P.E. and Sport

P.E. and Sport - Quality of Education 2019-20

Intent
Pupils develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities:

  • All pupils are able to participate in lessons of high quality.
  • The curriculum is inclusive and adapted for our SEN pupils.
  • Planning is based on well-founded schemes of work that ensure good quality curriculum coverage.
  • There is a clear skills progression across the areas of Gymnastics, Dance, Games, Athletics and Swimming.

Pupils are physically active for sustained periods of time:

  • Pupils are active for an average of 30 minutes per day.

 Pupils engage in competitive sports and activities:

  • Pupils participate regularly in competitive sports/activities, demonstrating values such as fairness and respect.
  • Our disadvantaged pupils are able to access additional activities (SEND, cost, kit and transportation are not a barrier to participation).

 Children lead healthy, active lives:

  • Pupils have access to a broad range of additional activities via lunchtime or after-school clubs.
  • Pupils participate in physical activities that challenge them, building character and resilience.
  • Pupils are encouraged to participate in clubs outside of school.

 

Implementation

Teaching and Learning

  • Teachers have good knowledge of subject via termly training and access to additional Federation training.
  • Teachers use well founded and ambitious schemes of work (such as Bee Netball and Key Steps Gymnastics) to deliver lessons that are engaging, challenging and develop skills across the curriculum.
  • Teachers’ planning ensures opportunities for collaboration between pupils, reflection and feedback.
  • Teachers use repetition to ensure learners secure skills.
  • Assessment is an integral part of lessons with mini-plenaries being used to ensure progression within a session.
  • Resources and materials support the teaching and learning of pupils and are provided by the subject lead.

Whole School

  • Half termly Intra school competitions provide opportunities for all pupils to compete.
  • There is a broad programme of interschool competition.
  • There is a broad programme of extra-curricular sports clubs and high tariff is placed on participation.
  • There is high awareness of the importance of physical activity via assemblies, visiting coaches and celebration events.
  • A bi-annual school ‘Health and Well Being’ week promotes that importance of being active on physical and mental health.

 

Impact

Pupils

  • Are healthy and active and understand the importance that activity plays in health and well-being.
  • Enjoy P.E. and participation in extra-curricular clubs is high.
  • Enjoy sports and demonstrate characteristics such as resilience, fairness and respect and competition and participation in intra and inter school competition is high.
  • Achieve a good standard of skills across the curriculum.
  • Become lifelong learners of P.E. by joining clubs outside of school, attending events such as Park runs and continuing to participate in extra-curricular activity at their secondary schools wherever possible.
