At Rockcliffe CE School, we teach all children at least two hours of Physical Education per week across the school, following the programme of study outlined in the National Curriculum and Early Years Framework. Lessons are planned following the progression grid created by the curriculum leader, which outlines the knowledge, skills and vocabulary from EY to Year 6. This is designed to build on prior knowledge to support children to be successful across the age ranges..
PE lessons follow a clear, comprehensive and progressive scheme in line with the National Curriculum. Teaching and learning shows progression across the four strands of PE we teach: games, dance, athletics and gymnastics. A sports specialists delivers PE lessons across the school during the year to provide CPD for staff and reduce teacher workload. Inter and intra sporting events take place across the year to provide children with opportunities to participate in competitive events.
Swimming is taught across the whole school year.
Our children understand the importance of PE and the importance of living a healthy lifestyle and how this can be achieved. Children will achieve age related expectations by the end of each year group, through high quality teaching and consistency.
