P.E. Mission Statement and Aims
In PE we intend that our curriculum will allow the staff and pupils to:
B Challenge themselves and push their comfort zones in all physical activities. Try new sports and go beyond the boundaries of what they believe they are capable of.
L Develop the skills, knowledge and habits needed to live a fulfilling, healthy life, makeing the most of their physical gifts - “No one has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which the body is capable." Plato
U Know that anyone can participate and achieve at sport no matter their race, gender, religion or disability. Everyone can and should be able to access all P.E. lessons at a level appropriate to them.
E Understand what is possible (what excellent looks like) and show them how to achieve it.
S Know the benefits that physical health has for mental and spiritual well-being.
- The basic movement patterns and to know how and why they are applied to different sports.
- The key skills and tactics that apply to specific sports.
- The importance of leading a healthy life and know the lifestyle choices that impact upon health.
- That competition is a key aspect of sport and know how to compete fairly, showing good sportsmanship.
- The basic swimming strokes, the key elements of water safety and self-rescue.
- To know how to be safe while participating in all sports including water sports.
Y Enjoy sport and physical activities for the fun they provide.
In the P.E. curriculum pupils will cover a variety of units that allow them to experience a broad range of different sports and physical activities that allow them the chance to explore what their physical capabilities are and what they can achieve both individually and being part of a team.
Low stakes assessment throughout each unit will demonstrate the knowledge and skills acquired by the pupils, progressive vocabulary will be taught and revisited in units ensuring the pupils develop a bank of words and terminology to describe their physical activities.
