At Ravensworth Terrace Primary School we believe that a high quality and enjoyable physical education programme is a vital part of a child’s development. We aim to provide the opportunity for our children to safely experience a range of sporting activities for their fun and enjoyment. Through carefully planned PE and sports activities we aim to ensure that all children are happy and enjoy PE, thus raising participation levels both in and out of school and therefore in turn, promoting healthy lifestyles.
We strive to provide high quality PE and sports teaching in both curriculum and after school clubs. We aim to ensure that within their own level of ability all children can achieve and experience success, thereby enabling them to reach their full potential.
We value the benefits of PE and sport to build children’s self-confidence, esteem and self-worth that is character building and essential for our pupil’s development.
We aim to provide opportunities for all children to experience competition at various levels both individually and as part of a team by means of in and out of school competitions. This will hopefully inspire children to participate fully and benefit from all aspects of sport physically, emotionally and socially.
At Ravensworth Terrace Primary School we have welcomed the Government’s announcement to extend the Sport Premium to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils and w e are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people.
In 2020 100% of our 11 year olds met the national curriculum requirement to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres, 100% use a range of strokes effectively and 100% perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
