Our subject lead for PE is Year 5/6 Teacher Mr Doyle
Physical education develops the children’s knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. These include dance, games, gymnastics, swimming and water safety, athletics 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 them to make informed choices about physical activity throughout.
We aim to:
-Develop confidence, skills and knowledge.
-Develop physical literacy
-Provide new quality sporting opportunities
-Be proud of achievements.
-Promote fair play and respect.
-Encourage children to live healthy, active lifestyles.
-Engage in competitive sports and activities.
We believe that physical education is an essential part of a child’s educational development. We aim to develop a broad, rich and engaging curriculum offering a variety of activities to enhance skills in physical education. We also strive to give as many children as possible the opportunity to compete in a variety of competitions, during school time or by representing the school at local events. Positive and inclusive participation in physical education will enable children to build, self-esteem, team work, and positive values and attitudes in P.E. and across the curriculum.

P.E. lessons are taught using the Rising Stars framework from Reception to Year 6. This covers all areas such as gymnastics, dance and health and fitness. A progression of skills has been mapped for each year group and is used to ensure that children have opportunities to improve their work and progress further. A successful reward scheme has ensured that attendance at our cluster fixtures remains high. An information board is used for the children to access fixtures, fixture results and achievements.
All children are provided with at least 2 hours of fun, exciting and active PE lessons every week from both class teachers and external specialist coaches. The PE funding has enabled us to purchase outdoor equipment meaning that children are active for a further 30 minutes per day through play times and ‘Active 30’ in KS1. Our continuing success through the Sainsbury’s School Games Awards reflects the impact of the new curriculum, increased participation in cluster tournaments and enthusiasm for sport.
