Jenyns First School and Nursery

Our Children, Our Future.



At Jenyns First School, our aim is to inspire all children to develop a love of physical activity and sport. Through good physical education, whole school values and a whole child approach, we aim to nurture confident, resilient children who will strive for their personal best. We listen to our children’s wants and needs and provide them with a range of active experiences and clubs. We want to aid our children in obtaining the values and skills to celebrate and respect the success of others, as well as modestly celebrating their own successes. We aim to ensure that our delivery of physical education allows all children to have the skills and mindset to leave us with the capabilities to be successful in their sporting challenges and active lifestyles.



Our PE lessons are planned using the Get Set 4 PE platform, which aligns with our core values, our whole child approach to PE and the objectives laid out in the National Curriculum. Get Set 4 PE is planned using a 2 year rolling programme, so that progression is built into the scheme, which ensures our children are increasingly challenged as they move up through the school. Together we create a broad and balanced curriculum that is exciting for our children to learn through.


The long-term plan maps out the PE activities covered in each term during the key stage. Our medium-term plans give details of each unit of work for each term. These schemes of work provide an overview of the unit, links to other areas of the National Curriculum and assessment criteria for that unit. The short-term lesson plans provide opportunities for children of all abilities to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding in each activity area.

Lessons are planned to utilise cross curricular links, as well as the context of the school (including school and local grounds, forest school area and access to facilities and community role models, such as sports coaches, with specialist skills). We work closely with the community coaches from North East Herts School Sports Partnership, who regularly teach PE lessons, as well as leading lunchtime and after school enrichment clubs. We frequently attend and host events organised by the school partnership with NEHSSP, including multi skills, speed stacking, netball, football and dance events.


The children complete each key stage with a high proficiency in each aspect of PE. Children are aware of the link between physical activity and good mental health and understand it’s significance as part of a healthy lifestyle. Our children are equipped with the knowledge and skills, preparing them for their next step in their school career and beyond.


Our Sports Premium is strategically allocated in line with the School Development Plan. Please go to the Sports Premium tab under information.
