PE (Physical Education)
Inspire • Enrich • Enjoy • Succeed
At STW, we fully recognise the importance of a healthy and active lifestyle, not just from a physical perspective but in order to best support our mental health and wellbeing. Our P.E. Curriculum is underpinned by our commitment to ensuring that our children enjoy sports and being active. Through careful strategic planning, we seek to provide our children with the opportunity to experience a wide range of activities, both individual and in teams, with the hope that they will all find something which they enjoy and want to pursue beyond childhood.
In developing their physical skills, we want our children to master basic movements, develop good coordination and agility, and demonstrate a willingness to achieve their personal best. We believe it is important to participate in interschool competitions, so our pupils experience the thrill of competing, feel proud to represent our school, and learn about winning and losing gracefully. We know that sport is not just a game; it can bring opportunities to build friendships, develop problem-solving and team-working skills, improve general wellbeing, and much more. We appreciate that children’s interests will differ; they will enjoy different types of sports and we fully accept our responsibility to help each child find a sport they enjoy. In order to support this, we pledge to provide opportunities wider than those outlined in the National Curriculum.
