Frogwell School uses the REAL PE scheme of work which supports and helps to develop the whole child. Teachers have received training by REAL PE and are now using REAL GYM in addition. This is a fundamental skills development scheme devised by Ronnie Heath from Create development. This scheme not only focuses on the physical development of the child, but their social, cognitive, personal development and health and fitness.

The ‘REAL PE’ programme provides fun and simple to follow Schemes of Work and support for Early Years Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 practitioners that give them the confidence and skills to deliver outstanding PE. It is fully aligned to the new National Curriculum and Ofsted requirements and focuses on the development of agility, balance and coordination, healthy competition and cooperative learning through a unique and market leading approach to teaching and learning in PE.
At Frogwell School we believe all children should experience high quality PE. Our Curriculum is based on the teaching and development of the basic skills: Agility, Balance and Coordination. We follow a Multi skills based curriculum from Foundation Stage to Year 6, introducing formal games such as football, tag rugby, hockey, netball and kwik cricket in KS2. There is also a strong focus on gymnastics, dance and outdoor education. All pupils benefit from one term per year of swimming lessons. Pupils who are not yet swimming 25m in Year 6 are provided with an additional booster lessons before leaving primary school.
