Hi. I’m Mr Skinner and I am the subject leader for PE.
I believe that PE and school sport play a vital role in primary school life. It is during these years that we can develop in our children an enjoyment and passion for physical activity.
Here at New Swannington we really value all aspects of Physical Education including school sport, physical literacy and healthy and active lifestyles. We know how important physical activity is to a child’s physical development and mental wellbeing and the benefits it has on many aspects of children’s lives.
We link all of our school sport and physical activity to the School Games values of self-belief, determination, passion, team-work, respect and honesty. These are an integral part of our PE curriculum and are focused on as much as the physical skills.
We follow the National Curriculum Programme of Study for P.E and the subject is mapped across year groups to ensure that all areas of physical development and activity are covered repeatedly. Every child, receives two hours of high quality PE a week delivered by out teaching staff as well as external sports coaches.
We aim to provide every child with the opportunity to experience school sport and physical activity in both a competitive and non-competitive environment. We ensure that our provision is inclusive and that every child has the opportunity to take part in events outside of school through our partnership with the North West Leicestershire School Sports Partnership.
