Resources in use at St Augustine's
Years 1-6 are taught by a specialist P.E. Coach employed via J&C Academy. The coach follows the J&C P.E. curriculum which covers the National Curriculum aims, objectives and content. Throughout the year, children are taught to play football, tag rugby, netball, basketball, tennis and cricket. They are also taught gymnastics.
The P.E. coach runs an after-school sports club from 3.45 - 4.45 every weekday. Children from Years 1 - 6 may attend the clubs. Clubs vary, but generally cover gymnastics, Change for Life - health and fitness, volleyball and badminton.
Children from Years 5 and 6 may be selected to play in tournaments against other Westminster Schools. Tournaments take place throughout the year in locations such as Paddington Recreation Ground, Regents Park and the Jubilee Sports Centre.
Purpose of physical education
A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:
develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities;
are physically active for sustained periods of time;
engage in competitive sports and activities;
lead healthy, active lives.
