PE

Intent

The intent of our PE curriculum at West Ewell Primary is to provide all children with high quality PE and sport provision. This will be achieved through children developing competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities to develop their technique in a variety of sports. Physical Education is timetabled for 2 hours a week for all year groups, resulting in children being physically active for sustained periods of time. This will embed the importance and lifelong benefits of being physically active on both physical and mental health for all. Through the design of the curriculum, children will be able to build basic physical fundamental technique and skills in the Early Years Foundation Stage through to KS1. As our children progress through KS2, they will expand and develop their technique in readiness for KS3. Our curriculum design promotes various access routes for children to engage in competitive sport, at a level which is appropriate for the individual. Through our clear intent for PE this will raise the status of Physical Education within school and promote its lifelong benefits for the children at West Ewell.

Implementation 

Every year group at West Ewell is allocated two PE sessions per week and as a result we offer two hours of PE to be completed in a week in line with national guidelines. 
We teach lessons so that children:  

  • Have a positive and successful experience in sport 
  • Have the opportunity to participate in creative and innovative PE lessons at their own level of development through our structured progression of skill development 
  • Secure and build on a range of skills 
  • Develop good sporting attitudes 
  • Understand and adhere to basic rules 
  • Experience positive competition 
  • Learn in a safe environment 
  • Have a foundation for lifelong physical activity, leaving primary school as physically active. 

Impact

PE is taught as a basis for lifelong learning, where the children have access to a wide range of activities and sports in the belief that this will lead to children leading a physically active life. A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all children to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. At West Ewell, we provide opportunities for children 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 sporting values such as fairness and respect.
