PE at All Saints Catholic Primary School aims to develop the knowledge, skills and capabilities necessary for mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing in our children now and for their future. Physical fitness is an important part of leading a healthier lifestyle. It teaches self-discipline and that to be successful you must work hard, show resilience and have the determination to believe that anything can be achieved.
It is our intent to teach children life skills that will positively impact on their future. We aim to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical activities. We want to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others, as part of a team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values.
· To provide a range of sporting opportunities and physical activities for all children to participate, develop and compete.
· To provide 2 hours of curriculum PE per week, plus a further 30 active minutes per day (non PE days – through daily mile, active lessons, active breaks)
· To develop good sportspeople with values within our PE lessons and physical activity in school: determination, passion, teamwork, respect, honesty and self-belief.
· To develop children who value healthy, active lifestyles and will continue this into later life.
Pupils at All Saints 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 well-being.
During their time at All Saints, children in our school will experience and be encouraged to participate in a high quality P.E. curriculum. They will do this by developing skills in a variety of sports: dance, gymnastics, OAA. athletics and games. This will prepare and enable the children to participate in a wide range of sporting events and competitions throughout their school life and beyond. Involvement in such activities will embed the children with values of respect and fair play. Alongside the teaching of P.E, opportunities will be maximised to educate the children about the importance of looking after their bodies by ensuring that they have a healthy mind-set and diet; as well as exercising regularly. Over each academic year the children will experience a variety of sports and will have these delivered not only by their class teacher,
but from trained P.E. specialist outside providers (judo, fencing, Wigle dance) as well as
sports staff from Golborne High School. (play leader training) Throughout the year, children from year 3 (and Reception- when able) will attend swimming sessions.
Our curriculum aims to improve the wellbeing and fitness of all children at All Saints, not only through the sporting skills taught, but through the underpinning values and disciplines PE promotes. Within our lessons, children are taught about self-discipline and that to be successful you need to take ownership and responsibility of their own health and fitness. Our impact is therefore to motivate children to utilise these underpinning skills in an independent and effective way in order to live happy and healthy lives.
· Majority of children in each year group are working at ARE or above.
· Teachers assess the children in each session and identify who is working where. This information is inputted into the database format on complete PE after each unit taught. From this, the subject leader can monitor data.
· Medium term plans will show coverage of skills taught for each year group.
· Meeting the national curriculum document will also show coverage of skills taught across year groups per Complete PE topic.
