Higham Primary School believes that Physical Education (PE) is essential to ensure children attain optimum physical and emotional development and good health. We intend to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical education and in developing life skills. Our curriculum aims to improve the wellbeing and fitness of all children at Higham, not only through the sporting skills taught, but through the underpinning values and disciplines that PE promotes. Our scheme of work ensures that our children have a varied and well-mapped out curriculum and provides progression across the full breadth of the Early Years Foundation Stage and the PE National Curriculum for KS1 and KS2. In KS1, the focus is very much on the development of the fundamental skills, which are then built upon in KS2 and applied to specific sports. It is our intention to develop a lifelong love of physical activity, sport and PE and ensure a positive and healthy physical outlook in the future.
At Higham, we will help children to be motivated to participate in a variety of sports through quality teaching that is engaging and fun. From our carefully designed lessons, our children learn to take responsibility for their own health and fitness, enjoy the success of competitive sport and develop detailed knowledge and skills across the full breadth of the PE curriculum. Some of our units (especially dance) are often themed with strong cross-curricular links to other subjects or topics such as Romans or robots; this helps to make the learning memorable and ultimately creating a higher level of engagement and understanding. We will equip our children with the necessary skills and a love for sport so they will hopefully grow up to live happy and healthy lives, utilising the skills and knowledge acquired through PE lessons.
