Our school teams have a proud and distinguished record of regular and successful participation in inter-school competitive sports events.
Our vision for PE at St Michael’s is to ensure the all-round development of every child and equip them with the necessary skills to enjoy a life-long participation in physical activity.
Through the delivery of PE lessons and extra-curricular opportunities, we aim to develop the pupils in four main areas, within which they will be progressed and assessed as they move through the school.
PHYSICAL ME - developing their physical ability in areas such as co-ordination, speed, stamina, strength, spatial awareness and flexibility through a range of activities.
HEALTHY ME - gaining an understanding of how activity affects their body and how PE participation contributes to a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle by encouraging self-motivation to take part in physical activity;
SOCIAL/MORAL ME - understanding the conventions of fair play, honest competition, teamwork and good sporting behaviour as individual participants, team members and spectators, as well as developing personal qualities such as leadership, tolerance and empathy.
THINKING ME - developing the ability to create their own activities, evaluate and improve performance and gain an understanding of what factors contribute to achieving sporting excellence and an improved performance.
