PHYSICAL EDUCATION at St Finian's-intent implementation impact

At St. Finian’s, we are committed to providing a high quality physical education curriculum, accessible to all. We want to inspire our children to develop important skills and attitudes for a healthy and active lifestyle leading to lifelong participation. We do this through a diverse PE curriculum designed to build skills and confidence in a wide cross section of physical activities. 

We aim to: 

· offer an extensive range of sporting opportunities delivered by committed and inspirational teachers 

· ensure children progress in knowledge and skills through a carefully planned and creative PE curriculum 

· foster a love of physical activity and sport in our children, motivating them to have high aspirations for achievement 

· seek opportunities to form partnerships with other schools to provide a rich and varied PE curriculum 

It is important to us that children have regular opportunities to participate in healthy competition and in doing so, build important lifelong values, including determination, fairness and respect. We provide opportunities for children to develop as leaders in sport and to build valuable team skills. Our sports co-ordinator organises regular fixtures with primary schools in the Newbury area involving friendly matches with neighbouring schools and through West Berkshire schools tournaments. 

Our extensive school grounds set within the rural village of Cold Ash, provides a wonderful setting for children to fully engage in a physical and active lifestyle throughout the school year. At St. Finian’s, we are immensely proud to have achieved West Berkshire Gold Award Status for the sixth year running (July 23). This award is a reflection of our commitment to the vision we have for sport at our school and our active participation in the West Berkshire Schools Network.
