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 to double the sports premium providing additional funding to improve the 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. We have a specialist PE teacher and specialist sports coaches to support this. This means that our children from Year 1 through to Year 6 will have their curriculum delivered to a very high standard which 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. In addition to this we now have more opportunities for competitive sport and clubs for all our children. We have introduced a KS1 gymnastics club after school, as well as table tennis and tag rugby clubs for KS2. With more clubs being added each half term. Our Year 4, 5 and 6 children have also been entered into the Haringey Primary competitive sports calendar, where they will have the opportunity to play at some fantastic sports venues improving their skills in various different competitive sports. The children at Philip Lane thoroughly enjoy the competitions and have so far had the opportunity to take part in cross country, football, tag rugby and table tennis. Here at Philip Lane we also have a half termly sporting newsletter to provide the children and parents of Philip Lane updates on their children’s sporting success and achievements. 

We are committed to developing strong, safe swimmers at the academy and by our current cohort of Year 6 children have achieved the following level of competency: 

15% of the children can swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 meters, using a range of different strokes effectively. However extra swimming lessons will be provided for the remaining children during the summer to give them the best possibility of achieving the requirements. 

Our investment in specialist PE teachers 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 specialist teachers to all children who ensure all children have access to high quality PE. 

* All children at Philip Lane (Reception to Year 6) are physically assessed in PE. 

* The specialist teachers are regularly observed by senior management as part of the school’s quality assurance. 

* 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 Reception-6. 

* Haringey school sports partnership competitions including cross country, football, basketball, netball, table tennis, tag rugby, gymnastics, tennis, athletics and many more. 

* 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: 

* Specialist lunchtime sports coaches delivering different sports at lunchtimes. 

* The purchase of new playground equipment such as the Climbing Frame and other exciting equipment. 

* Year 6 morning running programme
