Physical Education At Blakehill
At Blakehill Primary School, our Physical Education curriculum has a skills based focus that provides children with the skills and knowledge to allow them to lead a healthy and active lifestyle.
By ensuring our children are able to access a curriculum that covers all areas of physical education, as set out in the National Curriculum, we able to accurately assess our children's abilities.
We provide a wide range of opportunities so that children are able to gain transferable skills for the five areas of activity (Games, Gymnastics, Dance, OAA and Swimming) as outlined in the Primary National curriculum for PE. Children are able to do this through their physical education and school sports offered after school. Mrs Russell, who leads PE throughout school, works closely with all sports coaches and teachers to ensure a high quality curriculum is delivered to all children at Blakehill.
Every half term a minimum of four after school sports per week are offered to our children.The sports we offer change each half term so that our children are able to experience a varied programme. Our aim is to provide our pupils with as many opportunities as possible to gain new skills, develop existing ones and transfer these to game situations.
To help us provide high quality provision in both our physical education lessons and our school sports our in house sports specialist, qualified coach and play worker work with staff and children across school developing PE lessons, mentoring staff and modelling best practice.
