At Gloucester Road Nursery and Primary School we follow the REAL PE Scheme of Work for our Physical Education curriculum and the Primary National Curriculum for Physical Education in England at Key Stage 1 and 2.
We also work closely with Move More, a Gloucestershire sports specialist charity who support primary schools through organising high-quality competitions, delivering expert sports teaching and providing development opportunities for staff.
Over the last few years, our school has been very pleased to receive awards in the School Games Award!
As we were not able to have our Sports Day in Summer 2020 due to school being closed for several year groups, the staff made a Sports Day challenge video with you can access here:
Sport Premium Funding
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 Departments 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 improving the provision of PE and sport in schools.
Please have a look at the documents below to find out how Gloucester Road will be using the PE and Sports funding to benefit the whole school.
These are working documents and are updated regularly.
Swimming is the only sport to be included within the national curriculum physical education programme of study. All primary schools must provide swimming and water safety lessons in either Key Stage 1 or 2.
Gloucester Road has chosen to provide swimming lessons for every KS2 class for one term each year. Additionally, we regularly work with the charity Heidi's Heroes to provide additional swimming opportunities for children in Year 5 who are at risk of not achieving the end of KS2 expectations for swimming.
By the end of KS2, each pupil is required to be able to do the following:
- Perform safe self-rescue in different water based situations
- Swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
- Use a range of strokes effectively, for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke.
THE SCORE NEWSLETTER
Gloucester Road regularly produces a sports-specific newsletter to update our school community on what our pupils have been enjoying in their PE lessons and through additional sporting opportunities.
