At Churchfields Junior School, we intend for all pupils to:
- Have the knowledge and skills they need to excel in a broad range of sports and physical activity;
- Enjoy competing, communicating and collaborating;
- Understand how to improve their performance and how to recognise their own successes;
- Be physically confident and lead healthy and active lives.
How Do We Teach Physical Education?
In order to provide our pupils with an outstanding physical education curriculum, we teach a wide variety of disciplines such as swimming, football, tennis, badminton, hockey, netball, kwik cricket, rounders, athletics, cross-country, orienteering, circuit-training, gymnastics and numerous forms of dance. In addition to weekly two hours of PE lessons, delivered by our highly-trained specialist teachers, we provide pupils with the opportunity to experience additional activities such as BMX biking, rock climbing, mountaineering, paddle boarding, canoeing and sailing at specialist centres. This, alongside our extensive extra-curricular programme (see Information, Clubs for more information), enables each of our pupils to enjoy and achieve. Pupils have the opportunity for regular physical exercise every break time with a wealth of outdoor play equipment, sufficient for all pupils to enjoy.
