PE and School Sport

At Sparken Hill, we are committed to helping every one of our pupils to achieve their best in PE & School Sport. We aim to ensure success for all through a comprehensive, well thought out programme of Physical Education, School Sport and Health and Well-Being. The documents/section below provide more details and examples of this programme.

School Games & Youth Sports Trust Kitemark

 

To support the development of PE and School Sport we engage with a variety of partners locally and nationally. Two of our national partners are School Games and the Youth Sports Trust.

 

The School Games inspires young people to be physically active for life through positive experiences of daily activity and competition. At Sparken Hill Academy we follow the school games values and are currently a gold mark school. 

The Youth Sport Trust is the UK’s leading charity improving every young person’s education and development through sport and play. Working with them helps empower young people to achieve their own personal best. We are currently a Platinum Mark school.

 

Primary PE and Sports Premium Funding

The PE and sport premium defines the £320 million of government funding provided to primary schools to support them with making sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, physical activity and sport offered through their core budgets.

Into its tenth year, the Primary PE and Sport Premium supports schools to ensure equal access, support all pupils to be active for 60 minutes a day and ensure the delivery of two hours of quality PE for all pupils.

School Swimming

Thursday from 9.15-12.15

 

Once again we are working in partnership with Worksop College and Superswimmers swim school to provide our school swimming lessons. Pupils will swim in groups of 10 with a ratio of 1:4 maximum with a swimming instructor. We employ 3 swimming teachers who are based in the pool with the pupils and 4 members of staff who are on poolside. 
 

Pupils will get the first opportunity to go swimming in year 3 and again in year 4. Our aim is that by the end of year 4 every child can swim 25m in at least two different strokes and has also completed a water safety assessment program.
 

During these unprecedented times we are asking parents to make sure that their child arrives at school with their costume already on. Wear PE kit over the top as this is easier to change into afterwards. Bring a towel and underwear in a named bag ( preferably a bag for life) this will make things a lot easier for your child when putting their clothes into their bag on the poolside.
