Intent Our mission at St Benedict’s is to improve and increase the quality and quantity of high quality PE for all pupils, to show how PE can enhance pupils’ attainment and achievement and to create pathways for them to continue to be active beyond school.
Starting in the Early Years and working through KS1, we believe it is crucial for all children to have an understanding of how their own body works. A child should have awareness and control of their body through Agility, Balance and Coordination (ABC’s), the fundamentals of Physical Education. Once a child has awareness and control of these three areas, they are then able to develop their skill set. Children are introduced to different games that involve team building (social development) as well as being able to understand and follow rules.
As the children move into KS2, we want them to be able to apply those fundamental skills (ABC’s) into a rich variety of new games and sports. The children at St. Benedict’s will be given the opportunity to engage in a range of strike and field, invasion, and attack and defence games and sports. At St. Benedict’s, we believe it is vital to provide as many opportunities for children to engage in Physical Education as possible. We offer a wide range of extra-curricular sporting activities such as football, tag-rugby, tennis and dance.
Impact Our PE curriculum results in active and fit children who have the opportunity to excel in their own individual area of strength. Our PE curriculum enables children to work together as a team and compete in a healthy and mature way.
