Our philosophy in PE is to give all children the physical literacy, emotional and thinking skills to achieve in success PE, sport and life.
We use the 'Create Development' PE programme as one of the methods of delivery within our school and also offer children opportunities in gymnastics, dance, outdoor adventurous activities and athletics. In years 2, 3 and 4 also children access of a term swimming at King's College.
All children have access to 2 high quality PE sessions a week. Our lessons are based around physical literacy and are delivered alongside other learning skills such as; health and fitness, cognitive, creative, social and personal skills. This enables our children to not only develop their fundamental movement ability, but allows them to make links between PE and their other learning.
In Upper Key Stage 2 children are given the opportunity to practise gameplay, rules and strategy in football, tag rugby, netball, cricket and rounders. These skills are essential to their understanding of sport and allow them to have the opportunity to participate competitively representing the school.
