 Physical Education Policy (UPDATED 2017 development ongoing REVIEW Date 2019)
The school believes that Physical Education experienced in a safe and supportive environment is a vital element in a pupil’s physical and emotional development. High quality Physical Education also promotes pupil health and contributes to our whole school ethos. Physical Education is the only subject in the National Curriculum concerned with the physical well-being of the child and also contributes significantly to the personal, cognitive, creative and social child. As such, it is important that all children are given a broad and balanced Physical Education curriculum in school; access to a range of extra- curricular activities and competitive experiences and that pathways are provided into club and community settings for sustained engagement. We believe that Physical Education and School Sport can have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.
The Curriculum
The curriculum is designed to provide equality of access and opportunity for each individual irrespective of ability, experience, cultural background, interests or gender. The Physical Education curriculum aims to provide for pupils’ increasing self-confidence through an ability to manage themselves and problem solve successfully in a variety of situations.
A balance of individual, team, cooperative and competitive activities aim to cater for all individual needs and abilities. The scheme of work is based on progressive learning objectives which, combined with varied and flexible teaching styles, endeavours to provide an appropriate, stimulating, challenging and enjoyable learning environment for all pupils.
To aid our children’s physical development and fitness, building stamina, suppleness and strength.

Requirements.Our curriculum offers pupils a broad and balanced programme using Schemes of Work developed from a range of resources.

An SSCO provides curriculum support for staff to aid, develop and sustain the delivery of high quality Physical Education. The school has access to further INSET through the local School Sports Partnership. 
Continuity and Progression 
The curriculum promotes physical development, knowledge and understanding in the Early Years Foundation Stage and at Key Stage 1 & 2, through activity areas in line with the National Curriculum: 

  Dance
  Gymnastics
  Games/ Athletics
  Swimming (KS2 only)
  Outdoor and adventurous activities 

There will be a progression from Reception to Year 6 as outlined in our curriculum planning documents in the appendix.
We recognise that our pupils are at different levels in their skill and knowledge development. Differentiation is achieved by providing practical tasks which allow children to succeed according to their individual ability. We incorporate the use of the BAGA award scheme in to our lessons in Gymnastics in a bid to standardise the assessment possibilities. 
We seek to explore cross curricular opportunities whenever possible. Health and Safety
  Teachers establish codes of practise and rules in line with Stockport Council guidance.
  All children must be suitably dressed

 earrings removed and no other jewellery worn

 long hair should be tied back
  It is essential to ensure that pupils have the necessary strength and skills to undertake 
  Fixed and portable equipment is inspected annually by an outside approved agency.
  Apparatus should be properly set up, stable, well spaced and checked by teachers before use.

We offer an extensive range of extra-curricular opportunities for all pupils. We aim to offer all children the opportunity to:-

Sports Premium:

At Tithe Barn Primary School we pride ourselves on having a strong tradition of taking an active part in sports competitions. We run a wide range of after-school activities, offering opportunities for children to participate in a variety of sports throughout the year. This is in addition to a full programme of dance, gymnastics, games and swimming through class PE/Games lessons.

What is the ‘Sport Premium’ and how will it help us achieve our goals?

In April 2013 the Government announced new funding of £150 million for the Physical Education (PE) and Sport – often referred to as a ‘Sport Premium’. This funding is to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision. When asked about the ‘Sport Premium’ at its launch, Lord Coe reflected: ‘When I stood up in Singapore in 2005, I spoke of London’s vision to connect young people with the inspirational power of the Games so they are inspired to choose sport. By focusing on primary schools, we have the opportunity to use sport and physical activity to shape the daily lives of young people. I know from my own experience what an impact teachers and their engagement can have on the lives of young people.’ (Lord Coe)
