PE – Intent, Implementation and Impact Statement
At OPJS, we are dedicated to ensuring that all pupils, no matter their background, are equipped with the skills to enable them to be physically literate, as well as the knowledge and motivation necessary for them to embark upon a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
Physical Education and sport have a vital role to play in the physical, social, emotional and intellectual development of children. The ambitious and inclusive PE curriculum at OPJS aims to provide pupils with opportunities to develop self- confidence through an ability to manage themselves successfully in a variety of situations. Children develop their fundamental skills (agility, balance and co-ordination) from year to year and build upon previous learning in game specific contexts. Children take part in a wide range of sports and physical activities applying these fundamental skills on both an educational and competitive level. These are carried out in a safe and supportive environment, where effort and hard-work, as well as success, are celebrated, and enjoyment and working together is promoted. Leadership is valued and seen as a key area to succeed in life; therefore pupils are given opportunities to experience leadership or assume volunteer roles that support sport and physical activity within the school. Staff are provided with support and offered continued professional development in areas that they need to provide high quality PE provision.
Throughout each child’s journey through OPJS they will become physically literate individuals that are motivated to be involved in physical activity for life. The high-quality, inclusive curriculum offered to each child inspires and gives them the tools to remain healthy, play competitive sport and have good quality wellbeing.
