Robson House

Physical Education and Sport

Physical Education (PE), Sport Health 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 Primary 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. We use this funding for a range of activities and resources to enrich our curriculum, as detailed in the documents linked below.

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 should never be underestimated if physical literacy is to be achieved.

Robson House continues to provide all its children with a wide range of physical activities both in and outside of curriculum time and this funding ensures that both the high quality and quantity, continues to be made available for all our children.

In developing our PE and sports offer, we have been supported by Dr Barry Costas, Senior Lecturer in Physical Education at the University of Hertfordshire – a Primary PE specialist. Dr Costas noted that the children at Robson House had access to a very rich and engaging PE curriculum where sport, physical activity and wellbeing play a major part. Dr Costas stated that “The teaching of PE at Robson House is very good with some outstanding features like the diverse range of physical opportunities given to the children and the emphasis given to fitness and activity levels every morning.”

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”.

In 2018, our most recent Ofsted report said:

Pupils say that they enjoy taking part in the fun activities that the school provides, including swimming, equine therapy and a range of other sporting and physical activities.
