At Hallgate we are aiming to provide a high-quality physical education curriculum which inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. It will 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.
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.
The teaching of PE at Hallgate enables clear expectation and targets across the whole school. Pupils get to experience PE for 2 sessions a week. Teachers enable children to plan, create, practise, observe, evaluate and present their work in a range of different sports. Teachers are there to support through clear feedback in order to help improve and identify their next steps.
At Hallgate Primary School, as are aiming to:
Provide opportunities for all students to be compassionate, loyal and fair.
Instil integrity and empathy through PE, Sport and Physical Activity, unlocking a child’s full physical potential.
Ensure PE is an integral part of the curriculum.
Celebrate sporting success and involvement, booth in and out of school.
Healthy, active children achieve more.
All pupils have access to a full programme of PE as possible. (Equality Act 2010) To allow all pupils to enjoy suitable and safe participation and to demonstrate inclusion in all year groups, the class teacher will have the knowledge of the specific learning difficulty, disability, medical condition, mental health or behaviour disorder to understand how an individual’s condition could affect them during PE lessons.
Children at Hallgate Primary School wear specific clothing for PE and Outdoor Learning, for health & safety and hygiene reasons. The PE uniform is: House t-shirt, navy or black shorts, plimsolls or trainers.
We ask that PE kit is brought in to school at the start of the week and left in school all week. It needs to be taken home regularly for washing. A bag is provided for children in EYFS / KS1, which is to be kept in school. Long hair needs to be tied back and earrings and jewellery need to be removed.
