How do we teach PE?
Class teachers and our specialist PE lead deliver a minimum of two lessons per week. Outdoor learning is a school driver and teachers plan additional active learning and outdoor activity for every project.
Staff draw upon a variety of excellent resources to support the curriculum planning. The balance and breadth of the curriculum is overseen by the PE lead.
A pupil profile is developed which is updated as assessments and observations occur. The profile includes progress in specific areas but also analysis of the pupils’ movement skills.
Pupils who exhibit a high level of skill and enjoy competitive activity are encouraged to participate in elite training and sign posted to activities that can support their progression.
The curriculum is initiated with the Healthy Movers programme as the core. As pupils progress they explore the Real PE programme supplemented with other resources and school dance programme.
