Corpus Christi's PE Vision

At Corpus Christi Primary School we aim to give children a life long passion for physical activity.

We are dedicated to helping pupils embrace the adventure of learning new physical skills.

We want our children to aspire to be active. After all, healthy active children do achieve more.

We instil this vision through effective teaching and learning of Physical Education, challenging the pupil’s self-belief and celebrating pupils personal achievements.

 

PE Kit

Our PE kit comprises a white t-shirt, navy shorts or tracksuit trousers, and plimsolls. 

If a child has not got a PE kit a reminder letter will be sent home that day.

PE kits will be kept in school and sent home at the end of each half term. 

Jewellery should not be worn during PE lessons. However, if stud earrings are worn they must be taped over. Finally shoulder length and long hair should be tied back.

PE & Sports Premium

As a fitting legacy of the very successful 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Government provided extra funding to schools to enhance sports provision. This funding, jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, has been utilised to improve the quality of PE for children and to help them to develop healthy lifestyles.

Each school received £8000, plus £5 per pupil on role in January 2016. This was allocated in two payments in November 2016 and July 2017. Corpus Christi School received £8,925 

For the school year 2017 to 2018 school s will receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil. The allocation for Corpus Christi is £17,890.

At Corpus Christi we strongly value the place of PE in the curriculum. We recognise its intrinsic importance to the physical and emotional development of children. In addition to the obvious physical health benefits provided by regular exercise, the pupils learn important lessons about choosing healthy lifestyles.

Regular activity also contributes to higher levels of concentration, focus and motivation. These academic benefits are enhanced through improved social interaction, cooperation and a positive sense of identity. Pupils develop team skills and leadership qualities, building the confidence and energy to succeed in all areas of their life.

We use our funding to provide a range of opportunities, including part funding of our additional PE teacher who delivers high quality PE lessons, supports other staff and facilitates a range of out of hours opportunities. We access a range of programmes including Change for Life, and we attend regular competitions through engagement with the Middlesbrough School Partnership network.

 

The P.E Curriculum

A wide range of activities are delivered in school which aim to engage and inspire all children. We aspire to provide at least 2 hours per week of high quality well-planned PE.

Over the year each child will participate in games, athletics, dance and gymnastics lessons. Sporting activities include football, cricket, tag-rugby, basketball, netball, tennis, hockey, cross country and golf. Workshops are also provided to capture all interests including Hoola Hooping and skipping. All children gain access to the Middlesbrough Council Swimming Programme. Our aim is that all children leave our school at the end of Year 6 able to swim 25 metres.

Adventurous activities in Year 6, include rock climbing, abseiling, canoeing, problem solving, orienteering and archery which are delivered while they attend an annual residential at Robinwood Activity Centre, Barhaugh Hall, Alston in Cumbria.

Talented children are signposted to local clubs and events to encourage them to develop their skills. Most recently some children joined a county athletics event and various football clubs.

All teachers provide a wide range of extra-curricular clubs for children throughout the year. We track all of our children’s participation in school clubs and sporting events in order to ensure we can provide something for all. We also monitor Pupil Premium Children’s access to sports.
