Sheerness West Federation

Physical Education

At Sheerness West Federation a positive attitude and self-belief is vital to achieving goals and prospering to be independent in their own learning.

Within the PE curriculum there is particular emphasis on the development of a wide range of skills, including motor skills, hand eye coordination and teamwork. All these fundamental skills are taken from experiencing a wealth of sports activities not just within their PE lessons but also within healthy competition.

Here at SWF we promote healthy competition across the school and encourage and support when others prosper, therefore resulting in good sportsmanship. We urge children to make informed decisions independently about how to apply skills learnt into game scenarios. The children are supported to aspire to local sporting heroes and worldwide sporting competitors as well as celebrate each other’s successes and achievements within the school community. It is our aim for all children at SWF to compete and represent the school in either sporting or a creative event at some point in their career.

We also have opportunities for children to develop, explore and share their creativity through all aspects of physical education for example; through designing their own dance and gymnastic sequences. Skills in working collaboratively are achieved in improvisation within group tasks and through team sports both within the lesson and within our school representative teams in the wider community.

Another aim of ours is to see our children through their cycling proficiency to ensure they are safe when cycling to and from school and when they are out in the wider community. It is required for all children to be able to swim at least 25meters and is therefore a whole school aim to see our children reach this target by the time they leave SWF.

Our staff within SWF effectively differentiate to enable all children to excel no matter what their sporting capabilities are. It allows them to discover their own gifts and talents across the Physical Education curriculum.

Children at SWF receive two hours of PE (1 indoor and 1 outdoor) and the option to attend a variety of after school sports clubs throughout the week.
