Welcome to Hadrian's PE Curriculum page!!!
At Hadrian, all pupils have the right to experience a variety of opportunities to participate in physical activity and sport across the whole curriculum. We recognise the importance of sport in every aspect of daily life and new government initiatives relating to children completing 60 minutes of activity each day, are vital in allowing children to increase their levels of physical activity at school and through after school sports provision. When children leave Hadrian at the end of Year 6, our aim is to make sure they have been given the opportunities to develop and improve basic PE skills in a range of different sports. Not only can it teach children about developing important skills and keeping themselves healthy, but also about problem solving, self-assessment (identifying their strengths), communication, team work and competitiveness which can be carried across all the different subjects in the curriculum. Building vital skills, whether in football, gymnastics or dance are extremely important and every child will constantly and consistently develop their own personal PE skills from Nursery up to Year 6.
At Hadrian, our main objectives through the teaching of PE are:
At Hadrian, we believe that children should be given as many opportunities as possible to enhance their basic skills in PE and become healthier and more physically active. Through staff training and CPD, staff are able to access specialist sports development time to observe specialist coaching in PE lessons, which improves knowledge and understanding how to teach key basic skills in a variety of different subjects as well as overall staff confidence. The PE co-ordinator also completes training and then shares ideas and resources with other staff members through links with the Youth Sports Trust (YST) and the partnership with South Tyneside sport.
At Hadrian, we follow a skills progression framework, where children develop ad improve basic skills in PE lessons from Nursery to Year 6. This ensures children have the relevant skills necessary when they leave Hadrian and move onto secondary education. The progression framework is used in relation with a scheme of work, in which children build on the previous years’ skills. This allows children to become not only more familiar with basic skills in a range of different sports, but they become more advanced and are able to challenge themselves when attempting different types of sports and physical activities.
The continuation of links with local sports clubs and organisations, allows us at Hadrian to cater for a range of different sports, for a range of different ages, abilities and backgrounds. We understand that PE lends itself to many other subjects across the curriculum and can help pupil progress through maths and English with our ‘Active in 5’ daily physical activity, active starters and lessons based around incorporating small bursts of physical activity. We are constantly providing many opportunities for children to access sport, through School sports games competitions, lunchtime and after school club, as well as community links with South Shields FC Foundation, Harton and Westoe rugby club, swimming at Haven point, Foundation of Light, Boldon LTC, Sportsworks, Thurston and the Newcastle Eagles. Our links with South Shields FC foundation have allowed the children to participate in PE based sessions with a cross-curricular focus on maths, phonics, fine motor skills and basic movements and PSHE and these are sessions delivered by professional coaches across all year groups.
To achieve our main objectives at Hadrian we will:
Our PE curriculum is very high quality, well thought out and is carefully planned to demonstrate progression through a range of sports. The percentage of children taking part in curriculum based sports provision as well as lunchtime and after school sports clubs has increased by 50%. This increase has allowed children the opportunity to experience a variety of different sports, increase enjoyment in PE and sport lessons and develop the necessary skills to take them to the next stage in their own personal development.
Furthermore, we measure and evidence the impact of our curriculum by:
By the end of Year 6, children should have a vast wealth of knowledge and understanding of the basic skills required in a range of different sports. Children should be more physically active and be able to transfer their skills into secondary education and prepare themselves for the future. Children will leave Hadrian prepared for their future education.
