PE

  • Our School Vision for PE:

    Our vision at West View Primary School is to ensure all pupils leave us physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.  We believe high quality PE provides an opportunity to develop the child as a whole.  We adopt a multi-ability approach to help them to become independent learners focusing on: Thinking Me, Social Me, Healthy Me, and Physical Me.  We want our pupils to take charge of their own learning and have the self-belief to challenge themselves. 

    Early years overview

    In the Reception Class (EYFS), opportunities are provided for children to be active and to develop their co-ordination, control and movement through moving and handling activities which involve the use of a range of equipment and involve different spatial experiences.

    Key Stage 1 overview

    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 overview

    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.
