How Do We Teach PE at Irk Valley?

Curriculum Overview

PE Kit and Expectations

The following are our expectations in all PE lessons to ensure pupils participate in fun, engaging and safe activities:

  • Suitable school PE kit should be worn for each lesson. If school kit is not provided, children will still participate in the lesson unless school uniform is not appropriate for the activity - children will then undertake coaching or officiating roles.

  • Head scarves should be tightly secured or removed for PE. A specialist, tight-fitting head scarf can be a suitable alternative.

  • All children taking part in indoor PE should be barefoot unless the activity requires the wearing of pumps / trainers (basketball, athletics, indoor hockey, indoor football etc)

  • All children with verrucas should wear pumps.

  • It is important that children have suitable footwear (appropriate to the activity) to minimise the chances of injury.

  • Every child must have a school PE kit. They should bring it into school at the beginning of a half term and take it home at the end of a half term for cleaning.

School PE Kit

  • plain white t-shirt
  • plain black shorts or plain black joggers
  • change of socks - preferably long  black games socks
  • sturdy trainers or astro-turf boots (gym pumps offer little protection in games sessions)
  • plain black sweater or school sweater maybe worn in colder winter months at the discretion of the teacher
  • woolly hats and gloves may also be worn in colder months
  • hooded tops or coats shouldn't be worn as they pose a risk in games

 

All of the above items can be affordably purchased at Sports Direct, Primark, Tescos or online at such outlets as MM Direct.
