At The Grove we are passionate about physical education and strive for the children to leave The Grove feeling excited and passionate, with a love of physical activity and the fundamental skills to enable the children to have the confidence and willingness to try new activities to lead an active and healthy lifestyle.

To achieve this we aim to:

  • Embed physical activity into the children’s daily lives, through themed week, clubs, leaders and daily opportunities to be active.

  • Target children to encourage them to be more active.

  • Provide equal opportunities for children, including participation and competition, through aesthetics, team games for boys and girls and individual games and giving the children to set personal targets.

    (Attend as many events as possible, encouraging children to take part in competitions – School Sports Partnership, local clubs etc)

  • Build on independence to build resilience to undertake a variety of roles within PE, such as, referee, captain and player and to show good sportsmanship.

  • Provide children with opportunities to experience different sports and activities.

  • Ensure equality through resources and funding

  • Ensure children have access to at least two hours of curriculum PE and the recommended 2 hours of physical activity per day as recommended by the Department of Health and opportunities to attend extra curricular clubs.

  • Understand the importance of PE for their physical and mental health to to create a positive growth mindset.

As part of our PE curriculum, Year 2 children from Beech and Willow Tree Classes joined Key Stage 1 children from Berry Pomeroy School for a basketball coaching session. The festival was run by Saints Southwest Sports Coaches and the children from both schools had a fantastic time together making new friends and learning new skills!
Our full curriculum for PE and the linked progression of skills plan are available in school.  Feel free to request a copy.
