PE and School Sport

 

Our Approach
At RFA we have an experienced team who deliver our PE and Sports Provision. We are committed to providing a full, varied and challenging curriculum, which enables our pupils to experience and enjoy a wide range of sporting activities. Physical education and school sport have been recognised to make distinctive contributions to the development of young people’s social skills, self-esteem and academic development. To see an overview document of our provision please click here.

 

EYFS (Reception)
Our Reception children enjoy multi-skills lessons throughout their first year at school; this provides lots of opportunities for our pupils to develop the fundamental skills needed for effective movement - agility, balance and coordination. This provides our pupils with a solid movement foundation and supports the development of fine and gross motor skills.

 

Key Stage 1
In Key Stage 1 we work hard to develop each child’s fundamental movement skills, so that children gain competence and confidence through accessing a wide range of activities to further develop their agility, balance and coordination, working both individually and with others. Our children are given lots of opportunities to engage in competitive and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.

 

Key Stage 2
In Key Stage 2 all pupils further develop a wide range of skills, we teach our pupils to use their skills in different ways and to start linking skills to make actions and short sequences of movement. Our goal is for every child to enjoy collaborating and competing with each-other; developing the ability to understand how to improve in different sporting situations and learning how to evaluate and recognise their own and others’ success.

Play time and lunch times
At play time and lunch times the playground is a hive of activity. Each day of the week we run a different series of fun activities to challenge and entertain the children as well as burn off energy. Reception children have their own learning and play garden whilst Years 1-4 share the main courtyard playground. Although pupils also have access to the junior playground which has a climbing frame and MUGA (Multi Use Games Area), this will be the Year 5 & 6 play area.

 

In the courtyard playground there is a daily timetable of activities. On any particular day this may include using skipping ropes, hula hoops, climbing our climbing net or climbing wall and even bike and scooter riding.

 

For children who would prefer a less energetic lunchtime we have a quiet reading corner, board games and even a life size Connect 4 strategy game. We believe there is something for every child, whatever their interests.

 

After School Activities
We have a rich and diverse Enrichment club program which usually takes place between 3.15pm and 4.15pm every day during term time.

 

The PE and Sport orientated clubs include:

 

  • Ballet
  • Football
  • Gymnastics
  • Hockey
  • Rugby
  • Basketball
  • Multi skills

 

Swimming
We believe swimming is an important skill that allows our pupils to feel safe and confident in and around water. Swimming is a low impact form of exercise and can open the door to many recreational activities. We are dedicated to increasing our pupils’ confidence in the water and promoting swimming and water safety and we provide each child in Year 3 with swimming lessons throughout the year. Our  children have their lessons with Fusion Lifestyle at the South Norwood swimming pool.
