PE

Sports Premium Funding

From September 2013 schools have received an additional £8,000 (plus £5 per pupil between the ages of 5-11 years old) to improve the quality of sport and PE within school.

At The Boyle and Petyt Primary School we recognise the contribution of Physical Education to the health and well-being of our children. We believe that an innovative and varied PE curriculum, alongside extra-curricular opportunities, have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and achievement of our pupils.

Our KS2 children have a weekly PE session, which takes place at school, on the playground or field, or in the case of inclement weather, at Bolton Abbey Village Hall. This session is taught by the school's PE specialist teacher with the support of a TA. We cover a wide curriculum, aligning our teaching to the various cluster events, alongside the teaching of fitness, dance and gymnastics.  Junior PE is further enhanced by Rugby and Dance sports coaches in the Spring and Summer terms.

The KS1 children have a weekly PE lesson in the school hall or outdoor facilities. We make PE equipment available to the children at breaks and lunchtimes, and it is lovely to see the children practising skills that have been taught in lessons.

We consider swimming to be an important life skill and an essential element of the school’s PE curriculum, especially given our location so close to the River Wharfe. As such, all our KS1 and KS2 children will swim on a weekly basis this year. The children are transported to Craven Swimming Pool, where they are taught by four fully qualified swimming teachers, along with support from trained TAs.

We also ensure and encourage participation in competition and cluster sporting events, and appreciate that sometimes we have to try a little harder to enable children to find their ‘niche’. With this in mind, we are looking to try out some new activities over the course of this academic year, to see if we can encourage even more children to take up some form of activity outside school. We have good links with local sports clubs, and encourage both keen and talented individuals to take their participation to the next level.

Children in year 6 take part in an outdoor and adventurous residential visit which includes the opportunity to experience climbing and a range of water sports.
