At St Oswald’s C of E Academy, we believe that the physical fitness of children is vitally important to their general well-being and health. Our intent is to deliver a broad PE curriculum where children experience a wide variety of sports and physical skills which are accessible to all so that outcomes for every child are maximised. PE challenges and promotes self-esteem through the development of physical confidence, teamwork and problem solving. It also teaches children to cope with both success and failure in competitive, individual and team based physical activities. Within dance it will allow children to explore their personal and spiritual identity. We aim to promote physical activity as a positive experience for all pupils regardless of their individual abilities and give them the tools and understanding required to impact and enhance their life-long fitness and life choices.
