1 Corinthians 9:26-27: So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.
At St. George’s, the Physical Education curriculum and wider opportunities provision inspires all pupils to participate, enjoy, succeed and excel at individually targeted physical challenges. The programme of study and extra-curricular provision engages pupils in both team and individual competitive sports and activities, in addition to enabling all children to have access to 60 minutes of physical activity every day. By giving pupils the opportunities to participate, personally challenge themselves, or compete in sport and other activities it enables our pupils to build character, and helps reinforce our school values.
Whilst developing their competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities, St George’s maximises opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their own health and fitness to lead, and be advocates for, healthy, active lives.
We provide our children with opportunities to be active for personal benefits; to consider how they can keep their bodies healthy for their lifelong needs; to experience a wide range of physical sports and activities for fun and competitively; to work well with others; and to be leaders. This is achieved through assemblies on inspirational sporting figures, leaders, sporting values and events; active sports lessons, intra and inter school games; cross-curricular lessons on healthy bodies and eating in Science and DT; extra-curricular sporting activities; enrichment opportunities outside of curriculum time such as Relax kids, The Daily Mile, Harriers Football; and a variety of physical activities within the classroom such as Wake and Shake, Go Noodle and The Body Coach. In addition, further leadership opportunities are provided such as the Play Leaders scheme.
Opportunities to develop St George’s School Values:
- Courage: Children are taught to take risks when they are unsure about the outcome.
- Truthfulness: Children will play fairly and honestly e.g promoting sportsmanship and the British values.
- Thankfulness- Children will learn about the importance of being thankful for the equipment on offer, for their peers hard work and perseverance.
- Forgiveness- Children will learn to understand that people can sometimes act in a different way when their peers win.
- Compassion- Children will be taught how to behave with kindness when in a variety of game situations towards others showing good sportsmanship.
- Trust- Children will be able to trust in their own abilities as well as trusting the adults to keep them safe.
