Intent

 

Our inclusive and accessible Physical Education curriculum intends to inspire all children for a future of possibilities across both physical and academic opportunities within sport and leisure. Physical Education provides children with a wide range of experiences that help encapsulate the importance of physical and mental wellbeing, providing opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness.

At Barton Moss the PE curriculum promotes children to be resilient throughout primary school, to join local sports clubs or exercise classes for health and enjoyment, to move more from the start to the end of the day and to have an interest in PE in secondary and further education with an aim to develop a strong career in the sports and leisure industry.

Children are given every opportunity to engage in physical education, highlighting the importance of movement from EYFS through to UKS2 and incorporating knowledge and skills links across the curriculum. Bringing PE into context supports children’s understanding of the importance of the subject and all opportunities to know and remember more are incorporated. Subject links include: Science (the human body and health), History (origins of the Olympic Games and importance of strength and resilience), and Geography (locational studies of nationals and international events and competitions).

The curriculum has been designed to engage in all aspects of physical development and education. In EYFS our curriculum supports child develop across motor skills and social skills (participation and team work). As we progress through to KS1 children engage in mastering basic movement skills. Leading to KS2 where they apply and develop their performances critically with a view of improving their personal best.

Inter-House Sports Competitions take place each term so every class takes part in a competitive event which leads to individual and house winners. A wide range of after-school sports clubs are available to further stretch children’s application of skills. School Sport Competitions for all children offer a wide variety of competitions that challenge and excite pupils - from hockey to football and from gymnastics to tri-golf.

The PE curriculum at Barton Moss promotes inclusion and active participation in the development of PE for all ages. Our school Sports Council representatives provide views and ideas on lessons, plan and organise sports events and support purposeful spend of the sport budget.

Supported by Kickstart, children from Nursery to Year 6 participate in structured PE lessons with clear learning objectives that are evaluated regularly to identify strengths and development areas. Teaching staff implement weekly PE lessons and support the physical and academic knowledge and skills to ensure pupils are prepared for a future of possibilities within PE and beyond.

Key Concepts for PE at Barton Moss across all Key Stages

 

  • Children will be taught resiliency within sport and how this can be applied everyday life. 
  • Develop motor skills and the competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities.
  • Are physically active for sustained periods of time to ensure building of core strength, stamina and health of the entire body.
  • Engage in competitive sports and activities to develop enjoyment of physical activity, social development and strength of character.
  • Lead healthy, active lives and inspire family and friends to follow their lead.

 

By the end of EYFS pupils will demonstrate the following;

Pupils should begin to develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their special awareness, balance and coordination, individually and with others. They should be able to engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.

Pupils will be taught to:

  • Daily movement challenges at the start of the day to awaken the body and build readiness for learning, for example: Go Noodle, BBC’s Super Movers, Cosmic Yoga.
  • Move energetically, such as running jumping, dancing, hopping, skipping and climbing.
  • Work and play co-operatively and take turns with others.
  • Negotiate space and obstacles safely, with consideration for themselves and others.
  • Demonstrate strength, balance and coordination when playing.

 

By the end of Key Stage 1 pupils will demonstrate the following:

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 against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.

Pupils will be taught to:

  • Daily movement challenges at the start of the day to awaken the body and build readiness for learning, for example: Go Noodle, BBC’s Super Movers, Cosmic Yoga.
  • 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.

 

By the end of Key Stage 2 pupils will demonstrate the following:

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: 

  • Daily basic movement session at the start of the day to awake and build readiness for learning – daily mile, BBC’s Super Movers
  • 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 team
  • Compare their performances with previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best.

 Implementation

 

Physical Education will be delivered by both external agency, Kickstart, and Barton Moss school staff. Children will actively participate in all PE lessons twice a week: one delivered by Kickstart and one delivered by the class teacher.  The Curriculum Map is designed and evaluated on a termly basis and accessed through the PE Passport online system.  Kickstart and Teaching Staff will use and adapt the unit, lesson and skills progression plans to ensure that all objectives are clearly accessible to all children. On a daily basis, children will start the morning by recording their activity through the Living Streets Travel Tracker program and daily challenges will be used for each class, aligned to the national curriculum targets. PE will be linked to core and non-core subjects where applicable and in addition school will participate in regular competitions, in line with the School Games Program, promote extra-curricular clubs, sporting events and highlight future careers opportunities within the sector. Health and Wellbeing sessions will include PE and physical activities to support development of healthy minds.

Impact

 

  • Daily physical activity will engage children in a readiness to learn.
  • PE Passport will have a great depth of evidence that will show children can know and remember more about PE, linked directly to the intent.
  • All PE Passport evidence shows that theory and physical intent is being implemented in the order and approach as planned by the subject leader.
  • All PE Passport evidence show assessment stages throughout each term (observations, skill sessions, competitions) within the curriculum construct that show children are knowing and remembering more.
  • Data at the end of EYFS will show at least 70% of children will achieve or exceed the PE objectives
  • By the end of KS 1 (year 1/2) at least 65% of children will be age related with 10 percent achieving above.
  • By the end of Lower KS2 (year 3/4) at least 70% of children will be age related with 15 percent achieving above.
  • By the end of Upper KS2 (year 3/4) at least 75% of children will be age related with 15 percent achieving above.
  • PE Passport and pupil voice will show that staff know which children are engaged in physical education activity within or outside of school or those that show potential.
  • All children in Key Stage 1 will access at least two Level 1 school games competitions.
  • All children from Year 3 will access at least two competitions in the School Games throughout the school year.
