Sport & PE
As a school we want our children to be active participants in all our PE opportunities, whether that is class PE lessons, year group team challenges, a whole school event or a local sport competition.
We plan enrichment activities which encourage our children to discover new sports such as BMX, speed skipping and athletics. Each year we provide our children with a range of after school clubs and lunch time activities which promote a love of sport and a healthy lifestyle. These include a range of Premier Sport clubs, girls' football club and extra coaching for sport competitions.
At Nene and Ramnoth School we love to take part in inter-school sports events and competitions. These events teach our children how to play competitively, be good team players and to experience wider school sports competitions, such as Panathlon, Dodgeball and Football.
Each class participates in the 'Daily Mile'. This initiative encourages every child to complete a circuit and to try and improve their time every half term. Each child also completes a Health and Fitness tracker which encourages them to improve their fitness score. Our Play Leader team consists of Year 5 and Year 6 pupils who are trained to deliver support to our younger children. They teach the children how to play team games and work together during lunchtimes.
We use the 'Striver' PE scheme of work. Striver has been created with a sole purpose: to improve primary aged pupils' long-term physical and mental wellbeing. We aim to do this by ensuring children of all abilities feel motivated and engaged, and teachers of all experience levels feel confident in their teaching. The children’s effort and ability are assessed each half term.
Teachers access professional development through Witchford School Sports Partnership, working alongside their coaches to plan and implement high quality PE lessons. We also use external sports providers, such as Premier Education, who provide us with well trained, motivated coaches who teach the pupils a wide range of sports using school equipment.
