Intent

 

The intent of our PE curriculum is to provide a regular and sustained journey for the physical development of skills in a broad variety of PE, School sport and physical activity. This will enable pupils to flourish individually and in group and team contexts. Through regular and sustained sessions, pupils will gain the powerful knowledge they need to understand the benefits of physical activity on their whole body and well-being. Our pupils will have the confidence to experience healthy competition and show resilience and respect for themselves and others as they grow, preparing them for their future as responsible, healthy citizens. The offer of a wide range of enrichment opportunities and signposting is integral to our curriculum, in the hope that our pupils will develop a personal interest to pursue further, outside of school and into later life.

 

Implementation

 

We teach a varied skills-based PE curriculum, linked to the Chris Quigley curriculum, which enables children to progressively develop skills through the context of games, dance and gymnastics, athletics and outdoor adventurous activities, adding in swimming at key stage 2. Our PE follows a clear progression of skills and coverage through a 2 year cycle because of our mixed-age classes, using realPE resources whose philosophy is ‘Giving EVERY child the physical literacy, emotional and thinking skills to achieve in PE, Sport and life, A unique, child-centred approach which transforms how we teach PE to engage and challenge EVERY child.’ We also use realGYM and pupils are trained in sports leadership in Year 6 using realLEADERS materials. We present PE through a mixture of teacher led, pupil led and use of sports coaches, ensuring variety through a balance of indoor and outdoor sessions. The teaching and learning process develops elements of health and fitness, creative, cognitive, social, personal and physical progressively and pupils are encouraged to take responsibility for this through reflection and evaluation. We run a whole school Daily Mile which is completed by pupils and staff each afternoon. We offer weekly clubs in alternative sports, street dance, kickboxing, multi-skills, football, netball and hockey. We participate in a wide range of competitions with other local schools throughout the year. We offer annual residential opportunities for our Year 4, 5 and 6 pupils. We also have an outdoor learning classroom and all classes visit this regularly. We select Sports Captains each academic year who work with the PE co-ordinator to work strategically at PE throughout the school, including allocating the sports funding.

 

Inclusivity

Valuing every child as a unique individual, teaching and learning will be adapted to ensure equitable provision, representing all protective characteristics

 

Social, moral, spiritual and cultural development

Within our PE curriculum we explore and make connections with a balance of spiritual, moral, social and cultural aspects in order to prepare our children for life in modern Britain and our diverse world.

It's so much fun!

There's lots of activities

I like how we do one thing and learn more about it the next week

Mini games are good on the playground to practice skills. We use games Mr Bint has taught us in lessons

I remember running round my garden in lockdown when Mr Bint sent us videos

I like the fact you don't just learn one thing at a time

We do way more sport than my other school which was bigger

Netball practice is great, we really want to practice to improve

We are definitely healthy and active at Yattendon
