Vision Statement for Physical Education
We will inspire our children to be passionate about their physical education and confident to be the best athletes they can be.
We believe that P.E. is an essential part of the children’s learning at primary school. It helps them become fit, healthy and active. Our aim is to have an inclusive and broad range of sporting activities available to all children. All staff aspire to equip children with the skills and ambition to potentially become future athletes. Our P.E. lessons are enjoyable, competitive and active. Teachers are passionate about promoting healthy lifestyles and improving the fitness of our children by raising the profile of PE and sport around school.
The Government Obesity Plan recommend primary school children undertake at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day. In school, we are striving to achieve 30 minutes of activity a day in school as part of a healthy lifestyle. To support this recommendation we use ‘active breaks’ within the school day in order to reduce sedentary behaviour and increase physical activity outside of timetabled curriculum PE. This includes children participating in a range of activities including skipping, dancing and The Daily Mile. This is also facilitated by Sports Leaders, who lead active sessions for children at lunch times.
As pupil’s of Christ the King, we:
– Are passionate about improving health and well-being
– Are keen to do our best
– Are actively involved in competitions
– Have range of curricular and extra-curricular sports clubs
– Have fun in our P.E. lessons
Remember, PE is the only subject that makes your heart race!
