PE

PE at St Saviour's is much more than just the progression of skills needed for sports and physical activity. We aim to develop a child's physical literacy and life skills such as resilience, confidence and social skills. 

Physical Literacy is our relationship with movement and physical activity throughout life. It reflects our connection and commitment to movement and physical activity, influenced by various factors such as our thoughts, feelings, engagement, and experiences. How we move, connect, think and feel during movement and physical activity shapes our physical literacy, allowing us to find meaning, enjoyment and value to deepen our connection. Positive participation experiences influence a young person’s positive relationship with movement and physical activity, which impacts on their physical activity levels now and into the future. - SSP

Here at St Saviour's, we value the importance of movement and exercise in all parts of school life. This year, we have decided to use Complete PE to help enhance our progressive, cohesive and enjoyable PE curriculum across the school.

By living out our school mission statement, we remember to help each other to be what God created us to be and to be confident and independent people in His world. In our inclusive PE lessons, everyone is helped to grow in love and respect. Children are encouraged to support each other and challenge themselves in a safe, inclusive and accessible space.

School Games

Throughout the year, we will engage in the national School Games Programme by organising for willing pupils to participate in School Games festivals and competitions. We aim to take part in sport events to INSPIRE, ASPIRE and CELEBRATE our children.

We want to break down the barriers that many young people face by promoting opportunities for those young people who believe that school sports isn’t for them

Personal Best

'One part of the School Games programme mission is to help more children and young people with the opportunity to compete and achieve their ‘personal best’. There is a focus on including competition against oneself and others to improve personal performance with a focus on the process rather than the outcome.'- SSP 

At St Saviour's, we aim to open up more opportunities for more young people to achieve their personal best. We do not believe that competition is just for the strongest or fastest person in the group. By offering competition throughout the key stages, we aim to help motivate the children in our school. 

60 Active Minutes

The Chief Medical Officer (CMO) recommends that all young people should be active for 60 minutes a day. The recommendation is for 30 minutes active at school and 30 minutes active at home. Active refers to moderate to vigorous activity where young people’s heart rate are raised and they start to get out of breath and sweaty.

At St Saviour's, we aim to encourage children to increase their active minutes in the classroom every day as well as maximise their lunchtimes, breaktimes, before and after school.

Below are some helpful links to encourage your child to complete their 'Active 30' at home:
