Physical Education (PE)
A wide range of activities are delivered in school which aim to engage and inspire all children. We are also committed to attempting to ensure that all children receive 2 hours of quality PE per week.
Over the year each child will participate in games, athletics, dance and gymnastic activities. In addition to these pupils in Key Stage 2 also participate in Outdoor and Adventurous activities. Each teacher aims to teach these areas where it is most suitable for their class taking account of the topics they are teaching that year and taking the opportunity to make links between PE and other areas of the curriculum where possible. If no links can be made teachers plan to teach PE alongside the topics being taught.
Broad Square is a member of the Liverpool Swimming Programme. This involves all pupils in Key Stage 2 taking part in weekly swimming sessions for one term a year with the aim of all pupils being able to swim 25 metres by the end of Year 6, this swimming lesson is additional to the weekly PE lesson. PE is supported by the local community and the Liverpool School’s Sports Partnership – funded by the Sport’s Grant – this provides a weekly sports coach and training for and entry into sporting competitions.
