ST Thomas More Vision Statement for PE
At St Thomas More School we understand the importance Physical Education and School Sport have in developing the whole child. Our vision is to inspire a generation of children to recognise the importance of living a healthy active lifestyle through a spiritual recognition of the values of teamwork, respect, honesty, determination, passion and self-belief.
Our aim is to challenge each child to reach their full potential and a desire for lifelong participation in physical activity or competitive sport.
Our PE activities incorporate the development of games and gymnastics skills. Co-operation and team spirit are encouraged through a variety of activities. Children also explore dance lessons which often directly link to the topic they are learning or our continent focus. Our staff are highly skilled in their delivery of the PE curriculum and we also draw on expertise of coaches in the local area and link with the local secondary school. Pupils have the opportunity to take part in sporting activities and competitions with local schools and we also have tournaments between the different houses in our school.
