PE is seen as a high priority in the Corvus Trust schools. We understand the importance of children enjoying an active life and how vital it is that children are exposed to different activities at an early stage in their education. Our high-quality physical education curriculum gives an opportunity to all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. It provides 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 New National Curriculum for Physical Education 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, engage in competitive sports and activities and lead healthy, active lives. By adopting a holistic approach, we help to develop children’s physical literacy, emotional and thinking skills. We strive to develop key abilities that children need to be successful within PE and Sport and across the curriculum.
Our staff are well-trained, and several have additional qualifications in PE (NPECTS) which allows them to add to the expertise and teach PE lessons.
We pride ourselves in providing a good PE curriculum which includes gymnastics, dance, games, swimming and instils an enthusiasm and love of P.E. Each school enables the children to access local and regional competitions (such as gymnastics, athletics and high-fives netball).
