Physical Education

Curriculum Intent for Physical Education 

Curriculum Aims 

Across our three schools, we want children to:  

  • Provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness.  
  • Offer pupils the opportunity to compete in sports and other activities, to help build character and reinforce values such as fairness and respect. 
  • Pupils in EYFS to be given opportunities to undertake activities that provide appropriate physical challenge, both indoors and outdoors, whilst using a range of resources and equipment.  
  • In Key Stage 1, pupils are taught to master basic movements, including running, jumping, throwing and developing their agility, balance and coordination.  
  • At Key Stage 2, pupils are taught to use running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in isolation and in combination.   
  • Pupils play in competitive games, applying basic principles suitable for attacking and defending through tag rugby, football, basketball, hockey and tennis. 
  • During the winter months, pupils’ are taught to develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance through activities such as Dance and Gymnastics.  
  • Pupils are given opportunities to compare their performances with their previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best. 
  • By the end of KS2, pupils are taught to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres using a range of strokes effectively. 
How does this subject develop spirituality? 

  • Through P.E. at Kingfisher Federation, we enable spiritual development by allowing our children the freedom to move and express themselves. We build wonder in their achievements as they learn a new skill and share this with others. 

Assessment in this subject is carried out across the unit of learning. It involves questioning and observations by staff as well as children’s self-assessment. Children are given time and encouragement to celebrate successes, as well as think, respond and consider how they would improve next time.   

We consider a final assessment at the end of the unit of learning, against the intended learning outcomes. These are uploaded to our shared file to inform planning by teachers and subject leaders.   

An EYFS profile will be completed for each pupil in the final term of the year in which they reach age five.
