Welcome to our P.E Curriculum page
Each academic year, the children at Denfield will experience games, dance, swimming, athletics and gymnastics teaching through a multi-skilled approach. They will also get the opportunity to take part in a residential visit in years 5 and 6. This allows the child to gain independence, experience outdoor education, through problem solving and learning the geography of the area. We endeavour to let children experience a vast range of PE and sport and hope they will continue to enjoy one of these sports throughout their education and beyond. Children of all abilities and needs are able to participate in P.E lessons.
We also recognise that PE and school sport is a key area in which social and personal skills are taught and learnt.
We aim to offer a wide variety of after school sporting clubs, to all age groups. Please see the timetable in the clubs section of the website. These will run over two terms. These are run by dedicated sports coaches or teachers. Some clubs are fee payable.
The school is part of a group of local schools, whom regularly meet for festivals for KS1 and 2 and mini tournaments or friendly matches. This enables us to compete at District and County levels. Also, at times, specialist coaches come into school to deliver lessons to upskill teachers.
We feel the children’s safety is a very important part of PE teaching and learning, therefore we have guidelines on the dress code for both indoor and outdoor PE lessons. These can be found in our Policy for your information.
All classes now use a scheme of work called Real PE for their PE sessions. Below is a summary of why we are passionate about delivering Real PE at Denfield Park.
What is real PE?
The real PE programme provides fun and simple to follow Schemes of Work and support for Early Years Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 practitioners that give them the confidence and skills to deliver outstanding PE. It is fully aligned to the new National Curriculum and Ofsted requirements and focuses on the development of agility, balance and coordination, healthy competition and cooperative learning through a unique and market leading approach to teaching and learning in PE.
What makes real PE unique?
Real PE is, first and foremost, a philosophy and approach which aims to transform how we teach PE in order to include, challenge and support every child. It supports teachers and other deliverers to make small changes that will have a significant impact on their learners.
Key Stage One: The children continue to develop their fundamental movement skills and start to learn small sided games based on games such as volleyball.
Key Stage Two: Pupils continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways. Through a variety of small sided games children develop awareness of attacking and defending, applying tactics and methods in evaluating their own and others successes.
