PE

    At Northfield House, P.E and sport are seen as playing a vitally important role in pupils’ development as rounded and physically active young people. In recent years, a substantial amount of money has been allocated towards teaching expertise and resources. Mr Smart who is a qualified lifeguard and coach, has been the specialist sports coach at Northfield House for the last 10 years. We will be inviting sports coaches from the Football Association to deliver Physical Education Lessons. Leicester City legends run our multi-sport club and football club. Leicester Riders run an after-school basketball club, organised development days and hoops for health tournaments at the Leicester Sports Arena. Dance, a children’s yoga (mindfulness) lunch time club and Northfield’s own ex- professional boxer Rendall Munroe delivers a boxercise after-school club.

    Here at Northfield House we encourage children to be active by promoting campaigns such as Move it Boom Rio, the daily mile (children fit for life) and walk to school initiatives. Furthermore, we will ensure children are doing at least 2 hours of P.E per week by investing in new equipment for classes to use during morning motivation. To show our commitment to delivering an outstanding P.E curriculum, all teachers will be upskilled in how to deliver outstanding P.E lessons and activities by qualified P.E professionals.

    P.E is taught to all children, from the foundation stage to year 6, enabling them to develop good basic skills at a young age, which they then build upon as they move through the school, through a carefully structured and challenging programme. Northfield House aims to provide children with positive experiences which will develop an enthusiasm in the children which will see them inspired and involved in sport for many years to come.

    At Northfield House, we offer a wide variety of individual and team activities: traditional and sports hall athletics, basketball, bench ball, cricket, dance, football, gymnastics, netball, rounders, rugby, swimming, tennis, hockey. We also appreciate the effect of physical activity on enabling children to focus and engage in their learning. In addition to this, we want to give children who are gifted and talented in an area of Physical Education or Sport, opportunities to develop that gift or talent by having strong links with local sports clubs such as the Leicester Riders and Leicester City Football Club. We also organise friendly matches and inter-school tournaments within the Rushymead Educational Trust.

    Purpose of Physical Education outlined by the Department for Education:

     

    ‘A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.’

     

    Aims of National Curriculum:

     

    The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:

    • develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
    • are physically active for sustained periods of time
    • engage in competitive sports and activities
    • Lead healthy, active lives.
    • The statements below outline the key attainment targets for each key stage:

    Key Stage One: Pupils should develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. They should be able to engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.

     

    Key Stage Two: Pupils should continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. They should enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They should develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.

     

    Morning Motivation

     

    At Northfield, we have fifteen minutes of morning motivation four times a week. Morning motivation is a time when the children can be physically active in hundreds of ways. As a whole school we follow a programme called GoNoodle.com. GoNoodle makes movement and mindfulness an integral part of the day, at school and at home.

    GoNoodle promotes:

    More movement, more mindfulness and deeper Learning for any subject, any topic and any standard.

     

    Our aims are to:

    • Improve behaviour and attention
    • Better academic performance
    • Strengthen classroom cohesion

     

    After-School/Lunch time Clubs

     

    Currently the school offers a variety of sport clubs:

    • Football club (Leicester City legends Muzzy Izzet and Steve Walsh Academy)
    • Multi-sports club, for KS1 and KS2,
    • Mindfulness (Kids yoga),
    • Netball club,
    • Boxercise (Rendall Munroe- Northfield’s own boxing bin man)
    • Basketball club (Ran by Leicester Riders coaches)
    • Dance club (KS1)
    • Fun club (A physically active club with fun activities)

     

    THE DAILY MILE IN THE CURRICULUM

     

    ‘Supports children’s Health & Wellbeing – physical, mental, social and emotional. Regular physical activity is known to raise attainment.’

     

    Our school has invested in an all-weather track to encourage our children to be physically active in school, all year round.
