P.E.

PE at Christ Church aims to develop and deliver a fun, high quality Physical Education curriculum which inspires all pupils to succeed and excel individual’s abilities in competitive situations and other physically demanding activities. We hope that through this that children will develop a healthy lifestyle, a balanced diet, increase in confidence and also understand how to use and apply this knowledge to impact upon their own physical activity.



P.E  Overview - Progression and Breadth of Study



Purpose Of Study


We aim that through the teaching of PE, our children will have mastered  - 

• The ability to acquire new knowledge and skills exceptionally well and develop an in-depth understanding of PE.

• The willingness to practise skills in a wide range of different activities and situations, alone, in small groups and in teams and to apply these skills in chosen activities to achieve exceptionally high levels of performance.

• High levels of physical fitness.

• A healthy lifestyle, achieved by eating sensibly, avoiding smoking, drugs and alcohol and exercising regularly.

• The ability to remain physically active for sustained periods of time and an understanding of the importance of this in promoting long-term health and well-being. 

• The ability to take the initiative and become excellent young leaders, organising and officiating, and evaluating what needs to be done to improve, and motivating and instilling excellent sporting attitudes in others. 

• Exceptional levels of originality, imagination and creativity in their techniques, tactics and choreography, knowledge of how to improve their own and others’ performance and the ability to work independently for extended periods of time without the need of guidance or support.

• A keen interest in PE. A willingness to participate eagerly in every lesson, highly positive attitudes and the ability to make informed choices about engaging fully in extra-curricular sport.

• The ability to swim at least 25 metres before the end of Year 6 and knowledge of how to remain safe in and around water.
