Swimming is an important life skill and we aspire for all children to leave primary school having met at least the minimum requirements of the National Curriculum.

Implementation

PE at Christ Church provides challenging and enjoyable learning through a range of sporting activities including invasion games, net & wall games, striking and fielding games, gymnastics, dance, outdoor and adventure, archery, badminton and swimming.

  • Both Year 4 class has swimming during the academic year. Booster swimming sessions are provided to children who have not met the requirements.

  • Pupils participate in at least 2 hours of high-quality PE lessons each week.

  •  The Long-Term planning for each class sets out the PE units which are to be taught throughout the year and ensures that the requirements of the National Curriculum are fully met.

  • Assessments are tracked by the PE Co-ordinator and used as handover for transition at the end of the academic year so that the new class teacher is aware of what the class has already been taught and to identify any areas that need further development.

  •  All staff can access the Medium-Term planning and half termly assessments for each class throughout the academic year.

  • Teachers use and adapt planning and resources to ensure lessons across years show progression.

  • Children are encouraged to participate in the varied range of extra-curricular activities. We provide inclusive and enjoyable clubs which increases children’s physical activity.

Impact

At Christ Church, we ensure that our PE curriculum is progressive and allows children to develop fundamental skills and apply them to a variety of sports and activities. All children are provided with the necessary skills and given opportunities to demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best. Our pupils are physically active, and this has a positive impact on their learning in the classroom. Children understand how to lead a healthy lifestyle and understand the importance of regular exercise. We aspire for children to enjoy PE and develop a love of sport and physical activity which becomes part of their future life outside of primary school. Children can represent the school at sporting events from local to county level. Alongside this, we share sporting achievements both in and out of school in Achievers Assembly, so that we are promoting sports and activities, as well as celebrating all levels of success.

PE Kit

As we have made the decision to permanently allow children to come into school in their PE kit on PE days, the correct PE kit is even more important than ever. It is now your child’s uniform for two days a week. The correct PE is detailed below:

 

  • Navy joggers for outdoor/ autumn winter PE.

  • Black shorts for the spring/summer.

  • A house coloured t-shirt (red, green, blue or yellow).

  • A navy hoody or zipped tracksuit top.

 

PE kit is available at lads and lasses. It is not compulsory to have PE with the school logo on. If you would prefer your child to wear a plain t-shirt/ hoody, that is absolutely fine. However, we do not allow t-shirts/ sweatshirts with brand logos.
