PE and Sports Premium
At St Barnabas we strive to ensure that all children are physically confident and are inspired to continue with sporting activities as they become young adults. We understand that a child needs to be taught balance, coordination, core movements and agility in order to achieve and succeed in sport. We ensure that all children are learning these key skills throughout their time at St Barnabas.
In the Foundation Stage (Year R) the children learn core skills and how to work as a team. As they progress through the school into KS1 they learn how to master these skills within number of different sports and activities.
Throughout KS2 children continue to develop these skills within primary adapted sports such as netball, football, tag rugby and cricket etc. We strongly believe that through competition, both within school (Level 1) and between other local schools (Level 2 and 3), our children have an opportunity to showcase their talents and learn more about the dynamics of participation in sport.
We have re-organised our play times and facilities to encourage 'active play', facilitating greater levels of health and fitness.
We are looking forward to working towards our Platinum award next year.
