P.E. and Sports


Since the Olympics in 2012, the government have wanted to continue the sporting legacy through our children. Therefore P.E. has become an important part of the weekly routine and more emphasis is being made on how P.E. is taught.

As a result the government have given schools a total of £10,000 for the school to use for P.E. Ofsted have taken a key interest in how this money is being used and whether or not P.E. is benefiting our children's fitness. 

Christ Church has benefited from this funding by employing a Sports Apprentice to help deliver P.E across the curriculum within school and at after school clubs. We have purchased new sports equipment and trained staff to enhance P.E. lessons. It also enabled us to invite professional coaches to deliver different sporting activities.

The Action Plan

In order to make sure P.E. is improving and benefiting the children at Christ Church we have created an action plan. This will help make sure targets are being met and that the correct provisions are being met. We regularly evaluate our action plan, click here to read a copy of our latest evaluation.


The main purpose of our money and action plan, is to improve teaching. To do this we need to improve subject knowledge and confidence in teaching different sports and activities. We have therefore invested in a range of outside support.

Miss Ball our P.E. Co-ordinator, will be making sure that this help is having an impact on teaching. She will be doing this through observations and questionnaires with the teachers.


Another are we wanted to improve was our afterschool clubs. We wanted to include a broad range of sports both competitive and non-competitive. We have achieved this through investment in our Sports Apprentice, parent coaches and timetabling staff affectively.

We also want to improve attendance at clubs. We particularly want to improve club attendance from children who attract Pupil Premium, who may struggle to attend after school clubs. Therefore we are begining to introduce lunch time clubs, which will help to involve these children.

Events - We also want to be involved in a larger number of events the partnership hold. We particularly want to focus on more events for KS1. So far we have been involved in the KS1 Agility Festival and Basketball Tournament.


The main focus of our P.E. lessons is to improve fitness. We wanted to make sure all children are benefiting from the lessons. We chose the 'bleep test' as a way of assesing the children's fitness. This will take place each half term and improvements logged.

We are also developing a scheme of work which incorporates fitness for all year groups through a range of sports. We have developed against the expectations of the new curriculum.
