To provide a varied, relevant and inspiring PE curriculum that equips every child with knowledge, skills and physical literacy, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. To expand access to challenging competitive opportunities and ways in which to increase activity levels, to promote a healthy lifestyle,
understanding holistic health as a balance of diet, mental health and physical health. High expectations and aspirations of themselves, the ultimate aim for them to want to continue sports beyond KS2.
“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.
