We follow the School Curriculum set out by the Department for Education

KS1

Teaching should ensure that when 'evaluating and improving performance', connections are made between 'developing, selecting and applying skills, tactics and compositional ideas', and 'fitness and health'.

During Key Stage 1 pupils build on their natural enthusiasm for movement, using it to explore and learn about their world. They start to work and play with other pupils in pairs and small groups. By watching, listening and experimenting, they develop their skills in movement and coordination, and enjoy expressing and testing themselves in a variety of situations.

During Physical Education they acquire and develop skills, selecting and apply skills, tactics and compositional ideas, evaluating and improve performance and develop knowledge and understanding of fitness and health.  These elements are covered through the following areas: dance activities, games activities, gymnastic activities, swimming activities and water safety.

KS2

Teaching should ensure that when 'evaluating and improving performance', connections are made between 'developing, selecting and applying skills, tactics and compositional ideas', and 'fitness and health'.

During Key Stage 2 pupils enjoy being active and using their creativity and imagination in physical activity. They learn new skills, find out how to use them in different ways, and link them to make actions, phrases and sequences of movement. They enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They develop an understanding of how to succeed in different activities and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success. 

During Physical Education they acquire and develop skills, selecting and apply skills, tactics and compositional ideas, evaluating and improve performance and develop knowledge and understanding of fitness and health.  These elements are covered through the following areas: dance activities, games activities, gymnastic activities, swimming activities and water safety, athletic activities and outdoor and adventurous activities.

We use the Val Sabin scheme of work to cover the above most of the above.  In Key Stage Two external providers cover games activities.
