At Spurcroft Primary School we aspire for all children to take part in Physical Education and take responsibility for their own development which boosts their self belief and confidence in working as an individual or as part of a team. A broad and balanced physical education curriculum is intended to provide for pupils’ increasing self-confidence in their ability to control their movements within a variety of situations. PE is an essential part of the curriculum that enables children to make sense of space and the impact of their own movement.
Teachers use a safe and supportive environment, which is a unique and vital contributor to a pupil’s physical development and well-being. Alongside this a wide range of equipment is available to use for a variety of different sports.
We aim for children to have the motivation and ambition to thrive to be amongst the next generation to compete at an elite level.
We have recognised the importance of Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing as well as Physical Health to our pupils and staff and have Class Sports and Well-Being Ambassadors.
PE at SCHOOL
The children take part in a range of PE activities which encompasses six areas of experience: Athletics; Dance; Games (Multi-skills); Gymnastics; Outdoor Adventurous Activities and Swimming.
At KS1 pupils develop fundamental movement skills, they become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. Pupils engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.
At KS2 pupils continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. They enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.
As part of their future life and to prepare them for the secondary curriculum, we want our children to be able to develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities, be physically active for sustained periods of time, engage in competitive sports and activities and to lead healthy, active lives.
