Kader aims for all children to gain confidence, self-esteem, respect, a passion for learning and most of all the belief that their learning holds no boundaries and they can become…the best that they can be.

At Kader Academy, we strive to create a culture which aims to inspire an active generation to enjoy PE, encourage each other and achieve. We provide a safe and supportive environment for children to flourish in a range of different physical activities which is essential in supporting their physical, emotional, spiritual, social and moral development.

We aspire for children to adopt a positive mind-set and believe that anything can be achieved with determination and resilience.
The aim of Physical Education is to promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles. Children are taught to observe and produce the conventions of fair play, honest competition and good sporting behaviour as individual participants, team members and spectators. Thus embedding life-long values such as co-operation, collaboration and equity of play.


At Kader Academy we recognise the importance PE plays in the curriculum and are committed to providing all children with opportunities to engage fully in Physical Education (PE). PE should provide opportunities for all pupils to become physically literate and confident in a way which also supports their health and fitness. Children should acquire not only physical skills, knowledge and understanding, but also the awareness and importance of leading healthy, active lives as well as the values of sportsmanship, fairness and respect through the sports and activities they undertake.

We intend to consistently delivery of high-quality PE lessons which are exciting, challenging and enjoyable and provide many varied earning opportunities:

  • Develop knowledge, skills and understanding across a range of sporting activities.
  • Engage in moderate to intense physical activity over sustained periods of time.
  • Participate in competitive sports and activities.
  • Lead healthy and active lives, picking up positive habits for their future lives.
  • To compete in games and activities in a collaborative team.
  • To promote safe practice in all activities.
  • To use sport to build pupils self-confidence and self-esteem.
  • To encourage involvement in extra-curricular sporting activities and develop community and club links.
  • Increase participation in competitive sports both in and out of school

All children are taught by a qualified Sports Coach. Children from Reception to Year 6 have one, one hour, lesson of PE a week during curriculum time.

Every Friday each child partakes in one hours’ enrichment activity chosen by themselves along with an intra class/intra year group competition in different sports termly, throughout the year that consist of whole class participation before moving into semi-finals and finals. Each half term two Classes also have a Dance lesson each week. In addition to this Year 4 pupils also take part in swimming lessons to ensure basic swimming by having a swimming lesson every day for 2 weeks.

The curriculum at Kader Academy covers the National Curriculum Programmes of Study in PE as stipulated in the PE National Curriculum 2014 document. Pupils develop physical skills, knowledge and understanding as well as learn about fitness, cooperation and fair play.

Activities taught at Kader Academy include dance, gymnastics, fundamental movement skills, games (Softball, Cricket, Tennis, Basketball, Netball, Football, Tag Rugby, Bench Ball, Hockey), athletics, outdoor and adventurous activities –covered during the Marrick Priory residential trip (beck scrambling, rock climbing, abseiling).

To increase opportunities and inspire children to be active, we regularly source outside providers to deliver activities, which would not normally be covered in curriculum time. Such activities have been delivered in NEFA’s and Mrs McNabb’s lunchtime clubs, Tom Burke Academy’s Street Dance Club and Middlesbrough Rugby Clubs classes


By the end of each key stage, pupils are expected to know, apply and understand the matters, skills and processes specified in the relevant programme of study.

Pupils’ are assessed by means of a bought-in bespoke PE Assessment tool to ensure progress is made and end of key stage expectations are met by all children. Children are assessed termly by Mr Laverick with a final result at the end of the Year.

Children will be levelled as either Emerging, Developing, Secure or Exceeding, in accordance with Age Related Expectations as per the Assessment Procedures for the curriculum areas covered.

Swimming will be assessed by the swimming instructors at The Rainbow Centre, Coulby Newham, Middlesbrough. The Curriculum Lead will be responsible for publishing Swimming data on the School Website, as per National Guidance.
