At Freeman’s Endowed CE Junior Academy, it is our intention to build a curriculum that enables children to develop knowledge, skills and vocabulary in a broad range of sporting activities, as well as developing values and transferable life skills such as fairness and respect.
Our PE curriculum is based on an enhanced model of progression from Years 3-6 and this has been devised by our PE subject leader. This progression has been planned in order to build on the skills needed to meet the end of KS objectives in the National Curriculum. Our long term plan is broad and balanced, allowing children to access a wide variety of high-quality PE and sports provision. The long term plan begins by focussing on the fundamental skills (ABC) and then moving onto skills and activities that can lead to different sports. Further up the school, we start making the links between sports and finally in years 5 and 6, it becomes more sport specific as we get them ready for secondary school. Children are given plenty of opportunities to build upon prior knowledge, allowing children to know more, and remember more. Children are given plenty of opportunities to take part in competitive sports throughout the year. We use PE Passport as our PE scheme in order to develop our teacher’s CPD. Teachers are encouraged to use this, alongside their professional judgement when planning their lessons. Provision is enhanced through the use of the Sports Premium Funding and are covered by the 5 key performance indicators.
At Freeman’s we are encouraging our children to become leaders. They will be responsible for running house competitions and encouraging their year group to be more involved in physical activity.
The first competition has been to run as many daily miles as possible and the children have done a fantastic job of encouraging and recording the results. We will announce the winning house in Worship after each competition.
