PE and Sport

Our PE Intent

At Winterbourne Earls it is our intention to build a curriculum that enables children to develop knowledge, skills and vocabulary in a broad range of sporting activities, as well as developing values and life skills such as fairness, respect and inspiration. We aim to give children the tools and understanding required to make a positive impact in their own physical health and well-being. PE can challenge and promote self-esteem through the development of physical confidence and problem solving. It can teach children to cope with both success and failure in competitive, individual and team based physical activities. We provide a fun, quality physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed through a positive Growth Mindset and a resilience to perservere. We are passionate about the need to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others, as part of a team, and give them time to work together to develop these skills.

At Winterbourne Earls we pride ourselves on providing opportunities for students of all abilities to engage in a wide range of sports and physical activity. We believe all children should experience high quality PE and  sport, participating in at least two hours of physical education as part of the school curriculum. This year we are using a new scheme of work REAL PE. REAL PE is a fundamental movement skills scheme devised by Ronnie Heath from Create development. The Curriculum is based on the teaching and development of the basic skills:  Agility, Balance and Coordination.  We follow a Multi skills based curriculum from Foundation Stage to Year 2, introducing formal games such as tag rugby, hockey, netball and kwik cricket in KS2.  Alongside games, there is a strong focus on gymnastics, dance and outdoor education & problem solving.  Pupils in year 3 also have 2 terms of swimming lessons. We  also provide various extra-curricular clubs and specialist coaches for extra expertise in a range of sports. Access to the 'Change4Life' program promotes healthy and active lifestyles.
