Here at Moulton Primary School we firmly believe that sport and physical exercise should be at the heart of everyday life. Every child should have access to two hours of high quality P.E lessons every week and have opportunities to get involved in activities throughout the school day to help foster a love of being physically active. Our intention is for this positive attitude to stay with them into adulthood so they can lead healthy lifestyles.
Acquiring the essential fundamental movement skills is at the centre of our PE curriculum. We use Real PE to help engage and challenge EVERY child in our primary school as it focusses on developing these movement skills as well as their emotional and thinking skills.
Real PE also develops the whole child with each term having a multi-ability focus:
- Health and Fitness
Our curriculum aims to develop our pupils’ existing skills and continually apply them through different aspects of physical education, providing them with opportunities to experience a broad and balanced PE curriculum. The children develop their physical literacy through a range of experiences in, dance, gymnastics, athletics, game skills, swimming, outdoor and adventurous activities.
Classes have two high quality PE lessons each week; however, at certain times PE days may need to be changed due to bad weather, a hall slot being needed for an important event or staff having to alter the timetable to cater for different aspects of the children’s learning. Therefore, it is essential to have PE kits in school every day so that all pupils can participate if class sessions need to be changed to a different day.
ALL pupils are required to have a PE kit in class even if they are not going to be actively involved as a performer. We encourage all pupils who are excused, to be involved in the learning process through the role of a coach, umpire, referee or leader.
Children have two sessions of PE every week and will need to have the following kit in a P.E. bag.
- Shorts and a T-shirt.
- Tracksuit top/sweatshirt.
- Leggings/tracksuit bottoms (cuffed legs).
- A pair of socks for girls wearing tights.
- Hair ties to tie back long hair.
- Earrings should ideally be removed before PE, or covered using tape if they are unable to do so by themselves.
Changing for PE
At Moulton Primary School we are aware that getting changed for PE can make some children feel vulnerable or anxious.
Our changing policy helps to ensure the safeguarding of both children and adults.
