Intent

PE develops a child’s knowledge, skill and understanding, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. A varied curriculum is in place to support this, with activities including: dance, athletics, gymnastics, games, swimming and water safety and outdoor adventure activities.

Physical education promotes an understanding in children of their bodies in action. It involves thinking, selecting and applying skills and promotes positive attitudes towards a healthy lifestyle. This a promise that we make to all children at Bader. We aim to enable children to make informed choices about physical activities throughout their lives.

Through the teaching of PE Bader Primary School intends to:

Implementation

Teaching of PE in the Foundation Stage:

Pupils within EYFS undertake daily physical exercise within a specialised external area, including a trim trail and climbing wall. They also have use of the fully equipped sports and school hall for structured activities at least once a week.  Cross curricular links enable PE activities to take place during literacy and maths.

Teaching PE in Key Stage 1 and 2:

All pupils from Year 1 to 6 have at least 1 hours’ worth of planned physical exercise each week. PE is taught by Mr Butters, a full time sports coach.

PE is further supplemented in Key Stage 1 and 2 by the use of the Golden Mile – an initiative that we have adopted to encourage pupils to walk, run, skip, hop etc around the school yard, to increase the amount of physical activity they participate in each day in addition to break and lunchtimes. All year groups start the day with a ‘Wake and Shake’ session to prepare them for learning.  

Pupils from Year 3 to 6 also have the opportunity for physical activity during morning and lunchtime breaks on the school yards, stocked with resources. Staff and Playground Leaders (trained pupils from Year 5) are on duty to co-ordinate a range of active playground games. Lunchtime sports clubs are also on offer to pupils. These can include: football and running. 

Pupils in KS2 attend a swimming lessons at Thornaby swimming pool, these are conducted in blocks.

Year 6 have an annual residential trip in which they undertake a series of physical and challenging activities, including: assault course; mid-ropes to high wires; climbing wall; tree climb.

During the summer term Sports Days are held for EYFS and KS1/2 covering traditional sporting activities, however the focus during these events is participation. We incorporate this into a healthy living week where we invite local sports stars in to deliver motivational talks/sessions to the children. 

As Bader Primary School is supported by the Stockton Schools partnership from EYFS to Year 6 we have the opportunity to participate in variety of Healthy Active Lifestyle festivals as well as School Games events held across the town, which introduce a more competitive element into sporting activities.

All our activities are supported by a variety of sports clubs lead by school staff and visiting professionals both at lunchtime and after-school.

PE Impact

Children are motivated to participate in a variety of sports through quality teaching that is engaging and fun. Children partake in a range of lunchtime and afterschool clubs that appeal to all. From our lessons, our children learn to take responsibility for their own health and fitness, many of whom also enjoy the success of competitive sports. Children are equipped with the necessary skills and a love for sport. They leave school happy and healthy utilising the skills and knowledge acquired through PE.

National Curriculum for PE

Key Stage 1

Pupils should develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. They should be able to engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.

Pupils should be taught to:

Key Stage 2

Pupils should 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 recognize their own success.

Pupils should be taught to:
