At Storrington Primary School, we aim to inspire and engage children’s interest in sporting activities through providing a wide range of opportunities at school, after school and within the wider community. We provide a high quality physical education curriculum which inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive and other physically demanding activities. We provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness.
Physical Education develops pupils’ physical competence and confidence and their ability to use these to perform in a range of activities. Physical Education provides opportunities for: pupils to be creative, competitive, and cooperative; children to face different challenges as individuals and in groups or teams; promoting positive attitudes toward healthy and active lifestyles.
Pupils learn how to think in different ways to suit a wide variety of imaginative, ambitious, collaborative and stimulating activities. They learn how to plan, perform and evaluate actions, ideas and performances to improve their aptitudes, preferences and make choices about how to get involved in lifelong physical activity.
Through careful planning and delivery, we can expect all children to be inspired to learn and reach the best of their ability. Physical Education can create a love for learning, which can be experienced through enjoyment of different physical activities. In turn, children will develop a better understanding of skills, whilst raising questions through curiosity and exploration of the curriculum.
With this in place, children will best learn if we design our curriculum so children can discover and develop:
- The joy of moving and being physically active.
- A deep sense of physical accomplishment and improving skilfulness.
- A positive sense of physical identity.
- A positive outlook to lead healthy, active lives outside of the school.
- A sense of spirit, wellbeing and personal development.
The aims for all children at Storrington Primary are to listen, observe, analyse, collaborate, communicate, persist, predict, think and self-reflect.
We share PE information and successes with parents in a half termly newsletter. This is also on display on our Sports Noticeboards. Each year parents and teachers are sent a questionnaire and children are interviewed. The feedback from these helps to generate the following year’s Action Plan. Below are key documents that outline what our curriculum is about, as well as how we assess children throughout sessions.
