'Never say never, because limits, like fears, are often just an illusion' - Michael Jordan
We believe that Physical Education is so important in the development of children’s physical, social and leadership skills, enabling each child to excel across the wider curriculum. We believe we can capture children’s interest and enjoyment of PE at an early age, providing outstanding PE lessons, helping to lay the foundations for our children to develop healthy and active lifestyles in the long term.
All children receive a minimum of two hours of curriculum PE per week, taught by both the class teacher and Mr Brandreth (our Sports Coach).
Our PE activities are planned to encourage the children to develop a positive attitude towards keeping fit and healthy, providing opportunities for them to participate in team activities and to develop their skills through a range of physical activities. All lessons provide a progressive PE curriculum, differentiated appropriately to accelerate children’s physical skills and provide challenges to all abilities.
We also have close links with the Youth Sports Trust, and are developing the use of My Personal Best - an award winning resource that enables teachers to use PE to teach skills such as co-operation, responsibility and resilience, helping children to recognise and transfer them to other lessons, to life in school and to their wider environment.
