PE: Intent

The curriculum here at St Michael’s, underpinned by the National Curriculum, holds our children and their aspirations, environment and development at its heart. Whilst allowing them to build their knowledge, skills and resilience, it also prepares them for their future as citizens of Liverpool. so they can conquer the wider world. We embrace our children’s spiritual needs through our mission values whilst exploring and celebrating their cultural diversity and identity.

By the time our children reach the end of their primary journey we endeavor for them to have the ability to communicate effectively using a broad and varied vocabulary, having being exposed to a wide range of literature and a plethora of life enriching experiences.

Year-on-year, children will build on their knowledge and skills to enable them to pursue new learning and explore their talents and interests.

PE at St Michael’s inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. It provides opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.

Areas for Development:

  • PE kits are still not being worn by all pupils; a possible suggestion of school tracksuit worn on set days for PE.
