An introduction from our PE Leader - Miss Gayson  



At Longlands Primary School, we recognise the importance of PE and the role it has to play in promoting long term, healthy lifestyles. The intent of our PE curriculum is to provide all children with high quality PE and sport provision. It is our vision for every pupil to succeed and achieve their potential, as well as to lead physically active lifestyles. We strive to inspire our pupils through fun and engaging PE lessons that are enjoyable, challenging and accessible to all. We want our pupils to appreciate the benefits of a healthy and physically active lifestyle. Through our teaching of PE, we will provide opportunities for pupils to develop values and transferrable life skills such as fairness and respect, as well as providing them with opportunities to take part in competitive sport.



Throughout their time at Longlands, the children are able to develop the skills that they are taught in Gymnastics, dance, invasion games, athletics, striking and fielding. They have the opportunity to engage in fun and purposeful PE lessons, where they are able to develop and apply the skills that they have learnt.

Children at Longlands are given the opportunity to take part in a variety of different sports within and outside of lessons. They are able to showcase the skills that they have learnt and apply these to competitive games. They are encouraged to play as part of a team and to adopt a sense of fairness during games. Children at Longlands also adopt a growth mindset approach to new skills and sports, which allows them to demonstrate a great sense of determination.

Children are taught about the importance of a healthy lifestyle. In KS1 and EYFS, children are taught what their body needs to keep healthy and they are encouraged to talk about what their body feels like before and after exercise. By KS2, children are aware of the importance of a healthy lifestyle and can begin to notice the improvements in their own fitness.

Children are given the opportunity to take part in competitions, within the borough. In 2022, Longlands was awarded the Silver Award from School Games Mark for our participation in competitions and sport. When they are able to play for the school, the children demonstrate a great sense of pride. These competitions allow a lot of children their first experience of playing a sport in a competitive environment and it allows the children to discover new passions within sport. All children at Longlands are given the opportunity to take part in competitions within their PE lessons. They are also able to take part in our school sports day and represent their school houses in different athletic activities. This gives all children the opportunity to showcase and apply the skills they have learnt.



We measure the progress of the children learning through teacher assessment at the end of every PE unit. We also measure the impact of PE teaching through photos and videos of the skills the children have demonstrated. Children also self-evaluate their own progress of new PE skills. They think about what they already know they can do and what they now know they can do at the end of the unit. Progress is also tracked through learning walks.

On Wednesday 19th October, I took a group of year 4 children to Hurstmere school for a badminton festival. At the festival, the children took part in lots of different activities to help them with their badminton skills. They had to practise their target shooting with giant shuttlecocks. They had to catch the shuttlecock with giant nets and they had to practise using the badminton racket. The final activity was badminton golf they had to aim the shuttlecock into the hoop to gain a point. The children had lots of fun learning a new skill!
