At Parkway we believe a high-quality PE curriculum should be an integral part of the whole school curriculum and one that staff and pupils can contribute to. Through weekly PE lessons, our children learn to develop the important qualities of discipline, resilience, communication, teamwork, and ambition.
Our PE curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils develop the fundamental skills and competence to excel in a wide range of physical activities by providing a broad & balanced curriculum with opportunities for all to be enjoyed. We follow the complete P.E scheme. We make sure our P.E curriculum here at Parkway is inclusive and ensures that pupils of all abilities access the range of activities we offer and that they are physically active for sustained periods of time in order to encourage them to lead healthy, active lives. We ensure every child receives a minimum of two hours physical education per week.
We are beginning our programme of intra and inter school competitions which will provide opportunities for pupils to participate in competitive sports and activities both in and beyond the curriculum. This will mean that pupils have the opportunity to participate at all levels of competitive sport.
We aim for our PE curriculum to allow pupils to learn about themselves, the importance of a healthy lifestyle, self-expression and concepts such as fair play and respect. It also contributes to the development of a range of important cognitive skills such as decision making and analysis, and social skills such as teamwork and communication.
‘Developing pupil’s personal qualities through PE can affect their attitudes towards school and learning. When PE provision is of the highest quality, all pupils will, to the best of their abilities, develop and demonstrate the following personal qualities:
A strong desire to learn & make progress;
High levels of dedication, attendance and involvement in PE and school sport;
High levels of commitment to PE;
Good levels of positive behaviour such as politeness, fair play and helpfulness; and
High levels of enjoyment and enthusiasm and a strong desire to get involved.’
