Physical Education

At Sele First School we recognise the vital contribution of Physical Education to a child’s physical, cognitive, social and emotional development as well as the role it can play in a child’s spiritual, moral and cultural development.

We aim to provide a broad and balanced PE curriculum to develop children’s increasing self-confidence in their ability to manage themselves and their bodies within a variety of individual, team, co-operative and competitive situations. Through a balance of individual, paired and group activities, we aim to cater for the different strengths, needs and preferences of each child, using adaptive teaching where appropriate.

We believe that through the variety of opportunities that our broad PE curriculum offers, children will have a strong opportunity to develop competence in a range of physical activities. As well as this, children can develop a sense of personal achievement, fair play, teamwork and an understanding of the ways in which physical activity contributes to a healthy lifestyle and provide opportunities to overcome social and cultural boundaries.

We plan a range of activities and events that provide children with a broad base of knowledge, skills and understanding, which they can develop and refine during their time at Sele First School. We encourage children to develop their creative and expressive abilities, through improvisation and problem solving. The importance of a healthy body and mind is embedded within the PE curriculum. Children are taught to appreciate the importance of a healthy and fit body and begin to understand factors that affect health and fitness.

In line with the Government PE and Sport Premium Funding, where possible, the school provides opportunities for children to work with PE specialists. The funding will also; increase the whole school’s physical activity; raise the profile of PE as a tool for whole school improvement; increase the confidence and skills of staff in teaching PE and Sport; broaden the curriculum on offer to the children; and increase participation in competitive sport.

Children will be afforded the opportunity to take part in competitive sport, both in school and between different schools through the School Games; our strong links with local sports clubs and coaches; local and regional competitions and hosting our own events.

Children in Y4 also take part in a weekly swimming lesson at the local sports centre, Wentworth Leisure Centre. They have progressive lessons in ten week blocks that build upon skills in water confidence, competence and water safety.

At Sele First, we understand the vital role physical activity plays in children’s mental health and wellbeing.
