Phyiscal Education

Intent 

At Kehelland, we will give every pupil a fair opportunity to access the components of our PE curriculum in order to reach the following objectives:

Children to leave Kehelland with a positive relationship to physical health, activity and personal wellbeing. 

Children to use physical education at Kehelland to develop their understanding of competition, including: fair play, sportsmanship, team work, passion and playing within the rules.

Children to have a sound knowledge of the basic skills needed to access specific sports.

Children to use physical education at Kehelland to develop themselves as a whole person - mentally, personally, physically and socially.

Implementation 

Intent of action - 2 hours of timetabled lessons each week for every pupil, allowing pupils to develop themselves as a whole person, build a sound knowledge of basic skills, develop the values of the school’s PE department and to build a positive relationship with physical health. 

How is it implemented - All staff have access to a bank of structured lessons (real PE). Hall space and outside space are timetabled in order to give each class an opportunity to access PE lessons. Each lesson plan is pre-created but gives the teacher flexibility to alter elements in order to give the pupils the best learning experience. Each lesson has a social, personal and technical objective, ensuring that the whole person is developed throughout. Teachers will make links to the school values where appropriate in order to enhance children’s understanding of the values associated to physical health and sport. Gaps in skills have been identified through use of the TPAT cd wheel and equipment has been purchased using the Sports Premium to help to address these gaps. The new equipment also ensures that all pupils including those with SEND can access PE lessons effectively.The school has also recently purchased a bespoke orienteering package via Cross Curricular Orienteering which will enable us to meet statutory National Curriculum requirements for KS2 PE by teaching orienteering through OAA. OAA will also be taught via forest school activities delivered by two recently qualified Tas (training funded by the Sports Premium).

How is impact measured - Although assessment is not required by the National Curriculum, we do have an opportunity for teachers to assess children throughout their journey at Kehelland using the cd wheel.This assessment will be supported and enhanced by the use of iPads during lessons to collect evidence of the children’s skill levels. Teachers have the opportunity to offer feedback via staff meetings with regards to timetabling of lessons.

Extra Curricular Activity

Intent of action - To offer maximum opportunity to children of all circumstances to enjoy clubs and initiatives outside of school hours - allowing pupils to develop themselves as a whole person, build a sound knowledge of basic skills and build a positive relationship with physical health.

How is it implemented - We have used some of the Sports Premium Budget to run sports clubs after school throughout the week. These are free to access for pupils. The sports and age groups vary each term so that more children have the option to access them. The clubs are promoted through letter distribution. We have also developed our lunch time provision to train older children to deliver games.

How is impact measured - The clubs are all run by professional sports coaches who use their own internal assessment and monitoring to ensure high quality provision. We have an open dialogue with them in order to align our expectations. Participation is monitored in order to make sure we are offering the best clubs that are being enjoyed by the children - and we have the opportunity to stop clubs that aren’t working well and replace them with di?erent age groups and sports. 

Competition

Intent of action - To give children an opportunity to develop a better sense of competition - either competing against themselves, others in a recognised environment (PE lessons for example) or against an unrecognised opponent. Increased exposure to competition will allow pupils to better develop their relationship with physical health and its ability to build traits such as humility, cooperation, passion, pride and competitiveness. 

How is it implemented - Through exposure to competitions during PE lessons (at the end of each lesson children are given an opportunity to cement their learning through a structured competition). Children can represent their school through Go Active competitions - where they come on site to compete against other schools and children. We have used some of our Sports Premium Funding to provide teaching in alternative sports and at the end of each cycle the children compete against other schools in that sport. Our Cross-Curricular Orienteering package will also children to access competition at both a local and national level via the Active Learning portal.

How is impact measured - The impact will be measured by anecdotal evidence, listening to pupil and teacher feedback about pupil’s attitudes to competition throughout the year. We will also look at the results of the tournaments we attend and look to improve our results (both scores and relationship with events) throughout the year. 

 

Impact 

Pupil Voice - We intend for pupils to have an increased understanding of the importance of PE and physical activity and feel that they have made progress in those areas. 

Competition - We intend for children to have the opportunity to go to more competitions outside of school and continue to build on their success at the Go Active festivals.

Extra Curricular Participation - We intend for as many children as possible to have the opportunity to attend the after school sports clubs.

Teacher Confidence - We intend for teacher confidence to rise in the areas that individuals have identified they need support with.
