Physical Education

A high-quality physical education 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.

We follow guidance from the National Curriculum to ensure each child has a broad experience of physical activity throughout their primary years.  Each class has two hours of PE a week.  One session is taught by a sports coach (with the class teacher observing to enhance knowledge and understanding of high quality PE) and the other is taught by the class teacher.  Our sports coach plans their lessons but is in liaison with the PE leader and feedback is given to the class teacher after every session.  The class teacher plans their own lessons which are linked to topics and monitored by the PE leader. Assessments are carried out during and at the end of each half term and recorded.  The children peer and self-assess their learning and where possible are encouraged to create their own next steps in learning.

Sports funding (provided by the government) has helped increase the PE and sports we can offer. Pupils  are encouraged to attend extra curriculum sports clubs including: football, netball, athletics, gymnastics and streetdance. We participate in many sports  tournaments including boules and flag football.
