Grange Infants aims to provide high quality physical education and sport provision that develops the knowledge and skills necessary for social, emotional and physical well-being in all our children now and for their future. It is our vision for every pupil to work hard, show resilience and succeed as well as to lead physically active lifestyles. Our intent is to provide an inclusive, broad and balanced PE curriculum that ensures ALL children will benefit, whether through enhancing existing skills, learning new skills or being introduced to new sports and after school clubs.
Children at Grange participate in twice-weekly inclusive, high quality and active PE and sporting activities. Our PE programme incorporates a variety of skills to ensure all children develop the confidence, tolerance and appreciation of their own and others’ strengths and weaknesses. We provide opportunities for all children to engage in extra-curricular activities after school and a ‘daily mile’ brain break during the school day to promote physical health and well-being. The Complete PE interactive planning and assessment resource supports high quality teaching and learning across all key stages, meeting the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage and National Curriculum. A specialist PE teacher is also used weekly for CPD of staff, giving them the skills and confidence to teach effective lessons.
Our inclusive and well-planned PE curriculum will impact greatly on our children’s ability to acquire the knowledge, skills and understanding needed to make appropriate choices about their physical and mental health. The well-being of all children at Grange will be nurtured not only through the physical skills taught, but through the underpinning values our PE promotes. Our impact is therefore to motivate children to utilise these underpinning skills such as fairness and respect in an independent and effective way in order to live happy and healthy lives within School and the wider community
