At Monega we follow the National Curriculum for all subjects. The curriculum contains the programmes of study and attainment targets for all subjects, at all key stages. All local authority-maintained schools in England must be teaching these programmes of study from September 2014.
Please see below for the details of the National Curriculum for PE.
The Sports Premium
The Government has provided funding of £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2015/16 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and has seen money going directly to primary school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of PE and sport for all their children. The sport funding can only be spent on PE and sport provision in schools.
In PE pupils follow a programme which includes dance, gymnastics and games. As well as focusing on the individual child’s needs through activities like apparatus work, we also develop their co-operative skills via team games such as netball and football. The PE curriculum is a continuously evolving subject. The teachers are able to modify and adapt parts of the curriculum to best suit the specific pupils we have each year. The topics can change depending on the pupils’ ability and learning needs. The pupils are now becoming more adept at implementing their skills into wider range of sporting environments. Swimming is also an important aspect of PE. At present children in Years 4 pupils are offered the opportunity to learn to swim.
We actively compete in a range of tournaments held by Cumberland school. The competitions cover pupils as young as Yr1 all the way to Yr6 in a large range of sports. Pupils from Monega consistently do well in these events and always demonstrate excellent sportsmanship.
