At Charlbury Primary School the intent of teaching Physical Education (PE) is to give children the tools and understanding to encourage and enable lifelong participation, which can have a positive impact on their own physical health and well-being.
PE can challenge and promote self-esteem through the development of physical confidence and problem solving. It can help children maximise their potential, developing a range of life and learning skills, to be able to cope with both success and failure in competitive, individual and team based physical activities.
PE is taught at Charlbury Primary School by a combination of teachers and TAs, in a supportive environment where effort as well as success is recognised.
Moving and handling - children show good control and co-ordination in large and small movements. They move confidently in a range of ways, safely negotiating space. They handle equipment and tools effectively. This will be provided by a combination of gross and fine motor control activities, teacher and child lead. They will use a range of equipment, in outdoor and internal areas.
Health and self-care - children will be given the appropriate opportunities to discuss the importance for good health of physical exercise, and a healthy diet, and talk about ways to keep healthy and safe.
KEY STAGE 1 AND 2
The key knowledge and skills of each topic are mapped across each year group, using RealPE. This ensures that children develop their knowledge of games, dance, gymnastics and athletics progressively. The skills in these areas are also therefore developed systematically, using the RealPE framework for each year group building on previous learning and preparing for subsequent years. Knowledge and skills are informed and linked to enable achievement of key stage end points, as informed by the National Curriculum.
We teach lessons so that all children have equal opportunities to;
- develop fundamental movement skills. With a focus on agility, balance, coordination and fitness.
- to provide a range of sports experiences during which they develop their skills and learning through competitive, team and individual sports.
- enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other.
- develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.
- To have the opportunity to participate in competitions/tournaments with our Chipping Norton Partnership Schools and WOSSP.
- Through our curriculum and wider school sports opportunities we aim to developing a range of fundamental movement skills alongside broader abilities, with personal, social and emotional development particularly important. These include, confidence, self-esteem, determination, resilience, communication skills and the ability to work with and learn from others. They should have determination to want to succeed and challenge themselves and take responsibility for their own health and fitness. Our aim is also to develop communication, teamwork and leadership skills, in which they have the confidence to transfer to other situations.
Our impact is therefore to ensure that every child feels valued, included, challenged and supported in their learning. That they have the confidence to use the underpinning skills in an independent and effective way to live happy and healthy lives.
