Pupils are encouraged to engage in regular physical activity through the provision of competitive and non-competitive sports. We aim to inspire healthy young people who are able to follow the rules of a game, develop good sportsmanship and set themselves personal challenges.
In Key Stage 1 pupils are taught to:
• master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities;
• participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending; and
• perform dances using simple movement patterns.
In Key Stage 2 Pupils are taught to:
• play competitive games, modified where appropriate (e.g. badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders and tennis), and apply basic principles suitable for attacking and defending;
• develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance through athletics and gymnastics;
• perform dances using a range of movement patterns;
• take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team; and
• compare their performances with previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best
