PE and Sport Premium
PE and Sports Vision Statement
At this school we believe that Physical Education and sport play a vital role in the physical, social, emotional and intellectual development of children. Physical education and sport are central in giving children the knowledge and understanding needed to make a positive impact on their own health and well-being. The physical education curriculum at All Hallows' CE (VA) Primary School aims to provide children with the opportunity to take part in a wide range of physical activities carried out in a safe and supportive environment where effort and hard work, as well as success, are celebrated.
National Curriculum 2014
The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:
- 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.
Key Stage 1
Pupils should develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. They should be able to engage in competitive (both against self and others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.
Pupils should be taught to:
- Master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities
- Participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending
- Perform dances using simple movement patterns.
Key stage 2
Pupils should continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. They should enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They should develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.
Pupils should be taught to:
- Use running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination
- Play competitive games, modified where appropriate [for example, badminton,
basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders and tennis], and apply basic
principles suitable for attacking and defending
- Develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance [for example, through
athletics and gymnastics
- Perform dances using a range of movement patterns
- Take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a
- Compare their performances with previous ones and demonstrate improvement to
achieve their personal best.
Swimming and water safety
All schools must provide swimming instruction either in key stage 1 or key stage 2.
In particular, pupils should be taught to:
- Swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
- Use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and
- Perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
