The purpose of Physical Education at Bradford Academy is to develop our learner’s physical, social and thinking skills, along with promoting awareness of a healthy lifestyle. The curriculum provides opportunities for all learners to participate in a wide variety of physical activities and sports over the course of each academic year.
Bradford Academy use a unique curriculum, developed over many years that builds on the statutory guidance to provide a well-rounded developmental experience for all learners. Through term 1, Key Stage 1 focus on fundamental movement skills (FMS) whilst Key Stage 2 participate in invasion games. All children do gymnastics and dance in term 2. In term 3, both key stages take part in athletics, striking and fielding (cricket, rounders, etc.) along with net and wall games (such as tennis). Key stage 1 will use these to focus again on the FMS they need to develop.
Children take part in two PE lessons weekly and also have the opportunity to be involved in various extra-curricular sports clubs and competitions through the academic year. The nature of delivery and the curriculum allows pupils to revisit the concepts they have learnt previously as they move through Bradford Academy. They develop the key physical, social and thinking skills along with developing strong values (in line with the Olympic values) to provide a consistent and well-rounded approach to develop the whole child.
Staff are well trained and regularly monitor children’s progress to ensure that they are engaged in activities that develop their skills and help them grow in confidence. Staff provide many and varied opportunities for children to develop their speech through careful questioning and a range of interesting activities. Children are safe and happy and play well together.
