At Mount Carmel we intend that children should master PE to such an extent that they can go on to have careers within PE and make use of PE effectively in their everyday lives. Our children will be taught PE in a way that ensures progression of skills, and follows a sequence to build on previous learning. Our children will gain experience and skills of a wide range of formal elements of PE in a way that will enhance their healthy opportunities.
We follow a broad and balanced PE curriculum that builds on previous learning and provides both support and challenge for learners. We look at pupils’ fitness levels and core
strength, especially over time as they gain skills and knowledge, observing how they perform in lessons, talking to them about what they know.
Our children enjoy and value PE and know why they are doing things, not just how. Children will understand and appreciate the value of PE in the context of their personal wellbeing and the creative and cultural industries and their many career opportunities.
Progress in PE is demonstrated through regularly reviewing and scrutinising children’s work. The PE curriculum will contribute to children’s personal development in creativity, independence, performance, judgement and self-reflection. This would be seen in them being able to talk confidently about their work, and sharing their work with others. Progress will be shown through outcomes and through the important record of the process leading to them. PE scheme ensures the progression of skills and covers all aspects of the PE curriculum. All classes will have scheduled PE lessons, two hours every week. We want to ensure that PE is embedded in our whole school curriculum and that opportunities for enhancing learning by using PE are always taken.
