PE & Sport Provision

Dereham PE and Sports Premium Funding Report – please see Governors tab

At Dereham Church Infant and Nursery School, we will be promoting the benefits of an Active Lifestyle which is important in improving our children’s attendance, class functioning and retention whilst also helping to maintain a healthy body that will reduce diseases in later life such as heart problems and Type 2 diabetes.

The PE and Sport programme we deliver will also impact on our children’s wellbeing giving them a more positive self esteem. Being part of a team will not only help with communication and language but the children will start to develop good skills in problem solving and positive social behaviour such as leadership and responsibility will emerge.

Our School ensureĀ  that the staff delivering PE are suitably qualified and our programme of study offers a broad range of Out of Schools hours Sports Clubs in order to meet the needs of all pupils.

DCINS has become a Member School to the West Norwich & Dereham School Sport Partnership. This provides more opportunities for our children to participate in Competitions and Festivals throughout the year. We have entered teams in the following Sports; Gymnastics / Cross Country / Football/ Athletics and also will attend an ‘adapted Sports Festival’ with children who have not previously engaged in this type of activity.

Gymnastics Competition

Our school entered the Norfolk School Games 2019 Primary Keysteps Gymnastics Competition. A group of six children competed in the first round at Easton Gymnastics club. The children had lots of fun and were invited to compete in the finals. The children competed in the finals at the UEA SPRING gymnastic park and came 6th out of 16. They all had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed using the beams, bars, pit an trampolines.

We assess PE using a scheme of work called Jasmine PE. This assesses children against six areas: Creative, Cognitive, Health and Fitness, Physical, Social and Personal.
