"A really good leader of P.E. in an outstanding school for P.E." (Martin Radmore, Norfolk P.E. Advisor May 2015)
P.E. Vision Statement
At Anthony Curton Primary School we aim to provide challenging and appropriate P.E. lessons that allow children to reach their full potential. We recognise that P.E. and sport have an important role to play in raising standards and narrowing the achievement gap. We believe that positive participation in physical education will leave students with a legacy of success facilitating an active lifestyle.
We promote active participation and lifelong learning through movement centered and knowledge based activities. All activities are inclusive and help to nurture a love for physical activity.
Anthony Curton Primary School offers a range of High Quality opportunities for young people to access Physical education, both within and outside of school hours, and also through competition. We aim to guide youngsters to make healthy choices as part of an active, balanced lifestyle.
"A really positive vision statement - one of the best I've seen" (Martin Radmore, Norfolk P.E. Advisor May 2015)
At Anthony Curton Primary School we have made very effective use of the Sports Grant. We have found that with the additional funding the participation of extra curricular clubs has increased. We are also available to offer a wider range of exciting clubs, which has interested and motivated our pupils.
Currently at Anthony Curton 64% of all disadvantaged pupils participate in extra curricular clubs and activities (63% of children also participate in these). Currently 73% of all Key stage 2 pupils attend extra curricular clubs and activities. Last year there were 138 individual opportunities for children in Key Stage 2 to participate in sporting tournaments and competitions, with 100% uptake.
For Swimming, the number of Year 6 children who can swim 25m is 26, which is 92.6%
For Swimming, the number of Year 6 children who can use a range of strokes in swimming is 20, which is 71.43%
For Swimming, the number of Year 6 children who can perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations is 28, which is 100%
The average for the whole of Year 6 in all 3 disciplines is 88.01%
The current Year 6 cohort is 28.
To ensure the impact of the grant spending is sustainable, we have offered extra sporting opportunities through training a staff member in NPETCS, ensuring high quality P.E. is being delivered throughout the whole school, both in and out of the curriculum. We have also been able to utilise external bodies to provide a more diverse range of sports, before, during and after the school day (E.g. Archery and fencing).
Please see our 2017-18 P.E. Funding report below.
