Physical Education PE

Physical Education PE provides children with the opportunity to succeed and excel in a wide range of competitive sport and other physical- demanding activities. Our programme of work is structured so all children have opportunities to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. They develop both their physical and social skills which builds character and helps to embed values such as fairness and respect. All children take part in a variety of sports and develop skills in areas such as fielding and team games, gymnastics, swimming and dance. Outside specialist teachers provide coaching and prepare children for the numerous Local Authority and interclass competitions held throughout the year. All pupils have the opportunity to perform dances and we celebrate our strong links with Chance to Dance from the Royal Ballet. Swimming is an essential part of our PE offer. We are lucky to be close to the Clapham Leisure Centre where children are taught to be safe in water as well as developing strokes and endurance. Outdoor adventure activities are partly covered in a week’s residential course in Year 6, an overnight campout in year 3 as well as planned activities on Clapham Common and the Spinney. At Clapham Manor we aim to ensure all pupils: develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities are physically active for sustained periods of time engage in competitive sports and activities lead healthy, active lives. PE is extremely important to a child’s well-being and a part of school life. We expect all children to participate with appropriate clothing for every lesson. If your child needs to be excused from his/ her lesson for medical reasons, please write a note to your child’s class teacher giving the reason. 19 Clapham Manor Primary School

PSHCE PSHCE is an important part of the curriculum at Clapham Manor. We aim to provide the highest standards of education in an inclusive environment, through effective learning and teaching for all, with a broad, balanced and personalised, relevant curriculum that includes all statutory requirements. We value equity and inclusion and believe in supporting all learners to become confident individuals able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives. They will thus become lifelong learners and responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society and deal effectively with economic, social and cultural change. Drug Education (DE) At Clapham Manor we believe that Drug Education should equip children with the knowledge, skills and attitudes they need to make informed decisions about their lifestyle, help them to learn to respect themselves and move with confidence from childhood through adolescence into adulthood – ultimately helping young people to resist drug misuse in order to achieve their full potential in society. Sex and Relationships Education (SRE) At Clapham Manor we believe that all pupils should be offered the opportunity to receive a comprehensive and well planned programme of Sex and Relationship Education as part of the PSHCE Curriculum in all year groups and specifically in Year 6 in addition to the Statutory National Curriculum Science Programmes of Study. Sex Education is taught as part of a topic called ‘Growth and Change’. This is a series of sessions looking at children’s own experiences of change, linking up with the changes they are soon to encounter in their new schools as well as within their own bodies. Parents/carers will be offered the opportunity to discuss the content and delivery of the programme with the subject coordinator and have the right to withdraw their pupils from aspects of SRE that fall outside National Curriculum Science. Collective Worship Our acts of collective worship (assemblies) are important times in the day when the children can meet together, either as a whole school in class or in phase groups. We aim to make assemblies both an educational and spiritual experience for the children. We acknowledge the diversity of faiths represented with the school and we encourage the children to reflect upon their own beliefs and our British values. Assemblies are planned at the beginning of every half term and they are organised within themes. In addition to some religious festivals acknowledged over a 2 year cycle e.g. Christmas, Easter, Diwali and Hanukah, other special events and occasions are acknowledged throughout the year. Parents/carers of the timetabled classes are invited to join us at every second Friday at 2.55pm when the children share work of special interest and we celebrate a range of educational achievements. We are an inclusive school, however parents/carers have the right to withdraw their child from Religious Education and Collective Worship. If parents/carers wish to do this they are required to state this in writing annually to the Headteacher. Parents/carers are encouraged to attend a meeting with the RE Coordinator prior to this.
