Intent, Implementation and Impact
At Burlish Park Primary, we aim to develop the knowledge, skills and capabilities necessary for mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing in our children now and for their future. We value physical fitness as an important part of leading a healthier lifestyle. Children develop self-discipline and the understanding that to be successful you must work hard, show resilience and have the determination to believe that anything can be achieved.
Children at Burlish Park Primary receive high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire them to succeed in physical activities. Our children are able to cooperate and collaborate with others, as part of a team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values.
Pupils from Year 1 to 6 will receive two hours of a broad, balanced and progressive curriculum where they will be taught by their class teacher and also a specialist PE teacher. Class teachers will have access to support from the specialist PE teacher, who is an SLE.
Pupils will have the opportunity to attend extra-curricular clubs, represent their house and the school at a wide range of sports.
Lessons and extra-curricular clubs will be supported by coaches from local clubs to help signpost pupils to further opportunities to be involved in sport locally.
Pupils who need extra support with their physical development will join an intervention group run by the Sports Teaching Assistant to help close the gap with their peers.
The pupils will have the opportunity to ‘learn to lead – lead to learn’ which will help develop their physical, social and thinking skills.
Through active lessons and purposeful play at breaktimes and lunchtimes (bouldering wall, gym equipment, Playleaders etc) pupils will have the opportunity to meet the national expectation of 30 minutes of physical activity per day.
Pupils leaving Burlish Park Primary School will be physically literate and will have the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle. The pupils will develop a lifelong interest in sport and being physical active.
With pupils participating in PE and School Sport, they will develop their physical skills as well as their social skills. Their emotional health and well-being will have a positive impact and with the pupils leading healthy active lives, they can hopefully perform better academically and have a successful future.
Many of the pupils will develop a love for sport, join local clubs and enjoy a lifelong love of sport.
