At Barley Lane Primary School, we ‘Believe in ourselves, Learn together, Persevere and Succeed’. We strongly believe that all children should have access to a thoroughly planned, progressive physical education programme, which places a real emphasis on developing a wide range of physical competences, while encouraging healthy competition and teamwork. Throughout their time at Barley Lane Primary School, our teachers strive to equip all children with the necessary skills, knowledge and range of physical experiences to motivate them to lead lifelong active, healthy lifestyles in which they continue their participation in physical activity and sport.
Our curriculum is fully inclusive, developing all pupils. We will ensure that pupils of all abilities access the range of activities we offer and that they are physically active for sustained periods. We aspire to build self-esteem, teamwork and leadership skills in our children. Children will all have the opportunity to excel at sports and activities through fun clubs and competitions. This way we will develop a culture of lifelong enjoyment of sport and physical activity, as well as an understanding of how to lead healthy and active lifestyles.
The department of education routinely publishes statutory compliance targets for all schools. Such an example of this practise includes the requirement that schools must publish online evidence of how they have spent their Primary PE and Sports Premium funding as well as identifying the positive impact of the funding. This government order is intended to enable the wider school community to monitor progress and compare achievements and results with other schools.
DfE Vision: All pupils leave primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport. From September 2013, responsibility for the effective spend and impact of the grant aid rests with every state primary sector teaching establishment. Ofsted has publicised their intention to increase the coverage of inspection related to PE and sport.
