PE Curriculum Intent
At Hale Academy, our aim is to ensure all children enjoy and are engaged in Physical Education and Sport.
The intent of teaching Physical Education is to give children the tools and understanding required to make a positive impact in their own physical health and well-being.
We want all children to experience a wide variety of sports and physical skills which will enhance life-long fitness and life choices.
PE can challenge and promote self-esteem through the development of physical confidence and problem solving. It can teach children to cope with both success and failure in competitive, individual and team based physical activities and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
PE Curriculum Implementation
Each child receives 2 hours of curriculum time PE on a weekly basis which is carefully planned and mapped out to ensure a broad and full range of skills and activities. These sessions are delivered by class teachers during PE lessons.
Pupils in KS1 are given ample opportunities to secure and build upon their fundamental movement skills and extend their agility, balance and coordination. All children are given the opportunity to participate in PE at their own level of development. They engage in competitive and cooperative physical activities through games, dance and gymnastics.
In KS2, pupils continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills such as running, jumping, throwing and catching. These skills are incorporated into competitive games, performances using movement patterns and evaluations of their own and others’ work. Pupils learn to communicate and collaborate with each other and develop an understanding of how to improve in physical activities and develop good sporting attitudes.
There are many opportunities across the year for children to experience positive competition in inter and intra school competitions, as well as festivals.
In addition to PE in curriculum time, we also strive to provide opportunities for children to access extracurricular physical activity through a wide range of sporting and active clubs such as: netball, multi sports, dance, judo and football.
We also encourage active playtimes through the use of age appropriate resources and we also incorporate the Daily Mile in to our daily timetable to ensure that we are giving children at our school the best possible chance of achieving the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity each day.
