At Stalmine Primary School, we aim to develop pupils’ ability to acquire new knowledge and skills through a high quality and progressive Physical Education curriculum. We see Physical Education as a vital part of a child’s education and we aim to provide our pupils with opportunities to become physically confident in order to promote a healthy, active lifestyle.
At Stalmine Primary School, PE is taught using the PE Primary Passport Framework which is in-line with the National Curriculum. This resource supports teachers with their subject knowledge and delivery of PE and allows them the flexibility to adapt and modify lessons to suit the needs of their individual classes. Lessons are progressive and build upon previous skills taught which allows pupils to practice new knowledge and skills in a variety of ways.
Through our curriculum, we aim to inspire pupils with active learning outside the classroom in sport where they develop skills such as communication, teamwork, collaboration, cooperation and respect. It is our aim to instill in our pupils a life-long love of physical activity, sport and exercise embedding life-long values such as co-operation, collaboration and equity of play. PE is an integral part of school practice and allows pupils to develop knowledge, skills and vocabulary as well as developing values and transferable life-skills such as fair play, honest competition and good sporting behaviour as individual participants, team members and spectators..
With Stalmine being so close the coast and to the River Wyre, swimming is a vital skill. We provide opportunities for children to learn how to stay safe by starting swimming lessons in EYFS (Class 1) and continuing until children have become confident in the water, knowing how to keep safe and also meet the National Curriculum requirements of swimming 25m by the end of Year 6. Due to Coronavirus and a break in access to swimming lessons, for the academic year 2021-22, the focus will be on providing KS2 pupils swimming lessons to ensure they leave Stalmine school competent and confident swimmers.
Health and Well-being
Our PE Curriculum, along with PSHE and science, teaches children about the importance of healthy living and learning about the need for good nutrition. At Stalmine we aim for children to develop the necessary knowledge and skills which will have a positive impact on their future by becoming physically active citizens to benefit their long-term health and well-being.
Outdoor Education Curriculum
We have a forest school area to support the teaching of outdoor activities, such as group and individual challenges. All pupils in KS2 have the opportunity to attend a residential trip and all Year 6 pupils attend at least one fully funded outdoor activity day.
