Physical Education at Deighton Gates 2019 / 2020
Deighton Gates’ P.E Vision and Mission:
Our P.E vision for across the school is to be ACTIVE:
Energetic... and fun for all!
We ensure progression for all pupils and have high expectations across the key skills, and children take ownership of their own learning.
We support children to learn to take risks without being afraid to fail.
We will encourage pupils to work collaboratively to meet goals and overcome challenges.
We inspire our pupils through fun, purposeful and engaging lessons.
We develop each child’s feeling of self worth and help them to support and encourage each other.
We will encourage children to be active and to understand the need for a fit and healthy lifestyle.
PE Premium 2019-20
From September 2013, Deighton Gates has been in receipt of an annual grant dedicated to PE and Sport in school. This is funded jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture and Media and Sport
In order to achieve sustainability of high quality provision, the majority of the grant is being invested in staff development. Over the first three years the grant has been used in the following ways to enhance the provision and achievement in Sport and PE
As a result of ongoing financial investment and dedication by staff we were delighted to have been awarded first in 2015 the Silver Award by Sainsbury’s School Sports which recognises excellence in PE and Sport, Gold in 2016, 2017 and Gold again in 2018. Higher percentages of children are taking part in active sport and competitions, progress and attainment for pupils in PE are higher, equipment and provision are of a very high standard supporting high quality teaching.
Planned spend for next year includes:
Reception and Year 1
Children go swimming in the Autumn and Spring Terms of Year 4. There are also opportunities in subsequent years for children who have not met the minimum National Curriculum Standard of swimming 25m unaided.
During the school year of 2019 - 2020:
93% of children are able to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
89% of our current Year 6 cohort are able to use a range of strokes effectively
[For example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]
93% of our current Year 6 cohort can perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
