PE at Queen’s Crescent 2019/20
At Queen’s Crescent we offer a range of exciting PE and sporting opportunities to keep our children active and healthy as well as active play and lunch times. We promote a safe and positive environment for our children to gain the confidence to try new things and create positive attitudes to PE and sport.
The children need their PE kit in school each day. Details can be found here: please click here to view PE kit
We offer a huge range of sporting opportunities for our children through our Real PE and Real Gym schemes of work, our teacher led clubs, Enrichment afternoons in KS2 and sports festivals offered through the Chippenham Sports Partnership and links with local clubs. As well as this, we have groups of children chosen or trained in different skills to support the running of PE, sport and physical activity throughout the school. These include the Bike-It Crew, the playground Buddies and the School Sports Organising Committee. The children are enriched through these responsibilities to support and guide others to lead a healthy lifestyle.
Our sports provider, PH Sport, offer free after school clubs to children across FS2, KS1 and KS2 throughout the year. Clubs range from Dance and Multi-Skills to Ultimate Frisbee and Indoboarding. They also support KS2 Friday Enrichment afternoons and have offered activities such as Handball, Tchoukball and Gymnastics.
We are partnered with a second sports provider offering clubs and staff CPD. Up & Under Sport provide our girls only football club on a Tuesday lunch time and an after school football club open to year 5 and 6. In addition to this, Dave Peters will work with teachers and classes across the school, to offer training and high quality support to our teachers to ensure that there is a high standard of PE being taught across the school.
At Queen's Crescent, our Year 4 cohort are offered swimming lessons at the Olympiad Leisure Centre to work through the National Curriculum targets with awards available to purchase through the office when achieved.
Sports Premium Funding
In 2013 the government pledged millions of pounds to schools known as the Sports Premium to spend on raising the profile of PE and to continue the legacy of the 2012 London Olympic Games. Since then, Queen's Crescent has been given around £9500 each year but from September 2017 that amount was doubled resulting in around £19,000 to focus on school PE and sports.
