Intent: At Granby, we aim to provide a PE curriculum that pupils enjoy and one that allows them to experience a broad range of activities to help them develop their health, fitness and wellbeing.
We want to give children as many opportunities as possible to participate in a range of sports and activities through weekly lessons, after school clubs, competitive events and festivals.
We aim to foster a love of physical activity and sport in our pupils and encourage the development of sporting values, such as fairness and respect.
Children are taught regularly by both teaching staff and sports instructors from Year 3 to Year 6. The curriculum is further enhanced by participation in numerous sporting competitions and events with other schools in the area, through our link with the ESSP, and after school clubs. Our play leader, Miss Chambers, supervises a variety of sports activities at lunchtime.
We plan our curriculum to encompass the aims and programmes of study in the National Curriculum for Key Stage 2 and to be progressive so that our pupils develop their skills, knoweldge and understanding throughout their time at Granby. Please see our subpages below for overviews for each year group.
We equip our children with the necessary skills and a love for sport. It is our hope that they will continue in their lives after Granby to live happy and healthy lives, utilising the skills and knowledge acquired through PE.
The Sainsbury’s School Games is a unique opportunity to motivate and inspire millions of young people across the country to take part in more competitive school sport. Here at Granby, we strive to achieve the aims of the School Games.
The Games are made up of different levels of activity including competition in schools and between schools:
The Sainsbury’s School Games is based around 6 key values. We encourage our children to follow these values, not only in sport, but in everything they do.
The Spirit of the Games Values focus on personal excellence through competition. There are six values:
Honesty: With others and with yourself. Have the courage to do the right thing. Be truthful and promote fairness in every situation.
Treat everyone equally, support each other’s and work together to have fun and achieve. Celebrate each others’ success. Be a good friend and a positive team player in school, sport and life.
Treating others politely and with understanding. Accepting life’s ‘ups and downs’ with grace. Respect everyday, in everything you do and for everyone around you.
You’ve got to believe to achieve. Have the self belief and confidence to succeed and reach your personal best.
Giving it 100%, putting your heart and soul into whatever you are doing and never giving up. Care about what you do and the people around you, and approach each opportunity with enthusiasm and positivity.
Keep going no matter what. Determination is about the journey you go on to push yourself and achieve your dreams. Have the mental strength and the self discipline to overcome obstacles, commit to your goals and keep working every day to become the very best you can be. Don’t hold back!
