Statement of Intent 2021 – 2022:
A place where our children, adults and community can grow and thrive rooted in
Kindness, Fellowship and Confidence.
At Stanhope Barrington C of E Primary, we aim to inspire an active generation of children to enjoy PE lessons and encourage them to access a wide range of different sports. We provide opportunities for the children to take part in competitive activities alongside developing their confidence, sportsmanship and promote healthy lifestyles whilst maintaining a fully inclusive PE Curriculum. Our curriculum ensures children engage in a minimum of two taught physical sessions per week utilising our comprehensive PE resource (Complete PE). We focus on the physical, cognitive, social, well-being and development goals ensuring everyone succeeds in PE. We also focus on getting children moving again following the impact of the Covid Pandemic linking PE with other curriculum areas such as Science and RSHE. Beginning in Early Years, the children are taught to a high standard, learning the fundamental skills that are extended and adapted to both support and challenge. At the beginning of Key Stage 2, the children will learn to swim and will continue until children are confident in the water and meet the national curriculum expectations for swimming. Stanhope is based on the River Wear and therefore our curriculum focuses on water safety and cold-water shock as our children often access the river and local outdoor swimming pool. The children are exposed to a wide range of clubs and school visitors which supports their experiences, skills and curiosity. We also facilitate participation in festivals and competitions with other primary and secondary schools in our local area. This instils life-long values such as fair play and cooperation. Positioned in the heart of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, we can provide the children with visits to Stanhope Outdoor Swimming Pool and Outdoor Adventure Centres enabling us to deliver a broad range of Outdoor Adventure Activities whilst utilising our local area.
