The planning, teaching and assessment of physical education

is solely the responsibility of the class teacher. PE is monitored by Mr Cara with the support of NPCAT Sport. PE in EYFS PE is taught exactly the same from Nursery all the way to Year 6. At St Pius we use the PE Passport scheme of learning which teaches the children the skills and knowledge they need to be successful not only in sport but in the children’s, adult lives. In early years, children learn to improve and develop their fine motor skills, dance and basic ball skills in which they will progress and improve on during their years at St Pius. PE in Key Stage 1 PE builds on from EYFS by introducing fundamental movement skills in which children apply themselves in different ways such as travelling in different directions and object manipulation which leads to introducing net and wall games and invasion skills.

PE in Key Stage 2

PE introduces invasion games in Key Stage 2. Children have the opportunity to play and officiate in competitive situations which progress in skills and knowledge throughout each academic year. Children also have the opportunity to compete in competitions ran by NPCAT Sport as well as inter school competitions. Children also learn how to orienteer which teaches the children valuable life skills. Swimming lessons are also provided for Key Stage 2 children as they need this valuable life skill. How your child is assessed in PE Assessment takes place each lesson within PE. Children are assessed on skills, social and emotional behaviour and competition. Assessment is based on the Olympic medals structure. Bronze is below expected standard, silver is expected standard, gold is working above and platinum is working towards greater depth. The children are assessed at the end of a unit where a grade is given. These grades are kept within the children’s unique ‘passport’ which is carried with them throughout their time at St Pius and potentially at secondary school.
