Physical Education
At Sybourn Primary, we believe that physical education is a vital and unique part of the curriculum. It develops children’s knowledge, skills and understanding so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. PE promotes children's understanding  of their bodies in action. It involves thinking, selecting and applying skills, and promotes positive attitudes towards a healthy lifestyle thus enabling them to make informed choices about physical activity throughout their lives.

PE in the Foundation Stage
In the Foundation Stage, the physical development of a child is designated a Prime Area of the new EYFS Framework. At Sybourn, we provide children with the opportunity to take part in a range of activities that offer physical challenge, both indoors and outdoors, using a wide range of equipment and resources
as they work towards the Early Learning Goals in this area. Teachers use the age-related statements in the Development Matters document to assess pupil progress and plan appropriate activities. 


Participation
All students are expected to participate in PE lessons; this includes swimming. Students who are not able to participate due to sickness or injury will require a note from the child’s parents/guardian. Should this be a long-term injury or ailment then a doctor’s note or medical evidence will be required.

Swimming
Our children go swimming in Year 4. We use the facilities at Forest School, and they provide a professional swimming instructor to ensure children receive high-quality provision.

Uniform

All students are to wear a PE kit. This includes either shorts or tracksuit trousers, and a t-shirt (preferably white). Jeans and casual clothes are NOT considered to be suitable. If a student does not bring or wear their PE  kit, they will not able to participate in the lesson. Instead they will observe the lesson and write a commentary on what was taught. The school’s PE kit can be purchased online.

If a student continually forgets or refuses to bring in a suitable PE kit, the teacher will contact the parents to discuss the issue. Disciplinary sanctions may be imposed on students who continually forget or refuse to bring in a PE kit for lessons.

PE in KS1 and KS2
Each class has a minimum of two hours' PE timetabled each week, with Activate sessions increasing this amount to over two hours. The school strives to offer pupils opportunities for games and sports clubs outside of the curriculum either through the provision of after-schools clubs or directing children to other organisations and clubs that provide
out-of-hours coaching.

The school also offers opportunities for pupils to compete in both intra- (in school) and inter- (between schools) competitions in a range of sports. We feel competition is an element of life and should be experienced within school. Dealing with winning and losing can then take place in the context of a learning environment.


If you require further information on PE, please contact the school and ask for Daniel Lowe, the PE lead.
