At Healdswood Infant & Nursery School, we recognise the integral part that PE plays in promoting, healthy lifestyles. Our broad, balanced and engaging PE curriculum tries to ensure that all children have a lifelong participation and an embedded love of sports. It is our vision for every pupil to succeed and achieve their potential as well as to lead physically active lifestyles. This approach is achieved through the use of Real PE, which is taught from EYFS to the end of Key Stage 1. REAL PE focuses on developing children’s agility, balance and coordination, promotion of healthy competition and cooperative learning.
PE is taught at Healdswood Infant & Nursery School as an area of learning in its own right as well as integrated where possible with other curriculum subjects. Every class participate in weekly PE Sessions which are adapted from the ‘Real PE’ schemes of learning by Create Development. The schemes of learning is inclusive and progressive and fully aligned to the National Curriculum. These lessons focus on the development of key fundamental skills:
This scheme also shifts responsibility of learning, through highly developed learning behaviours, towards the children, supporting them to become habitually independent learners These include their creative, cognitive, social, personal, physical and health and fitness skills.
