Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Physical Education

At Harris Academy Philip Lane we believe Physical Education and Sport plays an important role in making our vision statement a reality for every pupil, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better. As well as the obvious health benefits in PE,  our children also learn to develop the qualities of discipline, resilience, communication, team work, and ambition, leading to improved concentration, attitude, and academic achievement. It also supports our strong commitment to arts education through the teaching of dance which is taught to all children.

We have welcomed the Government’s announcement in June 2013 to provide additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource in delivering high quality PE lessons for everyone, in addition to more opportunities for competitive sport and clubs for all our children.

Here at Philip Lane we invested our Sports Premium money in a full-time Physical Education Specialist Teacher. This means that all our children from Year 1 up to Year 6 will have their curriculum delivered by a PE teacher. This will enable our children to make the greatest progress at a “skill hungry” time in their physical development. Fundamental to their development is the delivery of the skill cornerstones of agility, balance, and co-ordination in  Key Stage 1.

In Key Stage 2 these skills are further developed through a varied curriculum of sport specific activity. We believe our Sports Premium investment is the best way to positively impact our children’s physical development and learning. Our investment is the best way to ensure a legacy of high quality PE and sport exists here at Philip Lane.

The investment in a specialist ensures:

1. The HPAPL high quality Physical Education curriculum to ensure pupils are at (with a high proportion above) age-related expectations via:

  • The Physical Education curriculum is delivered by a specialist to all children who ensure all children have access to high  quality PE.
  • All children at Philip Lane (Reception to Year 6) are now physically assessed in PE.
  • The specialist teacher is regularly observed by senior management as part of the school’s quality assurance.
  • Development and delivery of the Sport Leader Playground programme to year 6.
  • Two inset training sessions this year delivered to all Lunchtime Supervisors.
  • Half termly monitoring and reporting on playground issues.
  • Affiliation to National and Local PE organisations.

2. An increase in extra-curricular and competitive sports opportunities via:

  • A range of after school sports clubs from years 1-6.
  • Haringey school sports partnership competitions including cross country, football, basketball, tag rugby, gymnastics, tennis, athletics and many more.
  • A competitive calendar of football fixture.
  • Competing in the annual Harris Federation Athletics Competition at Crystal Palace.
  • The delivery of the annual individual sports days for KS1 and KS2.

3. Healthy Active Lifestyles: Ensuring all our children have access to regular exercise via:

  • Development and delivery of the Sport Leader Playground programme to year 6 students
  • The purchase of new playground equipment such as the Climbing Frame.
