Sport

At Roydon School we deliver a broad and balanced physical education (PE) curriculum which aims to develop pupils' physical competence, confidence and their ability to use these to perform in a range of activities. It contributes to their overall development by helping them to lead full, active and healthy lives.

Schools are provided with a PE & Sports Grant  - this grant must be spent on improving the provision of PE and sport within school but schools have the freedom to choose how this is done. Please follow this link to find out more about the impact of this grant at Roydon School.

PE sessions

Children in Key stage 1 and 2 participate in two hours of PE each week following the Physical Education Curriculum.

The Physical Education Curriculum is comprised of:

  • Athletics: To practise and develop basic actions in running, throwing and jumping. To develop their accuracy, speed, height, length and distance.
  • Dance: To respond imaginatively to a variety of stimuli in order to show moods, feelings, ideas and create simple characters and narrative in movement.
  • Gymnastics: To perform confidently with varying degrees of control a simple range of actions, such as running, jumping, rolling, climbing, transferring weight, balancing, swinging and to link a series of movement with changes of direction, levels, speed, tension and rhythm. To be able to perform skills and sequences on the apparatus.To be able to remember, select and repeat a sequence of movements, to practise through rehearsals and adapt, practice and refine these actions. To share, lift, carry, place and move apparatus safely.
  • Games: To experience elements of game play which include chasing, dodging, avoiding and awareness of space and other players. Team play and interation with others.
  • Outdoor and adventure activities: To explore the potential for physical activities within the immediate environment. Undertake simple orientation activities. Apply physical skills out of doors on suitable equipment and develop an awareness of basic safety practices.
  • Swimming (Key Stage 2): To develop confidence in water and explore different strokes. To show an understanding of water safety and codes of hygiene and courtesy for using swimming pools.

PE Kit

Each class will participate in an indoor and outdoor PE lesson every week. The outdoor lesson will take place whatever the weather so please ensure your child has appropriate kit.

The kit is as follows:-

  • Track suits for outdoor activities during colder weather
  • T-shirt
  • Trainers (these will get muddy)
  • Change of socks
  • Waterproof and gloves for cold, wet weather.
  • Carrier bag to put wet, muddy clothes to take home
  • No jewellery is allowed during PE - if earrings are worn, your child will be asked to remove them.

If a pupil forgets their kit, a spare one will be provided for them to wear. However, if they persistently forget their kit, their parents will be contacted.

Competitive Tournaments

At Roydon we are fortunate to be an active member of the Harlow School Sports Partnership. this enables the children in Key Stage 2 to compete competitively, in a range of well organised tournaments against other local primary schools. The year 5/6 children also take part in the Harlow Primary Schools Football League and Cup competition, which is run throughout the year.

Children in year 1 and 2 have an opportunity to compete in a fun mini athletics tournament which is organised by Burnt Mill Academy.

As a school, every half term, each class participates in an intra-sports tournament within their key stage. This allows all children to participate competitively against their known peers.

Sports Day

This is an annual mix of sporting events and competitive races for all year groups. Points are accumulated throughout the morning as children compete in their house groups. The trophy is awarded to the house with the highest total score. In the afternoon, points are accumulated through non-competitive fun sports and a second trophy is awarded to the house with the highest total score.

Parents are more than welcome to watch and encourage their child in a sporting and supportive manner.

Ways to support your child in PE at home

  • Play active games with your children to help them to develop their coordination and movement. For example: throwing and catching, tag, bowling, racquet sports, basketball and football.
  • Try to encourage your child to play outdoors (if is safe to do so) on their bike, scooter or roller blades/skates.
  • Take them to a park which has climbing frames and swings once a week, so they are able to develop their coordination skills by climbing and moving along the apparatus. this will help them to improve their strength and stamina.
  • Help your child to understand the importance of leading an active lifestyle, including healthy eating. If you able, try to walk to the shops / school / friend's house instead of taking the car.
  • If your child shows a keen interest in a sport they have learnt at school or seen on TV, try to encourage them to join an out of school club like football, gymnastics, swimming, tennis etc.
