Sport and PE
Tattershall Primary School recognises and values the importance of Physical Education (P.E). We aim to develop a fun, high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sports and other physically-demanding activities. We do this by adhering to the aims of the national curriculum for physical education to ensure that all children:
- develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
- are physically active for sustained periods of time
- engage in competitive sports and activities
- lead healthy, active lives
It is our intention to build a curriculum that enables children to develop knowledge, skills and vocabulary in a broad range of sporting activities.
Through enrichment activities and intra-school competitions, we aim to raise the profile of PE and expose our children to sports they may never have had the opportunity to engage with. Our PE syllabus is based on the Early Years Framework and the National Curriculum with a clear progression structure from Reception to Year 6. This progression of skills has been planned to build on the skills needed to meet the end of Key Stage objectives in the National Curriculum.
The PE curriculum is taught mostly through discrete lessons and where possible teachers will enrich children’s learning through a cross-curricular approach. Each class has access to two hours of high-quality physical activity every week. These are taught by the class teacher, sometimes supported/led by JB coaching. Through the use of coaches, fun and innovative sessions are run that offer staff the chance to upskill their own practice. Within each lesson, children are given the opportunity to practise skills in a variety of ways and each lesson builds upon the previous skills, allowing them time to embed them. Different skills are recapped throughout, and across the years, each time they are being built upon; allowing children to know more and remember more. By the end of year 6 we strive for the majority of children to meet the National Curriculums standard of competently swimming 25m. We offer a wide range of sporting after-school clubs run by both teaching staff and external providers such as JB Sports Coaching and Carre’s Outreach. Carre’s Outreach are used to specifically target children identified through their fitness profiling conducted each year. A range of inter, intra and individuals’ events run throughout the school year, giving children opportunities to take part in competitive sports.
Swimming and water safety is an extremely important part of the PE curriculum at Tattershall Primary and another way of helping children to lead healthy and active lives. We are delighted that this year, 100% of KS2 children have participated in 12 weeks of swimming, which included swimming lessons and learning how to safely self-rescue.
Within our Year 6 cohort 70% of children were able to swim 25m or further.
