PE, Sport & Physical Activity

Our PE Curriculum allows children to develop their physical capabilities through practise, scaffolding, guidance and the opportunity to take part in many different sports. Through lessons, extra weekly fitness, active lunch times, intra and inter sports children are encouraged to develop competition whether this is against themselves (personal best) or against others, whilst demonstrating and developing key and core values.

With a range of clubs on offer in school, children have the opportunity to develop their love of PE and sport whilst maximising their potential. Alongside this we have links with external clubs to allow children a pathway to progress and experience further.

Sports funding has greatly enhanced the quality of our PE provision. Careful consideration is taken with spending allocation to ensure longevity and sustainability as well as high quality PE and sport for all children. The 5 key indicators are at the heart of our provision.

PE Statement of Intent

The National Curriculum programmes of study and Early Years Outcomes form the foundations of our Physical Education curriculum. Through a high-quality physical education curriculum children will be inspired to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. We provide opportunities for children to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Children compete in sport and other activities to support character building and help to them embed and demonstrate many values such as fairness and respect.

Implementation

Physical Education is led by an experienced subject expert who supports staff with the implementation of the curriculum and provides specific lesson plans to support this.

Children are given opportunities to apply their knowledge and skills through a wide range of activities. Children build on their skills and are given time to apply these in a variety of ways. By experiencing and exploring a wide range of equipment, children develop transferable skills. They are taught new skills and are given the opportunity to evaluate and improve their performance. Health and safely rules are reinforced, considered and adhered to. Children are given the opportunity to experience competition. This is provided through lessons, intra and inter sports, clubs and specifically teams with the opportunity to set and work towards personal goals.

Impact

Learners have the knowledge and skills to work like a sportsperson. They make sustained progress in Physical Education which is measured against age appropriate progression grids and expectations. By the end of each phase children are expected to know, apply and understand the knowledge, skills and processes specified in the programme of study. Learners develop the competence in a broad range of physical activities needed to live an active healthy life. Learners will be inspired and motivated to believe it is possible to excel and compete at the highest level.
