Physical Education has always been a high priority for Threshfield Primary School. KS2 children are planned and taught by a PE specialist teacher and our KS1 children are taught by our PE coordinator. UKS2 children have weekly swimming lessons in the Autumn term and the LKS2 children have weekly swimming sessions in the Spring term.
In the Summer term the children are also taught Tag Rugby by a specialist Rugby coach; these sessions are celebrated with a cluster festival where every single child takes part in the tournament.
We encourage sporting participation in our cluster festivals with lots of our teams reaching finals throughout the the year.
Children in year 5 and 6 take part in adventurous outdoor residentials at Buckden House and Carlton Lodge.
Sports Premium Funding.
This money is allocated annually in our school budget and is designated specifically for developing children’s physical education.
We spend the vast majority of this funding paying for two half day sessions at Upper Wharfedale School for KS2 children. This provides our pupils with high quality resources and specialist teaching in swimming and all other areas of sports.
The remaining amount is spent on tag rugby coaching and tournaments for KS2, as well as some specialist PE teaching for KS1 on our school site.
