Physical Education is not only an integral part of our school’s curriculum it is an essential element of our school ethos. The status of Physical Education has been steadily on the rise over this academic year.
All children in KS1 and KS2 receive two lessons of high quality Physical Education each week as well as Active 15 sessions with their class teacher. The two lessons are split between Games, Gymnastics and Athletics (Summer Term). At Bush Hill Park Primary School we have a specialist Performing Arts Teacher who delivers Dance lessons across the school. When delivering the curriculum we follow the Enfield Scheme of Work, written by the Enfield PE Team. This has the KS1 & KS2 National Curriculum expectations at the forefront of their work. The Gymnastics curriculum is delivered by our own sports coaches, games and athletics curriculum is team taught with our sports coaches and class teachers for continual professional development. In addition, in Year 5, children receive weekly swimming lessons for half a year delivered by the expert staff at Southbury Leisure Centre.
At Bush Hill Park Primary School we believe it is vital to embed the importance of Physical Education as well as the fun element of being active within Early Years. In Early Years the PE timetable is slightly more flexible, children receive one lesson of PE each week along with physically active play throughout the day.
Extra Curricular - Summer Term
At Bush Hill Park Primary School we offer a wide variety of seasonal clubs for children in both KS1 and KS2. We feel it is essential that our children to gain experience a variety of different sports. This includes; Boxing, Fencing and in the summer Tri-Golf with our local golf club. Participants from these clubs then get the opportunity to represent the school in borough competitions using the skills that they have acquired.
In order to encourage as many children to be active as possible and enrich extra-curricular clubs we use external coaches as well as our in school sports coaches. We currently have a link with Tottenham Hotspur in the Community where they provide us with a coach who trains the girl’s football team.
