We believe that our PE curriculum should be one that is ambitious for all. We think that it is important that the children develop the knowledge and understanding, skills, values and attitudes that learners need in order to become lifelong lovers of being active. Our PE curriculum promotes self-challenge and assesses on learning behaviours, rather than sporting ability. This will prepare them for being successful leaders of the futures with a deep understanding of personal, social, cognitive and creative skills. This is developed through a progression of skills documents so that the children are continually building on these skills as they move through the school.
We us Real PE to teach Physical Education across Morley Primary School. We believe in giving every child the physical literacy, emotional and thinking skills to achieve in PE, Sport and life. Real PE is a unique, child-centred approach that transforms how we teach PE to include, challenge and support every child. This scheme of work develops the key abilities children need to be successful within PE and Sport and across the curriculum through six key cogs, these are: Creative, Cognitive, Health and Fitness, Personal, Physical and Social. It is fully aligned to the National Curriculum and Ofsted Requirements and focuses on the development of agility, balance and coordination, healthy competition and coopertive learning.
As we have no school hall, we hire a local sports centre for one day each week during the Spring term so that the children can have specific teaching in dance and gymnastics. Pupils in Years 3-6 have swimming lessons throughout the school year to ensure that all children meet the statutory requirement of swimming competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres by the end of Year 6.
