Physical Education
 
At Saltaire Primary School we recognise the value of Physical Education (PE). We aim to develop a fun, high quality Physical Education Curriculum that is accessible to all. We aim to maximise each child’s potential and develop a passion for a sport. We want the children to understand how to keep their minds and bodies healthy and understand why this is important. We want them to develop a real team spirit that will support them throughout their school life. After collaboration with our pupils our PE curriculum is based on ideas from the children and direct links to the  Early Years Framework and the National Curriculum. A progression document has been created so show skills from Reception to Year 6. These progression documents have been planned in order to build on the skills needed to meet the end of KS objectives in the National Curriculum. Our long term plan is broad and balanced, allowing children to access a wide variety of high quality PE and sports provision, something the children of Saltaire desired. The long term plan begins by focussing on the fundamental skills and then moving onto skills and activities that can lead to different sports. Our children are given lots of opportunities to take part in competitive sports throughout the year. We do not have a set PE scheme as the skills are there for teachers to plan their own creative lessons, however, we do draw on high quality resources to support this.
