Physical Education

The Ruskin Academy School PE curriculum is designed to physically prepare pupils for the next stage in their lives. The pupils develop key skills of throwing, catching, running, being able to swim, spatial awareness, coordination and teamwork. They know about the importance of physical activity to a healthy lifestyle. They have experienced a wide range of sports, games and other physical activities and are encouraged tofurther pursue those which they are interested in.

At Ruskin Academy, we use the PE Hub programme to support the delivery of our PE curriculum.
We intend that every child, irrelevant of their needs, develops a passion for Physical Education. We aspire for them to seek out and embrace the wide range of sporting opportunities provided at Ruskin Academy School and take up clubs further afield. We aim for every pupil:

  • to become technically proficient.
  • wholeheartedly drive both competitive and non-competitive sporting opportunities
  • to lead a healthy, active lifestyle.

All classes take part in 2 hours of National Curriculum PE per week.

There are many other ways that our physical activity time is enhanced:

  • Active break and lunchtimes - where classes take part in a physical activity such as daily physically active games.
  • Residential educational visits (Year 6 PGL Educational Visit)
  • Gardening
  • A wide range of extra-curricular opportunities such as afterschool clubs or local sports events

At Ruskin Academy, we know that children learn best when the curriculum is well sequenced. Children revisit core knowledge, skills and understanding to deepen conceptual awareness. We plan PE activities so that they build upon the prior learning of the children. Children of all abilities develop their skills, knowledge and understanding in each activity area. Progression is planned for, so that children are increasingly challenged as they move through school.

As required in the National Curriculum we teach dance, games, gymnastics, swimming and water safety, outdoor and adventurous activities and athletics.
