Children are encouraged to develop a positive attitude to PE and realise that it is important to be physically active.
There are three elements to the PE curriculum in Key Stage One:
Outdoor Adventurous Education is an additional element in Key Stage Two.
In Games the children will develop basic skills necessary for simple games, such as space awareness and ball control.
In Gymnastics, they will concentrate on body movements, both on the floor and on apparatus; and in Dance, they will focus on control and co-ordination, as well as responding to rhythms and music in appropriate ways.
We have a large hall as well as the playground and school field and are well resourced with PE equipment.
We take the children to the swimming pool for lessons from Year 2 onwards and now have four trained swimming teachers on staff.
We frequently have sports coaching opportunities in school including golf, rugby, cricket, multi-sports and basketball, this all takes place during curriculum time.
‘Teach children how they should live and they will remember it all of their lives.’ Proverbs 22:6
Our vision is to provide a secure, happy learning community based upon Christian Values in which each child is encouraged to reach their full potential.
We aim to support the children's developing skills as learners by:
- Providing a secure foundation upon which individuals can grow into independent, challenged learners.
- Stimulating active learning experiences,that develop children's awareness of themselves as learners.
- Valuing every child irrespectve of gender, disability,age, race or culture and ensure that they have an active voice in school and know that their opinions matter.
- Supporting children in succeeding in their learning and finding opportunities to celebrate their success.
- Developing skills of independence, co-operation and self- motivation.
- Contributing to the wider community, both locally and globally.
