All young people at Jubilee are given the opportunity to live healthy and active lives. Our school offers an ever-expanding extra-curricular programme including; multi-sports, gymnastics, futsal, girls and boy’s football and street dancing.
A positive experience of sport and physical activity at a young age builds a lifetime habit of participation, and is central to meeting the government’s ambitions for a world-class education system.
Physical activity has numerous benefits for children and young people’s physical health, as well as their mental wellbeing (increasing self-esteem and emotional wellbeing and lowering anxiety and depression), and children who are physically active are happier, more resilient and more trusting of their peers.
We have used our Physical Education and Sports Premium funding to create opportunities for our children to receive specialist training, replenish sports equipment and to access competitive sports. A balance of individual and team, cooperative and competitive activities cater for each individual’s ability and potential.
Our aim for Physical Education is simple; we want to ensure all children get into the habit of playing and enjoying sport as sufficient daily activity can improve behaviour, enhance academic achievement, instil confidence, determination and discipline.
What does PE look like at Jubilee?
All pupils receive two hours of sport a week
(swimming is included as 1 hour in Year 3).
We have bought into SG Sport planning to ensure quality modules or materials for PE and sport.
Qualified sports coaches deliver specialist activities during lunchtime.
Specialist coaches also run after school sports clubs and holiday clubs.
Children are supported and we engage the least active children through new or additional clubs.
Inset has provided professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport.
Children regularly participate in sports competitions in school, and we are continually looking to increase pupils’ participation in School Games events, local football leagues and other tournament competitions across a range of sports.
We have developed strong links with Sustrans a charity committed to increasing opportunities for people to cycle, scoot and walk. We offer Cycle Confident cycling lessons to all pupils in years 5 and 6 on an annual basis.
