At kelvin Grove Primary School, our PE curriculum develops high-quality physical education, that inspires all pupils to succeed. Our curriculum provides opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Pupils are taught a broad range of skills through a variety of sports and activities. Our PE offer is inclusive to all pupils and ensures every pupil makes progress. We understand the importance of participation and competition and ensure all children have opportunities to compete against other pupils from different schools. We believe these opportunities help embed key values such as fairness and respect. PE at Kelvin Grove is an integral element of the curriculum, which develops healthy life styles, a balanced diet, positive growth mind-set and the resilience to persevere. 

 

The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  • are physically active for sustained periods of time
  • engage in competitive sports and activities
  • lead healthy, active lives

PE Content

Key Stage 1

Pupils should develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. They should be able to engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.

Pupils should be taught to:

  • master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities
  • participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending
  • perform dances using simple movement patterns

Key Stage 2

Pupils should continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. They should enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They should develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.

Pupils should be taught to:

  • 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

Growing up, PE was always my favourite subject. Being active, working in a team and playing competitive sports has always been something I have valued and wanted to pursue. This passion for sports and exercise led me to completing a degree in Sports Coaching at University. I believe sports and physical activity has enabled me to find my career in teaching and opened up many opportunities along the way. This is why leading PE at Kelvin Grove is something I value highly. Being able to help create experiences and opportunities for our pupils to go on and achieve their dreams and aspirations has always been my number one priority.

It wasn’t until I started working at Kelvin Grove that I realised the passion I had for PE. I think it was more the passion to give as many children, as many opportunities within PE and sport that I could possibly achieve.  Having led the subject throughout most of my time at this school, I have enjoyed seeing that passion passed onto a lot of our children.  I have had the chance of being able to share such great times with our fabulous children through sport and help create so many opportunities and experiences with them that I feel privileged to be able to lead the PE.
I currently hold my level 5 in PE sports specialism and outside of school I enjoy regular weekly sessions at the gym, walking and kickboxing.

We provide a broad range of afterschool clubs delivered by both experienced staff members and external professional coaches. It is important we make these links within our community and wider community to help promote participation and establish high-quality pathways to competing and playing sport at the next level.
