At Farnborough Road Infant School we are sporting stars! We want all our children to love physical activity. We want them to have no limits to what their ambitions are and grow up wanting to be teachers, personal trainers, dancers, nutritionists, sports journalists or gold medal winners!
We want all children to be able to participate in a balanced and inclusive program that offers a wide range of physical activities; indoor and outdoor sports which boost confidence, encourage teamwork and good sportsmanship. We want our children to enjoy growing in physical competence, confidence, motivation and with a developing knowledge and understanding they will be enabled to adopt a healthy attitude towards life-long physical activity.
Our Physical curriculum promotes a positive attitude to exercise and skills, encouraging a desire to improve and live a healthy active lifestyle.
The FRIS Physical curriculum not only meets National Curriculum requirements but will provide memorable P.E. lessons that will develop their Physical capital and prepare them for the next stage in their education.
Our children have access to numerous out of school hours clubs eg. Football, Taekwondo, Gymnastics, Cheerleading and Specialist coaches in our PE Lessons funded through the use of our Sports Premium funding in PE lessons such as Rugby, Yoga and Dance. Each year Year 2 also thoroughly enjoy a trip to Rock and River, a local Outward Bounds Centre where they step out of their comfort zones and try a number of physical activities many would never get the opportunity to try such as canoeing, rock climbing and archery.
The Physical curriculum has been carefully built and the learning opportunities and assessment opportunities for each year group ensure progression and repetition in terms of embedding key learning, knowledge and skills.
Our PE curriculum offers an excellent differentiated range of exciting sporting opportunities and physical activities. Our Caterpillar classes enjoy music and movement sessions, EYFS develop their skills in Motor Magic and Sticky Kids and Key Stage 1 continue to hone their skills in Dance lessons and performance opportunities at the local theatre.
From Early Years to the end of Key Stage 1 we promote the basic skills of throwing, catching, running, jumping and encourage their application in a variety of sports and games.
We have been able to use additional Sports Premium funding, provided by the Government, to further improve our provision by offering staff training, access to local competitive events and more club opportunities.
Our Children have commented that they love PE, enjoying climbing to the top of the big frame in the Hall, playing football at the Liverpool training ground, going to dance at the Sefton Dance festival, learning how to ride their bikes, improve their gymnastics skills to mention only a few positive remarks.
We strive for every child to achieve their full potential in all physical activities, develop a love of Physical Education, be ready for their next stage in learning and inspire aspirations for the future career paths.
