Physical Education Curriculum

PE at Penpol School

We as a school feel it is crucial for children to acquire the necessary fundamental physical skills at a young age. Therefore, it is our aim that all children have acquired the majority of these skills by the end of KS1. Allowing the children to opportunity to develop the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding that provides the children at Penpol School the movement foundation for a lifelong participation in physical activity. Enabling them to be physically literate supports their development as competent, confident and healthy movers.

At Penpol School we see it as our responsibility to provide an opportunity for every child to exceed their own expectations. That is why we have made it our mission to do so.

We are achieving this by providing:

  • Close links with local community clubs and specialist coaches like Hayle Rugby Club, Hayle Tennis ClubShore Surf, Shilton Soccer and Hayle Surf-Lifesaving Club.
  • All KS1 & KS2 classes receive professional tennis coaching.
  • 2 hours of high quality PE a week.
  • 10 swim sessions a year for every junior child in partnership with RNLI assemblies and SwimSafe events
  • All KS1 & KS2 classes receive professional tennis coaching.
  • An enjoyable accessible ‘Wake and Shake’ routine for all children and staff.
  • Competitive house related competitions, including an age specific Sports Days and Swimming Galas.
  • Active play provision across both playgrounds including our new climbing frames.
