In EYFS, the school employs ‘Boogie Mites’ which develops pupil’s social, physical and language skills through music. It is an active, engaging session which uses props, instruments, rhythm, singing and music to develop pupil’s skills and improve readiness for learning at KS1.
In KS1 and 2, the school employs a team of specialist music staff to teach music across the school. Please see attached the music provision within the school.
The school employs two full time coaches to deliver high quality, PE sessions and wider curriculum opportunities to pupils from EYFS to Year 6. Nursery and Reception pupils work with the coaches in small groups to develop their gross motor skills in line with the EYFS curriculum.
From Year 1-6 pupils receive 2 hours of high quality PE sessions within the curriculum. Year groups are taught together which means that classes can compete or be streamed according to the need. There are at least two opportunities per term for identified pupils to participate in inter-school competitions which range from basketball, cricket, gymnastics, football.
In addition, identified pupils receive additional PE sessions throughout the year. This ranges from more able pupils, to pupils who have been identified as needing additional support in physical activity and SEND pupils who require as part of their SEN provision the development of gross motor skills.
There are daily after-school physical activities led by the coaches which pupils are able to sign up for from Year 1-6.
Include here timetables for additional sporting activities including ones within the curriculum.
Year 6 Pupil: “The coaches help us achieve the best skills we can across a range of different sporting activities.”
A specialist French teacher delivers high quality French sessions weekly across KS2. Pupils n KS1 have sessions throughout the year which focus on French songs and key phrases and are taught in class and assemblies.
