PE, Sport and Physical Activity

PE, Sport and Physical Activity

We have a simple vision for PE, sport and physical activity at Wroughton Academies – in that all pupils leaving Wroughton Academies should be physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

All children at Wroughton receive 2 hours per week of PE lessons, In addition to a wide range of before school, lunch-time and after-school clubs.  We also regularly take part in a range of local and other sporting competitions.

Pupils from KS1 & KS2 recieve swimming lessons from fully ASA qualified swimming teachers

We are proud that 85% of our Year 6 pupils are able to confidently swim over 25m and can use a range of swimming strokes competently as well as perform safe self rescue in different water based situations

We received £38,109 of government funding to support our development of PE, sport and physical activity in the year 2018 – 2019 (total amount for Wroughton Infant and Wroughton Junior Academies). Some of our significant achievements were: Magic Breakfast – ensuring all children receive a free breakfast, additional swimming in KS1 to support KS2 swimming, 3 x specialist permanent PE staff delivering all PE lessons, increase in local and national sporting events/competitions, effective PE units of work, lesson plans and resources, increased use of school grounds and space for PE and sport, increase in lunchtime and after-school clubs and high parental engagement at sporting events, such as sports days.          

We anticipate receiving around £38,000 for 2019 – 2020 and our strategic goals are below:

  • Continued focus on swimming at Year 2 and 5.
  • Additional after-school clubs and competitive events.
  • 100% engagement in PE lessons through enriching lessons.
  • Development of expertise for teaching and increased profile of high quality PE.
  • Gather more pupil and parental voice information on perception of PE from children across all years.
