At Bracken Leas we believe that it is crucial that every young person has the opportunity to be exposed to PE in order to offer them the opportunity to be inspired and foster a lifelong love and appreciation of sport and exercise.

Thus, allowing the young person to develop a healthy and active lifestyle, and instil skills of teamwork, communication, empathy, how to win and lose and the ability to build relationships with others.

Our aim is to offer a high-quality physical education curriculum which inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. We provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness, as well as opportunities to compete in sport and other activities to build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.

Each week every child, from Year 1 to Year 6, participates in two hourly sessions, with one usually outdoor, and the other indoor.

PE at Foundation and Key Stage 1

Through PE lessons, children should learn how to master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities. They are also expected to participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending, as well as perform dances using simple movement patterns.

To meet these requirement pupils and teachers in Foundation through to Year 2 follow the REAL PE scheme of work. The foundations of the Schemes are based on Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS) of agility, balance and coordination, inclusive competition and broader essential holistic skills. Through the Learning Nutrition programme, integrated assessment and the progressive nature of ‘real PE’,  there is a real focus on evidencing progress, Assessment for Learning (AfL) and a shift of responsibility to create more independent learners.

PE at Key Stage 2

Key Stage 2 Pupils should continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. PE in Key Stage 2 is broken down into two areas.

In one of the two weekly PE lessons, the children and teachers follow the REAL PE scheme of work (see Key Stage 1 PE for more information).  Whilst the other lesson focusses on teaching the core skills of the National Curriculum through dance, games, gymnastics, athletics and swimming.

Swimming

The school provides swimming instruction Years 2 to 6. Sessions are led by a combination of Class Teachers, Teaching Assistants and County Swimming Instructors.

Our aim is that by the end of Key Stage 2 children should:

  • Swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
  • Use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]
  • Perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
