Our vision is to provide our pupils with a high-quality PE curriculum with competitive sport and regular physical activity at its core. We aim to ensure our pupils feel physically confident and can transfer fundamental movement skills (agility, balance and coordination) into sporting situations. We feel opportunities to compete in sport and other physical activities builds character and helps to embed values such as fairness and respect and this is something we hope to foster in our pupils.
It is our view that people should develop a lifelong enjoyment in physical activity and consequently this is something we hope to have instilled in our pupils during their time at Phil & Jim.
Across the academic year, all children will experience a broad range of sport as part of the PE curriculum. There are five main areas that will be covered. They are as follows:
- Games – invasion, net and wall, and striking and fielding
- Athletics – indoor and outdoor
- Outdoor Adventure Activities
All our Year 4 students go swimming during the academic year. This is an exciting and rewarding opportunity for the children to develop their skills, in and out of the school context.
