Beechview Academy aims to create a learning environment in which we prepare young people for a happy, confident entry to the world. We aim to provide our pupils with opportunities to develop as confident and independent learners that have high aspirations and believe in themselves.
At Beechview Academy we provide children with a broad and balanced PE curriculum, which follows the skill based focus of the National Curriculum.
We encourage lifelong, independent learners and aim for children to develop, build and master their own skills. We also focus on developing physical literacy, which will enable them to improve their decision making, enhancing their learning and development in PE.
PE is taught, using National Curriculum 2014 objectives and follows a whole school framework of age related expectations. This has been developed by a PE specialist, who has devised the units of work, to ensure progression and development within a year group, as well as across the year groups. The units allow the children at Beechview to learn skills that will help support them physically as well as in the School Games Competition Calendar, allowing children to be mentally and physically prepared to compete.
PE units of work are planned according to the skill based structure of the National Curriculum and new units of work consolidate existing learning. This is done by practising and developing existing skills and improving them further, linking and embedding these skills across all areas of PE.
PE at Beechview Academy strives to get children ready for the next stage in their lives in many ways. Socially, they will be able to work with their peers and to communicate and listen to each other effectively and share ideas.
