At APSoL, we want every child to get access to a full PE curriculum and learn how to develop a healthy lifestyle from a young age. We have decided to use Striver PE Curriculum, because it has been created with a sole purpose: to improve primary aged pupils’ long-term physical and mental wellbeing. We want all our children to achieve this by ensuring children of all abilities feel motivated and engaged, and teachers of all experience levels feel confident and in control.
Intent (What do we want the children to learn and why? What knowledge and skills are taught?)
To deliver two hours of high-quality PE with a focus on developing Fundamental Movement Skills to become competent, confident and motivated in a range of physical activities. All children are encouraged to partake in healthy competition and opportunities for personal challenge development are given.
All children will experience two hours of high-quality PE in a safe and supportive environment to increase their self-confidence.
The Striver Whole School PE Curriculum is from the EYFS -Y6 with over 400 PE lessons, supported by six wellbeing units. Progressive planning, teaching videos and teaching methods are all accessed via our online subscription making teachers and learners more confident with their PE skills and knowledge.
Implementation (How are we doing it? How are the pupils going to achieve the acquisition of knowledge? How does the curriculum delivery this?)
We will deliver two hours of high-quality PE by following a PE curriculum by Striver, with a focus on improving primary aged pupils’ long-term physical and mental wellbeing by ensuring children of all abilities feel motivated and engaged, and teachers of all experience levels feel confident and in control. Striver contains a progression map for all areas of PE including games, athletics and dance but also contains six wellbeing units which teach the children positive and healthy lifestyle.
Impact (How do we evaluate what knowledge and skills pupils have gained against expectation?)
We enable the children to make informed choices about physical activity and healthy lifestyles throughout their lives. Teachers assess children’s knowledge, understanding and skills in PE by observing and assessing using one touch assessment in Striver (subscription).
SEND-PE lessons are adapted so that all pupils, including SEN pupils can access learning. Eg ball size, small modified games, short period of activity.
Reception pupils PE is centred around
In Reception, children´s PE lessons will focus specifically on the development of gross motor skills and the development matters according to: ‘physical development’ (Prime area). Fundamental skills development learning starts in Reception so that there is a progressive pathway through the agility, balance and coordination skills.
