Intent, Implementation and Impact

Intent -

At Holy Cross Catholic Primary School, physical education is an important part of our curriculum that is inclusive and engages all pupils. Children develop the knowledge, skills and competence to excel in a broad range of sports and physical activities. We aim to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that enables all children to achieve their personal best. Children participate in competitive sport, ensuring they do their best and that they display good sportsmanship. We aim for all children to be physically active for sustained periods of time and to make informed decisions to lead healthy and active lives.

Implementation -

Children participate in high-quality PE lessons twice a week covering two different sports/skills per term. Teachers use the yearly curriculum map and the progression skills map to plan PE lessons effectively. Teachers follow the curriculum map to ensure the children are participating in a variety of sports throughout the year. Children compete in Football matches against other schools and take part in the Borough Sports (KS1 And KS2). Children attend swimming lessons in Years 3 and 4. We provide children with opportunities to participate in extra-curricular activities that are inclusive, enjoyable and increase children’s physical activity.

Impact -

At Holy Cross Catholic Primary School, we ensure that our PE curriculum is progressive and allows children to develop fundamental skills and apply them to a variety of sports and activities. All children are provided with the skills and given opportunities to achieve their personal best. Our pupils are physically active and this has positive implications on their learning in the classroom. Children understand how to lead a healthy lifestyle and understand the importance of exercise. We hope children enjoy PE and develop a love of sport, and physical activity, that they pursue outside school and in future life after primary school. All pupils understand the value and importance of being a good sportsperson.
