Curriculum - Physical Education (P.E.)
Intent and Impact:
PE develops a child’s knowledge, skills and understanding,
so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a
range of physical activities. A varied curriculum is in place to support
this, with activities including: dance, athletics, gymnastics, games, swimming
and water safety and outdoor adventure activities.Physical education promotes
an understanding in children of their bodies in action. It involves thinking,
selecting and applying skills and promotes positive attitudes towards a
healthy lifestyle. Thus we enable children to make informed choices about
physical activities throughout their lives.
In all classes children have a wide range of physical ability.
Whilst recognising this fact, we provide suitable learning opportunities
for all children by matching the challenge of the task to the ability of
the child and in doing so raise pupils’ health (considering childhood obesity)
and fitness levels, improve skills and develop pupils’ resilience, teamwork
and perseverance (school values).The use of assessment, questionnaires
and surveys(pupils and staff) and by talking to children the quality of
lessons and confidence in the teaching of PE improves and as a result the
enjoyment and positive outcomes increases.
