- To develop pupils’ physical education by delivering high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical education, physical activity, and school sport. This is carried out through four key concepts:
- Engagement: All pupils engage in regular physical activity – Chief Medical Officers guidelinesrecommend that primary school pupils undertake at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day in school.
- Raising the profile: Physical education, school sport and physical activity (PESSPA) being raised acrossthe school as a tool for whole school improvement.
- Experiences: Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
- Competitions: Increased participation in competitive sport.
In ensuring high standards of teaching and learning in PE and Sports, we implement a curriculum that is progressive across the whole school. This is learning which takes place during our daily curriculum timetable. Pupils learn skills to develop their understanding beyond physical activity. This includes gymnastics, dance, athletics, striking & fielding, sending, and receiving, outdoor & adventure, invasion, net & wall games, as well as swimming. All pupils are then given opportunities to apply these to school sports.
Opportunities for pupils are offered to promote all forms of physical education, sports, and dance activities. This includes opportunities beyond physical education and includes indoor and outdoor play, work-related activity (Teach active Maths, English & Reading, Cosmic yoga, Go Noodle, fine and gross-motor activities), outdoor and adventurous activity (PGL, adventure playground, trim trail, outdoor gym machines) active travel (Bike ability, community walks) and routine habitual activities (The Daily Mile).
We offer all pupils structured learning which takes place beyond the curriculum, in and out of our school environment. All pupils are offered extra curriculum enrichment sports clubs, community sport and activity, active links with local sports clubs and opportunities for inter and intra sporting competitions.
Our pupils are motivated to participate in a wide variety of sports and physical activity in their futures. They develop detailed knowledge and skills throughout our PE curriculum.
Pupils learn to take responsibility for their own health and fitness, and success in competitive sports. Alongside this, they gain a love for sport and this allows them to grow up to live happy, healthy lives utilising the skills and knowledge acquired through PE.
