Intent and Planning

At Red Hall Primary school, we strive to develop a high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to participate in regular physical activity to support their health and wellbeing.

We aim to develop our children’s confidence in 3 key aspects of physical education:

  • motor competence (their knowledge of the range of movements that become increasingly sport- and physical activity-specific)
  • rules, strategies and tactics (their knowledge of the conventions of participation in different sports and physical activities)
  • healthy participation (knowledge of safe and effective participation)

In order for our pupils to improve their skills across the three aspects of PE, so they are highly competent and able to reach the aims of the National Curriculum, We spend 2 hours a week with specific PE focus’, ensuring the children of Red Hall have a depth and security of understand which can be seen throughout our curriculum.

PE Kit

Our PE kit consists of:

White T-Shirt
Red, Black or Navy Shorts
Black Plimsolls or Trainers
Trainers (outdoor lessons)

Red Jumpers, T-shirts, shorts and bags are available to order from the school office.

Sports Leaders

At Red Hall, we have a small group of Sports Leaders as part of our PE provision, from classes Year 6,5 and 4. These children meet regularly meet to discuss any ideas regarding physical education. Sports leaders have an opportunity to share their own thoughts and opinions with the group and collectively agree on any decisions that are made.

Sports Leaders apply at the start of each academic year by writing a letter of application stating why they think they would make an excellent candidate for the job and most importantly, why they want to be one!

Sports Leaders are trained at the beginning of the year to lead activities and games with younger children and are taught the important qualities that are needed when working with young people. Once they have become qualified and received their certificates, Sports Leaders work with Key Stage 1 and 2  children during lunchtimes and break times each week to lead games and ensure playtimes are inclusive for everyone and that no child is left alone with no one to play with. Sports Leaders will also be responsible for.

  • Monitoring Sports equipment
  • Running Break Time/Lunch time clubs
  • Hold Assemblies once a term to showcase PE in Red Hall
  • Support some after school clubs
  • Lead Activities on Sports Day

This role develops important values such a patience, friendship, compassion, and kindness as well as building their confidence and communication skills throughout the year.

Sports Leaders will help to organise and lead events such as Sports Day, Sport Relief and give opinions on what they would like our PE and sport provision at Red Hall to offer in the future.
