination and resilience.

The aim of Physical Education is to promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles. Children are taught to observe and produce the conventions of fair play, honest competition and good sporting behaviour as individual participants, team members and spectators. Thus embedding life-long values such as co-operation, collaboration and equity of play.

We provide opportunities for children to learn how to stay safe by starting swimming lessons in Year 4 and continuing until children have become confident in the water, knowing how to keep safe and also meet the National Curriculum requirements of swimming 25m by the end of Year 6.

Implementation

At St. Norbert’s, our PE curriculum is varied and long-term plans ensure that we meet the requirements of the National Curriculum. All pupils receive at least two hours of high-quality PE using the vast outside space or school hall.  All children have a weekly PE lesson with their class teacher and a termly rotation of Dance Lessons with a qualified Dance Teacher. Children in KS2 have a weekly ‘Maths on The Move’  session to develop cross curricular links between Maths and Physical Education. During these sessions, children receive expert coaching to develop fundamental skills through a variety of activities and games suitable to their key stage.

Our PE curriculum is sequenced precisely to ensure progression of knowledge and skills throughout a child’s primary education, thus enabling children to build upon prior experiences and apply these fluently, with confidence. Children also have the opportunity to further these skills at after school sports clubs thus making club links within the community and development officers for specific sports. At St. Norbert’s we endeavour to provide a broad range of activities based on children’s interests and new initiatives.

Inter and intra sports competitions are a particular strength of the school and we would warmly welcome you to admire our collection of trophies. Although we enjoy the competitive nature of sport, we also appreciate and encourage the importance of children ‘having a go’ and promote positive experiences of being physically active and not always participate to win. We have an inclusive approach and value the importance of physical and mental well-being.

Children take part in a range of invasion, striking & fielding or net & wall games, we promote imagination and creativity in gymnastics and dance as well as provide opportunities for athletics using both indoor and outdoor environments plus outdoor and adventurous activities. Pupils are encouraged to take part in after school clubs and have the opportunity to compete against other schools. In KS2, children go on a residential course for outdoor activities in Year 4. Children have swimming lessons in Year 4 and continue to develop these skills throughout Lent and Pentecost. A further series of ‘Booster’ sessions are delivered to Year 6 in order to achieve their water confidence.

Physical Education is fundamental in developing healthy lifestyles in young people and at St Norbert’s we provide a wide array of opportunities to develop this and sporting skills outside of the normal curriculum time. Regular extra-curricular clubs are very popular and offer a wide variety of sports, including: Gymnastics (KS1), Girls and Boys Football;, Netball, Dance, Cricket, Rounders, Bench Ball, Dodge Ball and Athletics. 

Playtimes are an important part of our pupils being happy, healthy and ready to learn. We have well-staffed and equipped playground, a sports field, an adventure trim-trail, skipping ropes and an Outdoor Area. Also within our vibrant EYFS area we have new balance bikes; trundle wheeled toys; apparatus for balancing and games bags which are all designed to provide opportunities for children to develop and improve fundamental skills using various body parts.

To develop leadership and communication skills, children in Years 5 and 6 children can apply to become a Young Sports Leader which is a responsible role in encouraging younger children to learn how to play collaborative games, respecting rules and to be as active as possible during playtimes. Children selected are positive role-models for younger members of the school, organising lunchtime games and assisting with annual sports days.

At St Norbert’s we recognise the importance of being physically active throughout the school day so to reduce sedentary learning, the whole school embraced the ‘Daily Mile’ which is thoroughly enjoyed by both pupils and staff; children are fully engaged and enthused. Throughout the day classes have the option to walk the Daily Mile alongside ‘GoNoodle’ class based activity breaks. Teachers often log onto ‘GoNoodle’ throughout the day, linking the active breaks to aspects of their learning. 

Impact

To fulfil our vision by inspiring a generation, at St Norbert’s we motivate children to participate in a variety of sports which are engaging and fun. We inspire children to instinctively utilise skills and knowledge acquired during PE lessons, encouraging them to take responsibility for their own health and fitness thus developing a love of sport leading to a happy and healthy life.
