PE and Sports at Norton

PE Premium Funding:

 

In the financial year 2016-2017 our school will receive a total £8,555 from the Government. We have put an Action plan together and have decided that the budget will be used to provide:

 

  • Opportunities for all children to experience a range of sports through attending a variety of festivals across the year
  • Training opportunities for staff to develop their teaching of PE lessons
  • Subsidised sports coaches to encourage participation in a variety of after-school sports
  • Cover costs of Central Venue League Tournaments
  • Target inactive pupils

 

This Government funding is not guaranteed to continue, so we have chosen to spend this funding each year on resources that will allow us to sustain the appropriate provision, should the funding no longer be made available to us.

Sports Activities at Norton

Our goal is to help children to lead a healthy, active lifestyle that will become part of their everyday life.  We want to inspire children to participate in sport and games to develop their fundamental skills and increase their confidence and competency levels. We offer this in many ways throughout the school such as; good quality PE sessions; active after-school clubs and inter and intra house competitions

PE sessions

Our philosophy in PE is to give all children the physical literacy, emotional and thinking skills to achieve in PE, sport and life. 

 

We use the Create Development PE program as one of the methods of delivery within our school and also offer children opportunities in gymnastics, dance, outdoor adventurous activities and athletics. In years 2, 3 and 4 children access of a term swimming at Taunton School.

 

All children have access to 2, good quality PE sessions a week. Our lessons are based around physical literacy and are delivered alongside other learning skills such as; cognitive, creative, social, personal and health and fitness. This enables our children to not only develop their fundamental movement skills but allows them to make links between PE and their other learning.

After School Activities

At Norton we offer a wide range of sporting opportunities based on children's interests. These change on a termly or half termly basis and are available for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. We encourage all children to participate and have developed local club links to encourage children to continue to access sports that engage them once our club has ended. 

Children have enjoyed; tag rugby, archery and street dance so far this year, with more exciting clubs to come in the Summer Term!

Inter Sport Activities

This academic year, as a school we have entered lots of sports competitions both non-competitively and competitively. 

 

Festivals

All children, from reception to year 6, are given the opportunity to take part in festivals alongside other primary schools in the area. These are enjoyable, non-competitive sessions with a variety of themes. They include; multi-skills; net and wall; invasion games; orienteering; striking and fielding and leadership.

 

Central Venue League

As a school we have entered a variety of Central Venue League tournaments and friendlies this year. The children use their sports knowledge and teamwork skills learnt in curriculum lessons and lunchtime clubs to compete against other school teams in the area. Sports are chosen based on the children's interests and are well represented.
