The purpose of PE
A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
The skills we work on are:
- Agility - moving, dodging, reacting
- Balance - with and without equipment
- Co-ordination - throwing, catching, kicking, timings
- Cognitive - rules, tactics, teamwork, evaluating, mentoring
- Physical - control, strength, power, speed
- Manipulation - shoot, pass, strike, dribble, field
Our intent is to provide the children with high quality physical education and school sport that will provide the children with the knowledge and skills to lead a healthy, active lifestyle and promote life-long participation within sport.
Our curriculum aims to develop all children’s skills and abilities across a range of activities and sports. The children will be given the opportunity to constantly improve their physical literacy and also develop the motivation and ability to use these skills across a wide range of activities. We want the children to experience competition and personal challenge and how to overcome and enjoy this. The children will also develop life skills such as team work and perseverance that they can then apply into other areas of school and life. We want the children to find an activity that they are confident and comfortable in so the children take part in a wide range of sports throughout their time in school.
As a school, we are provided with Sports Premium money which we use to work with experienced, qualified coaches through PE Partner. The coaches and our staff provide consistent, high quality PE lessons so the children can build upon their skills every year. This ensures our staff gain the highest quality professional development and it provides the best outcomes for our pupils. These skills are taught through a broad range of sports e.g. dance, gymnastics and swimming and a range of games activities such as dodgeball and football, which also help the children to be involved in competitive situations. The sessions we provide ensure the children are active for 90% of each session. We regularly assess the children and use interventions to target specific groups of children who may need extra support to develop particular skills.
We are part of a cluster of schools and regularly take part in different tournaments for pupils of different age and enter many sports competitions throughout the yearly calendar such as athletics, swimming, football and netball. We are often very successful at these competitions and the children always enjoy participating. Recent success has been from our U11 football team winning the Morley League and our Indoor Athletics Team reaching the Leeds finals for a number of years.
