Purpose of Study

A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.

Aims

The National Curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities

  • are physically active for sustained periods of time

  • engage in competitive sports and activities

  • lead healthy, active lives.

Oakfield's Approach

Intent

We are setting out to help our pupils be ...

  • Active - to experience healthy physical competition, understand the role of a good sportsperson and be active for 60 minutes a day.

  • Enthusiastic - enjoy being active and experiencing different opportunities while raising self-esteem.

  • Resilient - have fun while being active learners, inspire others and give constructive feedback and display resilience in the face of adversity.

  • Healthy - learn the importance of a healthy lifestyle and experience and develop a range of active skills, transferable throughout life/the curriculum.

Implementation

We will do this by ensuring ...

  • All success and progress is celebrated, children engage with a range of equipment and activities, and active learning is taught, encouraged and modelled.

  • Engaging opportunities to be physically educated and active are provided to all children.

  • Opportunities are provided for learners to safely make mistakes and reflect upon these.

  • Healthy lifestyles are promoted throughout the curriculum and active skills are taught and developed progressively.

Impact

We will have made a difference when ...

  • Pupils value their role as sportspeople. They take pride in being an achieving sportsperson and recognise the importance of a healthy lifestyle.

  • Children choose the most effective method of keeping themselves active, praising their personal achievements and discovering their interests.

  • Pupils enjoy being sportspeople. They enjoy being physically active and reaching their active goals.

  • Children can make informed decisions about their physical activity and are proactive in being active.

Threshold Concepts

These are our big takeaways called ‘threshold concepts’ - an overview of what we want pupils to know. They are the same for every year group and help us to ensure we build learning on the same ideas, that way we help children to be able to remember more meaningful connections rather than remembering isolated facts.

  1. Running, jumping, throwing and catching requires developing control, stamina and coordination.

  2. Body shapes and balances can be connected by movement.

  3. Sending and striking an object requires control and accuracy.

  4. Effective team work is essential for development and success.

  5. Movement can be created as a reaction to a stimuli.

  6. Outdoor spaces and adventurous activities can be navigated independently or with a team.
