About this curriculum

With our vision centered on inclusivity, we are committed to providing an environment where every child—regardless of skill level, background, or ability—can participate, compete, and most importantly, enjoy physical activity.

Our accomplishments this year underscore our commitment to excellence in this area. We are extremely proud to have achieved the GOLD level in the School Games Mark award, a national accolade that recognizes our ongoing commitment to the development of competition across schools and into the community. This honor is a testament to the range of opportunities we offer, from intramural games to interschool competitions, enabling our students to experience the joy and excitement of competition while also learning valuable lessons in sportsmanship and teamwork.

In addition to this, we have been awarded the PLATINUM level in the PSSP (Plymouth School Sports Partnership) award, another significant recognition that highlights our efforts in creating a high-quality, inclusive physical education curriculum. Achieving the platinum level demonstrates that we consistently offer a diverse array of activities and sports, ensuring that there's something for everyone, be it team sports, individual activities, or fitness-based challenges.

Intent

At Widey Court, we aim for all children to participate in and enjoy physical education and competitive sport. We provide opportunities for children to learn a range of individual and team games, as well as fundamental movement skills to promote confidence alongside their growing ability. We promote a love for sport, a respect for others and we help children to become excellent sportsmen and women. We hope that children will leave Widey Court with the knowledge to lead active, healthy lives.

Widey Court Primary School are part of the Plymouth Schools Sports Partnership whose vision is…

“…to create a sustainable PE, School Sport and Physical Activity system as part of the health and wellbeing provision for all children and young people. Our mission is to positively impact on the lives of every child and young person attending Partnership schools and their parents/carers through the opportunities that we provide to help them achieve more in life and at school. We promote the Olympic and Paralympic values of Friendship, Respect, Excellence, Determination, Inspiration, Courage and Equality.”

We are also part of the Real PE Legacy to transform PE experiences for every child, teacher and family. For us, Real PE is a unique, child-centred approach that transforms how we teach PE to include challenge and support for every child. Real PE believe we should be…

"…Creating positive relationships with physical activity for life for every child."

Implementation

At Widey Court, PE follows the National Curriculum. We ensure that every child learns, develops and masters the fundamental movement skills - agility, balance and coordination. We do this through a combination of indoor and outdoor lessons, teaching our key sports - gymnastics, dance, bat and ball, hockey, netball and athletics. Objectives are met through teaching knowledge of their bodies and sports (both individual and team), as well as tactics and teamwork. The lessons build over a term and each unit ends with either an intra-school competition or performance. Children are given the opportunity to self / peer-evaluate performances, giving both positive and constructive feedback. The skills are reviewed each year, where they progress and are refined, so they leave primary school with confidence in their own skills and a desire to play a variety of sports. We ensure that all children are taught how to swim over a distance of at least 25m, how to use a range of strokes effectively and to perform safe self-rescue. Alongside the National Curriculum objectives, we teach life skills like sportsmanship, resilience, determination and inclusion. These are referred to in all PE lessons, extra-curricular clubs and at events.

Widey Court are part of the School Games network and as such are…

“…part of a national project that aims to get more young people participating and engaged in sports and competition. As part of our sports programme, the PSSP run School Games events at regular intervals in the academic year to enable our young people to engage in various levels of competition.”

Impact

At Widey Court, we expect all children to demonstrate their skills and knowledge during lessons. This will be evident in intra-school and inter-school competitions, as well as during child interviews and lesson observations. We hope that our curriculum will provide children with a breadth of knowledge and an opportunity to develop life-long skills; promote a healthy lifestyle and a love for physical activity.

Extra-curricular Links

At Widey Court, we aim to provide extra-curricular activities for every child. We do this by offering a plethora of clubs for all age groups. These are either run by staff, volunteers or external agencies.

We aim for every child to represent the school at an event or competition throughout their primary school journey.

This afternoon was a truly magical experience for the Service children from Years 1 & 2 with a visit from Mildred Tumbleweed!! She was sent by the Elf King to recruit some Elf Apprentices to do kind things in the human world. The session started with a call from the Elf King to make sure that Mildred Tumbleweed was in the right school! The children then had a lovely story, The Elves & The Shoemaker - all about kindness. They then decorated slippers for their loved ones. The Elf Apprentices then made their own potions which all went into a big cauldron to make a spell! With the magic words "Bibbidi bobbidi boo" and their special wands they made a spell strong enough to make a fairy door for the school! To go with the door we also have a special fairy house and a little well for wishes. Thank you so much to Mildred Tumbleweed and for MKC Heroes for this magical afternoon and to Mrs Maiden and Mrs Dawes for organising this session. ⭐️⭐️⭐️MKC Heroes

The EYFS children celebrated National Sunflower Day today where they learnt about the importance of caring for plants. They all came to school wearing something yellow and enjoyed lots of sunflower themed activities! They each planted a sunflower seed and will continue to care for them throughout the rest of the summer term 🌻. We will be creating posters this week to remember what plants need to grow. ☀️ 🌧️ We can't wait to see how tall they get! 🌻
