It is our intent that PE inspires, engages and challenges all pupils at St Mawes Primary, and that our PE curriculum is accessible to all. We strive for all young people to have the opportunity to engage in a variety of sports and physical activities that will equip them with a range of opportunities to get active, enjoy sport, discover new and exciting talents and to lead an active and healthy lifestyle. We aim for all children to develop skills in both play and different sports so that every child has their chance to shine. We want all pupils to understand the importance of physical education and keeping healthy whilst developing lifelong learning skills such as teamwork and perseverance.
We follow the schemes Real PE and Real Gym at St Mawes Primary.
Real PE is a unique, child-centred approach. It transforms how we teach PE to engage and challenge EVERY child in primary school.
It focuses on the fundamental movement skills of a child's physical development:
Real PE develops the whole child, each term there is a multi ability focus:
* Health and Fitness
All children receive a minimum of two hours of curriculum PE per week, taught by both the class teacher and coaches from our links withoutside agencies. We have links with the Hall for Cornwall for dance and drama, Josh for Capoiera and Andy Ayre from C2C Sports.
