PE is taught both inside and outside in whole class groups by class teachers.

How is the subject assessed/marked?

The assessment tool within our Power of PE scheme of work is used to keep a record of targets achieved during and at the end of each unit of work being taught. Class teachers also use their own evidence from the lessons that they teach. At the end of each unit, teachers assess pupils attainment, identifying pupils Working Towards ARE, Working at ARE and Working at Greater Depth.

Short term planning is adapted from Power of PE scheme of work and if necessary annotated by class teachers when they deliver their lessons.

A long term plan is sent out to all staff detailing what they need to teach.

Photographs of pupils engaging in a range of sports are displayed around school. In the school hall, there is also a progression in P.E. display which showcases pupil achievements in a range of sports.

Resourcing (What/Where is it stored?)

A wide range of equipment to teach all sports is kept in the PE cupboard in the hall.

What homework is set?

Afterschool sports clubs and competitions are offered throughout the year.

Cross Curricular Learning

Teachers link their theme to P.E. lessons. For example, when learning about the Romans in History, Year 4 practise a range of training exercises, combining their historical knowledge with P.E. skills.
