Our PE Curriculum
As a school, we promise that all of our children will experience a wide variety of sports and physical activity, engage in competition and understand the importance of health and wellbeing by the time they leave us.
Over the school year, our children will access a range of different sports. Our long term plan gives the children the opportunity to develop their PE skills whilst experiencing many different types of activity.
Through PE, we aim to develop an understanding of the importance of a healthy, active lifestyle. This is accomplished through development of physical skills alongside social skills e.g. resilience, teamwork, communication.
Our children participate in an afternoon of PE each week led by their class teacher. Each lesson contains a skill focus which is later applied to appropriate competitive games. The expectation for all of our PE lessons is for teachers to maximise the time and opportunities for the children to be active.
The structure of the long term plan is devised so that mastery of fundamental movement skills and national curriculum skills is achieved throughout a child’s school career.
A rolling program of staff CPD has been running for the past 5 years led by outstanding PE practitioners. This consists of termly sessions focussing on subject knowledge and pedagogical approaches to be used during the lessons.
By the time our children leave us, we hope to engender a love of exercise and activity and the knowledge of how to maintain this throughout their lives. Most children leave us having mastered the basic skills in PE and a confidence to further engage in the subject when they go to high school.
