PE at St Michael’s
Name of Lead: Mrs Forbes
“I’ve failed over and over and over again in life but that is why I succeed.”
The curriculum here at St Michael’s, underpinned by the National Curriculum, holds our children and their aspirations, environment and development at its heart. Whilst allowing them to build their knowledge, skills and resilience, it also prepares them for their future as citizens of Liverpool and the wider world. We embrace our children’s spiritual needs through our mission values whilst celebrating their cultural diversity and identity.
By the time our children reach the end of their primary journey we endeavour for them to have the ability to communicate effectively using a broad and varied vocabulary, having being exposed to a wide range of literature and a plethora of life enriching experiences.
Year-on-year, children will build on their knowledge and skills to enable them to unlock new learning and explore their talents and interests.
PE at St Michael’s inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. It provides opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
·At St Michael’s children have many opportunities to compete in various competitive sports. This helps build children’s resilience and perseverance.
·We have high quality coaches leading our PE sessions which helps teachers/support staff develop their own CPD in this area.
Areas for Development
·PE kits are still not being worn by all pupils; a possible suggestion of school tracksuit worn on set days for PE.
·To improve the level of competition we enter as a school. It is a suggestion to have a possible rota for staff to support PE leads with the entering of a vast array of events
