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.

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.
