The PE curriculum at St Mary’s is designed to promote an understanding of an active healthy lifestyle. Teachers provide children with opportunities to engage in sports and fitness coaching, increasing children’s physical development and wellbeing. The teaching of PE enables all children to access the PE curriculum and encourages children to develop relationships with peers through team games and competitive sport. Teachers aim to build resilience and nurture children to express their ideas and opinions whilst supporting their peers. PE lessons ensure challenge for the more able students through questioning and the use of high order vocabulary. Children are taught the skills needed to succeed in sports and have opportunities to develop and build on these each year.
