PE and Sports
High quality Physical Education (PE) is planned and delivered as part of the National Curriculum for all our pupils for at least two hours per week. It includes gymnastics, games, dance, athletics and swimming. It develops physical literacy, self-confidence, team work and leadership skills and it is the foundation for an active lifestyle and competitive sport.
Additionally, we have a range of after school clubs offering physical activities. We focus on skills, enjoyment, engagement and team building. We have a football club and a team who play matches with schools in our local area.
In 2016/17 Rosslyn Park Primary and Nursery School received £10,315 PE and Sport Funding to improve the quality of PE, sport and physical activity for all pupils.
The funding is used to employ an Evolve Health Mentor for three days per week at £150.00 per day. Two terms x 13 weeks and one term x 12 weeks = £17,100.
The Health Mentor, Mr. Brown, supports teachers with, and models planned PE lessons for Years 1, 5 and 6. In September 2016 the school invested in the REAL PE Programme, which the Health Mentor is trained in and so is able to support with its delivery.
The Health Mentor leads team games at lunchtimes. On Thursday he manages football across the whole school ensuring that the children are playing to the rules and on Tuesdays and Fridays there are a range of activities (zones) available.
Mr. Brown also provides three after school clubs. On Tuesday the club is for years 1 and 2 and covers multi sports, Thursday it is a football club for both boys and girls in Years 3 and 4 and on Friday Mr. Brown runs a cricket club for Years 5 and 6. The Health Mentor also mentors targeted children in small groups and individually.
