Bengeworth CE Academy believes that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is a unique and vital contributor to a pupil's physical development and well-being. Our scheme of Real PE for physical education, alongside specific sport skill based learning and development, aims to provide a well-rounded curriculum for all children to access and thrive in. This broad and balanced physical education curriculum is intended to provide for pupils' increasing self-confidence in their ability to manage themselves and their bodies within a variety of movement situations. Progressive learning objectives, combined with sympathetic and varied teaching approaches, endeavour to provide stimulating, enjoyable, satisfying and appropriately challenging learning experiences for all pupils. Through the selection of suitably differentiated and logically developed tasks, it is intended that pupils, irrespective of their innate ability, will enjoy success and be motivated to further develop their individual potential.
A balance of individual, paired and group activities, co-operative, collaborative and competitive situations, aims to cater for the preferences, strengths and needs of every pupil. Such activities, experienced within a range of activity, aim to promote a broad base of movement knowledge, skills and understanding. They also allow the development of a pupil's ability to work independently and to respond appropriately and sympathetically to others, irrespective of their age, gender, cultural or ethnic background.
