Physical Education

Physical Education Intent, Implementation and Impact Statement
Longney Church of England Primary Academy believes that Physical Education (PE), experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is essential to ensure children attain optimum physical and emotional development and good health. We intend to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical education and in developing life skills. We want to teach children skills to keep them safe such as being able to swim. We also want to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others as part of an effective team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values. Our curriculum aims to improve the wellbeing and fitness of all children at Longney not only through the sporting skills taught, but through the underpinning values and disciplines PE promotes.
PE at Longney CE Primary provides challenging and enjoyable learning through a range of sporting activities including; invasion games, net & wall games, strike and field games, gymnastics, dance, swimming and outdoor & adventure.
  • The long term plan sets out the PE units which are to be taught throughout the year and ensures that the requirements of the National Curriculum are fully met.
  • Pupils participate in two high quality PE lessons each week, covering two sporting disciplines every half term. In addition, children are encouraged to participate in the varied range of extracurricular activities. After school and lunch time sports clubs are available through the week. 
  • Children are invited to attend competitive sporting events within the local area. This is an inclusive approach which endeavours to encourage not only physical development but also mental well-being. Each year a small group of Year 6 children are invited to become Sports Leaders for the school. They develop into sporting role models for the younger children, assisting with lunch-time clubs, our annual Sports day and any other Sporting activities.
  • Children participate in workshops covering a variety of sports throughout the year. For example archery, outdoor and adventure, indoor rowing and skipping, again providing the children with an opportunity to develop, improve their fitness and to try something new.
  • All pupils attend swimming lessons each year.
  • Pupils across the whole school take part in the “Daily Mile” to help meet the government target of all children being active for at least 60 minutes a day.
 Pupils will:
  •  acquire the age appropriate skills to access a range of fundamental skills and sports;
  •  be motivated to participate in a variety of sports through quality teaching that is engaging and fun;
  •  learn to take responsibility for their own health and fitness;
  •  have the opportunity to participate in competitive sports;
  •  be equipped with necessary skills and a love for sport;
  •  understand sportsmanship and the values associated with sport and be able to demonstrate this in their own lives.
