P.E.S.S.P.A (Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity)
Our P.E. Intent
St. Joseph's believes that P.E. is an integral part of a child's physical and educational development. Our intent is to promote a long term healthy lifestyle and enthuse pupils to participate fully, developing a lifelong love of physical activity, sport and exercise. Every child should be able to experience a range of opportunities to develop their fitness, health and well-being. Pupils should, through the delivery of a rich and varied curriculum, and both competitive and non-competitive sporting events, become confident and resilient in physical activity. Pupils will have the opportunity to achieve individual success and develop the skills, knowledge and understanding they need to become physically literate. At the same time pupils will develop socially through leadership, communication and team work skills.
Long Term Plan
Our long term plan is an overview of the skills, and sports through which physical literacy and physical activity are taught.
The main focus for Key Stage One continues to be developing agility, balance and co-ordination and the main focus for Key Stage 2 continues to be cognitive, physical and manipulation. For a greater understanding of what this means see the image below.
As a school we work with partnerships across Leeds to enable our pupils to access quality sports provision and give them a wide variety of opportunities.
