Games & PE

Our P.E. Curriculum aims to engage and inspire all our children to succeed in a range of physical activities. We provide opportunities to help our pupils become physically competent in a way that supports their health and fitness. Through competitive games, gymnastics and dance they develop key skills and competencies. In addition, they are taught how to lead healthy, active lives.

Our lessons are taught by well-trained and knowledgeable staff and aim to be enjoyable, physically demanding, safe and inclusive.

In KS1 the focus is on the children mastering basic movements, balance, agility and co-ordination and applying them in team games, gym and dance. In KS2 they continue to practise their skills whilst collaborating with each other and evaluating their performance, often with the use of ICT.

All children will go swimming and the aim is for them to be able to swim 25m competently and confidently and perform safe self-rescues.

We compete regularly in inter school fixtures and competitions and plan a variety of competitive games and activities throughout the year during lunchtimes. Our lunchtime programme provides a wide selection of activities which complement the taught curriculum.

Furthermore, Saints in the Community run high quality football coaching sessions to both boys and girls 4 times a week as part of our extra-curricular programme. We also work hard to maintain our sporting links with our local secondary school and local colleges.
