As part of the National Curriculum the children participate in two hours of Physical Education a week.
PE lessons are taught by class teachers however, if your child is in Year 3 or 4 they will participate in one term of swimming and this is taught externally.
This year the school achieved the Gold Games Mark in sport.
Every time you spend £30 in any Aldi store you will receive a Team GB sticker. Take your stickers to school to help complete your poster. Once complete with 300 stickers the poster will be sent back to Aldi and the school will receive an exclusive sports kit and be in with a chance to win £20,000 for the school!
At Queenswell the children compete in a range of competitions. The competitions are either ran in school, where the children compete against each other or the children represent the school and compete against other schools.
Please come and join Mrs Marlow at lunchtimes by the year 3 and 4 doors.
In 2013, the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport announced new funding of £150 million to support the delivery of PE and school sport. Funding is being allocated to all state-maintained secondary, primary, middle and special schools (including non-maintained special schools), academies and pupil referral units with primary aged pupils. The PE grant is £8,000 preschool plus £5 per primary pupil, or £500 per pupil for schools with 16 less primary children.
The government has given extra funding to schools to be spent on sport in school. The aim is to increase sport provision for children and also to improve the quality of the provision they receive.
PE and school sport play an important part in the life of Queenswell Junior School. We believe that PE plays an important part in the holistic development of our children and through this they learn more about themselves through positive experiences leading to life long habits as well as improving their mental health and social interaction.
Queenswell Junior School acknowledges the importance of physical activity and we are committed in providing our children with healthy active lifestyles.
Ensuring that teaching and learning is good or better.
Ensuring appropriate provision is made for gifted and talented and SEN children.
Increasing participation of physical activities.
Promoting healthy, active lifestyles.
The grant for 2019/20 is £19900 and this is how we plan to spend it:
All schools have to spend the Sports Funding on improving their provision of physical education and school sport but there is freedom to choose how we do it.
At Queenswell Junior School we believe that our children require an innovative and varied PE curriculum with extra-curricular opportunities.
