PE

 

“Because PE is fundamental to the wellbeing of our children, our PE curriculum is varied and daily physical activity underpins our school curriculum.”

At Studlands Rise we aim to provide high quality Physical Education which will help pupils recognise the role that sport and physical activity plays in developing long term healthy lifestyles both physically, socially, and emotionally.  We aim to develop the whole child and focus on their personal development alongside their physical attainment.  Also, through high quality PE we

ensure that pupils are active and can move in a safe, learning environment.  Above all, we make certain that PE is enjoyable and fun.

 

Intent

As a school, it is our aim to instil a love of Physical Education, Sport and Physical Activity.  We work hard to construct a unique and fully inclusive curriculum which provides our children with opportunities to be challenged personally and individually through the right physical activities; and enables them to discover their interests and talents. We aim to deliver high quality teaching and learning opportunities that enable all children to achieve their personal best. Children should understand the purpose of every task in relation to their learning and find their own ways of making their performances exceptionally good through effective questioning.

We aim for all children to be physically active for sustained periods of time and to be able to make informed decisions to lead healthy and active lives.  From EYFS to Year 4 children will be provided with the opportunity to develop and embed lifelong values and transferable skills such as fairness and respect.   All children participate in competitive sport which can be against self and/ or others and children’s learning is celebrated physically, cognitively, socially and emotionally ensuring the development of the whole child.

 

Implementation

As a school, we follow National Curriculum guidelines to ensure all aspects, knowledge and skills of PE are being taught across all year groups.  We teach a variety of physical activities including invasion games, net & wall games, striking and fielding games, gymnastics, dance, health and fitness, outdoor and adventure and swimming. Children participate in at least 2 hours of high-quality PE lessons each week, covering two different sports/ skills focuses each half term.

Teachers make use of Complete PE and adapt planning and resources to ensure lessons across years show progression and pupils are moved on with their sequence of learning when they are ready.

Children are encouraged to participate in the varied range of extra-curricular activities. We provide inclusive and enjoyable clubs which increases children’s physical activity. Clubs are offered to both KS1 and KS2 children, occasionally Foundation Stage too.

Physical activity is embedded throughout the school day using initiatives such as The Daily Mile, BBC Supermovers, Just Dance and Jump Start Jonny, and whole day initiatives such as National Fitness Day   Active travel is encouraged through Walk to School Week events and children are encouraged to stay active at break times and can access a variety of equipment to use.

All Year 4 children can become Play Leaders for the school. Training is provided by our specialist PE teacher. The Play Leaders develop into sporting role models for the younger children, assisting with and organising of physical challenges and games at break times.

Each year, eight Year 4 pupils are nominated to be part of Sport Crew. Meetings take place each half term and Sport Crew work with the PE Co-ordinator to develop our work as an active school along with helping to make decisions about whole school events such as choosing the intra-house competitions each year. Children are invited to attend competitive sporting events and festivals within the local area and beyond. This is an inclusive approach which endeavours to encourage not only physical development but also mental and social well-being.
