Primary School


Coordinator: Mrs E Matthews   

At Netherthong Primary we pride ourselves on our intention to deliver high quality P.E. teaching to all our pupils and thus engaging our children in a wide range of exciting physical activities, multi-skills and sports throughout the year. Our intention is to ensure all children are taught 2 hours P.E. per week, but are also physically active for an additional half hour per day too. Our intention is to incorporate physical activity across other areas of the curriculum too. We intend to provide inspiring, differentiated lessons, allowing all our pupils to feel fully included and extended where needed and thus promoting a love of P.E. and sport across the school.

We aim to inspire not only those children who excel in sport, but also very importantly those children who may not get the same opportunities or may find P.E. more difficult. We intend to encourage all our children to lead healthy, active lives, whilst understanding the huge benefits of exercise on the body. A lifelong love of sport for all would be the ideal!

Our intention is to provide the children with as many opportunities as possible to experience a wide range of sports and an opportunity to take part in both intra and inter-school competitions and festivals. Our intention is to help our children discover the huge benefits of sport and P.E. for both physical and mental health.

Each class has 2 hours P.E. every week. Experienced coaches work alongside our staff to help them deliver the highest possible P.E. provision and thus further develop the skills of the teaching staff. The focus in Key Stage 1 is to develop a wide range of multi-skills, before then progressing towards applying these skills to a wide range of sports. All children are taught gymnastics, dance, cricket, netball and athletics and skill progression from Reception right through to Year 6 is closely considered in planning. Facilities include a large hall, 2 playgrounds and 2 large areas of field in which to deliver high quality P.E.

We work very closely with the Pennine Sports Partnership and thus are able to provide our children with a wide selection of extra-curricular sporting events. Try-it events provide the children with the opportunity of having taster sessions in a wide range of sports, for example badminton, indoor cricket etc. Sports competitions and tournaments take place throughout the year and all our children are given the opportunity of taking part in these exciting events. Teaching staff offer football, netball and gymnastics clubs too and matches, competitions and festivals take place throughout the year. Children are actively encouraged to take part in these events.

Over the past two years we at Netherthong have thoroughly enjoyed hosting an ‘Inclusive P.E.’ event at Netherthong, inviting children with additional needs from our area to take part in a special multi-skills event in our school.

We also run a weekly ‘Healthy Club’ for a small number of children who may need a little more encouragement or opportunity to engage in physical activity.

We not only have a ‘Girls Active’ group at Netherthong, who organise fun physical activities for the girls every playtime and also a play leaders group, who take the time to organise multi-skills activities for the younger members in school to take part in over the lunchtime period. Project Sport also lead a wide range of sporting activities for the children over the lunchtime period too.

Key Stage 1 enjoy ‘Go Noodle’ every morning and thoroughly enjoy this additional physical exercise every day. Key Stage 2 have been very inspired by their daily 15minutes exercise every afternoon. They enjoy relays on the field or playgrounds, dance activities, games and races too.

At Netherthong we pride ourselves not only on inspiring a love of sport and an understanding of the need for physical activity, but also, very importantly the knowledge of how important it is to be a respectful sportsman or woman who cares for others and is a great team player.

P.E is taught as a basis for lifelong learning, where the children have access to a wide range of activities in the belief that they will fully understand the huge benefits to both physical and equally importantly mental health and will continue to have a physically active life.

Class teachers will continue to monitor the progress of their children with the aid of the progression guidance for each discipline being taught and will then assess each child after each discipline has been delivered (i.e. half termly). Staff will use the Pennine Sports Partnership assessment sheets to formatively assess the children in their year group each half term in each discipline taught. At the end of the year, the class teacher will conclude with a summative assessment, thus highlighting each child’s end of year assessment.

Children and staff are asked to complete a simple questionnaire to highlight their views on the P.E. provision provided by the school both during the school day and also in extra-curricular clubs. Feedback from the staff and pupils is always considered very important.

Virtual Sports Day! 9th July 2020

admin on: PE/ Sports Blog

Thank you so very much everyone for taking part in our very first 'Virtual Sports Day'! It was so lovely to see so many of you taking part and with such wonderful enthusiasm. Our events were very different to our usual Sports Day events and clearly the children loved every single minute! Here at school we did have to battle with the wonderful rain, but it certainly did not stop our Sports Day. With events held in the playground as well as the classrooms, we had a brilliant day. It was fabulous to see the wonderfully inventive ways you all managed to complete each event at home too; hurdles in the lounge, very competitive egg and spoon races across the garden, cricket in the hall and kitchen foil javelin were just a few of the fabulous events at home! Your photos were just brilliant! Thank you!

Now for the result...…..

After careful counting of scores both at school and at home, I can announce the 'Lockdown Virtual Sports Day' winners of 2020 as ...

Pitcher (yellow team)!

Harry, the captain of Pitcher has checked we have yellow ribbons on the cup and it is being proudly displayed in our trophy cabinet in school!

Well done everyone!

Netball tournament 3.3.20

admin on: PE/ Sports Blog

Well done to our fabulous year 5/6 netball team who were runners up in the Holmfirth Pyramid Tournament last Tuesday. They played exceptionally well in every match and were successful in winning their group in the first round, winning the semi-final and taking 2nd place in the final! I was so proud of you all; great determination as well as super skills seen in every single match.

Can't wait for our next matches!
