Physical Education

We believe in the importance of providing all children with high-quality and ambitious physical education to ensure they develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities, find enjoyment in sport and lead healthy, active lifestyles.

The key aims of our curriculum are:

  • To develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  • All children are physically active for sustained periods of time
  • To engage in competitive sports and activities
  • Children should lead healthy, active lives

Children will also have the opportunity to develop knowledge, skills and confidence in:

  • Leadership (communication, tactics, refereeing, explaining rules, coaching)
  • Evaluation (reflecting, analysing, improving, communicating)
  • Responsibility (being fit and active, leading a healthy lifestyle)

Our P.E. curriculum is progressive; it builds on prior learning and enables children to develop knowledge and skills that are transferable to other areas of the curriculum. Engaging in sport and P.E. helps our pupils to maintain both physical and mental fitness and develop their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Careful consideration is taken to ensure all pupils can access the curriculum in a whole class setting, as well as using personalised learning strategies in line with our SEN policy.

Through the P.E. curriculum, our pupils will develop their knowledge and skills through the following domains of knowledge:

  • Athletics (running, jumping, throwing, catching)
  • Dance and movement (movement, sequences, communicating ideas, rhythm, performance)
  • Gymnastics (balance, shape, travelling, sequences, flexibility, strength, control)
  • Team Games (competitive games, attacking and defending, passing, fielding, dribbling, shooting)
  • Swimming (water safety, different strokes, confidence)

We use the Get Set 4 PE scheme of work planning tool to plan and deliver sessions and ensure all domains of knowledge are addressed. This links directly with the National Curriculum.
