“Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it” Michael Jordan
PE Curriculum Intent
We aim for our pupils to demonstrate determination and resilience to practise skills within a wide range of different activities and situations, both independently and collaboratively, and apply these skills to achieve improving levels of performance. Through both lessons and competitive opportunities, pupils learn the value of team-work, resilience and mutual respect. We aspire for pupils to develop a positive mind-set and a desire to achieve their personal goals as well as those of their team.
They develop the ability to take the initiative, lead, organise, officiate and instil good sporting attitudes in themselves and others.
Our pupils’ ability to remain physically active for sustained periods of time is encouraged. Pupils discover the importance of exercise in promoting long-term health and emotional well-being.
They understand additional factors in leading a healthy lifestyle, including eating sensibly and avoiding harmful substances.
Pupils continue swimming lessons until they demonstrate the ability to swim at least 25m, and know how to remain safe in and around water.
Through this intent, our pupils are inspired to lead a physically fit and healthy lifestyle, and recognise the lifelong benefits to themselves.
