Physical Education - Intent, Implement, Impact.

Intent:

At Gainsborough Primary and Nursery School, we recognise the importance and value of PE, and the role it has in promoting long term, healthy lifestyles. Whilst fulfilling the requirements of the National Curriculum, our bespoke programme intends to provide all children with high quality PE and sports provision that will positively impact on them and their future. Physical education not only provides our children with the appropriate skills and knowledge, but it teaches them the importance of self-discipline, perseverance and resilience. We aim to provide lessons that teach children how to co-operate and collaborate with others, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values.

It is our vision for every pupil to succeed and achieve their potential; we strive to inspire our pupils through fun and engaging lessons; that are not only enjoyable, but challenging and accessible to all.

Implement:

Here at Gainsborough Primary, our PE curriculum is sequential – lessons are practical and differentiated – allowing skills to be learnt, revisited and embedded. Our curriculum is designed to provide all pupils with accessible opportunities to achieve and even exceed the objectives.

At Gainsborough, our children participate in weekly high quality PE lessons and sports provision. We employ expert external coaches - who provide outstanding provision for both our children and staff. Sustainability is a key focus for our school – and ensuring effective subject expertise and knowledge ensures PE is taught effectively.

Our curriculum programme incorporates a variety of different sports to ensure all children develop the confidence, tolerance and appreciation of both their own, and others, strengths and weaknesses. We recognise the importance of celebrating success and managing the challenges of defeat – whilst developing leadership and individual character.

We provide opportunities for all children to engage in extra-curricular activities, in addition to participating in competitive sporting events. This is an inclusive approach which endeavours to encourage not only physical development but also well-being.

Impact:

Our broad and balanced PE curriculum impacts greatly on our children’s ability to acquire the knowledge, skills and understanding needed to make appropriate choices about their physical health. They understand key concepts and skills taught and are able to transfer these into a variety of different sports and settings.

Our curriculum develops positive self-awareness in children as they become physically competent. They also demonstrate a healthy attitude towards competition, showing respect for individuals, teams, officials and coaches.
