As per the 2014 National Curriculum, it is Rodbourne Cheney Primary School's intent to deliver 'A high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils 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.'
Through the teaching at Rodbourne Cheney we aim to ensure that all pupils:
- Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
- Are physically active for sustained periods of time thus increasing fitness and building stamina
- Engage in competitive sports and activities
- Lead healthy, active lives to improve physical wellbeing
Lead healthy, active lives to improve mental wellbeing
In Terms 5 and 6, our PE curriculum is intertwined with our Wellbeing focus of 'Be Active'. We recognise that being active is great for our children's physical health and fitness. But evidence shows that it can also improve mental wellbeing too. As such, in Term 6 we hold a Sports and Wellbeing Week designed to teach our children how to stay physically and mentally healthy.
