Welcome to the Healey JIN School Sports Section

PHYSICAL EDUCATION, SCHOOL SPORT and PHYSICAL ACTIVITY  (PESSPA)

All 3 are similar in that they all include physical movement but there are important differences as outlined below:

PHYSICAL EDUCATION

Physical Education  (P.E.) is the planned, progressive learning that takes place in school curriculum timetable time and which is delivered to all pupils ( Nursery, Early Years, Key Stages 1 & 2). This is involves moving to learning to move ( i.e. becoming more physically competent) and moving to learn e.g. learning through movement, a range of skills and understandings beyond physical activity such as co-operating with others). The context of the learning is physical activity, with children experiencing a braod range of activities, including sport and dance.

 

For further information about our P.E. Curriculum please click on the Curriculum Tab and then choose P.E.

SCHOOL SPORT

 School sport is the structured learning that takes place beyond the curriculum (i.e. the extended curriculum) within school settings. Again, the context of the learning is physical activity. The aim of the sports programme is to develop and broaden the foundation learning that takes place in P.E. It also forms a vital link with " community sport and activity."

For further information about our clubs, click on the Parents tab, After School Clubs.

Below is firther information about the School Games Competitions we participate in every year.

Each Key Stage holds an annual Sports Day in the summer term.

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY

Physical Activity is the broad term that describes bodily movement, posture and balance. All require energy. It includes all form of P.E., sports and dance activities. However, it is wider than this, as it also includes indoor and outdoor play, work-related activity, outdoor & adventurous activities. active travel (e.g. walking, cycling and routine habitual activities such as using the stairs, homework & gardening).

We encourage physical activity throughout the school day. This includes break times and active breaks in lessons.

INTENT

Young people should have the opportunity to live healthy and active lives. A positive experience of sport and physical activity at a young age can build a lifetime habit of participation and is central to meeting the government’s ambitions for a world-class education system.

Physical activity has numerous benefits for children and young people’s physical health, as well as their mental wellbeing (increasing self-esteem and emotional wellbeing and lowering anxiety and depression), and children who are physically active are happier, more resilient and more trusting of their peers. Ensuring that pupils have access to sufficient daily activity can also have wider benefits for pupils and schools, improving behaviour as well as enhancing academic achievement.

The School Sport and Activity Action Plan set out government’s commitment to ensuring that children and young people have access to at least 60 minutes of sport and physical activity per day, with a recommendation of 30 minutes of this delivered during the school day (in line with the Chief Medical Officers guidelines which recommend an average of at least 60 minutes per day across the week).

The PE and sport premium can help primary schools to achieve this aim, providing primary schools with £320m of government funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, physical activity and sport offered through their core budgets. It is allocated directly to schools so they have the flexibility to use it in the way that works best for their pupils. The PE and sport premium survey highlighted the significant impact which PE and Sport has had in many primary schools across England.

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the physical education (PE), physical activity and sport they provide. This includes any carried forward funding from the 2019 to 2020 academic year, which must be spent by 31 March 2021.

This means that you should use the PE and sport premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport that your school provides
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

You should use the PE and sport premium to secure improvements in the following 5 key indicators.

  1. Engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
  2. Profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  5. Increased participation in competitive sport
