Physical Education

Vision Statement

Our aim for PE at Cubitt Town is to create a future in which every child enjoys the life-changing benefits that come from sport, play and leading a healthy lifestyle.

We aim to:

  • Develop confidence, skills and knowledge in a range of physical activities
  • Promote fair play and respect
  • Educate and encourage children to improve health and wellbeing
  • Provide new quality sporting opportunities
  • Engage in competitive sports and activities
  • Be proud of our own and others’ achievements

At Cubitt Town, children take part in at least 2 hours of fun, exciting and active PE lessons every week. In addition, we aim to promote health and fitness through at least 30 minutes of physical activity each day alongside lessons relating to having a healthy lifestyle and balanced diet. Furthermore, as a school we take part in a ‘Daily Mile’ running initiative.

As well as a comprehensive sports curriculum, we provide a range of extra-curricular sporting clubs and activities and encourage all children to join as many clubs as possible. Through these sporting opportunities, we hope to develop in our children a love and passion for sport that they will retain throughout their lives.

We also strive to give as many children as possible the opportunity to participate in a variety of competitive sports during their time with us. We believe in the value of understanding what competition feels like; what it is like to be part of a team; and the ability to both win and lose with equal grace.

Our older children have the opportunity to develop as ‘Sporting Leaders’ during their time with us. We aim to offer children the opportunity to lead sporting activities, organise games and events and learn to lead by example. By emphasising leadership, we hope the children learn the importance of communication, organisation, team work, resilience, perseverance and a respect for rules.

PE and Sport is a proud part of the Cubitt Town experience, as we prepare our children for a life of physical activity and enjoyment.

Please see the PE Curriculum Map which outlines the learning in PE lessons that take place over the year.
