PE

St. Maria's offers exceptional opportunities for pupils to both access a range of physical activities and develop their physical skills.  Alongside teachers and specialist coaches delivering high quality skills based lessons, children are also given the opportunity to access alternative sports, such as yoga, lacrosse and fencing within the curriculum.  

 As part of the extended schools provision, all pupils have the opportunity to access various sporting activities including football, athletics, tag rugby, tennis and multiskills. There are also opportunities for each year group to participate in sporting events and interschool competitions within our Multi academy. These take place regularly throughout the year to allow the children to compete in a variety of sporting activities. 

 Through the curriculum and extended schools provision, St Maria has previously been awarded the Bronze Award for the School Games Mark and are currently working towards the Silver Award.

  

To ensure that we are working towards a 'mentally healthy' school, St. Maria's have provided each year group the opportunity to attend a yoga club throughout this academic year, which has been thoroughly enjoyed by the children, and recently held a week focusing on ‘finding your brave’ for Children’s Mental health week. During this week, all year groups, from FS1 to Year 6, took part in a multitude of activities to develop their understanding of a healthy mindset and a positive wellbeing. We will continue to hold specific health weeks in the future to develop the children's resilience as this was greatly received by all staff, pupils and parents. 

  

Being healthy and eating healthy is actively promoted at St Maria’s. It is taught alongside PE and in other subjects in all classes to ensure each child gains a true understanding of what it means to be healthy and how to be healthy so that it is embedded at an early age and becomes part of everyday life. 

  

PE can lead to a future in a variety of careers and this year, we ran a sports career club for Y5 and 6 to demonstrate the career options available, as well as a successful careers week. Potential careers related to PE include:

 

PE teacher / Specialist Sport Coach

Sports Scientist
