PROGRAMME OF STUDY – PE/GAMES
- Inspire all pupils to succeed and excel in a broad range of competitive sports and other physically demanding activities
- Provide opportunities for children to be physically confident, leading to a healthy and active lifestyle
- Provide opportunities for sustained physical activity, in order to improve general fitness
- Develop an understanding of how to improve performance, and of how to evaluate and recognise success
- Encourage children to recognise the value of collaboration and teamwork
- Embed values of fairness and respect
Children receive two lessons of PE per week. These are timetabled as Indoor PE and Outdoor Games.
Units of work are set out in the PE/Games curriculum grid. We use the non-statutory guidance to assist us in our planning
