Physical education is vitally important to children’s health and well-being. Our aim is for pupils to feel confident with movement and experience a variety of sports. We aim for pupils to understand the importance of a humble and positive sporting attitude. We use the Real PE scheme to ensure that essential skills are taught through ambitious, sequenced lessons. We ensure that pupils are educated in the benefits of physical actitvity to promote exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle choice.
At Chater Junior School, our vision for P.E. and School Sport is that every child can experience a variety of sports and physical activities that inspire and motivate them so that physical activity is enjoyed and embedded in their healthy lifestyle into adulthood. Every child should be given the opportunity to develop their skills and learn how skills can be transferred across a range of different sports. Through participation, our children can build and learn more about the values of respect, responsibility and encouraging others. We recognise the benefit that P.E. and School Sport has on the health and well-being of our children.
Before teaching the PE programme, teachers will:
- - Assess the children using a baseline test to gage what their prior skills and knowledge are so that teachers can plan lessons effectively to support all learners in their class.
- - Attend staff training to ensure programme is delivered correctly and effectively to enhance the children’s learning experience.
- - Use the online learning platform to ensure full understanding of what skills are expected to be taught and how they should be demonstrated to the children.
During each unit teachers will:
- - Use the PE scheme to structure their PE lessons to ensure a progression of skills is evident throughout.
- - Monitor and assess the children’s abilities and adapt the activities where necessary to cater for all children’s needs in the class.
- - Assess the children’s progress against the success criteria to ensure children are being stretched and challenged.
At the end of the unit, teachers will:
- - Assess the children to measure and celebrate the progress made and to help inform teachers of their next teaching and learning for the children.
- - Assess the children’s understanding and knowledge of the skills practised within each unit.
