PE at Slindon - 2023/2024
At Slindon Church of England Primary school we recognise the importance that physical education, active lifestyles and competitive sports have in helping prepare pupils for life. Therefore, we believe that all children at our school should be physically literate with the required knowledge, skills and motivation so they can have a lifelong participation in physical activity and sport. As a result, all children in Key Stage 1 and 2 are provided with 2 hours of curriculum physical education a week, plus opportunities to engage in extra-curricular sports clubs and they are encouraged to have active playtimes and lunchtimes to ensure every child is getting the recommended 60 minutes of activity per day.
This year we are committed to providing opportunities for the children to be a part of extra-curricular sports activities. We have signed up to a variety of sporting events that are being held within the West Sussex area. Some children will also have the chance to be Bronze Ambassadors where they will develop their leadership skills and then use these skills to lead projects and activities within our school.
Our vision at Slindon Church of England School is to create a culture where the high quality teaching and learning of PE inspires every child to participate in physical activity. We aspire to create a school where physical education helps all children to develop their self-confidence and develop active, healthy life-styles. We will provide children with opportunities to develop their mental and social wellbeing and leadership skills as well as providing opportunities to engage in the wider community and foster positive relationships with other schools.
