What is the vision of PE at Lee Chapel?
Lee Chapel Primary School recognises the value of Physical Education (P.E). We fully adhere to the aims of the national curriculum for physical education to ensure that all children:
- Have a foundation for lifelong physical activity, leaving primary school as physically active.
- Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
- Are able to secure and build on a range of skills
- Are physically active for sustained periods of time
- Encouraged to participate in after school clubs
- Develop good sporting attitudes
P.E. is taught at Lee Chapel as an area of learning in its own right as well as integrated where possible with other curriculum areas. Our expectations are:
- All children participate in at least 1-hour of physical activity per week
- Children from Reception to Year 6 also participate in a 1-hour swimming lesson per week
- Experience positive competition in and outside of school
We at Lee Chapel also take immense pride in offering an extensive range of extra-curricular sports clubs after school providing children the opportunity to further develop their skills and passion. It also gives children an opportunity to work in teams, building positive relationships with children across different year groups and promotes an earnest to work together.
P.E is taught as a basis for lifelong learning, where the children have access to a wide range of activities in the belief that if taught well and the children are allowed to succeed, then they will continue to have a physically active life. A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all children to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. At Lee Chapel, we provide opportunities for children 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.
