At Kingslea we aim to inspire all children to succeed and excel in a broad range of physical activities. We endeavour to help children to understand that PE and sport are an important part of a healthy, active lifestyle and to ensure they are physically active for sustained periods of time. All activities planned, develop the skills and control that they need to take part in PE and sport, including competitive sport and embed values such as fairness and respect.
Opportunities are provided for children to take part in a range of competitive, creative and challenge-type activities, both as individuals and as part of a team or group, in this school and in a wide range of inter school competitions. Finally, we aim to embed core values such as fairness and respect and a love of PE and sport which they will maintain throughout their lives. The PE curriculum is planned covering the skills and knowledge/content themes from the National Curriculum for Key Stage 1 and 2 and the EYFS for the Foundation Stage.
In the Early Years PE is taught through dance, gymnastics and multi-skills. In Key Stage 1 children build on these skills and develop and apply to small sided games. In Key Stage 2 the core skills are developed and applied in games, gymnastics and dance. Competence in swimming is covered in Year 3. There is a real sense of love for PE and sport throughout the school. There are a wide range of activities on offer for the children to experience with an opportunity to engage in new activities and develop their skills further. Proof of how much our children enjoy PE and sport is reflected in the high demand for extra-curricular clubs and the large number and wide range of inter school competitions we take part in. The PE curriculum is continually updated and developed to ensure it meets the new National Curriculum with extra opportunities for competitive sport. Children can take part in a wide range of tournaments/festivals throughout the year. The School Sports Premium has provided opportunities for PE and sport to be enhanced and developed giving opportunities for all to experience high quality PE and sport.
