The intention of our physical education curriculum is to develop physical literacy through a holistic, knowledge-based design. We ensure that our curriculum is accessible to all and that all children have the opportunity to 'thrive and flourish' in PE and school sport. Throughout their time at Bishop Martin, children will engage with a wide range of sports in a secure enviornment allowing them to build upon the skills which they have learned previously. We intend to go beyond the National Curriculum and provide first-hand experiences for each of our pupils; these include golf and ski lessons as part of our Inspire Curriculum. Our curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities.
Our aim is to provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. These opportunities will be provided during curriculum sessions and our INSPIRE Plus offer. Children will be given the opportunity to compete in competitive sport on an inter and intra- school level. This will allow children to build character and also help to embed values such as fairness and respect, as well as our own school Christian Values.
In EYFS, our children develop their fine and gross motor skills in order to participate in non-sport specific team and individual games.
At KS1, we aim to provide children with the foundations to become adept at a wide range of sports through a broad, non-sport specific approach to PE. In KS2 we combine the knowledge and skills developed at KS1 with a sport specific approach to prepare the children for competitive events, including swimming lessons in each year group. We have strong links with many clubs in our local community that enable our children to take their skills further with specialist coaches. An important part of PE delivery at Bishop Martin, is teaching the pupils the importance of looking after their own body, and the benefits of exercise and a balanced diet.
