Physical Education at Stillness

Stillness ensures that a high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities is taught throughout all year groups. The PE curriculum provides opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness.  Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect and therefore the children at Stillness have access to inter and intra school competitions.

Stillness are a part of the Little Leaders Programme where we attend sports tournaments and compete against other schools. We were very successful in 2015-2016 being placed in a variety of different competitions. This year already the Y6 mixed rugby team came second in the inter borough competition. There is both a girls and boys school football team made up of children from both Y5 and Y6. These children play in the Lewisham League in Blackheath. Children in year four have the opportunity to go swimming, at Forest Hill Baths, once a week for a whole term. The children really develop their skills and confidence during this time and a high percentage of children reach the targets of swimming a distance of at least 25m, using a range of strokes effectively and can perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.

The highlight of the year is the sports day which is held at Kings Ground. This is a chance for the children to show off their skills in both field and track events, and to take part in fun events too. Parents are encouraged to come and see their children compete in this lovely sporting venue.

At Stillness we encourage children to join clubs outside school to further their sporting adventure. We currently have both girls and boys playing football for clubs outside school, a girl’s netball team and children doing exercise such as roller blading and gymnastics.  Children from our school also attend swimming, athletics and tennis clubs outside of school where they can continue to develop their own interest and expertise in their chosen sport.

The new curriculum incorporates a varied programme of dance, gymnastics, athletics and orienteering and a variety of team games. Children are taught 2 hours of PE a week and the scheme of work ensure pupils are taught to:

  • use running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination
  • play competitive games, modified where appropriate [for example, badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders and tennis], and apply basic principles suitable for attacking and defending
  • develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance [for example, through athletics and gymnastics]
  • perform dances using a range of movement patterns
  • take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team
  • compare their performances with previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best.
