PE at Benwick
At Benwick Primary School we believe that Physical Education (PE), experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is essential to ensure children gain optimum physical and emotional development and good health. We intend to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that not only allows children to enjoy the experience, but inspires them to succeed in physical education and in developing life skills.
We aspire to embed life-long values through the teaching of PE. We aim to develop children’s sense of commitment, endeavour, fair play and tolerance, whilst enabling them to cooperate and collaborate with others during group situations. We wish to develop children’s confidence and self-esteem, whilst encouraging a positive self-image. We want to teach children the skills necessary to keep them safe, such as being able to swim, through fostering an appreciation of safe practice.
Our curriculum aims to improve the wellbeing and fitness of all children at Benwick, not only through sporting skills taught, but through the underpinning values and disciplines PE promotes.
PE at Benwick Primary School provides challenging and enjoyable learning through a range of sporting activities including: invasion games, net and wall games, strike and field games, dance, gymnastics, swimming and outdoor and adventure.
Our long-term plan sets out the PE units which are to be taught throughout the year, ensuring the requirements of the National Curriculum are fully met. Pupils participate in two high-quality PE lessons each work, covering two sporting disciplines every half term.
Children are encouraged to participate in extra-curricular sporting activities. Lunchtime and after-school sports (delivered by Premier Sports) are available from Monday to Wednesday. In addition, extra after-school sporting clubs are delivered by teaching staff (although this is dependent on staff availability and timings).
Children are invited to attend competitive sporting events within the local area, such as football, netball and athletics.
Each year a small group of Year 6 children are invited to become Sports Ambassadors for the school. They develop into sporting role models for the younger children, assisting with lunch-time clubs and Sports day. These children receive training in order to increase their confidence and knowledge of the activities they will implement.
Children in Year 3 and 4 swim once a week for 10 weeks in the Summer term.
