🥇St Teresa’s PE and School Sport provision is designed to develop our pupils’ experience and understanding of PE, physical movement, and the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
🥇We aim to prepare children for life, equipping them with the skills to embrace physical activity and sport in a safe and enjoyable way.
🥇We want all pupils to be ‘PE literate’ and be able to confidently express themselves through movement.
🥇Lessons allow pupils to work as part of a team, build resilience from mini failures, strive for personal bests (PB), and be proud and celebrate their achievements in a respectful manner.
We have identified 5 key indicators to focus our curriculum and help us measure the impact of its delivery:
- The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school.
- The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvementtowards our curriculum drivers.
- Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.
- Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.
- Increased participation in competitive sport within and beyond our community.
