At Lyne and Longcross C of E Primary School, we believe that a high quality physical education curriculum inspires all children which is why we chose to use the Get Set 4 PE scheme. Our aim is for all children to enjoy PE and lead a healthy, active lifestyle through their time now at school and later on into adult life. Our curriculum is designed to ensure pupils are physically active for sustained periods of time as well as creating the opportunity for children to engage in competitive sports and activities within and outside the school environment. Additionally, in order for children to be able to progress onto new skills, children build on existing skills and make connections between prior learning and the new learning that takes place within each year group. Pupils will develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities. Every child should be made to feel they are capable of success and a valued member which could be when working with a partner or as part of a team. We hope that we can highlight the fundamental values and provide these children with the skills to be able to enjoy and benefit when participating in sports at a higher level.
Our curriculum covers a wide range of sports and activities whereby in KS1 fundamental movement skills are mastered and in KS2 skills learnt are built on and applied. As part of the planning process, pupils receive a motivating and creative curriculum and immerse themselves in Outdoor Adventurous Activity within other core and foundation subjects. Children participate in forest school which allows children to be curious about the environment around them and an in depth understanding about how to maintain a healthy active lifestyle and the benefits it can have.
By the end of the year, we hope that children will leave Lyne and Longcross with the knowledge and understanding of how different skills develop and how to apply these in a variety of sports/ activities. Every child in the school will make good or better progress which will be tracked using the intended learning outcomes on learning ladders. Pupils will be able to discuss their learning and enthusiastically talk about the benefits of Physical Education.
