PHYSICAL EDUCATION

The 2013 National Curriculum states that “A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.”

At Langney Primary school, we aim to offer (every child of all ages, abilities and interests) exciting, effective and inspiring sporting lessons and to equip children with the skills, knowledge and desire to live healthy, active lives.

Physical Education Lessons

At Langney Primary School, we are fortunate to have a Specialist Sports Coach who delivers our weekly competitive sports lessons for Key Stage 1 and 2; and enthusiastic class teachers who deliver a weekly skills-based session. Our sessions are mapped out in order to ensure children are participating in a broad range of sporting and competitive activities throughout the year, which can be seen in detail in our PE Policy.

Each competitive sport lesson follows a sequence of:

  • Warm up

  • Skill development

  • Application

  • Cool down

This ensures children learn and develop the fundamental skills of the sport they are competing in and have the opportunity to apply this into games and competitive situations every week. Alongside this, children are given regular opportunities to ‘free-play,’  particularly in new sports that they may not have explored much or at all before. This allows children to safely explore the rules, equipment and skills involved in the game in addition to a rich and effective process of high-quality skill acquisition.
