Throughout their journey at St Edward’s CE Primary School, we believe that every child should:
- Experience PE in a safe and supportive environment, to ensure they attain optimum physical and emotional development and good health.
- Develop their knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities.
- Be supported to improve their wellbeing and fitness, not only through the sporting skills taught but through the underpinning values PE promotes.
At St Edward's we follow the Get Set 4 PE scheme. They provided high-quality content and tools that are accessible and written by qualified PE teachers. The scheme works from EYFS to Year 6, covering all areas of the National Curriculum and EYFS Statutory Framework.
It provides a clear progression of skills and knowledge; helping teachers to support children of all ages and abilities.
Get Set 4 PE, teaching staff and coaches provides:
- Differentiated ability tasks enable children to progress at their own pace.
- Ways to quickly identify any children who require additional support in specific areas.
- Resources and the know-how to Celebrate individuals' progress in their learning journey.
- Cross-curricular links whenever possible.
Children at the Forefront
At St Edward's children will demonstrate and maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. They are given the opportunity to have their say, through Primary Stars about their PE lessons, playground environment and after-school clubs.
Our Primary Stars attend weekly sessions, which are run by coaches from the Shrewsbury Town Foundation, that encourage collaboration and an active playground for their fellow pupils.
All children have the opportunity to join in our extracurricular activities and to participate in PE events that are run throughout the academic year.
Children will learn a variety of skills. They will be able to understand the mutual respect needed to compete in a sporting competition. This will be evident through the way they conduct themselves when they compete. They will be tolerant of the different faiths and beliefs that contribute to team competitions locally, nationally and internationally. The children will understand that they are to be compliant with the rules of a game and that we live in a democratic society where both men and women can play mixed sports.
With this in mind, we follow the Premier League Values as shown below:
