Physical Education (PE)

 

We aim to provide a high quality physical education curriculum that is accessible to all. It will inspire all pupils to achieve and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. Phyiscal Education provides opportunities for children to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. This will be implamented during lessons and INSPIRE Plus (extra curricular provision). Opportunities are provided to children to compete in sport and other activities to build character and help embed values such as fairness, respect and our own school Christian values. 

In EYFS, our children develop their fine and gross motor skills in order to participate in non sport specific team games and individual games. Each half term the children in EYFS focus on a different athelte giving children a diverse range of sporting role models to look up to.  

In Key Stage 1 (KS1), we aim to provide children with the foundations to become adept at a wide range of sports. In Key Stage Two (KS2) we combine the knowledge and skills children have learnt in KS1 to prepare the children for competitive events and team games. We provide an excellent range of sporting and physical activity including offering KS2 children the opportunity to attend skiing lessons which cover moving on the flat, getting up the slope, excercises on the way down and how to stop.  

We are very proud to offer a wide range of extra curricular sports clubs each half term as part of INSPIRE Plus provided by specialist sport coaches, children recieve the best coaching in different areas of sport from Taekwando to Basketball. We also offer an Active Playground lunch time club every lunch time on our yard encouraging children to play a variety of sports keeping active throughout the day. The after school clubs clubs we offer do vary every half term giving children a wide range of different sporting activities over the academic year. Please find this half terms INSPIRE Plus school sport club timetable below to see the range of clubs on offer. 

We have strong links with local clubs including Liverpool Football Club, Everton Football club and LSSP. We recognise children's talents and abilities giving children the opportunities to take their skills further by signposting more able children to clubs and ensuring children are reaching their full potential. 

At The Beacon we promote a healthy, active lifestyle. We are proud to take part in Cross Country events through the LSSP, we promote this in school by making the most of our local area and encouraging children to take part in activities. We recently completed a whole school fun run in Everton Park which was enjoyed by all children and staff. 

Children will also have oppportunities to take part in competitions throughout the year through our partnership with the Liverpool Schools Sports Partnership. You can keep up to date with any competitions we take part in through our school twitter account.

Children will also have the opportunity to compete in intra school competitions applying the skills they have learnt in units across the year.
