Intent, Implementation and Impact
The PE curriculum provides enjoyable and engaging opportunities for pupils to compete in sport and other activities and help to embed Learning Behaviours such as teamwork and respect. Through PE children will develop knowledge, skills and understanding in a range of physical activities, so that they can perform with increasing confidence and ability. We ensure that the children’s experience of PE is positive and motivating and that children’s attitudes to a healthy lifestyle are firmly embedded in our school.
Each child receives 2 hours of curriculum time PE on a weekly basis. This is planned and mapped out to ensure a broad and full range of skills and activities. These sessions are either delivered by class teachers or specialist coaches during PE lessons.
Pupils are taught to apply and develop a broad 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.
There are opportunities across the year for children to take part in inter and intra school competitions, as well as festivals, where children’s successes in sports are celebrated.
Children in Year 5 attend swimming lessons at the local swimming pool where they are taught to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of 25m using a range of strokes.
Our pupils are physically active and this has positive implications on their learning in the classroom. Children understand how to lead a healthy lifestyle and understand the importance of exercise. Children enjoy PE and develop a love of sport, and physical activity, that they pursue outside of school and in future life outside of primary school. All pupils understand the values and importance of fair play and being a good sportsperson.
