Kingsway Primary School

Physical Education (PE)

At Kingsway Primary we strive to create a culture which aims to inspire an active generation to enjoy PE, encourage each other and achieve. We provide a supportive and safe environment for pupils to flourish in a wide range of physical activities to support their physical, emotional, spiritual, social and moral development.’ The Five ways To Well Being’ runs throughout school and pupils are encouraged to ‘Be Active’ with active breaks and lunchtimes when they are given the opportunity to participate in intra-year group tournaments or enjoy a wide range of activities which include netball shooting, football, hoola-hooping, hoop-la and skipping.

At Kingsway we offer a varied, stimulating and inclusive curriculum to ensure that all pupils progress physically through an inspirational, interesting program of activity. All pupils are given the opportunity to be physically active, maintain a healthy lifestyle and increase their self-esteem. We aspire for pupils to adopt a positive mind-set and believe that anything can be achieved with determination and resilience. We aim to promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles and offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities for KS2 on four nights a week. Good sporting attitudes, co-operation and fair play are a priority for both participants and spectators in lessons, extra-curricular clubs and competitions to embed life-long values.

Swimming lessons are given to year five pupils, with extra sessions provided in year six, to develop confidence and water safety knowledge and also to meet the National Curriculum requirements of swimming 25m by the end of year six.

Along with PSHE and science our PE curriculum teaches pupils about the importance of healthy eating, physical fitness and good nutrition. We aim to develop the necessary skills, knowledge and understanding which will have a positive impact on our pupils’ futures and ultimately encourage them to become physically active citizens to benefit their long-term health and well-being.
