At the Mount Stewart Federation, we believe that physical education is an essential part of a child’s education development and in promoting long term health and well-being. We aim to provide a high-quality physical education curriculum that provides active participation, competition and supports excellence. Positive and inclusive participation in P.E builds children’s skills of teamwork, determination, resilience and boosts self-esteem.
Mount Stewart PE provision is supported by Challenge Sport & Education (CSE). CSE consistently delivers high-quality PE lessons and tailors each lesson to the needs of the individuals involved.
Working with CSE for specialist support not only helps the children develop skills and confidence but also supports the staff in building their knowledge and skills. In addition, reference is also made to Human Anatomy and the importance of a healthy lifestyle. Having a balanced approach so that teachers and specialists teach the children means that everyone benefits.
As a result of our PE and School Sport audit we have identified areas for improvement and where we intend to spend our Sport Premium money from the DfE. Please visit the PE and Sport Premium Page for more information.
