Dinglewell Infant School
About Dinglewell Infant School
Dinglewell Infant School is situated on the outskirts of Gloucester.
Dinglewell’s aim is to treat every child as an individual and provide a secure, safe, happy and welcoming environment that they can thrive to learn in.
We had originally written our own scheme of work that linked to Fundamental Movement Skills. However, we decided to implement Complete PE as we felt it would give our school a clearly defined progression of learning.
As PE Subject Leader, making sure that every teacher completed PE assessments has always been a challenge. Complete PE offered a simple and manageable approach to this for teachers.
We also really wanted teachers to feel confident in teaching PE rather than buying in an expert teacher or company. It’s important to us that children have their class teacher teaching them PE as they do in their other subjects. The videos helped with CPD and to develop their confidence. The plans are easy to follow.
Before implementing Complete PE, we delivered an inset for staff. This ensured that they understood how to use the new scheme. Staff are really pleased that they can print off and annotate the plans, allowing them to make the learning bespoke to their class.
We have purchased new equipment too, so that the whole scheme could be implemented effectively.
What impact has Complete PE had/is having in your school?
Since we have implemented Complete PE, we have had positive pupil and parent feedback. One thing that stood out from our recent pupil voice questionnaire, was that more pupils now enjoy their PE lessons.
Parents and pupils now understand why we predominantly focus on Fundamental Movement Skills and not a sport specific curriculum.
Pupils understand the term ‘physical literacy’ and what that looks like.
Staff are gaining more confidence teaching the whole PE curriculum and not just dance.
We can afford the sustainable membership each year and hope that this will continue after the PE and School Sport Premium too!
