PE at the Federation
At the Trumpington Federation, we passionately believe in the power of physical education and sport. Our lessons are inspirational, inclusive and physically demanding; allowing all children the opportunity to improve their skills, tactical understanding and fitness. Our curriculum is broad and balanced, covering both individual and team activities, ensuring children are engaged and excel. Children will cover a wide range of activities in lessons including; Multi Skills, Netball, Tag Rugby, Tennis, Gymnastics, Dance, Orienteering, Athletics, Football, Swimming, Ball Handling and Health Related Fitness.
We use our Sport Premium funding to employ a Federation Specialist PE Teacher, who teaches across both schools. This ensures that our children receive the very highest standards of PE teaching in addition to providing continued in-house professional development for all staff. Children have two hours of PE a week, which is either taught by our PE Specialist, HLTA or Class teacher. At least one hour of PE is taught by our PE Specialist.
In addition to our rigorous curriculum lessons, we also offer a comprehensive extra-curricular sporting programme. These activities cater for the individual athlete and the team player. All sports are delivered by highly qualified coaches from a number of National Governing Bodies and are regularly monitored and observed to ensure a high quality experience is always enjoyed by our students. We offer a variety of activities at both schools including Gymnastics, Dodgeball, Target Sports, Football and Athletics for the children to enjoy.
Children also take part in a variety of inter competitions held at both schools. These include, Tag Rugby, Multi Skills festivals, Athletics and Football Festivals. These take place during lesson time and organised by our PE Specialist.
We believe that all children deserve a high quality experience of PE and Sport throughout their school life. We ensure that our children develop the physical, emotional and communicative skills that will allow them to excel and enjoy sport both in their formative years and for life long participation.
PE Kit Policy
Pupils should be dressed in a manner which is appropriate to the activity and which allows full freedom of movement without danger or snagging. Please can ensure your child has the correct PE kit so they can fully take part in their lessons. Your child should wear a t-shirt, jumper, shorts or trousers and trainers. Plimsolls can be worn but trainers will provide more support for your child. If your child forgets to bring their PE kit they will be given clean kit provided by the school to borrow and a letter will be sent home to remind parents.
Long hair must be tied back securely and fingernails should be appropriately short to prevent injury; this applies to both boys and girls.
All watches, jewellery and cultural adornments must be removed. This includes earrings (studs and sleepers). Children must be able to take their earrings out independently; it would help for younger children if their earrings are removed for the day. If your child is unable to take their earring out, they will be able to take part in low risk activities or will be provided with alternative activities.
