Local School Heber Primary use Alleyn’s fields for PE lessons

Partner: Heber Primary School, Lordship Lane, London
Partner type: Maintained School
Project category: Sporting Partnerships

Alleyn’s playing fields are used by Heber Primary School for a range of PE classes on a weekly basis each Thursday morning throughout the school term. The local school has only a small outside playground which is not sufficient for large-team games.

Staff members at Heber have put together a timetable of PE lessons and schedule the morning in order for all pupils from Years 3 – 6 to benefit from a regular PE class.

Aims of the project

The local school has only a small outside playground which is not a sufficiently large for team games.

Staff members at Heber have put together a timetable of PE lessons and schedule the morning in order for all pupils from Years 3 – 6 to benefit from a regular PE class. 

Background and goals

The local School have regularly used the playing field on an annual basis for their Summer Sports Day. Since September 2016 the school has had regular access to the fields in order to broaden the weekly PE activities they are able to offer.

Resources

The areas available to the school within the fields include tarmac netball courts, a shale running track and the Alleyn’s memorial garden.

Impact

Regular physical activity is an essential part of the curriculum and is necessary for the well-being of young, growing children. Staff at Heber are now able to teach a greater range of physical activities. This partnership has enabled pupils at Heber to learn new sports, take part in large-team games while fundamentally improving their physical health.
