Primary School PE and Sport Funding
Parklands Vision for PE 2021/22
PE and sport play a very important part in the life of Parklands Primary and at least two one hour sessions per week are dedicated to physical activity in the curriculum. We believe that physical education and sport contribute to the holistic development of young people allowing them to express themselves outside the classroom. Through participation in sport and physical education, young people learn more about key values such as teamwork, fair play and respect for themselves and for others. We have found that our extensive PE and Sport Curriculum has had a massive impact on both the health and the behaviour of our pupils.
There is significant evidence to show the positive effects of sport and exercise on children’s physical health, growth and development. Furthermore, sport also provides a healthy environment for young people to learn how to deal with competition and how to cope with both winning and losing.
Our high-quality PE curriculum offers a wide variety of activities both in and out of curriculum time. Our children learn that being active is fun and an essential part of a healthy lifestyle. At the beginning of their school life our children learn and explore basic movement skills, they develop these skills throughout their time at Parklands Primary and leave as confident movers able to play a wide range of sports.
At Foundation Stage and KS1, our children experience dance, games, athletics, gymnastics and lessons in fundamental movement and multi-skills. At KS2 in addition to those taught earlier, pupils also have lessons in swimming which include water confidence, safety and stroke technique. Our children enjoy outdoor and adventurous activities through our class based residentials.
The activities on offer outside of our curriculum time are run on a lunch time and after school. The clubs on offer will vary depending on the time of year. Our clubs are always very popular and are run by teachers, teaching assistants and fully qualified coaches. At the beginning of each term club letters are sent out and parents have a set period of time to apply for places. We endeavour to give every child a place in a club or more than one if it is possible, however on the rare occasion your child is unsuccessful, they will be placed on a reserve list and guaranteed a place in the next block of clubs.
General Physical Education Activities
Physical Literacy / Maths – the children have been lucky enough to take part in a variety of special activities such as the Award Winning Tagtiv8 project termly as well as working with Yorkshire CCC with their Shine project for 12 hours throughout the year.
BMX – the children enjoyed an afternoon learning how to ride BMX bikes and ride over ramps as a result of our links with the former Team GB cyclist – Phil Bateman. This is for KS1 and KS2 children twice a year.
Northern Ballet – the children will take part in two workshops later this academic year. They will be given the fantastic opportunity of watching both productions at the Leeds Grand Theatre.
