To provide staff and resources of PE and Games lessons weekly for pupils ranging from Year 3 to Year 6
PE staff from York House School provide transport, staff and resources to teach PE and Games lessons every Monday afternoon to a choosed year group from Harvey Road. These activities include team building activities, orienteering, rugby, football, cross country, athletics and hockey.
YHS have the staff, resources and expertise to help assist in the teaching of these areas of the PE National curriculum.
The local school children will gain the knowledge, experience and support to aid their progress in these lessons.
The Primary school staff will gain confidence and ideas to teach these areas individually in the future.
Harvey Roads Head Teacher approached YHS to aid, assist and support the teaching and learning experience of their staff and pupils.
The partnership has been running for two years.
