Physical Education at Copeland Road Primary School
Our PE leader is Mrs Jones
Our PE governor is Mrs Carol Torano
Children at Copeland Road are taught PE twice a week. One lesson is from our Real PE scheme where children develop fundamental movement skills of agility, balance and coordination – children continue to use these skills in game situations. All children develop the knowledge of six learning behaviours, through a whole child approach: social, physical, personal, health and fitness, creative and cognitive. The other lesson is a core task linked to a particular sport from the following: gymnastics, dance, athletics, games, swimming (KS2 only) and outdoor adventurous activities.
When children leave Copeland Road Primary School we would like them to:
- have a positive attitude towards physical activity and understand why staying active is important.
- understand the benefits of exercise and how this takes an integral role in staying fit and healthy.
- develop a positive attitude towards sport and competition so that they are confident with challenges.
- have embedded character values of fairness, respect, resilience and team work.
- become physically confident so that they can lead healthy, active lives.
The long-term plans for Physical Education are below, as well as the National Curriculum. There may be changes to the long-term plans as we continue to recover our curriculum after National lockdowns.
