PE is an integral part of the school curriculum. We aim to provide an enjoyable and balanced programme. Alongside this, children will also develop their skills and understanding of competitive team games (e.g. Netball and Cricket), as well as Outdoor and Adventurous Activities, Dance and Gymnastics. Within PE lessons, children are provided with the opportunity to develop their skills. Our main focus is improving agility, balance and coordination. The development of confidence, tolerance and the appreciation of one’s own and others’ strengths and weaknesses are an essential part of our teaching.
At Yohden Primary School, we will provide every child with the opportunity to take part in physical activity regularly, in the hope that this will help them to become more active, more aware of their fitness and more confident. We want our pupils to have fun, learn to lead, explore different sports and develop a love of sport and activity that continues throughout their lives. We recognise the value of sport and activity on raising self-esteem and resilience.
Children have PE lessons twice a week and children in KS2 have the opportunity to attend swimming lessons.
We offer after school clubs to KS1 and KS2 which change regularly to provide all pupils with something they will enjoy.
We regularly enter County Durham and SSP competitions and festivals where children have opportunities to work collaboratively and competitively with other schools.
This year we have attended Cross County, Netball and Tag Rugby Competitions.
We currently hold a Gold Mark for the School Games award. This is a government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Participating in this process allows schools to evaluate their PE provision and assists them in developing an action plan for future progress.
