Our Physical Education Curriculum
We follow the National Curriculum for PE and this is implemented through three key pillars:
- Skills, strategies and tactics (Head)
- Healthy Participation (Heart)
- Motor Competence (Hands)
In KS1, we focus on securing fundamental skills so that these are progressive and can then be built on and developed further as children move through KS2.
We give the children in our care the opportunity to experience a range of sporting and PE experiences such as:
- whole school skipping days, cross country festival, Schools’ Common Wealth Games, swimming gala
- inclusive sports days which include team activities as well as races where all can access and achieve
- the use of the local stadium and running track to provide high quality provision and exposure to sporting activities such as tri-golf and new age curling
- Woodland school outdoor activity
We aim for our PE curriculum to inspire all children to find a sport or physical activity that they enjoy – for them to recognise that they can develop their skills and knowledge over time and improve their personal best.
The impact of our PE curriculum is assessed against the three pillars and builds up a picture of the child’s progress across a unit of work and across the year. Pupil voice is also key to how children feel they have improved, what they have enjoyed and their next goals.
