PE – Our intent, aims and concepts
A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in fun competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide exciting opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
We want to enable our children to:
• Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
• Sustain physical activities for periods of time
• Engage in competitive sports and activities
• Lead healthy, active lives.
PE at Galmpton
At Galmpton, our aim is to provide a sports programme based on enjoyment, learning and performance. We encourage children to engage in a healthy lifestyle and understand the importance of physical activity. Through Physical Education the children are given many opportunities to practice and display our school gateways such as citizenship, leadership, expression, exploration and flourishing.
Our PE Curriculum aims to provide high quality PE for all children in line with National Curriculum guidelines. In Key Stage 1 pupils learn about Competitive games, Dance/Gymnastics, and Athletics. In Key Stage 2 pupils learn through Competitive games, Dance/Gymnastics, Athletics, Outdoor adventure activities and swimming.
Learning to Swim
Our children have regular swimming lessons in Years 3 to 6. We aim to develop the skills, understanding and knowledge necessary for pupils to become confident swimmers and safe around water. Swimming is great for fitness and an extremely sociable and fun leisure activity. We take this part of the curriculum very seriously as we do live near the sea.
