At Hunningley Primary Academy, we strive to create a culture both around school and the wider community, that aims to inspire an active generation to enjoy PE, encourage each other and achieve. As a school, we provide a safe and supportive environment for children to flourish in a range of different physical activities which is essential in supporting their physical, emotional, social and moral development. We have implemented a high-quality, inclusive curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel across all areas of physical education, competitive sport, and other physically demanding activities. It is rich, varied, imaginative and ambitious and meets the needs of individual learners but can easily be adapted for pupils with additional needs. Through regular formative and summative assessment, tasks are matched to the ability of each child through differentiated activities, providing a level of challenge that is stimulating for pupils.
Our approach to the Physical Education Curriculum is that it is specifically timetabled into our school day to ensure depth and rigour of the key vertical concepts. As a school, we have outlined the progression of all children throughout their time within primary education and the further development when the children progress into secondary education by identifying and implementing the links to Key Stage 3. The key concepts, principles and themes from the National Curriculum have been developed into a range of progressive skills through which the children are helped to grow and develop to succeed within both school and the outside world. This skill-based curriculum allows a creative way of teaching and learning, enabling us to deliver a more practical and engaging curriculum, which meets both the academic and pastoral needs of all our pupils.
At Hunningley Primary Academy, we have developed an all-inclusive range of sporting opportunities, in school and in extra-curricular groups such as: football, rounders and multi-sports, that offer the children a wide-variety opportunities of to access sports that they may not have access to outside of school time. The PE curriculum at Hunningley Primary School provides children with a relevant, coherent, progressive knowledge of the fundamental movements, skills and the further links to health and well-being. These are explored through the lenses of our school’s ‘vertical concepts’:
