PE

The teaching of PE will enable children to develop their physical literacy. Teachers will ensure that pupils have access to two hours of high quality PE lessons every week which will incorporate a wide variety of activities including; games, gymnastics, athletics, dance, swimming and outdoor activities. As a school we understand that PE education is not just physical but also about an awareness of healthy diet and lifestyle choices such as walking or cycling to school.  
 
PE education at Longford Park Primary School will enable children to develop greater self-esteem and promote the skills of leadership, teamwork, fair play, respect and co-operation.   
 
Curriculum aims
 
During the EYFS stage, children will start their physical literacy learning path. By developing an understanding of how their body moves and by exploring basic agility, balance & coordination skills (ABC’s), they will begin to enjoy PE and sport on their own and with others.  
 
At Key Stage One we aim to build on fundamental movement skills through developing object control, locomotion, and stability (ABC’s) within a variety of activities. Children will become increasingly confident movers and will begin to foster an enjoyment of PE.  
 
Throughout Key Stage Two children will be encouraged to use the movement skills established in Key Stage One to develop fundamental sports skills. Children will link basic movements with those needed to develop the techniques which will enable them to participate in a range of activities including; games, gym, dance, athletics and outdoor education. 
 
At Longford Park we always aim to encourage independent learning as well as cooperative team work. Children will be involved in a process of self-assessment, ensuring that they are aware of the progress that they are making and what their individual next step will be.  
 
We are also part of the North Oxfordshire School Sports Partnership (NOSSP) where our children take part in local inter-school sporting events. Once we have Key Stage 2, we will aim to achieve the School Games Mark.
