Welcome to our PE curriculum page.
Our intent statement
At Belle Vue Primary School, we strive to make every single child feel part of our team, linking this to our PE motto of ‘Together, Everyone Achieves More’. We believe the delivery of high-quality PE sessions plays 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 and emotional skills simultaneously.
Through effective delivery of a wide range of sports, from swimming to netball, gymnastics to dance, volleyball to athletics our staff address the essential skills needed for each individual sporting area built upon from reception through to the end of their Year 6 journey using our skills progression map. Our skills progression map allows for effective differentiation and for the teacher to make decisions regarding the skills taught and how to develop them for each individual child.
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 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.
