PE Curriculum Intent
PE provides children with a breath of opportunities and experiences. Our PE curriculum is engaging, empowering, challenging and fun in order to develop each child as a learner and a lover of physical activity and sports. It is designed to motivate children to seek healthy lifestyles, a positive growth mind-set and the resilience to persevere with physical activity.
Core values are interwoven within all PE and games sessions, giving children an understanding of the importance of resilience, self-belief, determination and working as part of a team.
These core principles support all children to achieve within PE lessons but also within the wider school environment.
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.
