PE

In teaching PE at HAWTHORN TREE SCHOOL we aim for our children to develop holistically through the multi-ability skills of Social, Personal, Creative, Cognitive, Physical and Health and Fitness, as well as improving their Fundamental Movement Skills of Agility, Balance and Coordination.

 

The intent of our PE curriculum compliments and upholds the drivers of our whole school curriculum with resilience, respect, diversity, compassion and innovation all playing a part within at least one of the PE COGS.

IMPLEMENTATION OF PE AT HAWTHORN TREE SCHOOL

4a. Curriculum Maps

Curriculum maps provide key stakeholders with information on:

  • The activities pupils’ will experience over the course of a year / key stage.
  • When (e.g. which term) certain activities may occur.
  • The relative time allocation / duration of those activities.

 

The P.E. co-ordinator has responsibility for the organisation of HAWTHORN TREE SCHOOL’S PE Curriculum maps and its review. An example of this can be found below

The map is a guide for deliverers. Deliverers have the professionalism and autonomy to decide whether more or less learning time is required for each activity on the map.

The PE co-ordinator will assist staff members in their decision making based upon their professional needs, the needs of their individual classes and children and the activity in question.

 

4b. Units of work

At HAWTHORN TREE SCHOOL it is the responsibility of the P.E. Co-ordinator to source and plan the subject content for our units of work.

Sources of Information:

  1. Create Developments real PE programme embody the majority of our curriculum content and delivery ethos. They each share a holistic approach to the child’s learning, encompassing a progressive whole school programme. They are designed to focus on the children’s Fundamental Movement Skills of Agility, Balance and Coordination, as well as their social, cognitive, physical, personal, and creative as well as health and fitness skills and understanding.
  2. Create Developments real Gym programmes (from September 2021) also share this holistic approach to delivery.
  3. Create Developments real Dance programmes (from September 2021) also share this holistic approach to delivery.

All of Create Developments programmes are subscription based and found at www.real.jasmineactive.com (Username and Login set up can be obtained via the PE co-ordinator who holds the Admin rights).

 

  1. Swimming:

Swimming is provided during Key Stage 2 (Y3, 4, 5) using our local leisure centre’s school swimming programme and swimming instructors. A copy of the swim school programme, its objectives and record sheets can be found electronically on the staff shared drive.

 

Year 6 also have access to a TOP UP swim Programme offered by our Boston and District School Sports Partnership.

HAWTHORN TREE SCHOOL use Geoff Moulder Leisure Complex, Rowley Road. Boston. Lincolnshire. PE21 6JE as our swim school provider. Programmes run across approximately 8 sessions per year group. They place children within the most appropriate of 3 ability groups within which children look to develop.

 

Information on progress and attainment of the children is passed to the class teacher at the end of the 8 session programme. They are expected to share a copy of this with the PE co-ordinator. It is the PE co-ordinator’s responsibility to track and communicate swimming progress throughout Key Stage 2.

 

  1. Outdoor Adventurous Activity: During Key Stage 2 we use CAAPS (Curriculum Adventurous Activities for Schools) by Clive Atkins and Jan Hickman, 2016. It is endorsed by the Association for Physical Education and requires no specialist Outdoor Adventure Training.

 

  1. Athletic activities: As part of this unit of work pupils in Years 3-6 have the opportunity to achieve ESAA Athletics Awards or Athletics 365 challenge certificates.

 

  1. Playground Games and Team building: This unit of work was written by a Qualified PE teacher and has the aims of preparing pupils in EYFS and Key Stage 1 for their free time during playtimes and lunchtimes. With a strong emphasis of working together and establishing frameworks within which to play, this unit of work is built upon each year and will serve for preparing pupils from self-play regulation through to social-readiness for the playground.

 

It is recommended that staff seek the advice of the PE Co-ordinator should they feel any alternative provision would be beneficial to their classes. This is first and foremost to ensure the continuity, progression and quality of the Programmes are not compromised throughout the child’s journey in school.
