PE Curriculum

Countess Anne School Curriculum: Physical Education

At Countess Anne Physical Education is taught on a twice per week basis with the programmes of study being covered via a core of sports and recreational activities.

We aim through our teaching of physical education:

ü      To provide pupils with the opportunity to become proficient at a range of sports.

ü      To help pupils see sport as a fun and creative way of staying healthy and safe.

ü      To ensure that pupils are prepared with the life skills of cycling and swimming.

ü      To provide an opportunity for pupils to develop the Olympic Values of respect, excellence and friendship.

 

The core of what we offer at Countess Anne is timetabled below, however this is supplemented by our extended learning opportunities programme and by our residential programme, which includes visits to Cuffley Camp, Snowdonia and theLake District.

 

EYP (Years Reception and 1):

The PE curriculum for our youngest children is provided through planned activities and child initiated play within the setting’s outdoor classroom and playground. Learning focuses mainly on the gross motor skills of balance, catching and throwing, and encourages playing together. In the Summer Term children from EYP use our school Learner Swimming Pool and have the opportunity to develop their water confidence. At the end of the summer term pupils join with rest of the school and take part in our annual Family Fun Run and Sports Fun Day. All of which is supplemented by sports enrichments activities which form part of our after school enrichment programme and is available to pupils from EYP.
