All children will take part in PE lessons building knowledge and skills in a broad range of sports and activities. They will develop physically and mentally to become active and resilient learners. Children will be inspired to lead a healthy and active lifestyle and develop a life long love of sport.
The children will have access to PE in accordance with the National Curriculum 2014. It is our intention that throughout their time at Broomwood, they will achieve the following required aims:
Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
Are physically active for sustained periods of time
Engage in competitive sports and activities
Lead healthy, active lives
The implementation of our PE curriculum is:
Through using Primary PE Passport a broad range of sports and activities will be planned for all pupils.
Short term and long term planning ensures that skills and knowledge are developed across units of work and year groups.
All pupils will have access to two sessions of high quality PE each week.
In PE lessons: technology is used to introduce new skills through examples of elite performance; a range of fun warm ups are used to prepare pupils for the lesson; specific skills are modelled and developed through a range of activities and pupils are given the opportunity to apply the skills in competitive games.
Through intra-school competition pupils have the opportunity to apply their skills in competition against their parallel year group class at the end of each unit of work.
Formative and summative assessments are used to monitor pupils progress and identify any gaps in their skills or knowledge.
Following the publication of 'Childhood obesity: a plan for action' by the Department of Health we ensure 30 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity is provided for all pupils. We achieve this through active lessons, activities at break times, extra-curricular clubs and a mile run at least 3 times every two weeks.
Outside providers are used to enhance the curriculum and support teachers in the delivery of PE.
Pupils have the opportunity to represent the school in a range of sports, competing in inter-school competition. Links are also made with local clubs to provide pathways into sports clubs for gifted and talented pupils.
