At St. Anne’s Church of England (Aided) Primary School, we recognise the importance of PE and the role it has to play in promoting positive attitudes towards future healthy lifestyles. Physical Education, when experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is essential to ensure children attain optimum physical and emotional development and good health. We intend to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical education, that develop life skills, and are engaging and accessible for all. We want to teach children skills to keep them safe such as being able to swim. We also want to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others as part of an effective team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values. Our curriculum aims to improve the wellbeing and fitness of all children at St Anne’s, not only through the sporting skills taught, but through the underpinning values and disciplines PE promotes. Furthermore, PE will provide opportunities for pupils to explore our school values of perseverance, responsibility, forgiveness, acceptance, honesty and respect.
We help motivate children to participate in a variety of sports through quality teaching that is engaging and fun. From our lessons, our children learn to take responsibility for their own health and fitness, many of whom also enjoy the success of competitive sports. We equip our children with the necessary skills and a love for sport. They will hopefully grow up to live happy and healthy lives utilising the skills and knowledge acquired through PE.
