Children at St Thomas More believe that each person is made in God's image and we help each pupil reach their full potential spiritually, academically, physically, socially and emotionally. P.E. positively impacts towards all of these.
We enable children to have a positive relationship with physical activity.
We focus upon everyone being active and everyone having a love for being active and being healthy.
The children are supported to develop physical literacy, emotional and thinking skills that underpin not just activity and sport but are life skills that support whole school development.
Children develop agility, balance, coordination, healthy competition and cooperative learning.
Our school grounds are used as a rich resource which help to support lessons, develop a healthy lifestyle, cultivate an enjoyment of being active and keep everyone active.
Assessments of how well pupils develop their fundamental movement skills of P.E. (Agility, balance, coordination) are used, including an initial baseline on the skill and a judgement at the end.
Extra-Curricula activities are varied and targeted at all children.
All children given the opportunity to experience a range of competitive and non-competitive sports and activities.
Children will leave school with life skills such as being confident, competent and safe swimmers.
