At Park Hall Junior Academy, we like to be active!
Our intent is to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical education and in developing life skills that supports their life-long health and fitness.
We also seek to give children opportunities to compete in competitive sport which will enable them to learn how to cooperate and collaborate with others, as part of a team.
Through Physical Education, our aim is to build resilience and help to embed values of fairness and respect.
To achieve this, at Park Hall Junior Academy, we ensure that our PE curriculum is progressive and allows children to develop fundamental skills and apply them to a variety of different sports and activities. Children are provided with the necessary skills to analyse their own and others performance and identify strengths and areas for improvement.
Our children understand how to lead a healthy lifestyle and understand the benefits of regular exercise.
We equip our children with the necessary skills and a love for sport which becomes part of their future life outside of primary school. We know that good mental health is integral to pupils’ development and for their progression throughout school in general.
Festivals and competitions ensure all of our children have the opportunity to take part in a range of sports both in and outside of school whether that be at a competitive or non-competitive level. We share sporting achievements both in and out of school in Celebration Assembly, so that we are promoting sports and activities, as well as celebrating all levels of success.
We aim for all KS2 pupils to leave school with the skills to competently swim at least 25m and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
We measure the impact of our curriculum through the following methods:
