At More Park Catholic Primary School we aim to foster the skills necessary to develop the mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing of the children. Physical fitness and wellbeing are key to good academic development and encouraging a healthy mental and physical lifestyle teaches children to have self-discipline, to work hard, to show resilience and have the determination to believe that anything can be achieved. Our intent is to teach children life skills that will positively impact on their future by delivering high-quality teaching and varied learning opportunities that inspire all children to try and experience a range of activities and embed life-long values.
Weekly high-quality PE lessons for KS1 and KS2, supported by both class teachers and sports professionals, are implemented before, during and after school hours in order to maximise the opportunities for children throughout the week. Our curriculum aims to improve all facets of the children’s lives by underpinning the values and disciplines PE promotes alongside the high-level gospel values always present within the school.
At More Park we aim to offer a range of age and stage appropriate opportunities to maximise the potential to develop the physical literacy of all pupils. Physical literacy describes the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding that prepares children for lifelong participation.
Currently all children from Year R to 6 have 2 sessions of PE a week which give a total of 2 hours per week. One session is an allocated gym time, the other allows for a broad range of outdoor activities on our extensive playing field. We have specialist sports teachers that visit the school twice a week to run classes with both KS1 and KS2 year groups.
