Physical Education (PE) and Sports

What are the aims of teaching PE?

A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils 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.

 

The National Curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities.
  • are physically active for sustained periods of time.
  • engage in competitive sports and activities.
  • lead healthy, active lives.

PE at Bramley St Peter’s

At Bramley St Peter’s, we are proud of the PE provision we offer for our children. We aim to nurture confident, resilient children who will strive for their personal best. We use a scheme for the planning and delivery of PE called ‘Complete PE’. The scheme helps class teachers and HLTA’s plan for PE (the intent), to teach PE (the implementation), and to assess progress (the impact). We also work alongside Mr Anderson from Leeds West Academy to ensure high quality PE is taught throughout school.

Our curriculum map has been designed to ensure that children experience a wide variety of activities including, dance, gymnastics, games (this is split into invasion, striking and fielding and net and wall games in KS2), athletics, outdoor and adventurous activities and swimming. We are in partnership with Skipping School who lead workshops for Year 2 and 4. We want our children to become confident movers and participate in PE enthusiastically, understanding the benefits of leading an active and healthy lifestyle.

As part of the Bramley Cluster and West Leeds School Sport Partnership we access a wide range of competitive activities (including Bramley Olympics and The Brownlee Triathlon), where children are inspired to succeed and excel in competitive sport. We work with Primary Sports UK to provide extra-curricular clubs and activities for all children, including; Fencing and Archery, Dance and Musical Theatre, Circus Skills, Football, Cricket. The PE team also lead lunchtime clubs to prepare children for upcoming competitions.

Finally, we aim to ensure that our delivery of physical education allows all children to have the skills and mindset to leave primary school with high self-esteem and the confidence to face personal and sporting challenges in all areas of life at school, at home and in the community.

 

Assessment in PE

We record pupils’ PE attainment using the inbuilt assessment tool on Complete PE. In every sequence of learning, success is celebrated physically, cognitively, socially and emotionally. The success criteria is designed to encourage ‘mastery learning' and focuses on the personal development of the whole child.
