Becoming a confident Sportsperson at BFPA


Key skill: Hand eye coordination, Teamwork, Ball skills

Visual support: REAL PE cognitive skills

Our aim is that children who leave our school in Year 6 will be able:

  • To demonstrate precision, control and fluency when using equipment such as balls and bats.
  • To combine and employ skills they have learnt and demonstrate the understanding of tactics.
  • To demonstrate control of their own body when executing rolls and other gymnastic movements, as well as in game situations.
  • To show confidence and enthusiasm in a range of different physical activities.
  • Demonstrate sportsmanship and team spirit, using positive vocabulary to support one another both in victory and defeat.
  • To accept defeat and to find enjoyment in participation and playing with others.

How our children learn to be a Sportsperson

Every year, our children take part in a range of PE lessons that cover various styles of physical activity and exercise: Throwing and catching games (that develops into invasion games in KS2), Gymnastics, Dance and Athletics. 

We look to develop a range of skills during PE sessions (both through our REAL PE scheme and specialist sports coaches) that develop and grow each year as part of our spiral curriculum. Alongside opportunities to continually advance their fitness and physical skills, we also support our children in developing a positive attitude towards PE with a focus on strengthening social, cognitive and personal skills.  We look to nurture a positive PE environment where all children can be creative, find enjoyment and support one another through positive praise and constructive critique. A focus on these transferable skills will help support our children as they move into secondary school and adulthood.
