Curriculum Ambition: National

Our intent and ambition for our PE curriculum is designed to be in line with the National Curriculum and that pupil progress is strong. We inspire all pupils to achieve and excel in their own physical and mental wellbeing through being physically active.

Curriculum Ambition: Federation

The PE curriculum has been developed to ensure key fundamental skills are embedded in our lessons and that pupils develop a lifelong enjoyment for sport and physical activity as well as having an understanding of how to lead an active and healthy lifestyle. We aim to ensure that they are active, engaged and challenged in their learning, showing progression, as well as developing leadership qualities and coaching skills.

Our Learners and Values

PE plays a key role in our values of Responsibility, Resilience and Respect. The PE Curriculum develops resilience through children adopting a positive mind-set and believing that anything can be achieved. ‘Be the Best You Can Be’ applies to both adults and pupils whilst teachers aim to deliver high-quality and engaging lessons. Respect is shown through children giving and receiving feedback during lessons.

Our PE curriculum aims to develop a lifelong enjoyment for sport and physical activity which is the children’s responsibility to foster. Each child has the opportunity to develop leadership roles, within a variety of sports, which supports them in developing their responsibility.

Federation Pedagogy

Through delivering an engaging curriculum, children are provided with limitless learning opportunities. Pupils develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent, confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. There is clear planned progression throughout the federation, ensuring the children develop and progress their skills as they move through the school.

Our Context

Every child should have the opportunity to access an inclusive PE curriculum that meets the needs of all learners, promotes a good attitude to learning as well as knowing how to stay safe. Children have the chance to compete both personally and against others beyond the classroom. Literacy and oracy are developed through high order questioning, discussions and regular feedback.
