A beacon of hope on the hill; A small school making a big difference

Mr Simon Lucy teaches PE to the whole school every Friday.

At Dundry School we recognise the value of Physical Education. We fully adhere to the aims of the National Curriculum for Physical Education that all children:

  • Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  • Are physically active for sustained periods of time
  • Engage in competitive and inclusive sports and activities
  • Lead healthy, active lives

How we teach PE at Dundry

PE is taught as an area of learning in its own right as well as integrated where possible with other curriculum areas. It is taught discretely at a minimum of one PE session per week by an experienced and qualified PE teacher, but the norm is two discrete lessons of PE every week for every child with the class teacher teaching ‘core fundamental PE skills’ in the other.

PE yearly overview

Breadth of PE coverage throughout the year

 Key Stage 1 children will be taught to:

  • Develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance in gymnastics both in a static and travelling movement on floormats and on apparatus.
  • Master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities.
  • Participate in team games, developing simple tactics for passing, attacking and defending
  • Listen to a range of different music from a range of time periods, styles and genres and form dances using simple movement patterns both teacher led and led by the children themselves.
  • Understand the challenge of competitiveness but also the importance of fair play and good sporting behaviour.

Key Stage 2 children will be taught to:

  • Play competitive games, modified where appropriate [for example, badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, volleyball, bench ball, netball, rounders and tennis], and apply basic principles suitable for passing, attacking and defending.
  • Understand the challenge of competitiveness but also the importance of fair play and good sporting behaviour.
  • Use running, jumping, throwing and catching both for an athletic purpose and within a range of different contexts and games.
  • Develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance in gymnastics both in a static and travelling movement on floormats and on apparatus.
  • Listen to range of different music from a range of time periods, styles and genres and form more complex dances using a range of movement patterns and even incorporate gymnastic skills within. Children will work together in small groups, (both individually and synchronized) and as a whole class to perform dances.
  • Take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team
  • Swimming and water safety: KS2 children will be taught to swim confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres at Backwell Swimming Pool. They will be able to use a range of strokes effectively e.g. front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations

Our whole school approach to the teaching and learning of PE involves the following:

  • Despite limited space in the school, our curriculum maps ensure all children experience a wide range of sports and activities.
  • Skills and games are revisited yearly within key stages to allow greater development, depth and consolidation of skills taught
  • External coaches and PE teachers will work alongside class teachers and support teachers to develop teaching and target children who would benefit from extra PE sessions at lunchtime.
  • Regular CPD session are provided each year for all staff by specialists

Promoting Health and Well Being

  • Children’s activity is closely monitored and celebrated to promote healthy and active lifestyles in and out of school.
  • Activity at playtimes is well catered for. The children have access to stacks of equipment and outdoor spaces to play sports and games.
  • We are aiming to promote some links between the school and local sports clubs

Assessment

  • In class, the PE teacher monitors the progress of individual children against the MATT level descriptors for each PE unit. Children who are falling slightly behind will be targeted with extra sessions by Premier Sports during lunchtime sessions.
  • There will also be a termly pupil conference to gain children’s evaluation, perspective and feedback of PE.

Targets for 2020/21

  • To provide engaging, challenging and supportive PE lessons and develop children’s PE skills, physical and mental well-being across a range of sports and activities.
  • Develop pupil assessments and use of assessment data. Target children who would benefit from extra PE working alongside Premier Sports’ lunchtime clubs.
  • To team teach alongside teaching staff to widen subject knowledge and build confidence of teaching PE. Look for CPD opportunities on areas of development identified by staff skills audit
