PE Curriculum

INTENT – Our Vision for PE:

Elodia R. Chapa Elementary - P.E.At Totley All Saints, our vision for Physical Education and Sport is that every child should have the opportunity to take part in physical activity on a regular basis and become more physically confident and competent throughout their years at our school. We believe it is an essential part of providing a truly well rounded education and that it is vital for the development of child’s social, emotional, physical and educational needs. We hope that, through the range of sporting opportunities, our children will develop a love and passion for health and physical activity ready for their next stages in their lives.

Our PE Curriculum reflects the ethos & aims of the school as well as the context from which our children derive. This means that our curriculum provides the necessary building blocks to develop the necessary knowledge & skills, whilst also promoting British Values, healthy lifestyles & mental wellbeing, plus excellent behaviour & attitudes. It is underpinned with a large emphasis on SMSC development, a strong practical outworking for others in line with our Christian ethos, whilst also building character & readiness for the next stages of education & the learning journey beyond.
