Physical Education Curriculum at OLSB
At OLSB, the aim of P.E is to inspire our children to love living a healthy life. We want our children to develop a deep knowledge and a range of skills, enabling them to sustain and enjoy a positive, active lifestyle. We will teach the key Concepts of Movement, Agility, Balance, Co-ordination, Co-operation, Competition, Sequence, Health, Fitness, Fairness and Respect. Through teaching these concepts all children at OLSB will hopefully develop a broad range of skills and a love of being active!
All children at OLSB will benefit from a broad, deep and progressive P.E curriculum at OLSB.
In the early years our children will start to develop the FUNdamentals of movement whilst participating in lessons with a theme which mirrors their classroom topic. This enables the children to develop their physical literacy whilst embedding the learning achieved in the classroom.
In KS1 the Physical Education curriculum changes to an activity specific focus. Children learn how the body changes during exercise whilst further developing the FUNdamentals of movement (Jog, Sprint, Jump, Hop, Weight on Hands, Balance & Co-ordination). Through the effective teaching of Physical Education, a quality and varied extra-curricular offer and structured play during lunch times, children will be competent in the FUNdamentals of movement at the completion of Key Stage 1.
In KS2 the P.E becomes both broad and deep. Children develop their Key Concepts through a variety of ‘vehicles’, all teaching staff receive 1 to 1 CPD with the Collegiate P.E Specialist Mr. Sigley. This enables the children at OLSB to develop their knowledge, understanding and performance in P.E through activities such as Handball, Parkour, Health Related Exercise, Tag Rugby, Dance, Football, Athletics, Basketball, Gymnastics, High 5 Netball and many more.
Children at OLSB will develop a broad range of skills in a variety of activities. A deep understanding of how the human body works and the importance of exercise and hopefully find at least one form of physical activity that they love and will pursue for the rest of their life.
Use of PE & Sport Funding
In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education (PE) and sport. This funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.
Funding will be allocated to all maintained and state-funded schools with primary phase pupils, including: primary, middle, special and non-maintained special schools, academies and pupil referral units from 1 September 2013.
In 2021/2022 Our Lady & St Benedict's will receive £17,770.00. Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
The schools within the Newman Catholic Collegiate have pooled a percentage of this funding, employing a Physical Education Specialist Leader of Education (Mr Sigley) to manage and co-ordinate PE across all 8 primary schools.
Throughout 2021/2022 all of the School’s within the Newman Catholic Collegiate will benefit from:
The Newman Catholic Collegiate recognises the important role P.E and Sport can play in developing children’s self-esteem, physical literacy and physical, social and mental health.
Each school within the Collegiate continually evaluates their PE and sports delivery. Please see the 'PE Impact' document below for further information.
