We will provide all children with high quality PE opportunities whilst encouraging the children to achieve their potential as well as developing physically active and healthy habits for life.
At Stickney Primary, we recognise the need to encourage children to be physically active and we understand the importance that activity can have, not only physically, but on pupils’ mental health and emotional well-being. We believe it is important for the children to have access to a wide range of activities with a view that if the children enjoy being active and are allowed to succeed, then they will continue to have a more physically active and healthy lifestyle. Experience of a range of sports also helps the children to develop the confidence, tolerance and appreciation of their own and others strengths as well as weaknesses.
Throughout the school, we deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities which are accessible for all and allow individuals to be successful, as well as excel in competitive sports. We know that opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect. We are passionate about the need to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others as part of a team, and learn key life values and skills such as resilience, communication and leadership.
At Stickney Primary we also have JB Sport Coaches come into our school to deliver PE lessons and extra sport activities such as Balanceability and First Aid training.
