Vision Statement:

At St Anne’s, our aim and vision towards PE is to deliver a high quality, broad and balanced curriculum as well as providing challenging and fun sessions for our children using the correct resources to aid them in their learning and development. PE should be an integral part of the whole school curriculum and one that staff, pupils and parents understand and can contribute to. It can ensure our children are physically and mentally healthy and develop to become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens of the future.

The children will apply our key SCORE Values into their lessons delivered by staff – Self Esteem, Commitment, Organisation, Resilience and Excellence.

Our PE curriculum will improve emotional well-being, reduce challenging behaviour, increase attendance and develop key skills such as leadership, confidence, social and team building skills. This also perfectly mirrors our own school mission statement; ‘Learn To Love, Love To Learn.’ The curriculum will be inclusive and ensure that pupils of all abilities can access the range of activities we offer and that they are physically active for sustained periods of time in order to encourage them to lead healthy, active lives.

Every term, our school will be open to participate in different sporting clubs before and after school times to give children access and broaden their horizons to a wider variety of sports and opportunities. This will help encourage more children to continue playing sport as well as creating a pathway towards competitive and elite sport. We also hope this encourages more of our children to develop a love, passion and enthusiasm for PE and Sport.

Across the school academic year, the children in different year groups will take part in a variety of sporting tournaments and events against different schools. It provides our pupils with opportunities to participate in competitive sports and activities both in and beyond the PE curriculum.

Our vision is to provide ALL of our children, of all abilities, with the highest quality of PE lessons and to ensure the following outcomes:

  • Pupils will enjoy PE and different sports.
  • Pupils will understand that PE is an important part of a healthy, active lifestyle.
  • Pupils will develop the skills and techniques they need to take part in PE and sport.
  • Pupils will use good levels of positive behaviour, attitudes and enthusiasm to become involved.
  • Pupils will gain Self-Esteem by getting involved in PE and sport.
  • Pupils will show Commitment towards the value of the PE.
  • Pupil will demonstrate Organisation by indicating a readiness and willingness to learn.
  • Pupils will become Resilient by overcoming problems and tackling challenges in their sessions.
  • Pupils will determine Excellence by showing a desire to learn, make progress and improve.

My Thoughts About PE:

I am extremely passionate about my subject because it is fun, rewarding and contributes to a child's professional development and their own wellbeing. PE enables all students to enjoy and succeed in many kinds of physical activity. PE helps students develop personally and socially. They work as individuals, in groups and in teams, developing concepts of fairness and of personal and social responsibility.

I really enjoy Physical education myself and believe that it is extremely helpful for body and mind wellbeing. Through working in teams, groups or individual activities, the pupils can create their own goals and strive towards these targets. These situations can also develop their morals for teamwork, fairness and appreciating someone else's efforts. 

Here you will find information and pictures regarding all of the exciting sporting events happening at St Anne's, alongside details of all our extra-curricular clubs and competitive events. We are aiming to achieve at least Silver School Games award this year by participating in different local sporting competitions for our pupils to participate in. Please check back regularly for termly updates on current topics in school. Mr Burton (Year 3 teacher and PE Subject Lead) and Mr. Connick (Year 4 teacher and PE Subject Lead).

PE With Joe:

Are you feeling bored and not getting enough exercise?! Then I would strongly recommend yourself and your child to take part in an exercise class routine by fitness coach, Joe Wilks (The Body Coach). He is currently the UK’s PE teacher by running a morning class every day for children and parents to maintain fitness whilst self-isolating at home. It is a really fun way to get your children moving, feeling energised, positive and optimistic. His sessions start and air every morning at 9am on YouTube. The link below leads to Joe’s YouTube playlist where he will regularly upload daily sessions. Feel free to subscribe to his YouTube channel.
