At Biggin HIll Primary School we strive to give all young people, whatever their ability, circumstances or background, the opportunity to engage with and enjoy PE. We aim to promote the development of their physical health, safety and wellbeing to allow them to reach their fullest potential. We provide a safe and supportive environment for children to flourish in a range of physical activities, which is essential in supporting their physical, emotional, social and moral development.
Throughout their time at Biggin Hill Primary School the children will get to enjoy a variety of sports. In KS1 the pupils develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident across a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others.
In KS2 the pupils further develop these skills, whilst adding more sport specific fine motor skills. The pupils begin to develop a greater understanding for a wide range of physical activity within games, dance, gymnastics and athletics amongst others. Not only do the children work on their physical activity but they also begin to analyse tactics and work on problem solving to achieve a goal, as well as evaluating their own and the success of others. Children enjoy taking part in a variety of different extra curricular activities such as football, multisports, dance, netball, gymnastics and others. They have the opportunity to compete against other schools.
The pupils will also access physical activity through cross curricular links, for instance learning games of past times including games of the Victorian era as well as Roman games or within science the children delve into how the body works looking at athletes such as Dina Asha Smith.
Biggin Hill Primary School has accepted government funding to increase the calibre and provision of school sport. The school is committed to ensuring that quality and sustainability are chiefly attended to, as can be reflected by the particular focus placed upon enhancing professional development of teaching staff therefore increasing the experiences and opportunities given to the children.PE Overview 21-22
