Intent, Implementation & Impact

At OCEPS, we provide a high-quality physical education curriculum, which is inspiring to all pupils and encourages them to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. We provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. This is important because opportunities to compete in sport and other activities help to build self-esteem, character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect. At Oldswinford CE Primary School it is recognised that PE needs to build on the children’s natural enthusiasm for movement, by expressing and testing themselves in a variety of situations. Through physical education we aim to enable pupils to develop co-ordination, strength, stamina and skilfulness and to promote spatial awareness, intelligent reactions to situations and appreciation of physical excellence. We believe that Physical Education should lead to a sense of wellbeing, a greater understanding of health and fitness, a healthy lifestyle and a feeling of self-confidence.

Whole school overview

Below is an example progression ladder following the GetSet4PE scheme. We have these for each area in PE, so it is clear to see the progression in each year.

Assessment in P.E.

Assessments are carried out by class teachers at the end of each half term for each unit of P.E. covered, using the progression documents and assessment criteria to help support judgements. This is recorded through the GetSet4PE scheme.

Whilst teachers are carrying out P.E. lessons they are persistently assessing the children’s skills and making adaptations to help support the children. Photographs and videos are also taken during the lesson to show the children’s abilities.

Plenaries take place at the end of each lesson to ensure the children have understood their learning objectives, as well as their social, emotional and thinking objectives. This time also allows for the children to reflect and think deeper about what skills they have developed, why they are important and how they can be transferred to other learning and in their life.

The children are regularly asked about their P.E. lessons, allowing them to use their pupil voice to impact their learning.

Our Oldswinford Values linked to P.E.

At Oldswinford we have our school vision, 'Believe, achieve & shine brighter together' and 7 key Christian values of love, respect, trust, courage, forgiveness, generosity and joyChildren who do not have their kit or cannot take part in P.E. will use one of the non-participant lanyards to help carry out activities/help support the children/teacher, each of which show help display our school values.

Sports Council

We have an enthusiastic sports council team, who help promote all things sport in school. They listen to their peers to hear what they would like to see in school, so that we can provide activities that the children want and will enjoy. Sports council have lots of responsibilities and they also work hard to create a newsletter each month, so that children and parents alike, know what sports activities are happening in Oldswinford.

Our P.E. library area

After having placed 3rd in the ‘Beat the Street’ incentive, we decided to use our prize voucher to purchase some P.E. based books to encourage children to be active and maybe engage in a new sport. We have a large choice from fiction and non-fiction books, all about a vast range of sports to conjure interest, as well as not giving up and to keep trying. Be sure to visit the library and pick up a book πŸ“–
