Physical Education and Sport at The Bishops’
PE and Sport form an integral part of our school life both within the curriculum and beyond. We want to teach children the importance of a healthy, active lifestyle and the benefits that it can bring.
The Bishops’ is part of the Newquay School Partnership along with 12 other Primary Schools as well as Newquay Tretherras School and Treviglas College. The majority of the sporting festivals and tournaments that we take part in are organised and run by the 2 secondary schools within the partnership.
We use the ARENA PE programme for teaching PE across the school. This ensures that there is a consistency and clear progression in key skills. Children apply these skills in a variety of team games.
Years 1 to 6 have swimming lessons at Waterworld for a set number of weeks each year with our aim to have every child being able to swim 25m by the time they leave Year 6.
At The Bishops’ we aim to provide a rich and engaging PE curriculum that meets the needs of the children in our community. We believe that active children are happy children. We believe that physical education inspires learners to realise their full potential and develop a lifelong interest in physical activity and sport. We believe children’s academic success runs alongside having an active and healthy lifestyle through daily exercise, taking part in high quality P.E. lessons and extra-curricular activities. Children who are provided with positive experiences of physical education at a primary school are much more likely to lead active and healthy lifestyles later in life.
Physical education is taught through six different strands:
Our PE curriculum, underpinned by the ARENA PE scheme, is inclusive and ensures that pupils of all abilities access the range of activities we offer and that they are physically active for sustained periods of time in order to encourage them to lead healthy, active lives. Children will develop their fundamental movement skills (agility, balance and co-ordination) and take part in increasingly competitive situations against themselves and others. Whilst retaining it’s unique contribution to pupils’ physical development, health and fitness, PE also has considerable potential to contribute to much wider areas of learning in terms of developing the whole child, including the development of physical, social, creative, personal and cognitive skills.
In addition to this extra-curricular clubs enhance the experience of different sports throughout the school. Furthermore, a range of lunchtime activities and participation in intra-school competitions, year group camps and sports day will ensure maximum participation in physical activity outside of the PE curriculum. There are also opportunities for pupils to take on leadership roles in which they can build character and embed values such as fairness, teamwork and respect.
Regular participation in sport and physical activity can help to reduce the risk of health problems, improve physical fitness, help with weight management, promote good health, instil self-discipline, develop skills, improve self-confidence, reduce stress and develop life-long learning skills. This is what we aim to instil in The Bishops’ CofE Learning Academy children – that Physical Education impacts all areas of life.
