Physical Education

At Crampton we believe in giving all pupils, irrespective of their academic or physical ability, the opportunity to discover and develop their physical potential through a balanced and developmental programme of within both curriculum and out of school hours learning. 

Crampton Primary School believes that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is a unique and vital contributor to a pupil’s physical and well- being. A broad and balanced physical education curriculum is intended to provide pupils’ increasing self-confidence in their ability to manage themselves and their bodies within a variety of movement situations. Progressive learning objectives, combined with sympathetic and varied teaching approaches, endeavor to provide stimulating, enjoyable, satisfying and appropriately challenging learning experiences for all pupils. Through the selection of suitably differentiated and logically developed tasks, it is intended that pupils, irrespective of their innate ability, will enjoy success and be motivated to further develop their individual potential.

A balance of individual, paired and group activities, in co-operative, collaborative and competitive situations, aims to cater for the preferences, strengths and needs of every pupil.
Such activities, experienced within a range of areas of activity, aim to promote a broad base of movement knowledge, skills and understanding. They are also desirous of developing a pupil’s ability to work independently, and to respond appropriately and sympathetically to others, irrespective of their age, gender, cultural or ethnic background.

The activities offered and the teaching approaches adopted seek to provide pupils with opportunities to develop their creative and expressive abilities, through improvisation and problem-solving. Pupils are encouraged to appreciate the importance of a healthy and fit body, and begin to understand those factors that affect health and fitness.

Swimming

 

Swimming is a statutory part of the National Curriculum. Therefore, swimming lessons are compulsory for all pupils.

 

At Crampton Primary School, pupils participate in Year 6.

 


The Castle Leisure Centre, Elephant and Castle, is used for lessons and fully qualified swimming teachers and lifeguards are employed.

 

In line with ASA (National governing body for swimming) guidelines pupils should wear appropriate costumes for swimming that confirm to safety, cultural and teaching requirements. It is important that swimming clothing is relatively tight fitting to minimise the effect of drag in the water. Pupils are required to wear a swimming hat and to remove all jewellery before entering the pool.
 

 

Pupils are taught to:

  • Swim competently and confidently
  • use a range of strokes eg. front crawl, back stroke and breaststroke
  • Perform safe self-rescue

 

Children at Crampton are expected to:

  • Attend every session and are expected to come with their full kit
  • Wear a swimming hat. This is for safety and hygiene reasons.
