Physical Education (PE)
At Mary Elton, our aim is to provide an enriched PE curriculum that encourages our children to flourish in a variety of physical activities and sports which is essential in their physical, social and mental development. All children will benefit whether enhancing existing skills, learning new skill or being introduced to new sports, clubs, teams and organisations.
At Mary Elton our children will have opportunity to compete in competitive sports and activities in our inter- house sports competitions; as well as competitions with other schools that build character and help embed our school values of Ready, Respectful and Safe and the 5 C’s. Our children will have the opportunity to experience a wide range of physical activities and sports through sporting day trips and sporting experts coming in to share their knowledge and teach lessons. Our intent is to ensure our children understand the importance of having a healthy lifestyle and the need for good nutrition; this is taught through our cross- curriculum of Science, PSHE and our Healthy Eating Trail.
