Our PE curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils develop the fundamental skills and competence to excel in a wide range of physical activities by providing a broad & balanced curriculum with opportunities for all to be enjoyed. We allow pupils to learn about themselves, the importance of a healthy lifestyle, self-expression and concepts such as fair play and respect. This all contributes to the development of a range of important cognitive skills such as decision making, analysis, and social skills such as teamwork and communication.
Creativity is driven through our Dance curriculum which often links to topics or we offer dance styles of particular interest to the children such as Street Dance, Rock and Roll and The Jive! Teachers enthuse and inspire pupils to participate in physical activity both in and beyond the curriculum.
The PE curriculum is complemented by a good range of traditional and new or alternative sporting activities before, during and after school. Children in KS2 are given the opportunity to apply their learning to competitive sports and activities. A love of the outdoors is embedded at Griffe Field both on and off site. Residential trips to Castleton and Swanage offer opportunities that encourage children to take risks, develop social and teamwork skills and have a jolly good time!
