Why our PE curriculum looks like this:
PE at Holy Spirit Catholic Primary School aims to develop a fun, high-quality, ambitious physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel individual’s abilities in competitive sports and other physically-demanding activities. We will provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Our children will have opportunities to compete in sports and other activities that build character and help to embed values such as our four PE values:
BE AMBITIOUS – work hard and never give up on their goals.
BE INSPIRING – set a great example to others.
BE CONNECTED – work well with others and in a team.
BE FAIR – treat people equally and think of others.
PE at Holy Spirit is an imperative element of the curriculum, which develops a need for healthy life styles, a balanced diet, a positive growth mind-set and the resilience to persevere with activities that may once have felt too difficult. We are passionate about the need to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others as part of a team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed lifelong values. Working as a team is at the heart of everything that we do.
