At Kilkhampton Junior and Infant School we won the Sport Silver Award in 2023 and are aiming to receive the
Gold award in 2024! We are committed to children receiving at least the statutory amount of PE tuition and for every child in Key Stages One and Two to attend a sports club or represent the school at a sporting fixture or festival over the course of an academic year.
Children have a range of sporting opportunities throughout the year and are taught skills in the following areas of PE:
In Year 5 and 6 all children receive swimming lessons.
We also use our feeder secondary school, Budehaven to provide us with sports coaching, clubs and sporting festivals.
To ensure high standards of teaching in physical education, we implement a curriculum that is progressive throughout the whole school. Physical education is a foundation subject in the National Curriculum and at Kilkhampton Junior and Infant School implementation of the physical education curriculum is in line with 2014 Primary National Curriculum requirements for KS1 and KS2 and the Foundation Stage Curriculum in England. This provides a broad framework and outlines the knowledge and skills taught in each key stage.
At Kilkhampton, we use Arena as a cohesive scheme of work addressing the statutory aspects of the National Curriculum. In Early Years and Key Stage 1, the focus is primarily on fundamental movement skills. In Key Stage 2 we build on these skills and apply them in game situations though a broad range of sports.
At Kilkhampton Junior and Infant School we are:
Special Educational Needs Disability (SEND) / Pupil Premium / Higher Attainers
All children will have Quality First Teaching. Any children with identified SEND or in receipt of pupil premium funding may have work additional to and different from their peers in order to access the curriculum dependent upon their needs. As well as this, our school offers a demanding and varied curriculum, providing children with a range of opportunities in order for them to reach their full potential and consistently achieve highly from their starting points.
Further information on implementation will be found in the new Teaching, Learning and Assessment Policy.
