Welcome to our Physical Education Page
At The Grange Primary School, we recognise the importance of PE and the role it has to play in promoting long term, healthy lifestyles. The intent of our PE curriculum is to provide all children with high quality PE and sport provision. It is our vision for every pupil to succeed and achieve their potential as well as to lead physically active lifestyles. We strive to inspire our pupils through fun and engaging PE lessons that are enjoyable, challenging and accessible to all. We want our pupils to appreciate the benefits of a healthy and physically active lifestyle. Through our teaching of PE, we will provide opportunities for pupils to develop values and transferrable life skills such as fairness and respect as well as providing them with opportunities to take part in competitive sport. As set out by the National Curriculum KS2 programme of study, pupils will continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. They should enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They should develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success. To ensure that pupils develop a secure knowledge that they can build on, our PE curriculum is organised into a progression model that outlines the skills, knowledge and vocabulary to be taught in a sequentially coherent way. Invasion games, striking and fielding, dance, gymnastics, swimming, athletics as well as fitness are all mapped out to ensure that pupils build on secure prior knowledge. At The Grange Primary School we have developed a long term plan to ensure coverage of these key skills in KS2. Pupils participate in weekly high quality PE and sporting activities. Our PE programme incorporates a variety of sports to ensure all children develop the confidence, tolerance and the appreciation of their own and others’ strengths and weaknesses. We provide opportunities for all children to engage in extra-curricular activities during and after school, in addition to competitive sporting events. This is an inclusive approach which endeavours to encourage not only physical development but also emotional well-being. A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all children to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. At The Grange Primary School, we provide opportunities for children to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect. By creating a positive environment and by putting PE, sport and regular physical activity at the heart of school life, we are supporting and helping improve the physical health and emotional well-being of our children, for now and the future.
