Caring for Others ✝ Achieving Excellence
“In order for man to succeed in life, God provided him with two means, education and physical activity. Not separately, one for the soul and the other for the body, but for the two together. With these means, man can attain perfection.”
In our school the teaching of physical education aims to inspire a life long consideration of personal wellbeing. Our high-quality curriculum, delivered by a specialist sports coach, ensures that pupils have the opportunity to participate, succeed and excel in a broad range of physical activities. All children take part in a minimum of two hours of high-quality PE and sporting activities each week.
Our school values and learning powers support the development of rounded citizens and are central to the role of sports person. Unity, respect and self-belief are all developed through the teaching and practise of fundamental movement skills – agility, balance and co-ordination – and applying these skills to an increasingly wider range of physical activities.
A well-balanced programme of sporting activities is provided for the children that includes opportunities for expressive and creative movement through dance, as well as gymnastics, swimming, athletics, games, and outdoor and adventurous pursuits. Learning through co-operative and competitive activities helps to promote an understanding of inter-personal relationships. Children take part in sporting activities within the school, and with other schools, including local and county tournaments and competitions. Physical Education is enriched through a wide range of well-attended after-school clubs and activities including football, athletics, netball and boccia. Such opportunities enable pupils to develop personal and social skills as well as preparing them for leisure activities in adult life.
