PE Curriculum Statement

“Do you know what my favorite part of the game is? The opportunity to play.”

 Mike Singletary 

Intent

PE at St Andrew’s aims to develop the knowledge, skills and capabilities necessary for mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing in our children now and for their future. We encourage lifelong care of pupils’ health and wellbeing by promoting our Christian values such as friendship and teamwork within our physical education.

Through our curriculum and our morning/after school clubs we provide opportunities to experience a variety of sports and activities. In EYFS and KS1 we aim to ensure that pupils have a strong foundation within the fundamental skills and offer a variety of carefully considered activities to further enhance these skills.

It is our intent to teach children life skills that will positively impact on their future. We aim to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical activities.
