Willington Primary School PE Intent
The intent of our PE curriculum is to provide all children with regular physical activity and school sports, so that each child can lead an active and healthy lifestyle.
By the end of Year 6, each child will have received a high quality of Physical Education, providing them with the skills, confidence and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and encouragement to partake in lifelong physical activity and sport.
We believe that our children should be physically active everyday as this supports the children’s cerebral, emotional, physical, social and spiritual development. Therefore, we offer a wide variety of varied opportunities throughout the school day, to foster a love of PE amongst the children. These opportunities include: a range of extra-curricular activities both before and after school, the Daily Mile (Active 30), PE lessons, Bikeability and active lunchtimes ran by our Play Leaders.
We also believe that all children should have the chance to experience a broader range of activities including competitive sports. Thus, each class has the opportunity to attend at least one intra-school event per year with the other local schools. Alongside this, we hold various inter-school festivals and competitions, as these instil wonderful values such as resilience, respect and teamwork, as well as providing suitable challenges for all.
Each year, we take part in a range of School Games (Level 2+), with the intent that this may lead our children on to compete at regional events or further. We also include our wider community in sports by inviting parents to our annual sports days, and encouraging Park and Stroll/Walk Once a Week (WOW).
We truly believe that PE can be accessed and enjoyed by all of our pupils and celebrate their success at every opportunity.
The curriculum intent for each year group is laid out in the long-term plan for 2020/2021.
