At St George’s School, we consider sport and physical education to be integral for each child’s health and wellbeing. We follow the National Curriculum which identifies and groups subject objectives for KS1 and KS2. For more information on the National Curriculum for Physical Education please follow the links below.
The children are taught the PE curriculum by professional sports coaches and instructors and skilled teachers. This ensures that the children develop the necessary skills to take part in a variety of sports alongside communicating, collaborating and competing with each other.
Children from Year 1 up to Year 6 spend three Derbyshire terms attending swimming lessons at our local swimming pool where they learn how to swim alongside essential water safety skills.
At St George’s School all children have the regular opportunity to learn and compete across a wide variety of sports with other local primary schools. We are part of the High Peak School & Sport Partnership and have a full calendar of festivals and competitions which every member of the school can participate in.
Last year, despite not being able to take part in face to face competitions with other schools, pupils still participated in virtual competitions in a range of sports including football, basketball, athletics and even archery. They conducted themselves in the same professional manner as when attending in-person events and had great fun taking part in all of the activities.
This year we are very pleased to be able to return to sporting events with competitive sport events up and running again across the sports partnership. We have a busy calendar of events ahead, covering a large range of sports, there really is something for everyone.
