We want children to develop a lifelong passion for sport and therefore provide opportunities for children to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities for a sustained period of time, all while leading an active healthy lifestyle.
During their time in school, all pupils will access a wide variety of sporting opportunities, through a variety of different contexts. We want all pupils to understand the significance of physical activity through a broad and balanced curriculum, which enables them to learn new skills and develop their knowledge during their time at Sneinton. We intend for the PE curriculum at Sneinton to develop pupils who are passionate and engaged in physical activity and supports them in making healthy lifestyle choices.
The PE curriculum at Sneinton has been developed based on the National Curriculum, ensuring a deep understanding of PESSPA. This has been structured into a progression map that ensures progression and coverage, allowing students and children to build on previous knowledge and connect to other learning.
In PE we encourage all pupils to achieve their personal best by using the six learning tree skills, (creating, wondering, trying, concentrating, remembering and checking). These skills allow for children to develop their learning through a range of different means. For example, the learning tree branch of ‘trying’ can be exercised through children trying a new extra-curricular sporting club, taking part in a competitive sport, or trying to be a leader of an activity during a PE lesson.
