Our physical education curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils:
- develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities;
- are physically active for sustained periods of time;
- engage in competitive sports and activities;
- lead healthy, active lifestyles.
Children spend formal P.E. lessons learning the skills they will need to participate in a variety of team and individual sports in later years. Physical Education lessons and playtimes develop both physical competence and self- confidence. Children have the opportunity to develop skills in gymnastics, dance and games. Our links to the Sports Council Partnership has enabled specialist coaches of various sports to work with each class. Physical Education provides opportunities for pupils to be creative, competitive and to face up to different challenges as individuals and in groups and teams. It also promotes positive attitudes towards active and healthy lifestyles.
The school is well equipped with a large playground and grassed areas which are used for recreation during break and lunchtime and for lessons during the school day.
At break times children are encouraged to be active by having access to a variety of play equipment, a low level adventure play area, activities marked on the playground and playground games taught to them. At lunchtime we have a playground games zone, fitness zone and skipping/cheerleading zone. Year 2 pupils are trained to be play leaders (assisted by Year 6 sports leaders and play leader trained midday assistants), to assist and encourage active physical play during lunchtimes.
The children in Foundation Stage have daily access to a large outdoor garden with a range of resources and activities to promote and develop their physical skills. They also have timetabled lessons in the hall for whole class lessons to develop games, gymnastic and dance skills.
In Key Stage 1 all pupils have 3 P.E. lessons a week: 1 games lesson, 1 gymnastics lesson and 1 dance lesson. All pupils also have the opportunity to participate in a variety of clubs provided by school staff or outside providers. Extra-curricular activities have included Football, Mini Tennis, Gymnastics and Dance.
Pupils participate in intra-school competitions in Year 1 and 2 at the end of each half term. Our school also participates in the full range of inter-school competitions available within Chelmsford for Key Stage 1 pupils. These include: Key Stage 1 gymnastics competition, 3 Tees cricket festival and the Chelmsford Mini Games. We also hold an annual sports day which involves all pupils competing in teams, as well as sprint finals for boys and girls in each year group.

Summary of Primary Sport Premium 2017 – 18
At Writtle Infant School we aim to use the Sports Premium money to create a sustainable curriculum for all children. Therefore some of the money provided by the funding will be invested in the professional development of staff and as a result should enhance the quality of teaching for all children. New planning has been developed to create a consistent approach to teaching P.E. across the school. As a result, the quality of children’s learning and development should be improved.We employ sports’ specialist teachers to work in our school throughout the week. The specialists coach all teachers and work alongside them in a range of sports. Due to this influence and expertise, all teachers will have the chance to develop their teaching of P.E. and will team teach with a specialist to increase knowledge, skills and confidence.
In addition to creating a sustainable P.E environment, Writtle Infant School also aspires to engage as many children as possible in extra-curricular activities. Consequently we have used part of the funding to employ outside coaches to run after-school clubs in which the children can participate. We hope that children will broaden their experiences by participating in these clubs and become more enthusiastic about P.E and sport.
After school clubs take place in addition to teacher led clubs. These have focused on extra-curricular physical and sports interests across Key Stage 1. These clubs allow children to engage and participate in sports which they would otherwise not have the opportunity to do.
Objectives of spend:
- Improve the provision and quality of PE & School Sport at Writtle Infant School.
- Ensure that PE & School Sport is judged as at least good by external monitoring.
- Broaden the sporting opportunities and experiences available to pupils.
- To develop a love of sport and physical activity.
