Intent:

At The Arches we aim to develop the knowledge, skills and capabilities necessary for social, emotional, mental and physical wellbeing in our children now and for their future. At the Arches we want to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the development of every child’s ability. At the Arches physical fitness is an important part of leading a healthier lifestyle. It teaches self-discipline and that to be successful you must work hard, show resilience and have determination to believe that anything can be achieved. At the Arches we aim to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical activities. We want to encourage competiveness, cooperation and collaboration.

Implementation:

At the Arches most children will take part in at least 2 hours of PE a week. By using lesson plans provided by PE Passport our lessons incorporate a variety of sports to ensure all children develop the confidence, tolerance and the appreciation of their own and others’ strengths and weaknesses. We provide opportunities for children to attend after school clubs; in addition we have a wide calendar of competitive sporting events that we take part in. We also employ two PE specialists to enhance the high-quality teaching and learning.

Impact:

At the Arches our impact will be measured through the assessments using PE Passport. We aim to teach children about self-discipline and that to be successful you need to take responsibility for your own fitness and wellbeing. We want children to enjoy sport and for each and every child to fulfil their own potential.

At The Arches, all children take part in P.E at least twice a week. This educates young people in the use and knowledge of the body, and its movement, and helps promote a positive competitive attitude. 

P.E can develop the skills and competence required to participate in worthwhile physical activities. It promotes growth and physical development, establishing positive attitudes towards health and exercise. 

Throughout the year, children will have the opportunity to take part in football, tag rugby, basketball, indoor athlectics, netball, kwik cricket, tennis and rounders. Year 3 and Year 4 will also learn uni-hoc and dodgeball.

Our KS2 children also have the opportunity to go swimming and require a swimming cap. By the end of Year 6 all children are expected to be able to swim 25 metres.

Some children will be selected to take part in mini-kickers, football, tag rugby, basketball, indoor athlectics, netball, kwik cricket, tennis and rounders tournaments. Year 3 and 4 will also take part in uni-hoc and dodgeball tournaments. These tournaments usually take place after school, and children will be driven to these competitions by staff members.

Children's progress will be assesed and monitored through PE Passport.

Children should have a plain white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps in their P.E kit, which should be in school all week. This is part of our school uniform and should be adhered to in the same way as day to day uniform. Tracksuits, football kits or any other clothing is not acceptable. 

All jewellery has to be removed before taking part in any physical education activity.
