Physical Education

Curriculum Overview:

PE at The Greetland Academy is an integral part of the curriculum. We give the children the opportunity to experience a range of sporting activities and to compete in competitions, aimed at all abilities. We provide children with the chance to excel and showcase their talents in a variety of different sports. Every child participates in at least two hours of PE per week and alongside this we offer a lunchtime sports provision for KS2 children and a large number of after school and lunchtime clubs across both key stages. We ensure that sporting opportunities are varied in order to increase participation and encourage children to try new sports.

PE at KS1
We offer a broad curriculum which allows children to develop their fundamental movement skills and increase confidence in balance, agility and coordination. Children participate in a range of competitive and cooperative sports including dance and gymnastics, multi skills,
throwing and catching and invasion games. We continue to develop CPD for teaching staff to ensure high quality provision is delivered. We work with a number of local specialist coaches to ensure that staff skills, knowledge and understanding are constantly improving

PE at KS2
At the Greetland Academy we offer a wide variety of sports on a one-year cycle. This ensures children develop skills in gymnastics and dance, net and wall games, invasion sports, inclusion sports, striking and fielding, outdoor and adventure, world sports and athletics. All children in Year 3,4 and 5 participate in 1 term of swimming each year at Sowerby Bridge Swimming Pool, where they learn the essential skills required to become a confident swimmer and to understand water safety. We aim fro all children to achieve their National Curriculum Swimming Award. We offer top-up swimming lessons for children in Year 6 who have not yet achieve the required standards in swimming. We continue to develop CPD for teaching staff to ensure high quality provision is delivered. We work with a number of local specialist coaches to ensure that staff skills, knowledge and understanding are constantly improving.
Children have many opportunities to attend competitive sporting events and tournaments outside of school lessons. We have an excellent relationship with the Calderdale School Games Programme which provides children the opportunity to represent the school in our local area.
