P.E. teaching at Our Lady's is in line with Curriculum 2014 and aims to ensure that all pupils:
develop confidence to master and 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.
In the Early Years Foundation Stage physical development includes developing fine and gross motor control and co-ordination, spatial awareness, BEAM (Balance, Exercise and Movement) and promoting an understanding of being healthy.
At Key Stages 1 and 2 P.E. is developed using the school's scheme of work and covers athletics, games and dance at Key Stage 1 with the addition of swimming and outdoor and adventurous activities during Key Stage 2. Whilst gymnastics is not statutory, it is still taught across the school to develop flexibility, strength, control and balance.
Resources are centrally stored and are regularly updated in line with our P.E. development plan. Large equipment undergoes an annual safety check.
