PE
 
What will our sportspeople, athletes, swimmers be able to do when they leave us? 
 
We are striving to develop the foundations for all of our sportspeople to have a positive lifelong passion for being active and leading a healthy life as well as understanding the positive relationship between physical activity and mental health.
 
By the end of their time at St Mary's CofE (Aided) Primary School our Year 6 sportspeople will have developed an increasing level of fundamental skills, development and fitness. We would also love them to build on their past experiences and incorporate new experiences, ensuring that every child is challenged to be on track to reach their full physical potential.
 
We want to ensure that our sportspeople develop a love of PE by accessing a varied and rich diet of different activities where fundamental skills are linked throughout. We want them to succeed and excel in competitive and physically demanding activities but ensure that good sportsmanship. From a young age, children will understand the importance of health and the benefits that eating healthy foods and exercise can have on their body.
 
By the time they leave us, the children would have used our own school swimming pool and will be able to swim at least 25 metres as well as to be able to use a range of effective strokes and perform safe self – rescue in different water based situations.
