At Worksop Priory, we intend to deliver a PE curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the development of every child's physical ability and academic achievement.
As prescribed in the National Curriculum, we intend for our programme of study to help pupils develop appropriate subject knowledge and vocabulary, which inspires them to succeed in physically demanding activities and competitive sport.
By delivering high-quality PE lessons, pupils are equipped with knowledge, skill and vocabulary which supports their health and fitness. Children are provided with opportunities to compete in sports and other activities that build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
Children learn and build new movement skills progressively in areas such as movement patterns, running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and coordination. They progress to simple tactics for attacking and defending in team games. By KS2, children are provided with opportunities to play competitive games and develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance.
Older children are also taught to swim a distance of at least 25 metres, using a range of strokes effectively. They are taught to perform a safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
In PE, we celebrate success and achievement in PE by providing children with opportunities to share their performances. For example, pupils share their learning with their peers in lessons and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best.
We enhance the children's experience of PE further by offering access to an extremely wide range of competitions, festivals and lunchtime/after-school clubs.
