Physical Education

At Blenheim Primary School, we aim to develop positive attitudes towards physical activity and promote healthy lifestyles through a balanced programme of dance, games, gymnastics, athletics, swimming and outdoor activities. 

  

We believe that through the variety of opportunities that P.E. offers, children can develop a sense of personal achievement, fair play, teamwork and an understanding of the ways in which sport can transcend social and cultural boundaries.  

Purposes and Aims

  • To ensure that all children will be physically active and find enjoyment and fulfillment in physical activity which lasts a lifetime.
  • To provide opportunities for children to acquire and develop skills performing with increasing physical competence and confidence in a range of physical activities and contexts.
  • To develop positive attitudes to physical activity including perseverance, fair play and sportsmanship as well as the ability to cope with failure and promote a fair response to winning and losing
  • To teach children about personal safety in relation to their bodies/clothing and dangers in using equipment inappropriately, including within the water.
  • To develop children’s knowledge and understanding of the human body and its capabilities

 Early Years and Foundation Stage will work towards the following National Curriculum requirements;

Moving and handling: children show good control and co-ordination in large and small movements. They move confidently in a range of ways, safely negotiating space. They handle equipment and tools effectively.

Health and self-care: children know the importance for good health of physical exercise, and a healthy diet, and talk about ways to keep healthy and safe. They manage their own basic hygiene and personal needs successfully, including dressing and going to the toilet independently. 

Swimming Data

What is the current position?

  • Currently 80% of children can confidently and proficiently swim at least 25 metres (this is 30% higher than the national average according to Swim England).
  • The same percentage can use a range of strokes effectively.
  • Although children have been taught to perform safe self-rescue during swimming lessons only 20% feel confident to say that they could do this.

What further action is needed to improve these figures?

  • Planned ‘Catch up’ swimming lessons for the 20% who cannot yet swim 25 metres.
  • Class based activities based on the following:

Know the dangers on and under water

Effect(s) of cold water (for example - cold water shock)

Beach safety (lifeguard, flags, rip currents, waves etc.)

Shout and signal rescue

Throw rescue

Reach rescue
