Sport and PE

Our Curriculum Intent for PE

The intent of our Physical Education Curriculum is to support our pupil’s physical, emotional and academic development by placing activity and sport at the centre of our school community.
We aim to support our children to become physically literate through the development of a healthy and active lifestyle. To do this we aim to equip our children with basic transferable physical skills focussing on developing balance, movement, co-ordination, agility, strength, creativity and stamina across the curriculum.
By basing our Physical Education curriculum in our Catholic faith we hope to support the creation of a co-operative,
motivated and resilient community of learners which celebrates success and learns from setbacks. Based in mutual respect and a focus on teamwork we hope to instil in our children a love of competition which will lead to lifelong participation in sport.
We believe that the impact of physical activity on our pupil’s lives is immeasurably positive with benefits including weight loss, improved cognitive function and development, reduce levels of stress, anxiety and depression and improved mental, social and emotional wellbeing.
