At Sir John Moore we believe that PE, Sport and Health education plays a vital role in the development of all children. As a result, we strive to provide a wide and balanced curriculum with PE, Sport and Health Education running through it.
In light of the COVID crisis, PE and School Sport at Sir John Moore has retained its core values of participation, volunteering and enjoyment, we are now in the second stage of rebuilding a wide and varied PE, Sport and Health education offer. This is not just the PE offer but also an active complete curriculum, a wide range of clubs, involvement in inter and intra school sport, links with local clubs and organisations and the underpinning ideology that a healthy lifestyle is a good lifestyle.
At Sir John Moore, we recognise that the skills covered in PE are not just physical. PE and School Sport allows the children an opportunity to develop their GRIT skills (Growth Mindset, Resilience, Independence and Teamwork), these skills are the thread that runs through our curriculum and allow children to flourish as Caring, Confident, Christians. As such, and reflecting current best practice in learning, our PE Curriculum is not sport specific and follows the Real PE scheme. We have adapted and added to the units where opportunities exist to enhance the learning of the children. Sport specific rules, strategies and tactics are taught in extra curricula sessions and applied in competitions.
Personal development includes activities that improve awareness and identity, develop talents and potential, build human capital and facilitate employability, enhance quality of life and contribute to the realisation of dreams and aspiration. (YST 2018)
