PE Statement of Curriculum Intent
It is our intention to build a fun high quality curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed and enables children to develop knowledge, skills and vocabulary in a broad range of sporting activities, as well as developing values and transferrable life skills such as fairness, wellbeing and respect.
We will provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness develops a need for healthy life styles, a balanced diet, positive growth mind-set, and the resilience to persevere with activities that they may have once felt too difficult.
We are passionate about the need to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others, as part of a team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values.
five strands of PE we teach: games, dance, athletics, gymnastics and OAA.
-Where appropriate cross-curricular links are made where we encourage children to demonstrate their skills in maths and speaking and listening.
-Games, athletics and OAA are delivered by sports/outdoor specialists to provide CPD for all staff.
We teach lessons so that children: Have fun and experience success in sport, Have the opportunity to participate in P.E at their own level of development, Secure and build on a range of skills, develop good sporting attitudes, understand basic rules, experience positive competition, learn in a safe environment, have a foundation for lifelong physical activity, leaving primary school as physically active.
Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed our school values
