Physical Education

Through our PE curriculum, children will develop physically, socially, emotionally and creatively. They will have good physical literacy to be able to lead a healthy, active lifestyle.

At Lacey Green Primary Academy, children will:

  • aspire to achieve personal and shared goals
  • develop key leaderships skills
  • work as a team
  • solve problems
  • understand the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle
  • develop a sense of fair play and team spirit

whilst continuing to maintain a love for sport and physical education.

At Lacey Green we follow the National Curriculum, but have a carefully planned sequence of learning through an app called PE Passport. Units are planned to ensure all pupils receive a variety of experiences, building on and consolidating skills. There is clear progression as children move throughout the school.

Children demonstrate important sporting values such as, cooperation, respect, determination and courage

Physical Education in Early Years

Children in Early years are taught by the class teacher once a week. Children develop their fine motor skills to handle and share resources.  Gross motor skills are developed throughout continuous provision daily. Children become more independent with self-care, hygiene and begin to understand the importance of being healthy.

 

Physical Education in KS1

Children in Early Years and KS1 are taught by the class teacher, twice a week. Children develop fundamental skills, including motor skills, balance skills and ball control. Children learn these skills through the enjoyment of dance, gymnastics, invasion games, target games and net and wall games.

Physical Education in KS2

Children are taught by a specialist P.E. teacher from Wilmslow High School once a week, and their own class teacher once a week. Children continue to develop key fundamental skills, focusing more specifically on individual sports such as tag rugby, cricket, tennis, dodgeball, and hockey.
