PE at Cape Primary

"More Active, More of the Time"

The goal of Physical Education and Sport at Cape Primary School is to enable pupils to become more active through a curriculum that develops skills throughout their time at school. We aim for pupils to develop, not only fundamental skills linked to different sports and activities, but also life skills that they can use in the future and encourage, build and maintain healthy life styles. It is important that children develop an enjoyment in Physical Education and an understanding of why being more physically active will help them in their everyday lives. Physical Education and Sport at Cape Primary provides experiences that allow pupils to develop their competence, resilience and maturity in working alone, with a partner and within a team. We are dedicated to educate both our children and families to develop a greater understanding on how to live healthy lifestyles and develop healthy minds.

Physical Education begins when pupils start in our Early Years Foundation Stage and are encouraged to develop their Physical Development through planned continuous provision activities and specific programmes which support and develop their fine and gross motor skills. Pupils develop core strength, co-ordination and balance to enable them to reach the Early Learning Goal.

The National Curriculum is then used to support Physical Education throughout Key Stage One and Key Stage Two.

Pupils in Key Stage One are encouraged to continually develop fundamental movement skills and become increasingly competent and confident in a broad range of sports and activities.

Pupils in Key Stage Two are encouraged to continually apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and link them to actions and sequence of movement. Pupils are taught how to enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other.

Pupils at Cape Primary have the opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills through a wide range of extra-curricular activities and sports, in house and also through inter-school competitions within the Smethwick cluster, allowing them to ‘show case’ their skills and build community links, through enjoyment and motivation of being ‘more active, more of the time.
