Physical Education (PE)

Intent (before the teaching)

Our PE curriculum aims to provide a safe and supportive environment to ensure that all children are provided with opportunities to develop physically. We intend to provide high quality lessons that will inspire children to live active lives. Our ‘GetSet4PE’ scheme works alongside our own school’s long-term plan to ensure progression throughout the school; it sets out the PE units taught across the year and thus ensures that the requirements of the National Curriculum are met to a high standard. Our PE lessons provide opportunities for children to work as part of a team while understanding fairness and equity of play.

 Implementation (subject in action)

At Wendell Park Primary, PE provides challenging and enjoyable learning through a range of activities. Children participate in high quality PE lessons twice a week covering different sports and skills each term. Teachers are able to use and adapt our scheme of learning through ‘GetSet4PE’ and our school’s long term plan to ensure progression and challenge within their year group. Following our school’s PE long term plan ensures that pupils participate in a variety of sporting activities. At school we take part in and attend a variety of competitions and events. These take part within our school games programme and include a large number of schools in the Hammersmith and Fulham borough. Children in KS2 attend swimming lessons throughout the year in line with national curriculum expectations. At our school we provide the children with a variety of opportunities to participate in extra-curricular activities that are inclusive, enjoyable and increase children’s physical activity. Clubs are offered before and after school to all children and are run to ensure there are a variety of activities that appeal to all pupils. Our whole school sports week ensures all children take part in a range of events and our sports day is a day in which families can attend to support their child.

Impact (after the teaching)

Our PE curriculum allows children to develop the fundamental skills they need and apply them to a variety of activities and sports. We aim to promote and improve the wellbeing, health and fitness of all children. All children are provided with the necessary skills and given opportunities to demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best. We ensure that the children are physically active throughout each day which ensures positive implications on their learning in the classroom. Overall our impact is evident through the way our pupils participate in PE lessons, extra-curricular clubs and competitions. As a school we motivate children to use the skills learnt to live happy and healthy lives.
