National Curriculum PE

National Curriculum PE

Physical Education (PE) is one of the four key strands of the Premier League Primary Stars programme. As the charitable arm of a Premier League Football Club, we are passionate about the importance of PE.

We pride ourselves on being specialists in the field of PE. We have made certain that one of our specialisms is in the planning, delivery and critical evaluation of high-quality National Curriculum PE. We aim to provide opportunities for children across our surrounding regions to develop confidence and competence in order to excel in a broad range of physical activities.

We want the children we work with to be physically active for sustained periods of time, engage in competitive sports and activities and lead healthy, active lives. We believe that PE should be placed inherently at the heart of the process to allow children to lead a wholesome, active lifestyle from an early age.

As well as allowing them to see the subject as a tool to facilitate greater impact in lives away from the pitch or the sports hall, it is something that, if implemented effectively, can completely transform a child’s behaviour, ability to concentrate and to think strategically in other subjects. Our sessions are underpinned by important life lessons that create outstanding members of society.

The preparation, implementation and assessment of PE lessons sit within the remit of BFCitC’s team of Sport Development Coaches, who are experts within their field.

Our Sport Development Coaches are highly skilled and training practitioners who possess the knowledge, strategies and qualifications that allow them to effectively deliver lessons that are enriching and holistically beneficial to a child’s physiological, sociological and psychological development.

We refer to the National Curriculum guidelines, relevant PE and sport philosophy and our own PE pedagogy to develop and design creative and engaging sessions.

Key Stage 1

Pupils should develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination; individually and with others.

They should be able to engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and cooperative physical activities in a range of increasingly challenging situations.

Key Stage 2

Pupils should continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to making actions and sequences of movement. They should enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other.

They should develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.
