Dothill Primary School

What PE looks like at Dothill

At Dothill, we aim to encourage and develop all pupil’s physical educational skills as well as supporting and promoting their achievements. The Physical Education curriculum taught at Dothill supports and contributes to this aim.

Every child at Dothill is taught PE weekly. In Key Stage 2, children take part in two lessons per week and Key Stage 1 pupils are taught at least 1 PE lesson per week. Each lesson planned is differentiated appropriately to allow access to all pupils, regardless of their ability, gender, race, religion and special need, especially where there is a physical disability. We teach a range of units to cover the fundamental skills, knowledge and concepts set out in the National Curriculum. These include games, dance, gymnastics, athletics, swimming and outdoor and adventurous activities.

Dothill are part of the Telford and Wrekin Sports Partnership and we participate in regular inter-school competitions throughout the academic year. As a School Games registered school, we have achieved platinum status for the second time due to our commitment to the development of competition across our school and community. In addition to this, all children participate in sports day each year.

Sporting achievements, both inside and outside of school, are celebrated regularly in achievement assemblies and pupils’ sporting successes are shared with parents in our monthly newsletter and on our school website.

Why is PE important?

Dothill Primary School believe Physical education gives pupils the opportunities for a healthy lifestyle through enjoyment of sports and games. PE not only positively influences a child’s physical health but also a child’s social and emotional development, particularly their self-esteem.

We intend to provide children with lifelong skills such as, organising, evaluating, collaborating and communication through the teaching of quality PE lessons.
