Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity Curriculum Aim
Our aim, at Malvern Wells CE Primary School, is to create a high quality, inclusive PE curriculum which inspires challenges and motivates all children. Through physical education and sport, we believe all our children can achieve success and develop key life skills while promoting a strong sense of self confidence.
A high-quality PESSPA curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect. This is fundamental to enable us to nurture the potential for brighter futures.
There should be a clear progression in skills and a pathway for all children to challenge themselves. There should be an opportunity for every child to apply the skills they learn in our PESSPA lessons in competitive situations against other schools and each other, whether that is through festivals, competitions, or leagues.
All our long-term plans for each class can be found below. Reflecting our mixed year classes, our curriculum, for KS1 and KS2, is mapped into a two year cycle. We use a variety of resources to support our high quality planning including Val Sabin, Rising Stars Champions, ASA swimming, OAA resource and Twinkl.
These plans have been adapted so that Classes 2, 3 and 4 follow the same sports as a theme each half term over a two-year cycle, making progression of skills easier to see and assess.
