PE at BPA
The curriculum for PE covers a wide spectrum of activities for the children to experience over the course of their school journey, such as Dance, Fitness, Gymnastics and Football. We endeavour to allow access to more specialised areas also, such as archery, where external agencies are involved. The local area is used for certain sports events, i.e. a local athletics track is used for Sport Relief and Sports Day where possible. This allows pupils to experience competing in such venues, which in turn has encouraged a number of children to join sports clubs.
The impact of the curriculum is monitored in several different ways to ensure that pupils all have access to an engaging, active PE curriculum. Pupil opinions, assessment outcomes and progression, planning, discussions with teachers and management, plus lesson observations, where possible, are used to inform the quality of learning and understanding that pupils have gained.
The aim is for pupils to understand the importance of physical activity throughout their lives.
