Physical Education at Bewick Bridge


Bewick Bridge pupils will have the motivation, resilience, confidence, physical competence, knowledge, and skills to value and take responsibility for engagement in physical activity - in both curricular and extracurricular activities.


The whole school overview ensures that there is progression throughout the school and that children are building upon knowledge learnt in previous years. The units are designed so that pupils develop the physical, cognitive and social skills that will enable them to take part in a range of activities and sports. We recognise that within classes, there is a wide variety of abilities and teachers provide suitable learning opportunities that are matched to the needs of all children. Teaching will be supplemented with weekly lunch clubs in which all children will be taking part in addition to optional after school clubs . In the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), PE is linked to the Early Learning Goals as physical development (gross and fine motor skills).


PE is assessed using end of unit core tasks that will allow children to show all skills learnt throughout the unit. Teachers will use a skills success criteria and tracking grids with an average created from each unit for a termly assessment to aid their assessments. They will also record a part of the core practice in every unit to ensure accuracy of the assessments. Children’s attainment will be recorded on a spreadsheet for every unit in order to track progression and provide intervention where appropriate.  Further information regarding assessment in PE is available in the PE assessment guidance document.
