Our PE curriculum is designed in conjunction with our school’s mission statement. Our vision for the children is to ensure that opportunities are provided to create independent, confident, and highly motivated life-long learners. We build children’s aspirations to enable them to achieve success now and in the future. Our school values underpin all we do: we support our children to be proud members of our school, respecting themselves, each other, family and community. All children are given the opportunity to succeed through a broad, balanced, challenging and inclusive curriculum. 

Bleak Hill Primary School believes that Physical Education (PE), experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is essential to ensure children attain optimum physical and emotional development and good health. We intend to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical education and in developing life skills. We want to teach children skills to keep them safe such as being able to swim.  We also want to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others as part of an effective team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values. Our curriculum aims to improve the wellbeing and fitness of all children at Bleak Hill, not only through the sporting skills taught, but through the underpinning values and disciplines PE promotes. 

PE at Bleak Hill Primary School provides challenging and enjoyable learning through a range of sporting activities including; fitness, invasion games, net & wall games, strike and field games, gymnastics, dance, swimming and outdoor & adventure. 

The long term plan sets out the PE units which are to be taught throughout the year and ensures that the requirements of the National Curriculum are fully met. 

Pupils participate in two high quality PE lessons each week, covering two sporting disciplines every half term. In addition, children are encouraged to participate in the varied range of extra-curricular activities. Opportunities to participate in physical activities are also provided at Lunch time in the form or basketball, caldron ball, hula-hoops, skipping and the trim trail. 

Children are invited to attend competitive sporting events within the local area. This is an inclusive approach which endeavours to encourage not only physical development but also mental well-being. These events also develop teamwork and leadership skills and are very much enjoyed by the children. 

Each year a small number of Year 6 children are invited to become House Captains/Vice Captains for their colour group and the school. They aim to develop into sporting role models for the younger children.  

Children in Year 6 swim once a week for 6/7 weeks during the Autumn Term.  Children in Year 5 swim once a week for 6 weeks during the Spring Term.   

On days when the children do not have PE they complete a Daily Mile in order to help meet the government target of all children being active for at least 60 minutes a day. (30 minutes in school, 30 minutes at home/after school)

 We help motivate children to participate in a variety of sports through quality teaching that is engaging and fun. From our lessons, our children learn to take responsibility for their own health and fitness, many of whom also enjoy the success of competitive sports. We equip our children with the necessary skills but also aim to develop a love for sport within all children. They will hopefully grow up to live happy and healthy lives utilising the skills and knowledge acquired through PE.

Here you will find some pictures and information about sport and PE at Bleak Hill!

Year 5 welcomed Sale Sharks Community Foundation to participate in wheelchair rugby. The children enjoyed building their knowledge of tag rugby, while becoming more aware of their surroundings in the inclusive sport. They worked on teamwork, passing and moving safely within the chairs. It was a fantastic experience.

Well done to our Year 6 Rugby Team who competed against 8 other schools at Ruskin Drive!

Y6 Rugby 13.10.png

'Firstly, we walked twenty-five minutes to Ruskin Drive and then we played against St Aidens, and we drew 0-0. Then, we won the second match 1-0 against St Ann's. We then won 2-0 against St Julie's. We were tired but we carried on playing. We played the next team and sadly we lost 3-0 but the team we played were really good. We then played another team and we drew 0-0 because a try didn't count. The next game, we won!! Then we had a break. We won the final game! Each game was 7 minutes long and there were 9 schools in total. Altogether we won 4, drew 2 and lost one. As the points were worked out 50% due to how we did in the games and 50% a review of each team by the teams we played. We came 6th overall- better luck next time!' Riley, Cara & Ruby (6J)
