At Highfield Farm Primary school, we provide a broad and balanced P.E curriculum, planned with continuity and progression. This requires full, active pupil participation within a framework of successful and varied learning experiences as outlined in the 2014 P.E National Curriculum.
P.E is a foundation subject in the National Curriculum. It is a statutory requirement that the pupils have 2 hours of P.E teaching a week. This policy outlines the purpose, nature and management of the P.E taught in our school. The implementation of this policy is the responsibility of all teaching staff. The school policy for P.E reflects the consensus of opinion of the whole teaching staff and has the full agreement of the Governing Body.
In P.E, as in any other curriculum area, all pupils regardless of race, gender, creed or ability should have equal opportunities and any materials and ideas used should reflect this approach.
We aim to:
- Develop pupils socially, physically and intellectually through individual and group exploration.
- Develop the acceptance of the roles and responsibilities of team membership.
- Ensure they understand, follow and accept the rules of a game.
- Encourage positive attitudes including ‘fair play’ and ‘good sportsmanship’ whilst also teaching pupils how to be competitive.
- Ensure pupils have the opportunity to train for internal and external sporting events. Entitlement
