PE Vision Statement
At Fringford Primary School we strive to provide ALL children with a wealth of opportunities to develop their physical literacy this includes competing in inter- and intra-school competitions. Developing cross-curricular links with PE and using physical activity to develop the ‘whole child’ is central to our vision for whole school development.
At Fringford C of E Primary School we strive to achieve a sense of well-being, drive and enjoyment through physical education. The children are actively motivated to appreciate the positive effects of a healthy, active lifestyle.
All classes have 2.5 hours of curriculum time per week. This takes the form of 10 minute daily classroom yoga sessions, outdoor games, indoor 'equipment based' activities, apparatus work, swimming (KS2), gymnastics or dance. Some of these sessions are with the Ignite Sports Group and some are with specialist mentor P.E. teachers from the North Oxfordshire School Sports Partnership (NOSSP). These mentor teachers work in conjunction with the classroom teachers to improve sports delivery, engagement and attainment in P.E. across the school.
Extra-curricular sport includes both a KS1 and KS2 football club and a KS2 club that will focus a different sport each term. In the past the children have enjoyed trying new activities such as ‘quidditch’ and dodgeball. These clubs are very popular and we aim to keep three clubs per year in operation. The children are also invited to be part of the ‘Mile on Monday’ running group during Monday lunchtimes.
Fringford C of E Primary also encourages the older children to develop their leadership skills by taking ownership of occasional activities with other KS2 and KS1 children. They have been closely mentored by specialist teachers from NOSSP.
Across the school year every KS1 child takes part in an inter-school festival or competition and in KS2 the children attend at least two competitive events. This year we have met the goals required to win a Silver 'Kite Mark' and a Silver Youth Sport Trust 'Quality Achievement' mark. This, for a small school, is commendable.
