Our Physical Education statement of intent
At Worthinghead it is our aim to deliver 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 both individual and team based. We want to 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 and transferrable life skills such as fairness and respect. Our PE curriculum also helps to challenge our children developing their positive growth mind-set and resilience.
At Worthinghead we aim to ensure that 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
lead healthy, active lives.
National Curriculum for Physical education
At Worthinghead PE is taught as a discrete lesson by a specialist PE coach.
Each class has a one hour slot a week, either on a Tuesday or Wednesday. Each half term has a different sports focus following the programme of study for key stages 1 and 2 from the National Curriculum for England
Physical education in the early years:
Physical development is one of the three prime areas within the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). Each prime area is divided into Early Learning Goals, for physical development these are:
With movement being such an important part of development in the EYFS there is lots of opportunity for physical activity across the day. Here are some of opportunities the child have access to daily.
