Physical Education

Our PE Curriculum

Welcome to the Physical Education (PE) curriculum at Skegness Junior Academy, where we believe in nurturing healthy, happy students with hearts pumping full of energy and enthusiasm! Our PE program is designed to inspire a lifelong love for physical activity, fostering not only physical fitness, but also promoting mental well-being and a positive attitude towards a healthy lifestyle. We ensure that progression is clear in this subject, through using the 3 pillars of progression: motor competence; rules, strategies and tactics; and healthy participation.

Our mantra, "Healthy, happy, hearts pumping!" encapsulates the spirit of our PE curriculum. We aim to instill in our children a holistic understanding of health and well-being, emphasising the importance of both physical and mental fitness. Through a variety of engaging activities and games, we encourage our pupils to explore different forms of exercise, developing fundamental movement skills and promoting a sense of enjoyment in being active.

PE is delivered by specialist teachers from JB Sports Coaching, as well as our teachers throughout the week. Our specialist coaches also provide on site swimming in our pop-up swimming pool in Term 2 every year (please visit our Swimming Website Page for further information). Our PE sessions are both indoor and outdoor for all year groups. They focus on mastering skills and build key movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination. Pupils are encouraged to participate in team games and to develop  tactics for being an effective team member. We ensure wider participation in the community by involvement in interschool sports and swimming tournaments, local authority and Trust based competitions.

At Skegness Junior Academy, we believe that physical education goes beyond the sports hall or sports field. It is about building resilience, teamwork, and confidence. Through a diverse range of sports and activities, children have the opportunity to discover their strengths, challenge themselves, and develop a positive mindset towards physical challenges.

Our PE curriculum is carefully crafted to ensure that it caters to the varied interests and abilities of our children. From team sports to individual activities, we provide a well-rounded program that encourages inclusivity and promotes a sense of belonging for every pupil.

We understand that a healthy lifestyle is not only about physical activity, but also encompasses nutrition and overall well-being. Our PE curriculum integrates these aspects to empower children with the knowledge and skills to make informed choices that contribute to a balanced and healthy lifestyle.

Join us at Skegness Junior Academy as we embark on a journey of movement, joy, and well-being. Our PE curriculum is not just about exercise; it's about nurturing healthy, happy individuals with hearts pumping full of vitality and a zest for life!

Healthy, happy, hearts pumping!
