Our high quality PE curriculum offers a wide variety of activities both in and out of curriculum time. Children learn that being active is fun and an essential part of a healthy lifestyle.
At the beginning of their school life children learn and explore basic movement skills, they develop these skills and leave as confident movers able to play a wide range of sports.
To enable us to do this, we have begun using a new scheme of work called 'RealPE'.
”The ‘Real PE’ programme has been developed to give ALL children the physical literacy, emotional and thinking skills to achieve in PE, Sport and life. It places the learner at the heart of what we do with the ultimate goal of children feeling valued, included, challenged and supported in their learning.”
'RealPE' is a scheme of work by Create Development which encourages a broad, balanced, child - centred approach to P.E. and Sport.
'RealPE' praises behaviour not skill, passes the responsibility of the lesson to the learner and encourages success, not only within a P.E. lessons but also to other lessons and everyday life.
