🥇St Teresa’s PE and School Sport provision is designed to develop our pupils’ experience and understanding of PE, physical movement, and the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
🥇We aim to prepare children for life, equipping them with the skills to embrace physical activity and sport in a safe and enjoyable way.
🥇We want all pupils to be ‘PE literate’ and be able to confidently express themselves through movement.
🥇Lessons allow pupils to work as part of a team, build resilience from mini failures, strive for personal bests (PB), and be proud and celebrate their achievements in a respectful manner.
We have identified 5 key indicators to focus our curriculum and help us measure the impact of its delivery:
- The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school.
- The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvementtowards our curriculum drivers.
- Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.
- Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.
- Increased participation in competitive sport within and beyond our community.
🥎Our long- and medium-term PE planning ensures progression of skills, knowledge and vocabulary across each key phase and year group in line with the National Curriculum.
🥎Every class studies PE at least twice per week (2 hours). 1 hour per week is taught by external specialist coaches.
🥎Our detailed teaching scheme ensures pupils develop vocabulary, skills and knowledge in PE as well as equipping staff with specialist theory, training videos, differentiation and progressive lesson plans.
Our knowledge, skills and vocabulary progression documents are available upon request.
