The MAT philosophy of ‘Fun, Creativity and Achievement’ will be embedded fully within our PE curriculum,
where our overall intent will be that every child gains the physical, emotional, and thinking skills needed to
enable them to achieve personal success in PE, Sport, and life.
The PE curriculum will be enhanced by opportunities given to our children to experience sports such as
archery, trampolining, and indoor skydiving, and for them to receive specialist coaching in sports such as
tennis, football, rugby, hockey, cricket, athletics, and dance.
This enrichment will be dovetailed by the highly effective extracurricular club provision which will be on
offer at the school, where a comprehensive range of sports and activities will be accessible for our children to
take part in. Furthermore, we will provide exceptional opportunities for our children to engage in a wide range
of MAT, local and regional competitive events for both our individual and team sports athletes.
PE will be taught on a weekly basis following the unique and child-centered scheme of ‘real PE’. Real PE is
fully aligned to the National Curriculum and places the child at the heart of all lessons, with the ultimate goal
of all children feeling valued, included, challenged, and supported.
From the very beginning of a child’s learning journey at school, the 6 multi abilities of social, personal,
creative, cognitive, physical and health, and fitness will underpin every PE lesson with a view to creating
transferrable skills which can be used across the whole curriculum.
The EYFS curriculum and the school’s wider work will support our pupils to develop resilience, confidence
and independence and lead a healthy and active lifestyle, helping them to know how to keep physically and
mentally healthy and thus enhancing their personal development.
Within KS1, there will be a focus on the development of fundamental movement skills (agility balance and
coordination), healthy competition (both individually and with others), and cooperative learning within a range
of increasingly challenging situations. Through clear, sequential objectives, lessons will ensure a logical
progression in attainment, with children in KS2 continuing to apply and develop a broader range of skills,
learning how to use them in different ways and learning to link them to make actions and sequences of
The PE curriculum at Holne Chase will cater to the needs and abilities of all of our children, enabling every
child to work at a level suitable to their own ability. Teachers will support, stretch and challenge all children
to ensure every child achieves outstanding progress.
During all lessons, children will get the opportunity to communicate, collaborate and compete with each other
as well as see them gaining an understanding of how to analyse and improve personal and peer performance
in different physical activities and sports whilst learning how to evaluate and recognise their own successes.
By providing a rich and varied curriculum, along with giving our children a wealth of different sporting
opportunities and experiences, plus the extensive range of extracurricular clubs which we plan to put in place,
we at Holne Chase will ensure that our children create positive relationships with physical activity for life,
whilst developing their understanding of how to keep physically healthy, eat healthily, and maintain a healthy,
balanced and active lifestyle.
