At Holy Trinity Primary School, we recognise the importance of PE and the role it has to play in promoting a long, healthy lifestyle. The intent of our PE curriculum is to provide all children with high quality PE and sporting provision. It is our vision for every pupil to succeed, improve and achieve their potential as well as to lead physically active lifestyles. We want our pupils to appreciate the benefits of a healthy and physically active lifestyle. Through our teaching of PE, we will provide opportunities for pupils to develop values and transferrable life skills such as fairness, collaboration and respect as well as providing them with opportunities to take part in competitive sport.
The curriculum lead has designed a curriculum overview which the teachers follow to ensure full coverage of the National Curriculum. To support and guide the teacher’s lesson planning, they have access to the Primary PE Passport app created by the PE team at Lancashire County Council. PE is taught as a discrete subject with each class being timetabled for an indoor or outdoor slot each week. The PE subject leader monitors the resources required to deliver the curriculum on a regular basis.
At Holy Trinity Primary School, we constantly assess children’s work in PE by making formative judgements during each lesson. On completion of each lesson, the teacher uploads evidence of children who they consider to be working at the expected standard on assessment tracker. The PE subject leader then moderates this throughout the year. Summative judgements are made in relation to year group expectations on a termly basis which are then analysed by the PE subject leader.
We support our children with SEND by ensuring the development of gross motor and fine motor skills which can then be applied throughout the curriculum and utilised in writing and subjects such as computing, maths and art. We aim to personalise the P.E curriculum to enable participation by and success for all. That may include adapted, modified or alternative activities that offer an equivalent degree of challenges that enable the pupils to make progress; specific support to take part in certain activities or types of movement or carful management of their physical regime to allow for their specific medical conditions.
