2016-17

Our overall aim is to raise standards in P.E. and school sport, increasing the participation and opportunities offered to all children.

At Altmore, we provide extra curriculum coaching over a lunchtime session to enable children to practise participation in team sports and extra opportunities for coaching. This was done to encourage the habit of physical activity in the playtime sessions. As a result on the days the coaches are not in school children are now more enthusiastic about participating in traditional team games making lunchtime more enjoyable and enhancing their personal and social development.

At Lathom, we continue our partnership with our School Sports Academy - coaches deliver curriculum sessions that offer all children opportunities to practise skills that they can bring to our competitive teams.

We have extended our After School Programme by providing additional coaches for our Sports and Dance Clubs. This has an impact on improving children’s physical lifestyles. The emphasis for these clubs is recreational, performance and competition. This provides a rich programme of learning in and through physical activity which helps children develop a range of skills and confidence in their abilities. As a result the participation has increased and has impacted on children’s enthusiasm to participate in P.E. and talk about sport in a more positive way.

We aim to provide higher quality lessons and improved learning for all

We have purchased new equipment to motivate and engage the least active children during PE sessions and play/lunchtime sessions as well as after school clubs.

We aim to improve standards and to provide a creative and exciting way to enrich our curriculum contributing to children’s physical activity experiences.

Expressive Arts was introduced in January 2014. These sessions allow children to explore dance, drama and music and reinforce learning in other curriculum areas particularly in role-play and writing. The activities promote the development of skills in such areas as talking and working with others and contribute greatly to their mental, emotional, social and physical well being.

The expressive arts sessions are rich and stimulating, with the capacity to engage and fascinate our children’s interest and increase their level of skills and achievements. The focus for the children has centred on expressing ideas, thoughts and feelings through creativity and self-expression.
