P.E

 Why is PE important?

St Elizabeth’s, believes that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is vital and unique in its contribution to a pupil’s physical social, thinking and health development. The physical education curriculum aims to provide for pupils’ increasing self- confidence through an ability to manage themselves successfully in a variety of situations. A balance of individual, team, co-operative and competitive activities aims to cater for individual pupil’s needs and abilities.

 

By the end of EYFS, Key Stage 1 and 2, St Elizabeth’s pupils will know how to, apply and understand the matters, skills and processes needed in dance, gymnastics, games and swimming. All children will have 2hours minimum PE each week.

 

When and how is PE taught?

Our planning is based on progressive learning objectives which, combined with varied and flexible teaching styles, endeavour to provide appropriate, stimulating, challenging and enjoyable learning situations for all pupils. The scheme aims to promote an understanding of the many benefits of exercise, through a balanced range of relevant activities. Physical education is considered as a vehicle to facilitate access to cross-curricular themes, skills and dimensions, rather than a subject concerned exclusively with the acquisition of motor skills and techniques.

 

 How many hours of P.E do our children do? 

In 2019,  the government recommended the following amount of physical activity to be completed each day for good health and wellbeing of all"
