P.E. at Stoke Park Junior School is delivered through high quality lessons that are fun, engaging and inspire all pupils to lead physically active lives. We aim to maximise the development of every child’s ability and achievement in P.E. enabling them to know more about physical activity and how it is a key component of a healthy lifestyle.
We aim to provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way that supports their health and fitness, whilst boosting self-confidence, self-esteem and supporting the development of social skills. Research has shown a direct link between children’s physical and mental health, therefore we aim to provide experiences that will inspire pupils to not only develop physically but also ensure mental wellbeing and a desire to succeed. By the end of their Stoke Park Junior School journey, our pupils will have learnt the importance of becoming lifelong sports people.
We ensure our curriculum is carefully planned and well resourced to ensure that all pupils’ knowledge and experiences are enjoyable. The curriculum is regularly reviewed and adapted to meet the needs of all pupils and ensure that the sports on offer are varied. The long-term plan will ensure strong skills progression across the key stage and that all pupils have multiple opportunities to learn and apply skills, and play a range of sports. Children will also be encouraged to participate in school competitions, extra-curricular sporting opportunities, attend external sporting events and work with expert coaches from outside organisations.
Regular participation in sport and physical activity at Stoke Park Junior School will improve physical fitness; promote good health; instil self- discipline; develop skills; build self-confidence; reduce stress and develop lifelong learning skills. Children will learn how to be a good sportsperson, develop communication skills and know how to be successful member of a team.
We want all children to enjoy P.E. and most importantly understand and value the benefits of exercise in their life beyond education.
