Physical Education (PE)

The Intent, Implementation and Impact of our PE Curriculum.

 

Intent

PE at South Farnborough aims to develop the knowledge, skills and capabilities necessary for mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing in our children now and for their future. Physical fitness is an important part of leading a healthier lifestyle. It teaches self-discipline and that to be successful you must work hard, show resilience and have the determination to believe that anything can be achieved.

It is our intent at South Farnborough to teach children life skills that will positively impact on their future. We aim to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical activities. We want to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others, as part of a team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values.

 

Implementation

Pupils at South Farnborough participate in weekly, high quality PE and sporting activities.  Our PE programme incorporates a variety of sports to ensure all children develop the confidence, tolerance and the appreciation of their own and others’ strengths and weaknesses. We provide opportunities for all children to engage in extra-curricular activities before, during and after school, in addition to competitive sporting events. This is an inclusive approach, which endeavours to encourage not only physical development but also well-being.

Where possible, PE is linked to themed weeks and events to broaden the children’s understanding of physical activity within the world and different cultures. For example, learning Flamenco in Spanish Week.

 

Impact

By the end of their time with us, all children should have achieved the National Curriculum objectives:

  • 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.
  • Swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
  • Use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]
  • Perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.

Our curriculum aims to improve the wellbeing and fitness of all children at South Farnborough, not only through the sporting skills taught, but through the underpinning values and disciplines PE promotes. Within our lessons, children are taught about self-discipline and that to be successful, you need to take ownership and responsibility of their own health and fitness. Our impact is, therefore, to motivate children to utilise these underpinning skills in an independent and effective way in order to live happy and healthy lives.
