Children at Stamshaw participate in two sessions of PE each week. The indoor PE session is taught by the class teacher and the outdoor PE is currently being taught by Pompey in the Community.
The PE curriculum us varied and progressive ensuring that children can build on and consolidate the skills which they have previously learnt.
Children wear coloured PE shirts which correspond to their house team. At the end of each unit of work, children this year will be competing in house teams across their year groups in the sport which they have learnt.
The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding’. This funding is being jointly provided by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
Sports Premium PE Funding
This funding is a payment to schools from Central Government and can only be spent on school sport and PE. Schools can choose how best to use the funding to improve sport and PE provision to help children to develop healthy lifestyles. In 2015/16, Stamshaw Junior School received £9280 in funding which was spent on PE coaching and on lunchtime sports clubs. Throughout the year, teachers from each year group were supported by external sports coaches to teach an identified unit of work from the Curriculum. As well as having a noticeable impact on the confidence of staff when teaching the units, this support has provided teachers with a knowledge of innovative games which can be applied in a variety of contexts. External sports coaches ran lunchtime clubs for each year group. These clubs provided all children with the opportunity to take part in a variety of games whilst also developing team work and communication skills. In 2016/17, Stamshaw Junior School will receive £9340 in funding. This funding will be used on external coaches who will coach teachers to be better able to teach the units of work for PE and Games. External coaches will also be running lunchtime sports clubs throughout the year.
