Physical Education at Broadmayne

At Broadmayne we believe that Physical Education is a vital contributor to children’s physical development, health and mental well-being. A broad and balanced curriculum across both key stages provides opportunities for pupils to develop their self confidence, manage their bodies within a variety of movement situations, and acquire knowledge about how safe exercise is good for their health and mental well-being. Our PE curriculum directly supports, and helps children to understand, our school values - Be Safe, Be Kind, Be Respectful.

The school believes that a planned curriculum that provides a scheme of work based upon developing movement skills yearly, opportunities for appropriate challenge and competition, promotes fair play, has opportunities for leadership and that is inclusive will provide all children with an enjoyable and stimulating experience.

We will provide this through the selection of suitably differentiated and logically developed tasks so all children, irrespective of their innate ability, can be motivated to further develop their potential and enjoy the feeling of success.

This is underpinned by providing a safe and supportive environment at all times. 

When and where possible we provide opportunities for children to be inspired by local and national athletes that promote fairness, teamwork, perseverance  and commitment. 

We would like children to:

  • Develop fundamental movement skills such as running, jumping, throwing and catching, balance, agility and coordination to become increasingly more competent and confident.

  • Develop the ability to remember, repeat and refine actions and to perform them with increasing control, coordination and fluency. 

  • Participate in team games developing tactics for attacking and defending.

  • Participate in competitive games, modified for their age and ability.

  • Develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance.

  • Perform dances using a range of simple movement patterns.

  • Learn water safety and develop water confidence when swimming.

  • Develop a range of swimming strokes that enables them to become competent, confident and proficient swimmers.

  • Take part in outdoor and adventurous activities.

  • Develop an understanding of the effects of exercise on the body and appreciate the value of exercising safely.

  • Work independently and as part of a team, developing communications skills and responding positively towards others.

  • Develop a sense of safe practice.
