Greenacres Primary Academy (South Pennine Academies)

Respect, Responsibility and Really Good Manners

Our Physical Education Intent


PE is delivered by a mixture of class teachers and specialist teachers. Our PE sessions include both indoor and outdoor for
all children, including a combination of games, dance and gumnastics. They focus on mastering basic 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 simple tactics for being an effective team member. Key Stage 2 pupils will also complete lessons inside and outside at other facilities including the local swimming pool, gymnasium at Waterhead  Academy. Swimming is introduced to the timetable in Year 4. We ensure wider participation
in the community by involvement in interschool sports and swimming tournaments, local authority
and Trust based competitions as well as the annual sports days and bi-annual football competitions.
