The Physical Education (P.E )Team at Ryvers consists of two specialist Primary P.E Teachers; Miss Katie Taylor, P.E lead and Mr Jorge Boddy for the school. Both organise P.E across all year groups, in addition to supporting staff development in this curricular area. Together, with the support, passion and enthusiasm of the whole staff, leadership, parents and governors, they offer superb, unique experiences for pupils here at Ryvers.
P.E and Sport are an important part of not only our holistic curriculum but also part of children's daily life; as a school, we provide as many opportunities as possible to enable pupils to excel in a wide range of sports. We continually look to develop and improve what we do whilst aiming to build a love of sport in our pupils - whatever sport(s) that is!
In KS1 (Year 1 and 2), teaching is delivered by specialist teachers, Miss Taylor and Mr Boddy, once a week. For KS2 (Years 3 - 6), teaching is delivered by Miss Taylor and Mr Boddy once a week.
Physical Education, lunch time and after school clubs are an essential part of the daily life at Ryvers. There are a wide range of sporting activities to encourage all children to be fully involved. These include: Football for both boys and girls, Dance, Tennis, Tag Rugby, Gymnastics, Netball, Basketball, Ballet, Cricket, Benchball, Boccia, New Age Kurling, Handball and Boxercise.
All children in Octopus (Autistic Resources Base) participate in a 60 minute session once a week with Miss Taylor and Mr Boddy, and also participate in 1:1 sessions on a regular basis developing key skills.
P.E. is structured to develop skills in a variety of team sports, as well as gymnastics and dance, year-on-year in line with the National Curriculum (2014). Pupils are taught the skills to improve performance and accuracy of many sports. Our teaching methods also aim to encourage pupils to develop socially and personally as well as physically.
P.E and sport at Ryvers are fully inclusive; everyone is expected to take part in P.E and all pupils are encouraged to engage in clubs. Children enjoy their P.E, and many pupils go on to join clubs and participate in the events and competitions that we provide at Ryvers. In addition, we work in close partnership with Slough Sports Network and other local organisations. As a result, children are given opportunities to excel in their chosen sport in local and regional competitions.
