We follow the National Curriculum and participate in the York School Sports Network.
We follow our school’s progression document; ensuring learning builds year by year.
We use quality equipment and coaches to stimulate children’s learning.
We emphasise the importance of keeping active and healthy and the reasons for doing so, be that in focused sport or as part of our daily routines.
Class teachers work closely alongside skilled sports coaches to deliver a high-quality sports provision. Swimming lessons are also provided for KS2 by qualified swimming teachers to support children in being able to competently, confidently and proficiently swim a distance of at least 25 metres. After school sports clubs are also offered to pupils to enhance the sports provision on offer and provide children with an opportunity to further develop their skills.
A carefully planned whole school PE curriculum, supported by schemes of work from Primary P.E planning.
Pupils from Year 1 to Year 6 are taught PE twice a week. Early Years children have at least one session a week and access to their outdoor area daily.
There are a range of engaging extra curricular clubs that enhance our P.E. curriculum. This is both external and internal.
At break times, we build on core physical skills and encourage children to stay active during their break. Children have a wide range of equipment and apparatus to use.
Each year group has an annual sports day where the children compete in a variety of individual and team events.
We aim to host intra competitions with Year groups and phases. We also attend inter competitions against other schools. We like to offer all of our children the chance to compete.
Children participate in workshops covering a variety of sports throughout the year. For example football, tennis and cricket, and rugby, again providing the children with an opportunity to develop, improve their fitness and to try something new.
The long term plan sets out the PE units which are to be taught throughout the year and ensures that the requirements of the National Curriculum are fully met.
