Physical Education

PE is delivered through the National Curriculum, focussing not solely only on individual sports; but about the personal and social development of our pupils
through physical activities. Redefining what is possible for PE, Sport and Physical Activity through a new positive and inclusive culture.

We encourage or pupils to draw on skills already learnt from other areas of the curriculum such as problem solving; teamwork; communication and leadership. We aim to solidify, build on these skills and use them in their other lessons.

We aim to provide the opportunity for all pupils to become physically confident and successful learners so they can transfer skills into life beyond Collingwood, building honest, respectful and resilient young people with skills in leadership, problem-solving, risk assessing and personal and social responsibility while upholding the schools values in victory, heroism and humanity.

PE Curriculum Overview

PE in Primary

We follow Jasmine’s Real PE. Jasmine’s Real PE aims to create positive relationships with physical activity for life using a unique, child centred approach to teaching the subject.

In P.E. for Key Stages 1 and 2 the following aspects of P.E. are covered with the support of Jasmine’s Real PE holistic approach to ensure children are engaged and developing their skills in a well rounded way.

These include:
Fundamental Movements
Ball Skills
Gymnastics
Dance
Team Games
Athletics

PE in Year 7

Pupils will build upon and embed the fundamental skills learnt in the Primary PE curriculum, to become more competent and confident in their techniques and skills, applying them to different sports, activities and subjects. Focus lies within four key developmental areas: personal, physical, social and thinking.

Pupils will begin to make the shift from teacher lead practice to taking responsibility and ownership of their own learning, assessing their effort levels through the introduction of Rate of Perceived Exertion (RPE), selecting suitable challenges, collaborating with peers to adapt and begin to make better decisions. They will begin to use these skills in a range of sports within athletics, gymnastics and dance, team sports, net and racquet as well as striking and fielding

PE in Year 8

Pupils will build upon the prosocial behaviours they began to look at in year 7. The focus remains on the four key developmental areas: personal, physical, social and thinking. They will have a greater understanding of the high expectations placed upon them and share their thoughts, opinions and reflections with peers to help progress their and their classmates performances and skills.

They will learn to maintain positive attitudes in difficult situations, when working with others they wouldn’t ordinarily chose to work with and while receiving constructive feedback from peers, using this to make better judgements and decisions. They will use these skills in a range of sports within athletics, gymnastics and dance, team sports, net and racquet as well as striking and fielding.

PE in Year 9

Pupils will build upon the personal and social development within the context of physical education already established in year 8. The focus remains on the four key developmental areas: personal, physical, social and thinking.

Students will develop a stronger, deeper work ethic and understanding, with consistency in resilience, respect, determination and skill, while beginning to encourage others to participate, learn and succeed. They will use these skills in a range of sports within athletics, gymnastics and dance, team sports, net and racquet as well as striking and fielding.

PE in Year 10

There is another shift in the focus of PE during Key Stage Four. Focus is on three core areas known as Head (cognitive thinking), Heart (personal and social development) and Hands (fitness, tactics and competition).

The aim is for pupils to recognise their potential. Pupils will not only take responsibility for their own learning but for their peers too as they analyse performances and offer feedback, communicate more confidently both verbally and physically and begin to lead and orgnaise activities. They will be familiar with the use of RPE to guarantee they get out of lessons what they put in.

PE in Year 11

Students will enjoy weekly sessions down at the local leisure centre to become familiar with the facilities and opportunities available to them outside of Collingwood. They will walk to and from the Leisure Centre to not only enhance cardiovascular fitness but to also promote independent travel, preparing them for adult life. They will continue to focus on the three key areas of Head (cognitive thinking), Heart (personal and social development) and Hands (fitness, tactics and competition) with much emphasis being placed on leadership, responsibility and ownership.

They will think tactically, making regular adaptations to games and activities based on the team makeup, intrinsic and extrinsic variables and overcome challenges and problems in collaboration. They will learn to be resilient and take ownership of results and use intrinsic and extrinsic feedback to set goals.
