The Divine Mercy RC Primary School - PE Curriculum Intent
“Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God.” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)
At The Divine Mercy we reflect the National Curriculum aims:
At The Divine Mercy, our planning is based on a range of learning objectives that support a skill based curriculum. This is aimed at building progression of skills and knowledge through a variety of activities and exposure to different sports. This intent of this is to make all our children gain a love of sport, exercise and an awareness of how to live an active and healthy lifestyle.
PE at The Divine Mercy provides all pupils with the opportunity to experience a variety of activities to engage children at all levels. We aim to provide an attitude of, ‘there is something out there for everyone’ through a range of games and sporting activity inside and outside of school. We aim to develop confident, successful and independent learners who can problem solve and can experience sporting competition and actively through Salford Sports Partnership competitions and activities that are aimed at every child’s level. Through PE and competition, the values gained, such as sportsmanship, fair play, right and wrong and we aim to make this a priority so that our children can go out into the world and have an impact on transforming society.
Through PE, we provide rules that fit in with rules and engagement of physical activity and sports but also rules that can be transferred to everyday life. These range from encouraging those around you to be the best that they can be and to inspire others as well as future pupils to find, take up and appreciate a range of activities and sports. We aim to establish a servant leadership attitude amongst all children and staff. We encourage fair play, respect and tolerance of others during in house PE and competition and outside competition when representing school.
We aim to raise aspirations and personal pride by bringing people in who have different sporting backgrounds to talk to children and staff about their role, how they have set their goals and how they maintain them. This inspires pupils and gives them a platform to aspire to. We also provide certificates and PE medals to children for excellent behaviour, attitudes to learning and skill development during PE. Every PE lesson, in house competition and outside event is aimed at building character and sportsmanship
