Sport

     

The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competitions across their school and into the community.  

The school games mark gold award recognises all the PE that we do in school - the lessons we teach, the clubs we run, the coaches we bring in, the links we have with sports clubs and all of the competitions we take part in. Our next challenge is to maintain this level of sport participation for the next 5 years, in order to achieve platinum and to further embed this into our school ethos.

We are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including our Sports Leaders, Sports captains and vice captains, school staff, volunteers and parents/guardians who help with transporting children to and from competitions and spectate. Without all of you this level of sport participation would not be possible.

 

The learning and teaching of Physical Education at Notley Green Primary School aims to provide all children with the opportunity to be active, healthy and enjoy the benefits of physical activity and competitive sport. Through PE, skills and values such as strategy, respect, teamwork and fairness are built. We believe primary school experiences are pivotal to the children’s future perception of physical activity and the enthusiasm and enjoyment of the pupils at Notley Green is testament to the passion and dedication of all staff. Pupils leave the school equipped to enjoy sport for all its health and social benefits. For those who relish the competitive element, they gain the skills, confidence and relevant experience to succeed at their chosen level and discipline.

Through their learning, children have the opportunity to:

  • Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities,     
  • Be physically active for sustained periods of time,
  • Engage in competitive sports and activities,
  • Lead healthy, active lives.

We strive to develop children’s knowledge of a healthy body together with how physical activity contributes to a balanced and healthy lifestyle. Sport participation provides opportunities for children to develop intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically through a range of team, group and individual experiences and opportunities.
