AIMS AND ETHOS OF PE AT LAKE VIEW

The Ethos of P.E. in the school

 

We believe in giving all pupils, irrespective of their academic or physical ability, the opportunity to discover and develop their physical potential through a balanced and developmental programme of activities. We do so in the belief that physical education in a safe, supportive and challenging environment is a vital component in the development of children’s physical and emotional health and well-being. This, we believe, includes qualities such as enjoyment, tolerance, co-operation and the development of expertise.

 

In this context, we are committed to achieving maximum participation for all children whilst recognising the need for equal opportunities on the grounds of gender and children’s specific individual needs. Within a caring and supportive environment, we believe in encouraging positive relationships between groups and individuals while providing challenge and stimulation through physical activity.

 

We believe in allowing children to apply skills, knowledge and concepts, to experiment, to be creative and imaginative and to recognise and celebrate progression and achievement within the physical medium.

 

We are further committed to recognising the importance of physical activity of children outside the curriculum. We believe that links with sporting bodies, clubs etc, and the provision of extracurricular activities organised by the school is a positive experience and that the recognition and celebration of children’s achievements outside school promote an awareness of the value of physical activity for all children.

 

In our commitment to our policy statement, we have identified the following aims to be met through teaching and curriculum organisation:

 

Our Aims

 

  • That all pupils will be given access to the full P.E. curriculum regardless of gender, race or cultural background.
  • Develop the whole child through physical activity.
  • Develop the knowledge and confidence of our staff through the sharing good practise, resources and working in partnership with schools.
  • To make best use of outside specialist expertise in coaching and instruction in a range of activities through links with local sports clubs.
  • To develop an awareness amongst staff of the demand of the National Curriculum and to share as a school the responsibility of developing the means to produce long term planning of P.E. curriculum which encompasses clear learning objectives that meet the challenge of providing progression throughout the key stage.
  • To use a simple but effective method of recording and reporting children’s progress encompassing clear assessment and video evidence.
  • To provide the means for children to realise their full potential and to develop movements, co-ordination, confidence and body awareness in a range of contexts.
  • To provide for the development of physical and creative skills and the ability to adapt and apply knowledge and skill in the performance of movement related activities.
  • To promote an appreciation of physical movement as spectators and as critics.
  • To promote an understanding of safe practice, and develop a sense of responsibility towards their own and other’s safety and well-being (applying safety principles).
  • To promote an understanding of the relationship between physical activity and good health.
  • Develop the ability to work independently, and communicate with and respond positively towards others (working alone and with others).
  • To provide the opportunity for work involving the development of personal and social skills through a range of teaching styles.

 

We aim for our P.E. lessons to include challenges for all pupils, which involve developing:

 

  • A sense of accomplishment/achievement.
  • Learning new skills and a love for learning.
  • Physical health and well-being.
  • Skills to compete as part of a team.
  • A feeling of independence.
  • Show children how to improve the quality and control of their performance.
  • Develop the children’s enjoyment of physical activity and sport through creativity and imagination.
  • An understanding of how to succeed in a range of sports and physical activities, and how to evaluate their own success.

 

We see the above as important for developing and maintaining high standards of P.E. and school sport at Lake View.

We have a range of extra curricular clubs and  encourage all children to attend at least one after school club. This gives them opportunities to develop confidence, skills and interact with children they may not necessarily interact with during the school day. All providers are DBS checked and  provide outstanding sessions. Activities are closely monitored by school staff.

KS2 have got a new trim trail in their playground to encourage more active challenge at playtime. Other classes are able to use the trail too.

 

If your child participates in any sports activities outside of school can you please send in photographs or achievements so we can publish them on our website. We love to celebrate these achievements.

IPEPlanner

 

To support the teaching of PE at Lake View, we use IPEPlanner. This was purchased using our Sports Premium Funding. It allows teachers to plan a set of lessons for the academic year that covers all curriculum objectives. Teachers have resources which are easily accessible to support their teaching. During the lessons the teachers can add photographic evidence to support assessment. At the end of the lesson, teacher's can add assessments that are accurate for each child. Since we purchased IPEPlanner, there has been an improvement in teaching. Our next area to develop is the assessment aspect of the program.

For further information about this subject, such as for example the policy, please contact the school office.

Recently, Year 3 and 4 went on a trip to Sherwood Pines where they represented Lake View admirably. The 'Jingle Jog' event was a fun run in Santa Hats and the children really enjoyed the run, whilst keeping fit at the same time! Here are a selection of photos from that day:
