The ‘why’ of our philosophy for PESA is to take the children on a high quality four year physical education journey. Embedded in this is the aim of ensuring that physical activity (PA) becomes a long term habit i.e. an infinite role in their lives to unlock and maintain its lifelong benefits. We want to create a social mission of ‘Don’t stop moving’ that brings a simple meaning to our PESA aims. PE for living life everyday.
Our PESA curriculum is supportive and inclusive for all children; that values movement, positive attitudes and thinking skills. Our aim is to provide high quality educational experiences that are authentic and meaningful to their lives so they can be educated citizens allowing each child to lead an autonomous, authentic life, fully in touch with their feelings and body in a crowded world of media, cultural and social expectations.
The school timetable ensures that each academic year the Children receive two hourly lessons of PE per week. All year groups take part in swimming for a full term with lessons of 30 minutes each Friday.
We use a models based practice (MBP) as opposed to the traditional one size fits all sports technique and multi activity approach. Medium term plans of 12-14 lessons known as ‘blocking’ support this curriculum. In our experience and from research these longer units have been seen as an effective way of engaging more children in deeper learning to reach the learning outcomes of MAT (Moving, Attitude and Thinking).

All year groups receive one full term of swimming lessons at Moberly Swimming Pool. Lessons are 30 minutes. Swimming is a curricular activity and as such pupils cannot opt out of the lessons.
By the end of year 6, we want to ensure that every child can swim at least 25 metres.
The importance of learning swimming and water safety is a key part of growing up. It allows young people to have fun in the water with family and friends. Learning about water safety is an essential life-saving skill and is vital to staying safe in and around water. Knowing how to swim provides access to many other water-related activities and careers.
