At Batley Parish we pride ourselves on the quality and diversity of the PE learning on offer to our pupils. We aim to provide every child with a fun and challenging PE experience.

 We aim to provide a well-balanced curriculum which covers the statutory requirements of the PE National Curriculum 2014.

In the Early years Foundation stage, opportunities are provided for children to  be active and to develop their co-ordination, control and movement through moving and handling activities via the continuous outdoor provision and also they receive 1hour of PE a week.  Reception children also receive a 1 hour structured P.E. lesson to further enhance their physical development, as well as continuous outdoor provision.

Pupils in both KS1 and KS2 engage in the minimum of two hours of high quality PE during the course of each week.

In KS1 the curriculum focuses on fundamental movement skills to develop agility, balance and co-ordination. Curriculum content includes ball skills and team games, gymnastic and dance activities.

At KS2 pupils continue to apply and develop a range of skills and units of work including a range of invasion, net / wall, and fielding and striking games, gymnastics, dance, athletics and swimming in Year 5 and 6. We also enrich children’s experiences through opportunities for outdoor and adventurous activities and a range of Inter-House sporting competitions throughout the year.

We believe that through the variety of opportunities that PE offers, children can develop a sense of personal achievement, fair play and teamwork. We plan a range of activities that encourages children to develop their creative and expressive abilities, through improvisation and problem-solving. They are taught to appreciate the importance of a healthy and fit body, and begin to understand those factors which affect health and fitness.

All children are encouraged to join clubs and extend their interest and involvement in sport.
