Physical Education: Subject Leader - Mrs Horrigan
PE inspires you to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. It provides opportunities for you to become physically confident in a way which supports your health and fitness now, and in your future life. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness, discipline and respect. It also promotes good mental health and boosts your performance in the classroom too.
At St. Walburga’s , we recognise the difference that physical education can make to the pupils in our school. We strive to maintain health and fitness throughout the academic year, therefore. These include a range of sporting activities where pupils will have the opportunity to express their passion for PE and improve their skills and knowledge. We have an assortment of facilities within school including sports equipment and indoor apparatus which can be used during our lessons. Over time, children will work both independently and in groups, learning the importance of staying active. At St Walburga’s we offer a wide range of after school clubs and lunchtime clubs throughout the year. These are ran by both St Walburga’s staff and other agencies. All of our sport clubs are available to both KS1 & KS2 and run on separate days.
At St Walburga’s Primary School, we ensure that our PE curriculum is progressive and allows children to develop fundamental skills and apply them to a variety of sports and activities.
All children are provided with the skills and given opportunities to demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best. Our pupils are physically active and this has positive implications on their learning in the classroom.
Children understand how to lead a healthy lifestyle and understand the importance of exercise.
We hope children enjoy PE and develop a love of sport, and physical activity, that they pursue outside of school and in future life outside of primary school.
All pupils understand the values and importance of fair play and being a good sportsperson.
Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed our school values.
