Clophill St Marys CofE lower school

P.E. (Physical Education)

Intent:

We will provide at least 2 hours of a variety of both indoor and outdoor Physical Education activities to all of our children, making effective use of our inside and outside resources, both within school, our local community as well as wider opportunities.

Implementation:

Miss Grassi is our P.E. Co-ordinator.  She holds the professional qualifications in Primary School P.E. Specialism and P.E. Subject Leadership. 

At St. Mary's, P.E. is taught through "Physical Development"  within the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum in Acorn and Chestnut (Nursery and Reception):

Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage

We teach the P.E. National Curriculum in Birch to Oak (Years 1 to 4):

P.E. Programmes of Study Key Stages 1 and 2

The following table shows which P.E. topics are taught throughout the school.  Please note, we have adapted our curriculum this year due to Covid.19:

In Years 1-4, 1 hour of P.E. a week is taught by external Sports Coaches provided by SSG. Miss Grassi liaises with SSG to ensure the curriculum is appropriate and progressive. 

Miss Grassi works closely with Redborne Sports Partnership to develop our P.E. provision on an annual basis.  Through the Redborne Sports Partnership we have access to the following:

  • Training for our School Sports Leaders
  • Training for Staff
  • Bikeability sessions for Year 4
  • Access to inter-school sports competitions

We have a wide range of both indoor and outdoor P.E. equipment.

We use the Cambridgeshire Scheme of Work for P.E. in the main, but also supplement other schemes/resources to create our topics. 

We develop our P.E. provision each year through the Sports Premium. For more information about the Sports Premium, please click here.

To supplement our P.E. offer in school we also organise a range of Before and After school clubs.  Details of the clubs we offer can be found here

Impact:

All children are assessed in P.E. by their teachers, on a termly basis.  Miss Grassi then analyses the attainment and progress of the whole school in this area.  This information informs future teaching and learning in P.E.
