Our approach to teaching Physical Education at Houghton Primary School

In order that our learners are enabled to develop the key characteristics for physical education we are committed to high quality provision which is driven by the belief that engaging in physical activity, sport and competition is essential to leading active and healthy lives. We are driven by the very real concern that the current generation of children are less active and will have more health problems than previous generations of children. This video shows the possible impact.

We want all our children to engage in physical activity throughout the school day and work hard to ensure that they do so across the curriculum. Our PE curriculum is one aspect of ensuring that we have active children. We teach a minimum of 2 hours curricular PE each week. We follow the Cambridgeshire Local Authority PE Scheme of Work to ensure coverage and progression. We engage with Hunts Schools Sports Partnership to ensure that our teachers work along qualified PE teachers and coaches to deliver high quality teaching in PE. We organise a variety of extra-curricular opportunities for our children and take part in lots of competition, both within school and across schools. We hold a ‘Sports Morning’ once a month which is led by our Year 5 and 6 Sports Leaders for children in years 2 – 6.

We uphold the School Games values and they form the mainstay of our House Point Award system when we award points when we see the values being demonstrate;
