Studfall Junior Academy

PE and Sports Premium

To ensure that we succeed… 

Our PE Curriculum Journey offers a broad and balanced PE curriculum with all year groups that supports and promotes children's well-being, nurturing their physical as well as mental development through gymnastics, swimming, traditional sports, non-traditional sports, outdoor adventurous activities, multi skills, circuit training, sports hall athletics and leadership and team building.  All children in Y3 have swimming lessons.  Visiting coaches support some curriculum delivery and the children have enjoyed learning cricket skills from Northants Cricket’s Chance to Shine programme, Corby Tennis Club and Northampton Saints.

We appreciate the benefits of sport and physical activity for all our pupils. We provide a range of activities to introduce our children to new experiences, give them opportunities to be active together, improve on individual skills and believe in their abilities.

  

Within the curriculum and alongside traditional sports (football, rugby, netball, basketball, dance, swimming) we cover less traditional sporting activities to allow the children to discover new talents, new skills.  These non-traditional sports include Boccia, circus skills, achieving personal best: health related exercise, circuit training, ball skills, cheerleading and dodgeball.

 

Competitive sport

As a result of Covid-19 competitive sport between schools has been postponed. Here at Studfall Junior Academy children will be allowed to achieve and shine by taking part in intra-sport competitions. Children of all abilities will take part in competitive sporting activities at the end of some units of work once a term.  Here, whatever skills they have acquired will be used to compete as part of a team in differentiated competitions.

 

PE, Sport and Physical Activity

Sport For All

We appreciate the benefits of sport and physical activity for all our pupils. We provide a range of activities to introduce our children to new experiences, give them opportunities to be active together, improve on individual skills and see the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. A sports coach works in school for one day a week taking small groups of children to do physical and mental challenges. All children in Y5 are offered the chance to take part in the local “Kids Of Steel” Triathalon. Equipment is available at lunchtimes for children to design their own active games whilst a separate section of the playground is made available for football. Skipping is really popular with large groups of children of all ages competing to see who can do the most consecutive skips – well over 200!

Studfall Juniors takes part every year in National School Sports Week. The usual timetable is adapted for a week of sports activities and cross –curricular sports inspired work. Each year group is visited by coaches from local clubs, parents can join in too! Not only does this week introduce children to new sports but has been a great way for Studfall Juniors to make links with local clubs and encourage children to attend these out of school. Included within this are netball, rugby, dance ,Tae Kwon Do, tennis, table tennis, bowls, cheerleading and lawn bowls.
