Physical Education

At the Crossways Schools, we promote healthy lifestyles by providing enjoyable opportunities for all children to participate in high quality curriculum PE and school sport. For all children to develop self-confidence in their physical ability, helping them to reach their full potential in all aspects of school and community life. At our schools, we recognise the importance of Physical Education to a child’s physical, cognitive, social and emotional development, as well as the role it can play in a child’s moral and cultural development. Physical Education develops the children’s knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. Physical Education promotes an understanding in children of how to manage their bodies in action. We provide a broad and balanced P.E. curriculum, which includes individual, team, cooperative and competitive activities. This aims to cater for individual pupil’s needs and abilities. In addition to the importance placed on P.E. lessons, we also promote our wider curriculum offer, which includes the opportunities for pupils to take part in extra-curricular sports (including competitive events). Daily physical activity and health-enhancing activities also play a crucial role in our offer to pupils. This includes active lessons, active break and lunchtimes, using a wide variety of equipment.
