At Kentmere, the PE curriculum is extensive and progressive in order to develop our children’s abilities as athletes. The importance of sports in primary school cannot be underestimated, and getting children involved in sports at a young age can make them healthier and happier too. We teach our children the specific knowledge, skills and physical literacy they need to become proficient within different sports alongside teaching them the core values of sportsmanship and behaviours associated with successful athletes. At Kentmere, we value and celebrate the importance of honesty, determination, teamwork, self-belief, passion and respect.
“Sport is given a high profile, and pupils benefit from a variety of clubs, fixtures and activities in a range of dsiciplines.”
At Kentmere, the PE curriculum is taught through a spiral approach. In every year group, children build their skills in Dance, Gymnastics, Striking and Fielding, Net/ Wall Games, Athletics and OAA in KS2. We teach 2 hours of PE every week and find as many ways throughout the day to engage children in physical exercise. We make explicit links between exercise and physical health, and build children’s knowledge of physical literacy through specific teaching points in every lesson. We link PE with personal and social skills, as well as developing children’s performance and application skills, so children understand the importance of sportsmanship.
