Physical Education

At Castlecombe we have a very positive approach to PE and aim to promote an enjoyable experience, accessible to all pupils. We recognise that PE can help children develop their co-ordination, fitness and a sense of fair play. PE is based on the multi-skills approach to learning, combined with opportunities for competition in accordance with the National Curriculum.

We follow the Department for Education' s National Curriculum programmes of study for Key Stages 1 and 2, details of which are published on the DfE's website:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-curriculum-in-england-physical-education-programmes-of-study

Children have two sessions of PE a week, giving the required total of 2 Hours. In addition, some classes follow the Activate programme giving an additional 10 minute daily exercise routine.

A proportion of our PE premium has been used to engage a PE facilitator, supporting PE lessons, organising teams for competition and helping teachers meet their training needs. In addition we have close links with external providers, such as 7oaks Multi-sports and Cray Wanderers.

Year 5 go swimming at a local sports centre in the Autumn Term.
