Unfortunately due to Covid-19, and following government guidance, we are unable to resume swimming lessons. We will be in contact with the relevant parents once we are able to offer these lessons again. 

Intent, Implementation & Impact

Intent

At Dulverton, we recognise the positive value that an active and healthy lifestyle can have on a children's physical and mental wellbeing and learning. We believe that our PE provision should provide all of our pupils with a high quality physical education as well as opportunities to participate in a range of physical activity throughout the school day. We believe this will actively enable and encourage our pupils to lead active, healthy lives and to enjoy physical activity both in school and outside school.

 

We strive to provide our pupils with the opportunities to develop and apply skills, knowledge and concepts, to experiment and to be creative and imaginative within a broad range of sports and physical activity. We believe that our PE provision should facilitate and enable our pupils to discover and develop their physical potential whilst recognising and celebrating the cognitive, social and emotional learning opportunities that go hand in hand. 

 

Implementation

At Dulverton, we implement this by: 


  • Delivering a high quality PE curriculum that provides opportunities for pupils to experience, develop skills and excel in a broad range of sports and physical activity

  • Investing in planning, resources and staff CPD to increase staff confidence and develop subject knowledge
     
  • Providing opportunities for pupils to be physically active across the school day including cross curricular learning opportunities

  • Recognising and celebrating physical, cognitive, social and emotional achievements and progression within sport, both in and outside school

  • Providing opportunities to participate in intra and inter competitions including the School Games

  • Offering extra curricular clubs in a range of sports
