Our PE Curriculum
At Moulton, we offer a bespoke physical education curriculum to ensure that all children develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities, are physically active for sustained periods, engage in competitive sports and activities and lead healthy, active lives.
Our curriculum incorporates appropriate aspects from a range of physical education schemes and resources including, ‘Real PE’, ‘Rawmarsh’, and ‘Val Sabin. ’This broad approach is designed to motivate, challenge and include all children in fun and engaging PE lessons that are enjoyable, challenging and accessible to all.
Our focus on the development of agility, balance and coordination, healthy competition and cooperative learning provides children with the opportunities to develop values and transferrable life skills such as fairness and respect as well as appreciating the benefits of a healthy and physically active lifestyle.
Our PE curriculum is further enhanced by participation in numerous competitive sporting tournaments with local schools and the opportunity to attend after school clubs. In Year 5, children have the opportunity to ‘learn to lead’ as a Play Leader. Leadership gives children the understanding of what it is like to have responsibility, to show respect for rules and brings the added challenge of organisation, communication and teamwork. Our Play leaders supervise a range of our sports and playtime games at lunchtime.
In Year 4, our children complete a course of swimming lessons. Children are taught to swim competently to a distance of at least 25 metres using a range of strokes effectively such as front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke. In addition, children who are able to swim 25m will perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
In Year 4 and 6, our residential opportunities provide children with the chance to take part in a range of outdoor and adventurous activities which promote collaboration, problem-solving and a positive attitude to physical activity.
We have been awarded the School Games Gold Award in recognition:
- of our school’s provision to engage pupils in 2 hours of sporting activities per week
- that at least 50% of our pupils participate in extracurricular sport
- that we provide appropriate competitive level sport
- that at least 15% of children lead and officiate school games.
Sports Premium Grant
The sports premium is money given to the school by the Department for Education to improve the provision of sport and PE in primary schools in a sustainable way. This is part of the London Olympics legacy fund and can only be spent on PE and Sport.
