At Kirkby Woodhouse School, we strive to create a culture which aims to inspire an active generation to enjoy Physical Education, encourage each other, and achieve. We PROVIDE a safe and supportive environment for children to flourish in different physical activities, which is essential in supporting their physical, emotional, social and moral development. Our PE curriculum, along with the pupils’ participation in daily physical activity such as the active mile, gives the children the tools and understanding required to make a positive impact in their own physical health and well-being, as well as embedding life-long values such as co-operation, collaboration, fairness, and respect. Great emphasis in put upon the honing and refining of core athletic skills that are transferable across many different sporting disciplines. There is also focus on upon peer coaching, evaluation and officiating within lessons to further develop these life-long values. We ENHANCE learning experiences with the support of skilled coaches and specialists. They work alongside teachers to ensure that our pupils are provided with high-quality teaching and, in turn, are given ample opportunity to ‘find their ladder’ by engaging in a broad range of sports and physical activities. Our curriculum ENRICHES learning experiences through our established residential program, which runs from Year 1 - Year 6, as well as our extra-curricular offering, which gives pupils of Kirkby Woodhouse School further opportunity to engage in sporting clubs and competitions. Through self-regulation and self- evaluation, through competition and challenge in P.E, children will be aspirational. They will be equipped with knowledge and skills, achieve well, attain high and go BEyond expectations.
If you visited any P.E. lesson taught in our school, you would expect to find teachers and providers using AfL to help them enhance pupil skills progression and overall success in lessons. Beyond this, teachers use their knowledge and understanding of each pupil to make an overall assessed judgement as to whether they are below, at or beyond age-related expectations at the end of the academic year. This information is then published for parents in each child's annual report.
