“Intelligence and skill can only function at the peak of their capacity when the body is healthy and strong.”
John F. Kennedy
At Tang Hall Primary School we provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Our PE curriculum is designed to allow pupils to become accomplished sportspeople through building character, fairness and respect. We encourage children to compete in a wide range of sporting fixtures throughout the year, visit sporting events and take part in a range of after school clubs. At Tang Hall, we provide opportunities for children to take part in a broad range of physical activities and understand the importance of leading healthy and active lifestyles.
We have designed a progression of skills to allow our pupils to become proficient in:
- Ball skills
- Striking and Fielding
- Outdoor Adventurous Activities
- Health Related Exercise
- Water Safety
Our entire curriculum, including Art, promotes opportunities to be Challenged, build Resilience, experience Enrichment and explore the wider World (#CREW).
Stakeholders have identified that our pupils lack confidence and life experiences. To ensure our pupils all reach their full potential, we have designed our PE curriculum with a focus on these specific barriers which include:
- Building confidence, stamina and independence
- Developing oracy and extending vocabulary
- Knowledge beyond their immediate locality
