At Northlands we aim to instil a passion
and love of sport for life.
We teach pupils to be active participants, through the enjoyment of sports, whilst leading a healthy lifestyle.
The Primary PE and Sport Premium was introduced to improve the provision of physical education and school sport in Primary Schools.
At Northlands we use the funding to raise the awareness of living a healthy lifestyle. We aim to do this through promoting values and heightening the levels of engagement, by providing pupils with opportunities to exercise regularly. We offer before and after school clubs, 2 hours of PE lessons a week and we also promote active minutes within lessons as well as lunch and break time activities.
To increase pupils confidence, knowledge and skills within PE we deliver a variety of lessons where we focus specifically on developing their fundamental skills. A 'Healthy Living' programme has also been introduced to our curriculum, to provide pupils with a range of exercises and nutritional information in order to lead a healthy lifestyle.
Another opportunity we have with our funding is to increase participation in competitive sports, including developing community links and building school sports teams, this has helped us to increase the participation of all pupils and develop our skills to compete against others, which promotes our ethos: One Community - Many Cultures - Achieving Together.
