Here at Lickey Hills Primary School and Nursery, we strive to deliver a high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. We are passionate about ensuring our PE curriculum is broad and inclusive, allowing all children to be active and achieve success, across a wide range of sports and activities. As a school, we are committed to achieving that all children complete 30 minutes of physical activity each school day through the implementation of: The Daily Mile, active break and lunchtimes and the use of extra – curricular activities.
Our physical education and sport delivery is also centred around the premise that through our curriculum, our children develop their personal and social skills and values. We are passionate in the belief that opportunities to compete in sport and other physical activities build character and can embed our school values such as fairness, respect, determination, perseverance, empathy and cooperation.
Our overarching behind our vision in the subject is that we want our pupils to enjoy physical education and become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. We then hope that by the time our children leave our school, they are well on their way to leading active and healthy lives as they get older.
We use Get Set 4 PE to support our PE and Sports offer in school, it provides a variety of engaging lessons to be delivered by school staff and deploys a wide range of teaching strategies. The All Active Academy runs a range of sports, health, wellbeing and active lifestyle projects for the school. We promote an ‘everybody active’ attitude amongst the children and encourage them to develop a keen interest in sport and be willing to partake in sporting activities. Through our P.E. curriculum we aim to develop confidence and self-esteem in P.E. lessons and when children are representing the school/house team in sporting competitions.
All Active Academy – Included below are links to their Facebook and Twitter page where they will be releasing weekly physical activity challenges for KS1, KS2 and Secondary pupils.
Get Set 4 PE – a scheme of work used in school to help teachers to plan and teach PE effectively. These schemes of work have been written with careful consideration of the aims of the National Curriculum, to ensure that children are given a wealth of opportunities to develop their physical skills as well as developing the whole child. Each lesson has progressive activities that are designed to inspire and engage pupils, allowing them to explore and develop skills and embed knowledge.
Get Set 4 PE has enabled the school to develop a broad PE curriculum which covers all the skills children need to acquire. It enables continuity throughout the school and supports the less confident teacher of PE whilst enabling the confident teacher to use it and adapt it to their situation.
