Physical Education

At Our Lady & St. Rose of Lima, we have designed a PE curriculum to develop motor competence, children’s knowledge of strategies and tactics and encourage healthy participation. We want all children to develop and experience their Physical Education at OLSR. Our curriculum is planned to sequentially build declarative and procedural knowledge from Nursery to Year Six. The focus in EYFS & Key Stage One is largely on the fundamental movement skills (locomotor, stability and manipulation). Children in KS2 then develop competency in a range of sports using these skills. The sports covered stay the same throughout the key stage to give children the opportunity to practise and refine their skills within each discipline. (Please see the whole school overview and progression map for more detail). The area in which our school is situated is in the most deprived 10% of the city. (Weoley and Selly Oak Ward Factsheet). As such, it is even more vital that “Through careful selection and sequencing of curriculum content that develops pupils’ competence, more pupils can believe the PE is for them and inequalities can be reduced”. (OFSTED research review series:PE). PESSPA provides a brilliant opportunity for children to develop British Values. The importance of democracy can be seen in the input of the sports council, the teaching of rules, fairness and respect underpins the rule of law, the value of individual liberty is evidenced in the acknowledgement that despite all being different we can each strive to beat our own personal best and mutual respect and tolerance is fostered through healthy competition.
