Our Real PE Journey begins - September 2022
Autumn term 2022 - Mrs Devlin introduced Real PE to EYFS, Year 1 and Year 4. In January 2023, our whole school Inset was extremely successful and now all Year groups are accessing it.
Each year group are using the Core REAL PE approach which focuses on one multi-ability per half term.
Spring 1 is cognitive! In addition to that, the children will develop two fundamental movement skills per half term as well specific to their Year group.

Welcome to our PE curriculum page.
Our intent statement
At Belle Vue Primary School, we all strive to make every single child feel part of our team, linking this to our PE motto and vision of ‘Together, Everyone Achieves More’. We believe the delivery of a holistic approach consisting of high-quality, knowledge and skills-based, progressive PE sessions play a vital role within our whole school curriculum. Not only does it support children’s physical development, highlight the importance of being active and help create healthier, happier children, but it also underpins the enhancement of their social, creative, cognitive awareness preparing them for their future.
Through effective delivery using a fundamental based approach through Real PE, we aim for our children to develop essential knowledge for their physical development but also inspiring a life long love of being active. Through the delivery of Real PE, staff are able to address the essential fundamentals needed for effective gross development which can then be applied to a range of sporting areas as their education continues. In addition, Real PE offers our children the opportunity to develop individual characteristics linked to their: personal, social, physical, creative, cognitive and health & fitness. Integrating elements of these multi-abilities into not only our PE lessons, but our school-life, we hope to develop our children’s minds as well as physical being.
While our children are with us at Belle Vue, they have access to numerous opportunities linked to their Physical Education through delivery of a wide-range of extra-curricular clubs and maintaining a link with Carlisle United football club, following their Primary Stars programme, which not only supports the children’s learning but also develops staff’s future delivery by providing effective CPD during the programme being taught by the club’s coaches.
As well as this, our membership with Cumbria School Games provides our SEND and least active children with regular chances to participate by representing our team and compete at their level. In addition to this, we are also part of our cluster’s competition calendar, which is supported by a local secondary school. This addresses our elite, higher achievers to allow them to progress and shine.
Within our school’s curriculum passport, our children have some unique, memorable experiences supporting their Physical Education, such as: climbing a local fell in the Lake District, creating a group dance for our annual Sports Week’s opening ceremony, learn to become a play leader by encouraging others and use our Design Technology space to prepare a healthy meal and enjoy it with friends.
Finally, we endeavour to utilise the delivery of PE to better prepare our children for their ongoing educational journey by providing regular opportunities within sequences of lessons for: self-assessment, peer-assessment, planning, communicating, negotiating, participating and competing against each other to contribute towards their House team!
Ultimately, we want out children to remember their PE journey with us and to leave us feeling proud to have belonged to our team.
