Physical Education

 

The Government recommends that children are provided with at least two hours of high quality P.E. each week. P.E is a National Curriculum Foundation subject which is compulsory for every child throughout their school life, up to the age of 16.  Our P.E curriculum aims to meet the varying needs of all pupils within the School and offers a minimum of two hours of high quality P.E to every child.

 

As well as P.E, the six values of passion, self - belief, respect, determination, honesty and teamwork are taught and promoted through lessons, clubs, competitive and non- competitive opportunities.

 

Within the games curriculum we work at introducing new skills, enabling the children to develop and master these at their own pace and level.  At Key stage One, we focus on developing ‘Physical literacy skills’. As children progress, we endeavour to encourage creativity in designing their own games, and also give the children the opportunity to employ these new skills within small - sided games.

 

At Key stage Two, children are able to build upon their skills and techniques, and have the opportunity to represent the school in competitive and non-competitive sporting events. Our most able children have the opportunity to compete against children from other schools and at county level. We ensure that all our children can access PE, by differentiating appropriately and using a variety of equipment and environments to suit their needs.

 

We aim to increase body awareness using dance and gymnastics, and encourage self - expression, creativity and imagination through movement patterns to music, from varying cultures and musical genres.

 

One of the core values of our P.E curriculum is to develop the character of all children by fostering the use of initiative, self - analysis and a reflective attitude to their personal performances and progress. We utilise technology, such as i-pads, to inform our judgements. We also promote the skills of leadership, with our oldest children.

 

We seek to make links with local sports clubs and promote parental engagement.

 

We value the contributions of all our children and reward them appropriately.

 

Our children leave Polruan Primary School, with the necessary skills to lead active, healthy lifestyles.
