INTENT (staff knowing what we want our children to learn)
At Old Town Infant School and Nursery, we strive to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that enable all children to become physically confident, achieve their personal best and make informed informed decisions to lead active and healthy lives. Our aim is to provide an exciting and varied PE curriculum, which enables all children to develop knowledge, skills and vocabulary through a range of physical activities.
Building on children’s natural enthusiasm for movement, we will actively encourage them to be physically active for sustained periods. We believe that PE, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is vital and unique in its contribution to a child’s physical and emotional development and health.
IMPLEMENTATION (staff knowing how we want to deliver that learning)
We are committed to providing each child two hours of taught curriculum PE each week and 30 minutes of physical activity a day. Children will learn fundamental movement skills and will have opportunities to implement these skills during gymnastics, dance, games and athletics. They will learn about the importance of physical activity on health and well-being and develop values and transferrable life skills such as fairness and respect.
We believe in inclusive practice and all pupils have access to a board and balanced curriculum, irrespective of age, gender, cultural, ethnic or social background. We use the STEP (Space, Task, Equipment, People) framework to adapt differentiate or extend our lessons so that they are fully inclusive for all children regardless of ability. Pupils with SEND achieve the best possible outcomes and have a positive experience of PE.
IMPACT (defines what our children have achieved and measures how effective our teaching has been)
Our detailed planning enables teachers to support children to develop and improve key skills week-on-week. PE has many cross-curricular links and subject leaders’ work together to identify these links in order to embed and reinforce key aspects of learning.
We plan annual enrichment and whole-school sporting events, which we hope, along with a well-considered curriculum, will inspire a life-long love of physical activity and sport. Children are encouraged to be physically active during play and lunch times and we offer a range of after-school clubs.
