PE

At Summercourt Academy we believe that Physical Education is so important in the development of children’s physical, social and leadership skills, enabling each child to excel across the wider curriculum. We believe we can capture children’s interest and enjoyment of PE at an early age, providing outstanding PE lessons, helping to lay the foundations for our children to develop healthy and active lifestyles in the long term.

Alongside this we value the importance of children developing their swimming skills and ability. We provide swimming opportunities from Year 1 through to year 6 using qualified swimming instructors. Our aim is to provide structured swimming lessons in order to develop confident and competent swimmers, able to meet the National standards.

We provide the children with at least two hours of fun, exciting and active PE lessons every week, taught by both the class teacher and Mrs Norton (our PE specialist).

Our PE activities are planned to encourage the children to develop a positive attitude towards keeping fit and healthy, providing opportunities for them to participate in team activities and to develop their skills through a range of physical activities. All lessons provide a progressive PE curriculum, differentiated appropriately to accelerate children’s physical skills and provide challenges to all abilities.

To see how PE is being taught throughout the school, take a look at our year group class pages and their curriculum coverage maps.
