PE

Physical Education (PE)

Intent

  • The ability to acquire new knowledge and skills exceptionally well and develop an in-depth understanding of PE.
  • To enable pupils to gain a wide experience of a range of sports and create lots of opportunities for a healthy lifestyle. Keeping physically active will compliment and supplement the school’s approach to mental health and the well-being of children.
  • To ensure all children see PE as a high-profile part of the school curriculum and take part and experience a range of competitive sporting activities.
  • The willingness to practise skills in a wide range of different activities and situations.
  • The ability to remain physically active for sustained periods of time.
  • To teach children core values and life skills to apply to other areas.
  • A keen interest in PE. A willingness to participate eagerly in every lesson, highly positive attitudes and the ability to make informed choices about engaging fully in extra-curricular sport.
  • The ability to swim at least 25 metres before the end of year 6 and know how to remain safe in and around water.
  • Encourage year 6 to be sports leaders
  • To offer a wider range of sports and activities through afterschool clubs.

Impact

At Stillington School we ensure that our PE curriculum is inclusive and allows children to continue to develop the fundamental skills that they will use in a variety of sports and activities, including afterschool clubs.  Children are provided with opportunities to demonstrate improvement with the skills they have been given to achieve their personal best. Our pupils are physically active and understand the importance of exercise and how this leads to a healthy lifestyle, they are also able to talk about their mental health freely. All pupils understand the values and importance of fair play and being a good sportsperson.
