PE Statement of Intent
At St Teresa’s we aim to provide a PE curriculum that pupils from Reception to Year 6 not only enjoy but also allows them to experience a range of activities that help them to develop their health, fitness and wellbeing. We intend to offer a high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. Our curriculum will provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
The national curriculum for PE aims to ensure that all pupils:
develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
are physically active for sustained periods of time
engage in competitive sports and activities
lead healthy, active lives
Our long term PE plan has been formulated to ensure progressive skill in a range of team, individual and athletic sports.
Weekly 1 MILE 8.30am club sessions for upper Key Stage 2.
Participation in district and city- wide competitions and dance performances.
Our Y3 class go swimming every week for the whole year to ensure they meet the minimum expectation for KS2 swimming ability when they leave our school. (Postponed in 2020-21)
Weekly after school clubs include – basketball, gymnastics, netball, football.
We also link maths and physical activity in our weekly ‘Maths on the Move’ sessions.
