Physical Education (PE)

Here at Thorpe we were determined to explore an approach and supporting resources that would directly align with the vision and values of our school. We know active, healthy children achieve more. It was essential that Physical Education supported the philosophy of our School, developed the whole child and that every pupil felt included, challenged and supported.

We wanted a programme of training and materials that, with the subject leader’s guidance and mentoring, enabled all teachers and support staff to deliver exciting and engaging lessons with the confidence over time to deliver outstanding outcomes for all children. It was essential for us that we could demonstrate and evidence clear impact of learning, perceptions and positive behaviours and make the very best sustainable use of our sports premium spend.

We believe we can create an enabling environment in PE where young people feel included, valued, challenged and supported to achieve their maximum potential, in school and in life. Create Development share our ambition and have a vision to create positive relationships with physical activity for life. Their vision is to redefine what’s possible for PE, Sport and physical activity through a new, positive and inclusive culture.

Real PE is a PE curriculum philosophy and approach which helps ALL children develop the physical literacy, emotional and thinking skills to achieve in PE, sport and life. It places the learner at the heart of practice with the ultimate goal of transforming how we teach PE, applying all of the high quality learning and teaching skills that have become the norm in other subjects. It supports teachers and other practitioners to make small changes that will have a significant impact on their learners.
