What does PE at Frogwell offer our children?

At Frogwell Primary, we offer high quality PE teaching, sporting learning opportunities and sports provision, which is inclusive for all and engages all pupils in a supportive and challenging environment. We aim to provide a culture which inspires an active generation who enjoy PE, encourage each other and achieve at their own level. For our pupils, we promote and educate about the benefits of sport and exercise, leading to long-term healthy and active lifestyles. Our curriculum will support our pupils in becoming resilient and reflective, whilst striving for personal excellence and portraying good sportsmanship. We provide opportunities for pupils to adopt a positive growth mindset and believe that anything can be achieved with determination and resilience. Our pupils are taught the value and benefits of collaboration, cooperation and teamwork, with an understanding of fairness and equality of play to embed lifelong values. The value of competing appropriately against others; celebrating their own and others' sporting achievements and successes with maturity is promoted through our planning and progression.

What are the main aims of our PE curriculum?

Our aim is to provide a rich and balanced PE curriculum that enables all children the ability to be successful. We will ensure that our PE is meaningful and appropriate, supporting children as they develop their physical, social and mental wellbeing. We aim to create a passionate and competitive environment that supports children to develop a lifelong love for PE and healthy lifestyles. All pupils will have the opportunity to increase physical fitness, investigate new activities and compete fairly, with an underlying message of respect.

At Frogwell we recognise the value of Physical Education, and we fully adhere to the aims of the national curriculum to ensure that all pupils:

  • Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  • Are physically active for sustained periods of time
  • Engage in competitive sports and activities
  • Lead healthy and active lives

How is the teaching of PE organised?

 In Key Stage 1 and 2, all children access two hours of high quality PE lessons each week, covering one sporting activity every half-term. Throughout the year, there is curriculum support from Up and Under, who also lead a range of lunchtime and after-school activities. The PE Curriculum Overview sets out the PE Units/Activities which are to be taught each half-term throughout the year and ensures that the requirements of the National Curriculum are fully met. We use and adapt Schemes of Learning from PE Hub to ensure planning, content and delivery is age appropriate. This scheme ensures lessons, year-on-year, are progressive. The emphasis of our PE curriculum is inclusion for all children regardless of sporting ability. Years 5 and 6 and the Complex Needs Resource Base attend swimming lessons during the year. We ensure all children experience competition at some level, individually or in a team, within lessons and by subscribing to the Chippenham Sports Partnership. We have an annual inclusive Sports Day, with the emphasis on participation and achievement for all.
