Physical Education (PE)
Physical Education (PE) develops pupils’ physical competence and confidence. It promotes physical skill, development and knowledge of the body and provides opportunities for children to be creative, competitive and to face challenges as individuals, in group and in teams.
It is also essential in promoting a positive attitude towards active and healthy lifestyles. Through PE pupils learn how to plan, perform and evaluate their work, enabling them to improve their quality and effectiveness. Through this process, they discover their aptitude, abilities and preferences and how to make choices about getting involved in lifelong physical activity.
Our aims in teaching PE
- To ensure children are confident, safe and enjoy physical activity
- To develop a range of physical skills, strength and stamina
- To develop an ability to select, link and apply skills, tactics and compositional ideas and perform them with control, co-ordination and fluency
- To improve observational skills and the ability to evaluate their own and others work and use this skill to improve performance
- To develop a sense of fair play and sportsmanship
- To cooperate and work successfully/collaboratively with others
- To express ideas in dance form and appreciate the aesthetic qualities of movement
- To motivate and retain a lifelong interest in PE and to recognise the importance of living and maintaining a healthy lifestyle (See link with PSHE guidelines)
The PE and Sport Premium for Primary Schools
For the academic Year September 2017 to July 2018 the school will receive double the funding budget to the last 4 years. We must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport on offer to pupils.
This means we will use the premium to:
1. To develop or add to the PE already in place in school
2. To make improvements now for future pupils
We aim to do meet the curriculum expectations with the help of the Sport Premium Funding by providing:
- A more inclusive curriculum
- A growth in traditional and alternative sports
- Improvements in our partnership work with other schools
- Creating links with other subjects that contribute to pupils’ overall achievement and their greater social, spiritual, moral and cultural skills
The 2018 PE funding report, provides detailed information on how we’re planning to spend the money this year.
