PE at Kenmont
To develop competence to excel in a broad range of sports.
Pupils are physically active for sustained periods of time and have an understanding of the importance of this. Pupils engage in competitive sports and activities, and lead healthy and active lifestyles which is supported by the understanding of a healthy diet, being aware of the dangers of drugs, smoking and alcohol. Pupils are willing to engage in a variety of activities, whether they be solo, small group or team sports. Pupils have a keen interest in PE - a willingness to participate eagerly in every lesson, positive attitudes and the ability to make informed choices about engaging in extracurricular sport.
• We will provide challenging and enjoyable learning through a range of sporting activities, including: invasion games, net & wall games, strike and field games, gymnastics, dance, swimming and outdoor & adventure.
• The long term plan sets out the PE units which are to be taught throughout the year and ensures that the requirements of the National Curriculum are fully met.
• Pupils participate in two high quality PE lessons each week, covering different skills, including physical, social, cognitive and …. In addition, children are encouraged to participate in the varied range of extra-curricular activities. Lunch time sports are available each day.
• Children are invited to attend competitive sporting events within the local area. This is an inclusive approach which endeavours to encourage not only physical development but also mental well-being. These events also develop teamwork and leadership skills and are very much enjoyed by the children.
• Each year a small group of Year 6 children are invited to become Sports Leaders for the school. They develop into sporting role models for the younger children, assisting with lunch-time clubs, our annual Sports day and any other sporting activities.
• Children participate in workshops covering a variety of sports throughout the year. For example skateboarding, outdoor and adventure, circus skills and Kidzfit, again providing the children with an opportunity to develop and improve their fitness, and to try something new.
• Children in Key Stage 2 have swimming lessons.
Children leave Kenmont physically competent; all children are provided with the necessary skills and given opportunities to demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best. Our pupils are physically active, and this has a positive impact on their learning in the classroom. Children understand how to lead a healthy lifestyle and understand the importance of regular exercise.
At Kenmont, we aspire for children to enjoy PE and develop a love of sport and physical activity which becomes part of their future life outside of primary school. Children can represent the school at sporting events from local to county level. Alongside this, we share sporting achievements both in and out of school in assemblies, so that we are promoting sports and activities, as well as celebrating all levels of success. We aim for all Year 6 pupils to leave school with the skills to competently swim at least 25m and have the skills to self-rescue in the water which are key life skills
