At Horncastle, we recognise the values that a high-quality Physical Education (PE) and school sports curriculum gives pupils. We want to nurture personal talents, discover new ones and encourage everyone to be the best they can be.
It is our intention when teaching the PE curriculum we develop the enjoyment of the physical activity and strive to improve the importance of health and well-being. Our intention is to give children the opportunities to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding and apply these in competitive situations, with the vision this provides them with lifelong learning skills. We strive to ensure that all our pupils receive a well-rounded learning experience when participating in different sporting activities, learning the importance of health and well-being and equipping them with the necessary values and tools to achieve in our school and beyond. It is our intention to engage pupils in the possibilities of sport to develop a passion for being active, healthy and the confidence to try new things and build resilience and determination with all they do.
We endeavour to provide high-quality PE and sports teaching in both curriculum and after school clubs. We aim to ensure that within their own level of ability all children can achieve and experience success, thereby enabling them to reach their full potential.
We work closely with JB Sports Coaching. They help deliver staff CPD, introduce our children to more unusual sports and run clubs before, during and after the school day.
We value the benefits of PE and sport to build children’s self-confidence, esteem, self-worth and resilience, which is character-building and essential for our pupil’s development.
