Physical Education Curriculum Intent
At St Michael’s, we offer a diverse range of sporting and physical opportunities, which enables children to develop their fundamental movement skills and increase their competence and confidence. This is accomplished in three ways:
- Firstly, our curriculum provides children with opportunities to develop the core knowledge and skills necessary to participate, and over time excel, in a broad range of sporting activities.
- Next, we develop children’s stamina so they are able to be physically active for a sustained period of time. We then aim to provide opportunities for children to use these skills to develop a tactical awareness of sport, an understanding of how to work as a team and an appreciation of good sportsmanship.
- Finally, we aim for all children to have had experience of a range of competitive sports and the opportunity to represent St Michael’s in interschool competitions.
By the time they leave St Michael’s, our curriculum aims to support pupils’ in developing a lifelong enthusiasm for sport and a desire to lead a healthy, active life and the skills and knowledge needed to thrive at sport in secondary school and beyond.
