Chiltern Primary School is dedicated to providing a comprehensive and engaging physical education (PE) curriculum that aligns with the 2014 National Curriculum in England. This website statement aims to outline our school's approach to teaching and learning PE, demonstrating our commitment to promoting positive relationships, championing every child, and recognizing the value of physical education in the holistic development of our students.

School Mission Statement: Making Learning Irresistible

At Chiltern Primary School, our mission is to make learning irresistible. We believe that by creating a positive and stimulating learning environment, we can inspire our students to achieve their full potential in all areas of their education, including physical education. Our teachers strive to foster a love for physical activity, emphasizing its importance in maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle.

Prioritizing Positive Relationships

Central to our approach is the cultivation of positive relationships between students, teachers, and the wider school community. We believe that by fostering a nurturing and inclusive environment, students are more likely to feel supported, motivated, and engaged in their learning. In PE, we encourage teamwork, collaboration, and respect, allowing pupils to develop positive and supportive relationships with their classmates.

Championing Each and Every Child

At Chiltern Primary School, we recognize the uniqueness of each child's abilities and interests. Our PE curriculum is designed to be inclusive, providing opportunities for every child to participate and excel. We embrace diversity and believe that every student can contribute their strengths to the collective learning experience. Through a variety of games, sports, and physical activities, we celebrate individual achievements, fostering confidence and self-esteem in all our pupils.

The Power of PE: Teaching the National Curriculum

As advocated by the 2014 National Curriculum in England, we understand that physical education plays a crucial role in promoting physical, social, and emotional wellbeing. PE at Chiltern Primary School extends beyond its contribution to physical fitness; it delivers a wide range of knowledge, skills, and understanding of different sports, games, and activities. We value the breadth of the national curriculum and utilize 'The Power of PE' to engage our students in meaningful and purposeful learning experiences.

Developing the Whole Child

Physical education is instrumental in developing the whole child, encompassing their physical, psychological, and emotional growth. At Chiltern Primary School, we recognize the immense value and importance of this vital subject in shaping a well-rounded individual. Through our PE curriculum, students not only enhance their physical fitness and motor skills but also develop resilience, teamwork abilities, leadership qualities, and a positive mindset. We encourage our students to set personal goals, take on challenges, and celebrate their achievements, all of which contribute to their overall development.

In conclusion, Chiltern Primary School is committed to providing a high-quality PE curriculum aligned with the 2014 National Curriculum in England. We prioritize positive relationships, champion each and every child, utilize 'The Power of PE' to teach the breadth of the national curriculum, and recognize the value of physical education in developing the whole child. By instilling a love for physical activity and fostering a nurturing environment, we aim to empower our students to lead healthy, active, and fulfilling lives.

Aims of our P.E Curriculum

  • Foster a love for and enjoyment of being active.
  • Develop ‘fitness for life’ through promoting the health benefits of regular exercise.
  • Identify talents
  • Develop self-esteem, confidence and social skills.
  • Contribute to the physical development of every child.
  • Give children a way of expressing themselves and an opportunity to be creative.
  • Develop a range of skills that can be applied in other contexts.
  • Give children the opportunity to try out activities that they would not otherwise have access to.
  • Use and apply our school values (six strands) to physical education learning.

At Chiltern Primary School, we use a variety of teaching and learning styles which involve a mixture of whole-class, group and individual physical activities.  Our teachers model good skills and technique and also draw attention to good examples of individual performance to use as models for the other children.
At our school, we follow a scheme of learning for PE that provides a clear scaffold for our class teachers. The scheme that we follow in our setting is 'The Power of PE'. 
The key concepts in P.E we plan a progression for are as follows:

  • Physical skills
  • Thinking skills
  • Personal skills
  • Health skills

At our school, children are encouraged to evaluate their own work as well as the work of other children. Within lessons children have the opportunity both to collaborate and compete with each other, and they have the opportunity to use a wide range of resources and equipment.
