P.E.


The Larkrise PE Programme takes a broader ‘multi-ability’ approach to PE and sport. The ‘multi-abilities’ referred to are: Physical, Social, Personal, Creative, Cognitive and Health.

Because our ultimate aim is to meet the needs of every child, we recognise that it is appropriate to have a flexible approach to their learning. This means that some pupils are taught PE within a different class. This gives them a personal PE plan & ensures PE is a positive, successful experience.

Personal

This refers to an individual’s attitude and approach to learning and how comfortable, confident and motivated they are.

Social

This refers to an individual’s ability to work well, communicate and learn with others.

Cognitive

This refers to an individual’s ability to order and understand, problem solve, apply skills and make appropriate decisions.

Creative

This refers to an individual’s ability to explore, express themselves, use their imagination and develop their own ideas and solutions.

Physical

This refers to the quality of an individual’s fundamental movement skills and their ability to combine and transfer skills effectively in a range of activity and sporting environments.

Health

This refers to an individual’s ability to develop an awareness of themselves and their body and to recognise what changes happen when they exercise. Individuals will explore the benefits of exercise and how activity is accessible to all.

The Larkrise PE philosophy has been developed on the principle that all young people deserve to be IncludedChallenged and Supported within PE and Sport.

To fully engage pupils with severe ASD a curriculum based on EYFS guidelines has been developed. The programme is based on a ‘stage not age’ approach and allows the pupils to explore and lead as much as possible. The pupils are encouraged to develop their communication and social skills through physical and creative activities. A combination of Child Led, Child Initiated and Teacher Led activities are used.

The pupils are given opportunities to be active and interactive, and to improve their skills of coordination, control, manipulation and movement.

  • Interaction

    The pupils are given opportunities to be active and interactive, and to improve their skills of coordination, control, manipulation and movement.

     

  • Learning

    The pupils are supported in using all of their senses to learn about the world around them and to make connections between new information and what they already know.

  • Understanding
