PE and Games

At Edge Hill, we pride ourselves on providing our children with a rich and varied PE curriculum. To support the delivery of the National Curriculum, we follow the Primary PE Planning scheme.

-To ensure we achieve our intended aims, we strive to:

-To ensure our children are physically competent to perform at a high level in physical activity.

-To promote a lifelong love of physical activity for all children in our school.

-To provide abundant opportunities for our children to become fit, active and healthy.

-Ensure that PE at Edge Hill is continually and consistently monitored for health/quality purposes by external bodies.

-To develop our children’s ability to participate in competitive sports.

-Develop pupils’ leadership qualities and confidence to speak in front of others.

To ensure we meet our aims we implement aspects of the taught curriculum as follows:

  • We use a sequential and progressive PE scheme: ‘Primary PE Planning’. This scheme supports our delivery of high-quality PE lessons through inclusive teaching.
  • Consistently develop staff subject knowledge and pedagogical subject knowledge across the year using reputable providers such as School Games Organisers and AfPE accredited companies.
  • Subject leaders will drive PE and keep it at the heart of the school through CPD provided during staff meetings and inset sessions.
  • We use a clear and concise assessment proforma that informs future planning using the progression of key skills documentation which underpin each scheme of work.
  • Progressive Sports provides PE intervention for target groups using children highlighted from PE assessment.
  • BACT coaches deliver a range of invasion games to all year groups.
  • Progression documents are used alongside each lesson plan to ensure children progress year on year within each domain.
  • Teach a variety of different sports across the year within the PE curriculum: football, netball, tag-rugby, hockey, rounders, cricket, athletics, dodgeball, sportshall athletics, gymnastics, dance, boccia, archery and swimming (Year 5).
  • Orienteering is taught with our Geography/Forest School provision.
  • Support the PE curriculum by creating a rich and broad extra-curricular sports programme using a range of reputable providers who provide speciailised activities e.g. dance, nerf wars and tag-rugby.
  • Target children who are less active with specific sports opportunities during extra-curricular clubs e.g. quidditch.
  • Provide our children with at least 2 hours of PE lessons in a normal school week.
  • Create opportunities for children to beat their ‘personal bests’ within a 2-minute skipping challenge.
  • Subject leaders will access the School Games platform which contains the latest PE standards for PE e.g. inclusive health check.
  • Subject leaders will apply for the School games award annually and provide any necessary evidence.
  • Offer every child in the school the opportunity to represent the school in a wide range of sports competing against other schools.

To show the impact of our P.E curriculum and delivery, we expect:

  • PE lessons will be taught in a sequence that allows children to transfer learning resulting in a deeper understanding e.g. tactical understanding in invasion games.
  • Our staff will be more confident and competent to deliver the PE curriculum.
  • Children will develop and be moved towards personalised learning goals using progression documents.
  • Targeted groups of children are provided with extra support within various areas of PE e.g. catching within striking and fielding.
  • Our children will have the confidence to try new sports and will have developed the ability to transfer their understanding of elements such as decision-making in invasion games. This will be used at the platform for them to move into KS3/4 with a love of being physically active.
  • The children will want to pursue sporting opportunities outside of school which can be aided by strong links the school already may have.
  • The children will want to increase their activity levels outside of school hours.
  • Class after-school club participation record sheets will show each child’s participation in ASC clubs. This will be used to inform the organisation of future ASC as target groups can be identified.
  • Our children will become fitter and more active. Weekly routines will be established and opportunities to be physically active will be maximised.
  • Children will develop their stamina and work against their PB each day.
  • The children will continue to work in a safe environment whereby all the standards are being maintained by the school.
  • The school will retain the School Games gold award and aim to achieve the platinum award.
  • The children will have sense of pride when representing the school.
  • Children will have an improved sense of belonging as they will be representing the club in the school kit with fellow pupils.
  • Children will develop their ability to show levels of resilience throughout each event.
  • Children will have improved levels of confidence to lead an activity/speak in front of a group.
