Physical Education 2020-2021

Curriculum Intent 

At St Stephen Churchtown Academy, we have developed a PE curriculum which develops: 

- Children’s fitness, health and well-being.

- Teamwork and cooperation.

- Problem solving skills.

- Agility, flexibility and coordination.

- Key skill development such as throwing, catching, running and kicking.

 

To ensure curriculum quality we have addressed the following: 

- We use the Complete PE scheme of work which was developed in tandem with the Youth Sport Trust.

- Children have access to a range of sports and activities throughout the year which allow them to develop different skills.

- PE lessons are underpinned by clear, age-appropriate success criteria.

- Each year group’s PE builds and develops upon their previous learning.

- Staff are secure in delivering the curriculum and have opportunities for CPD throughout the year.

 

Please see the document links at the end of this page to learn about the full PE Curriculum.
