Inspiring the future,
creating for new!
This policy outlines our approach to delivering PE to reflect the aims of the school’s action plan. It sets out a framework to guide all staff. This policy compliments the 2014 National Curriculum and the EYFS framework.
Stratton Primary School aims to work co-operatively and creatively to develop and shape children’s outlook, encouraging them to lead healthy and active lives by promoting 30 minutes of physical activity a day, through high quality physical education, activity and sport. We aim to provide an inclusive curriculum for all pupils, including pupils with SEND and those from disadvantaged backgrounds. We aspire to mirror those aims set out in the 2014 National Curriculum.
“A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.”
A high quality PE curriculum is provided through strong teaching and learning opportunities.
Our school follows the programmes of study as set out in the National Curriculum which aims to ensure that all pupils:
Stratton Primary School will ensure that any barriers to learning or participation are removed by ensuring that we have an inclusive curriculum and scheme of work that allows all children to take part. Some examples of the provision that we have for children with SEND are:
a) The altering of rules and marking out of different pitches and zones to make play possible for all pupils.
b) Nets that are height adjustable.
c) Softer / larger balls for pupils who struggle with co-ordination or have slower reactions.
d) Differently sized bats and rackets to suit all needs.
e) Smaller groups with increased teacher support.
f) TA support where required.
Teachers will use the Absolute Education APP to target pupil premium, disadvantaged and children who are not active outside of school to ensure that they are given the opportunities to take part in extra-curricular clubs and out-of-school competitions.
