At St Mary's Catholic Academy, we recognise the importance of PE and Physical Activity.
We intend to offer a curriculum that allows all children to not only benefit physically, but also socially, and emotionally. We want to develop a life –long passion for Sport and Physical Activity within our children.
Children will be taught from the early years to develop a foundation of fundamental skills that allow children the basic skills to become physically literate. As they progress through the school, these fundamentals will be essential to their continued development through a broad range of sports and activities that we offer.
By the end of Year 6, all children will have attended swimming lessons; learnt a range of strokes, safe self-rescue and be able to confidently swim a minimum of 25m.
Where possible, physical activity will be present in wider areas of the curriculum to re-enforce the importance of physical health and wellbeing.
