Sports and PE are an essential part of life at The Wroxham Primary School. We employ a PE coach that works with children and staff from Foundation Stage to Year 6. He often leads PE lessons, alongside the class teacher, which encourages children to take an active role in keeping fit and healthy. During lessons, they also teach children specialist skills to improve their physical strength and ability. All children at Wroxham are included in PE lessons.
Our PE coaches run sports clubs at lunch and after school. They also take teams to local fixtures. Sports clubs include football, netball and multisports sessions. These clubs are open to all children at The Wroxham.
We encourage all children to have an active lifestyle and take part in school competitions and events. Many of our children play in local leagues and attend our sports clubs after school.
- Pupil voice is essential in developing our sports provision – including match reports
- We have an annual sports day for Early Years, KS1 and KS2.
- All our children from Y2 – Y6 swim, for one term each year to ensure that they all have access to swimming lessons until they are 11 years old.
- Teachers still teach one PE lesson a week to ensure sustainability – support provided by PE coach.
We also use our funding to train our coach and teaching staff to a high standard.
How are we spending the Sports Premium grant?
By having a specialist sports coach in school that works alongside class teachers we ensure that all children receive high quality first teaching for PE. We intend that the employment of a specialist member of staff will enhance our existing provision and have a long lasting impact on the health of the children at the school. This includes children with physical disabilities and additional needs.
The coach also encourages children to take part in extracurricular sports activities both after school and on weekends.
The Sports Coach at Wroxham School runs the local Potters Bar Cricket Festival. A number of local schools take part in the competition; including our own Year 5 and Year 6 pupils.
We also run the local Girl’s football league, football tournament and football cup. Our Coach also runs the leagues for our boy’s team.
