PE

PE

We give the children a broad and balanced curriculum of physical activities including gymnastics, dance, athletics, games and swimming. We aim to make sport enjoyable and accessible to all children regardless of ability and gender. Whatever the pursuit, sport offers essential relaxation and helps to maintain fitness and vigour, self-esteem and confidence. We aim to provide two hours of curriculum PE a week.

 

We are fortunate in having a large games field and hall furnished with wall bars, gymnastics apparatus and mats.

 

We also have a daily mile track spanning the perimeter of our school field which the children use at lunchtime, during their games lessons as a warm up and also to complete their personal challenges. We run a personal challenge across the school for the children to strive to beat their personal best times to help develop their overall fitness.

 

We aim to provide five weeks of swimming for years 3, 4, 5 & 6. The children also learn about safety in the water. The expectation is that all children must be able to swim 25m by the end of KS2. Any children who do not meet this requirement will be provided with extra swimming sessions.

 

Traditional and contemporary dance forms are taught encouraging a sense of rhythm, poise and expression of feeling.

 

Games activities include tag rugby, football, unihoc and netball in the Autumn and Spring terms, with tennis, rounders and cricket being the focus alongside athletics in the Summer and latter half of the Spring terms.

 

To develop the School Games inclusive approach to PE and school sport we have updated our PE planning to include two new, inclusive sports in each year group. These are: Boccia, skipping, Tri-golf, Dodgeball, Handball and Volleyball.

 

Children in years 4 and 6 have the opportunity to attend an annual residential visit, where they take part in outdoor and adventurous activities, which are organised and supervised by qualified members of site staff. In addition, year 4 also work with tennis coach Nick Williams in the summer term to develop their tennis skills ahead of a year 4 tournament.

 

We endeavour to provide a variety of afterschool clubs. Over the last twelve months we have offered a range of clubs including: rugby, football, hockey, rounders, multi-sports, cricket, Jujitsu, athletics, netball, Change4Life.

 

As part of their PPA children in Years 5 and 6 have the chance to work with a dedicated sports coach from ActivSports to supplement our own expertise within school. While staff and children in Years 3 and 4 are working with the coach to develop confidence and skills. ActivSports also provide two clubs at lunchtime, including Change4Life and Preparation for Competitions.

 

We have also introduced the Six School Games Values, which are:

 

  • Teamwork

  • Self-Belief

  • Honesty

  • Passion

  • Respect

  • Determination

 

These underpin our sports curriculum and ensure the children develop positive attitudes to sportsmanship. We have an awards ceremony each term to recognise children who have displayed these values.
 

Assessment

The children are assessed termly in two areas of Physical Education:

  1. Speed

  2. Balance

 

The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities;
  • are physically active for sustained periods of time;
  • engage in competitive sports and activities;
  • lead healthy, active lives.

Taking Swimming Seriously

The school is delighted to say that we have signed up to ‘Take School Swimming Seriously’ by implementing the ASA’s School Swimming Charter. We have joined in partnership with the national governing body for swimming, the ASA, to help every one of our pupils become confident and capable swimmers. 

 

Swimming is an essential life-saving skill that every child has a right to learn and by launching the School Swimming Charter we want to show that we are dedicated to making our school swimming lessons the best they can be.
