PRIORITIES for Semley school
with the use of PE premium this year Semley School has seen an increase in participation levels within sports clubs and a positive attitude towards sports and activity. We have been able to offer a wide range of after school clubs which offer opportunities for all age groups to become involved with and broaden their experience of sports and games. We have also been able to place more emphasis therefore on competitive games for the older children and train for and attend competitive fixtures throughout the year when they have been offered to us.
In particular, this year there has been an increase in the awareness of healthy lifestyles due to the fitness fun week and new activities at lunchtime. Children are more active at playtimes and lunchtimes and have more understanding of the importance of eating a balanced diet. Providing the children with pedometers at the end of fitness fun week has created an exciting incentive to remember to keep active whenever they have the opportunity.
The sports coaching provided by the two companies has given all staff opportunities to gain more confidence in teaching a range of different PE skills at different levels. Teachers and support staff now feel they have greater levels of experience in a wider PE curriculum evidence suggests that the lessons being delivered are of a high standard and promote effective learning and progress for all children.
