Physical Education (PE)

At St Agatha's School we believe that PE plays an essential role in young children's lives. Our commitment to promoting PE has led to us achieving a Gold Kite Mark Award for the past two years for the quality of PE, extra-curricular sports’ clubs and participation in competitive events.

As well as improving your child’s physical health it also improves their mental wellbeing and the high quality physical education that we provide promotes fitness and positive attitudes. PE also encourages personal and social skills, such as self-confidence, leadership and an understanding of the importance of a healthy, active lifestyle.

Your child will learn the fundamentals of physical education such as hand and foot-eye co-ordination, fine and gross motor skills, teamwork skills and problem solving. These will be learnt through both indoor activities of dance, gymnastics and circuit training and also through outdoor games including Tennis, Football, Rugby, Netball, Hockey, Cricket, Rounders, Basketball and Athletics. Please see the school PE curriculum for more information.

As a school we attend up to 40 sporting competitions each academic year, competing in the wide range of sports and individual pursuits listed in our curriculum. These include borough competitions, festivals, as well as fixtures against other schools.

Following our continuing achievements in PE, we are pleased to announce that once again, we have been awarded with a Gold Kitemark Award for PE provision at St Agatha's. This covers curriculum PE, extra curricular PE, inter and intra events, leadership opportunities for children and inclusive provision for all children. Well done and thank you to all children and staff involved in PE this year!
