PE at St Giles
At St Giles we all work towards the common goal that all pupils leave our school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle, with lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
We use Sports Premium funding on the following areas:
- Increasing the confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.
- Offering a broader experience of a range of sports and activities to all pupils.
- Engaging all pupils in regular physical activity – kick starting healthy lifestyles.
- Increasing participation in competitive sport.
- Raising the profile of PE and sport across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement.
PE and sport develops our children’s knowledge and skills, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. These areas of the curriculum develop an understanding in children of their bodies in action and promote positive attitudes towards health and well-being. This enables children to make informed choices about physical activity throughout their lives.
Through our planned and sequenced curriculum, we aim:
- To develop a whole school approach to the teaching of PE and sport, underpinned by our school values.
- To make PE and sport enjoyable and accessible for all
- To embed the physical literacy, emotional and thinking skills needed to succeed in PE and sport, with its benefits across the whole curriculum
- To improve standards of achievement in PE and sport
- To promote physical exercise and healthy-lifestyle choices
We want our children to aim for the stars. We introduce them to a wide range of sports in the hope that every child will find the sport for them. We bring sporting individuals to their attention that have been successful in their chosen fields, in the hope that the children will see that they can jump any barriers that might get in their way.
