Physical Education (PE)

Intent

At Warton Nethersole’s, we aim to develop a love of sport and physical activity in all children and inspire them to become lifelong active people when they leave KS2. We want all children to develop and improve the fundamental skills needed to access all physical activity such as invasion games, gymnastics or dance. Children are taught to understand the importance of healthy competition against either themselves (personal best) or other children, the importance of an active and healthy lifestyle and the role that physical activity plays in achieving this, how to swim, basic survival skills in water and life skills such as team work, independence and resilience.

Implementation

At Warton Nethersole’s, we follow the The PE Hub scheme of work. The PE Hub scheme provides lessons to improve skill development, cooperation, self-reflection as well as developing a lifelong love of physical activity and sport. We teach children motor competence, rules, strategies and tactics, and healthy participation through a range of sports, games and activities.

Children are given the opportunities to apply progressive skills in engaging and fun activities. As a school we are committed to develop every child’s physical and social development that will support them in their future. Through PE, children develop many non-physical skills such as creativity, resilience, perseverance, communication and confidence that can be applied.

The teaching and implementation of the Physical Education Curriculum at Warton Nethersole’s is taught by class teachers. Through The PE Hub’s lesson structure and differentiated activities, every child has opportunities to take part and be successful where effort, participation and development is supported. We teach the National Curriculum via The PE Hub’s progression of skills. This ensures that skills and knowledge are built on year by year and sequenced appropriately to maximise learning for all children. Children in KS2 go swimming as part of their PE curriculum.

As a school we subscribe to the North Warwickshire Primary Schools Sports Association which gives a wide range of opportunities for our pupils to participate in competitive sports. Our ambition is that by the end of KS2 every pupil in school has represented our school in at least one sporting competition or event.

Impact

Children leave school having a love of sport and physical activity both in and out of school, with this continuing into later life. Children will have worked on their own aspirations in relation to PE and this will be carried on after leaving KS2, with children continuing to participate for enjoyment or competitively. All children should be able to discuss the importance of a healthy lifestyle and how this is achieved as well as developed skills that underpin life such as teamwork, sportsmanship, self-motivation, resilience and independence.
