PE and Sports

The continuing provision of the Primary PE and Sports Premium facilitates our vision, inspired by God’s love, to empower and raise the aspirations of all the children at our academy. Enabling them to grow and flourish to be the best versions of themselves regardless of ability or background. We are committed to providing high quality and varied PE and Sporting opportunities for all our pupils and this was recognised by our School Games Silver Award and nomination for Shepway Primary School of the Year for 2019. Our PE Coordinator was honoured by being bestowed with the Shepway Award for Primary PE Teacher of the Year 2018-19 due to her passion and endeavour to ensure that all our children are valued in the eyes of God, so that they can achieve their full potential.

We aim to achieve this by providing ongoing professional development for teaching staff, maintaining and developing links with sports providers such as Shepway Sports Trust and Folkestone Sports Centre, to provide competitive and non-competitive experiences. In addition to this, providing opportunities within school for children to organise and participate in additional activities during lunch times and after school.

Through these experiences and engagement in team events, it is our belief that not only will children develop their physical skills, but also their moral, spiritual and social skills, such as friendship, hope, thankfulness and forgiveness in accordance with our Christian Values.

 

Change for Life Club/Active Health Club

Initiatives that we promote through our sports premium funding during our lunchtime are Change for Life Club and Active Health Club. These focus on promoting teamwork, healthy life styles and problem solving skills through a series of physical challenges, games and tasks. For more information on this programme or for activities or recipes that your child or even your whole family could enjoy as part of an active lifestyle please visit:

Additional swimming provision.

At Christ Church we are especially keen to support our children in their swimming development. It is an expectation that by the end of Year 6 each child should be able to swim 25 metres unaided. Therefore we have now recruited a swimming instructor to provide swimming lessons for Years 1 to 4. Year 5 and 6 will continue to have their sessions at Folkestone Sports Centre. This year we have also introduced more after school clubs run by a fully qualified swimming instructor to provide further opportunities for our children to swim. In Year 5, less confident swimmers are identified and monitored. Upon entering Year 6 these vulnerable pupils are invited to join one of these after school clubs with the intent to raise swimming standards in line with government guide lines. Once pupils are on course to reach their 25 metres target, other vulnerable pupils will be given the opportunity to access this provision.
