Physical Education

At Adswood Primary School our vision is that children will develop a life-long love for sport and understand all of the positives that come alongside exercise and working as part of a team. At Adswood we aim to deliver a high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all children to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. We provide opportunities for children to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Throughout the school year we aim to provide children with opportunities to compete in sport and other activities to build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.

The National Curriculum states:

Key stage 1
Pupils should develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. They should be able to engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.
Pupils should be taught to:
• master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities
• participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending
• perform dances using simple movement patterns.

Key stage 2
Pupils should continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. They should enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They should develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.
Pupils should be taught to:
• use running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination
• play competitive games, modified where appropriate [for example, badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders and tennis], and apply basic principles suitable for attacking and defending
• develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance [for example, through athletics and gymnastics]
• perform dances using a range of movement patterns
• take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team
• compare their performances with previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best.

To support the delivery of Physical Education at Adswood Primary School we use a subject specific app called PE Passport which enables teachers to deliver a comprehensive range of lessons which provide active, challenging and progressive content. The app also gives teachers the ability to record evidence of children’s progress and AFL for subsequent lessons. For the children the app supports the delivery of a broad, balanced and high quality curriculum. This should lead to more children becoming genuinely physically literate with transferable skills to support their future development. The emphasis on intra school competition in the PE Passport will also enable children to apply those skills they have been taught and experience those very important skills of winning and losing; alongside developing a sporting attitude. PE Passport also provides the school access to evidence of teaching and learning across the whole school. Not only that but they can use the assessment results to plan how to spend next year’s budget by addressing any areas of weakness through CPD or resources. Valuable time can be saved accessing reports on numbers participating in extra-curricular and on the school’s competitive results.

Adswood also buy in to the ‘Stockport SHAPES Alliance’ which gives the school access to support from external professionals that can work alongside the PE lead in ensuring positive Physical Education lessons. The ‘Stockport SHAPES Alliance’ also gives children direct access to local competitions which teach and give the experience of the very important skills of winning and losing; alongside developing a positive sporting attitude.

Adswood also provide expert coaches that support in the delivery of PE and after school sporting clubs. This year, Ben , Fiona and Adam have delivered outstanding experiences for the children which have seen excellent progress in the specific sports/activities. Extra-curricular sporting activities are a focus with at least 2 clubs being available every half term that are free for children to attend.
