PE at The Mount Stewart Schools
Aims and Objectives
All children in our schools enjoy 2 hours a week of timetabled physical activity. Both the indoor and outdoor sports spaces are prioritised for those classes who have timetabled PE activities; this means that inclement weather does not stop these PE activities from taking place, since planned outdoor activities may be transferred indoors.
Our PE curriculum is designed so that children have the opportunity to:
All children are expected to be able to apply these skills to competitive situations, either in parts of planned lessons, or in specifically organised events, such as sports day, and other termly intra-school competitions. As children progress through the schools, they are taught how to recognise effective performance, both of their own and of others. They are then expected to be able to help plan and organise tasks which may help or challenge others to improve their ability in different activities. As well as this regular self-evaluation during lessons, children are also required to complete a formal self-assessment, which confirms their own feelings about the progress they are making in physical education.
