Robson House

Physical Education and Sport

Physical Education (PE), Sport and well-being are seen as vital areas of learning in the primary curriculum at Robson House. All at Robson House welcome the government’s commitment to improve the quality of PE and School Sport and well-being for all children in primary schools through provision of the PE and Sport Premium.

This provides funding to support the delivery and provision of PE and sport and aims to improve the skills of primary teachers to teach high quality PE and sport and to improve the quality of provision for PE and sport in schools and increase participation. This funding is for the foreseeable future. In 2015-2016 we used this funding to buy in the services of a specialist PE consultant, to pay for weekly sessions from a sports coach, and to hire local facilities for sport and PE. Details of how we are spending the allocation for the current academic year can be found here: PE and Sport Premium 2016 to 2017.

Staff at Robson House agree that a broad, balanced and rich PE curriculum forms the basis for a lifetime of physical activity, and the importance of PE and School Sport must never be underestimated if physical literacy is to be achieved.

 Robson House has historically provided all its children with a wide range of physical activities both in and outside of curriculum time and this new funding will ensure that both the high quality and quantity will continue to be made available for all our children.

In their Report in March 2015, Ofsted said:

“Government sports funding is used well to provide many opportunities for pupils sporting interests.  They all represent the school, for example in competitive games against other schools.  The school employs a specialist coach to promote both the pupils and teachers understanding and enjoyment of physical activity. A wide range of activities is used to show pupils how to keep themselves safe and behave well.  The curriculum contributes well to pupils physical, academic, and emotional well-being. It promotes their spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding well”.
