Physical Education       

Intent:

At Farcet C of E Primary School we aim to develop a fun, high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel individual’s abilities in competitive sports and other physically-demanding activities. We will provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Our children will have opportunities to compete in sport and other activities that build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect. PE at Farcet is an imperative element of the curriculum, which develops a need for healthy life styles, a balanced diet, positive growth mind-set and the resilience to persevere with activities that may be once have felt too difficult. We are passionate about the need to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others, as part of a team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values.

 Our curriculum is designed to ensure that all pupils:

  • Have opportunities to experience and compete in a range of different sports.

  • Receive at least 2 hours of physical exercise a week.

  • Are leading healthy and active lifestyles.

  • Develop values and transferrable life skills such as fairness and respect.

Implementation:
PE at Farcet is taught by a combination of class teachers, PE specialists 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, clubs, outdoor learning, lunch provision and special events.In collaboration with Stanground Academy, teachers plan and deliver high quality PE lessons following our progression document and long term overview. They plan:
  • using a medium term plan which outlines the knowledge all children must master during the half term.

  • challenging activities and skills where children can apply their learning.

  • a cycle of PE lessons that carefully plan for progression across a unit.

  • trips and visiting experts who will enhance the learning experience whenever possible.  

  • a means to display and celebrate the pupils’ work in their class or around school.

P.E Progression Document

Impact:

Our PE curriculum is high quality, well thought-out and is planned to demonstrate progression. If children are keeping up with the curriculum, they are deemed to be making good or better progress. In addition, we measure the impact of our curriculum through the following methods:

  • Reflection on standards achieved against the planned outcomes.

  • Analysis of spending of PE and Sport Premium;

  • Photo and video evidence of the children’s practical learning;

  • Pupil discussions about their learning which includes discussion of their thoughts, ideas, processing and evaluations of work.

  • Learning walks and reflective staff feedback (teacher voice);

  • Planning scrutinies;

  • Analysis of baseline measurement fitness tests;

  • Analysis of pupil participation in competitions and clubs

 Children are encouraged to understand the relevance of what they are learning and its relation to everyday life. They should have determination to want to succeed and challenge themselves and take responsibility of their own health and fitness. They should also have the communication, teamwork and leadership skills in which they can transfer to other situations.

 We want to motivate children to utilise these underpinning skills in an independent and effective way in order to live happy and healthy lives and undertake new life experiences now and in the future.
