Physical Education Curriculum Statement of Intent
At Thorpepark Academy, we believe that PE forms the basis for not only a child’s physical health, but also their mental health.
The teaching of PE is part of the broad and balanced curriculum offered to all pupils at Thorpepark. This begins in the Foundation stage, where pupils continuously access activities to promote movement and develop motor skills.
All year groups from Year 1 to Year 6 follow the National Curriculum to ensure full and in-depth coverage of all the objectives. In addition to this, pupils at Thorpepark will have opportunities to participate in a range of sports to provide varied skills.
We also believe that children at Thorpepark should access a wide range of extra-curricular activities and out of school events. Our partnerships with the Hull FC Foundation, City of Hull Boxing centre, Rock-a-Tots and Inspire dance ensure that children are able to find the activity that suits them, and hopefully inspire them to continue broadening their sporting horizons outside school.
