Physical Education

At Camp Hill, we will give every pupil a broad and balanced P.E. curriculum that promotes diversity and inclusion in order to reach the following objectives:

Children to leave Camp Hill with a positive relationship to physical health, activity and personal wellbeing

Children to use physical education at Camp Hill to develop their first-hand experiences of competition, including: fair play, sportsmanship, team work, passion and playing within the rules.

Children to have a sound knowledge of the basic skills needed to access specific sports and activities.

Children to use physical education at Camp Hill to develop themselves as a whole person - mentally, personally, physically and socially.

Camp Hill provide an hour timetabled lesson each week for every pupil, allowing pupils to develop themselves as a whole person, build a sound knowledge of basic skills, develop the values of the school and to build a positive relationship with physical health. 

In Key Stage 1, pupils should be taught to:

  • Master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities
  • Participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending
  • Perform dances using simple movement patterns.

In Key Stage 2, pupils should be taught to:

  • Use running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination
  • Play competitive games, modified where appropriate [for example, badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders and tennis], and apply basic principles suitable for attacking and defending
  • Develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance [for example, through athletics and gymnastics]
  • Perform dances using a range of movement patterns
  • Take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team
  • Compare their performances with previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best.
