At Chesterfield, we have a host of aspiring athletes. We want our children to love physical education and sport. We want them to have no limits to their ambitions and to aspire to be personal trainers, nutritionists, sports journalists or gold medal athletes. The school is based within close proximity to some of the London 2012 venues, as well as Tottenham Hotspur’s training ground. As such, we take part in tournaments held at their world-class facilities and have received coaching from their outreach programme.
We teach our children to be physically confident to set the foundations for future health and fitness. We firmly believe that physical education plays a vital role in developing children’s learning and success both academically, physically, socially and emotionally, therefore, we have a carefully sequenced curriculum that inspires all our children to succeed in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities.
Our goal for Physical Education is that children are inspired to lead active, healthy lives by developing:
- a love of sports and physical activity;
- physical skills across a broad range of sports and activities;
- an understanding of the body, its capabilities and the importance of a healthy, active lifestyle; and
- sportsmanship, engagement and enjoyment in competitive sports.
Our curriculum drivers of communication, oracy, reading, aspirations and inclusion for all shape every aspect of PE, are embedded in teaching and learning and develop the child as a whole.
