Physical Education

At Bentley Heath, we follow the REAL PE scheme of work while adapting it to include sport specific skills. REAL PE is a unique, child centred PE scheme which focuses on being inclusive, challenging and supportive of every child. It focuses on the development of fundamental physical skills such as agility, balance and co-ordination.

Children are given the opportunities to apply these progressive skills in engaging and fun activities. The scheme also focuses on developing the emotional, social and cognitive skills by developing the ethos of healthy competition and co-operative learning. As a school we are committed to develop every child’s physical and social development that will support them in their future.Through PE, children develop many non-physical skills such as creativity, resilience, perseverance, communication and confidence that can be applied.

The teaching and implementation of the Physical Education Curriculum at Bentley Heath is taught by a combination of class teachers and supported by Sports Coaches who provide vital mentoring and support to teachers. Through REAL PE’s lesson structure and differentiated activities, every child has opportunities to take part and be successful where effort, participation and development is supported. We teach the National Curriculum via REAL PE’s progression of skills. This ensures that skills and knowledge are built on year by year and sequenced appropriately to maximise learning for all children. Children in Year 4 go swimming as part of their PE curriculum.
