PE Curriculum Intent
At Giles Brook School, sport and physical exercise is integral to our children’s well-being and so is prominent in our curriculum. Our curriculum develops a range of skills and covers a variety of sports such as football, hockey, handball and tag rugby. We teach gymnastics, dance and swimming as well as providing daily opportunities for active play to enhance well-being and readiness for learning. Specialist teachers enhance our sports provision and we provide numerous opportunities for our children to be involved in representing our school in a variety of events in the local community such as cross country and athletics. In addition to this, we offer children the chance to take part in residential visits providing a range of physical character building challenges and skills which they may not have access to or develop in school. We promote positive attitudes towards sport and value achievements both within and outside the school day. We believe our children should have a competitive spirit but also recognise the importance of fair play and enjoyment of physical activity.
We are always looking for new initiatives and ideas that can enhance PE provision in the school and continue to try to improve the engagement of children in a variety of ways. Visitors promoting physical activity such as hula hooping or sport such as MK Lightning Ice Hockey team, are encouraged and good links are maintained with our local Pavilion where our sports days are held. Our aim is to create children who are naturally active and enjoy taking part in sporting activity both in and out of school.
