PE and Sport
We believe that good-quality Physical Education (PE) empowers children to enjoy taking responsibility for developing active and healthy lifestyles. We aim to deliver a balanced program that offers a variety of activities to develop our children's knowledge, skills and understanding in PE and improve their health and well-being.
Positive participation in PE enables children to build self-esteem, teamwork, and a positive attitude. We want to introduce children to the pleasure of sport to help develop active children who benefit from a healthy lifestyle.
We utilise the 'Power of PE' scheme of learning because it provides a well-planned, progressive PE curriculum from Reception to Y6. The lessons cover all areas of the Physical Education National Curriculum in a sequential order, presenting teachers with a clear progression of learning to support the delivery of PE. The Power of PE comprises all the resources and support teachers need to plan, deliver, and implement a high-quality Physical Education curriculum. The lesson plans have been created in such a way to ensure that children develop their PE knowledge, skills and understanding year-on-year.
In addition to their PE lessons, we provide all children with resources to support active break and lunch times as well as access to equipment such as a trim trail and purposefully designed outdoor area.
We will also provide extra-curricular sports clubs for the children to supplement the PE curriculum, for example dance and football. These may vary from term to term and will expand as the school grows.
