PE CURRICULUM INTENT
At Aston-By-Sutton Primary School we recognise the importance Physical Education (PE) plays in the curriculum and are committed to providing all children with opportunities to engage fully in PE.
PE should provide opportunities for all pupils to become physically literate and confident in a way which also supports their health and fitness. Our curriculum is inclusive for all pupils to ensure children are physically active. Children should acquire not only physical skills, knowledge and understanding, but also the awareness and importance of leading healthy, active lives as well as the values of sportsmanship, fairness and respect through the sports and activities they undertake.
When children leave Aston-By-Sutton, we aim to ensure that the children’s experience of Physical Education has been positive and that representing the school has been a source of great pride. We want children to have the knowledge and motivation needed to lead a healthy, active lifestyle.
PE CURRICULUM IMPLEMENTATION
We use the aims of the National Curriculum to ensure all children;
Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
Are physically active for sustained periods of time
Engage in competitive sports and activities and lead healthy, active lives
PE at Aston-By-Sutton is taught by a combination of class teachers and qualified sports coaches. Children have equal opportunities to take part in a range of sports and physical activities within a supportive environment where effort as well as success is recognised. Children are encouraged to participate in exercise through-out the day during PE lessons, after school clubs, outdoor learning, lunch provision and special events.
Every year during National School Sports Week (held in June) the children take part in a range of activities each day, these are provided by outside professional coaches (examples have been wheelchair rugby, Olympic festival days, inflatable obstacle courses) We hold a sports afternoon annually and encourage children to compete against other school in our cluster FAVSP in many events throughout the year.
Children gain experience of a variety of fundamental skills. This has a focus on agility, balance, co-ordination and fitness. Children take part in individual skills, group skills and team games, using PE equipment appropriate for their age. During KS2 children will have a series of structured swimming sessions.
