At Cubitt Town we aim to provide a PE curriculum that enables children to develop knowledge, skills and vocabulary in a broad range of sporting activities, in addition to developing their health, fitness and wellbeing. PE is taught as a basis for lifelong learning, where the pupils have access to a wide range of activities, developing a love of physical activity and the basis for healthy, active lives.
Our long term plan is broad and balanced, allowing children to access a wide variety of high quality PE and sports provision. Skills are cumulative as the children progress through the school. We begin with a focus on the fundamental movement skills (ABC's) and physical literacy, then moving onto skills and activities that can be transferred to different sports. We teach the National Curriculum, supported by the Complete PE scheme of work that ensures that skills and knowledge are built on year by year and sequenced appropriately to maximise learning for all children. Children with additional needs are provided with appropriate support to enable them to take part and gain confidence in skills, understanding and motivation.
We are passionate about the need to teach children how to co-operate and collaborate with others, and work as part of a team. Oracy is used throughout the PE lessons for problem solving and skill sharing to ensure the best possible learning.
