Welcome to our school PE page. It is our aim to provide the best experiences for all our children at Grimsargh St Michael’s through our PE curriculum. Opportunities are provided for children to participate in after school sports clubs and the chance to represent school in a diverse selection of sporting events.
We are using three Big Ideas to help underpin our PE Curriculum.
Collaboration: To be able to work together as a team. This could be pairs, groups of children and of course- teachers and pupils together with our staff team.
Fundamentals: The basic movement skills – children will practice and attempt to master the skills of travelling (running, turning, chasing, side-stepping, skipping, travelling in multiple directions/plains, climbing, jumping/landing) and body control (stillness, balance, change of direction/levels, weight on hands)., throwing, catching, rolling, kicking and striking.
Performance: To embed physical literacy skills then transferring and applying them to key game principles, sportsmanship and positive mind-sets. To enrich and nurture children’s interest in sport, physical wellbeing and healthy lifestyles. To excite through a broad curriculum, opportunities/experiences (clubs and school teams) and engaging teaching.
Mr Brooks is our PE lead. Please contact him via the school office (01772 653600) with any queries or questions.
In 2022/23 over 100 pupils represented school in a variety of sports competitions and events- over half of our pupils! This supported our application for the School Games Gold Mark, which we have achieved for the second consecutive year.
It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness.
Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
