Haberdashers' Crayford Primary School is proud to be partnered with Create Development and is a Real Legacy school and strives to create a new ambition for EVERY child. We are committed to get our children more active by developing the fundamental physical skills and our PE lessons will be centred around the child to enable them to be successful in the classroom later in life.
We recognise the vital contribution that Physical Education makes to a child's physical, social, emotional and cognitive development. PE is one of the statutory foundation subjects of the National Curriculum, and makes a vital and unique contribution to every child's physical development, health and wellbeing. Through building a body of key knowledge and skills, children should be encouraged to recognise the benefits of a healthy and active lifestyle and develop a sense of pride and excitement in their personal achievements.
We aim to provide high quality physical education and school sport, through personal challenge and healthy competition, that will lead to life-long participation and create positive healthy relationships with physical activity for life.
PE plays a vital role in promoting physical activities and a healthy lifestyle in a positive and enjoyable way for all children. Our PE curriculum aims to develop and challenge pupils' abilities in a range of physical activities and sports - helping them to develop their personal fitness and learn important life skills such as teamwork and perseverance.
At Haberdashers' Crayford Primary we use the Real PE system. It is fully aligned to the National Curriculum and Ofsted requirements, and focuses on the development of agility, balance and co-ordination, healthy competition and co- operative learning through a unique approach to teaching and learning. The skills are split into half termly topics - the objectives are progressive and children are able to refer to previous learning on movement, co-ordination and co-operation. This helps build on their understanding, creates links and challenges them to become greater PE learners. Real PE focuses on 6 key areas that are essential in the development of children as they grow and learn.
For all children to be able to effectively transfer skills and movements across a range of activities
For all children to perform in a variety of skills consistently and effectively in challenging or competitive situations
