At Mansfield Green E-ACT Primary Academy it is our vision for every pupil to succeed and achieve their potential, as well as to lead physically active lives. We provide a high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed. It provides opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness, builds their character and helps to embed values such as fairness and respect. (As outlined in the National curriculum).
The curriculum will develop deep seated knowledge and understanding, linking different activities through skills and fitness. It will develop social skills, empathy, emotional intelligence and sportsmanship enabling pupils to grow into confident, valued members of the community, who live active healthy lifestyles in both mind and body, leading to a healthy state of well-being.
The curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities, are physically active for sustained periods of time and engage in competitive sports and activities.
In Key Stage 1 pupils are given opportunities to develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. (Dance, games and gymnastics) They will engage in competitive and cooperative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations. (Both against themselves and against others.)
In Key Stage 2 pupils build on prior learning and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to apply them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. Pupils are taught to use jumping, running, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination. They develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance through athletics and gymnastics. Pupils develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.
The PE curriculum at Mansfield Green E-ACT Primary Academy has been chosen to ensure progression, a development of knowledge and skills whilst engendering a love for and enjoyment of the subject by all pupils in our primary school.
Our aim is to ensure that our pupils with a passion for sport are successful individuals in their chosen field/career.
