How does PE link to our school vision?
Let peace dwell here – respect to the opposition, teammates, coaches and officials.
Let love abide – supportive relationships, sharing best practice with less confident teammates.
Love of Mankind – connecting locally and globally with the wider community, learning about different cultures e.g. Haka in Rugby.
Love of life itself – learning a range of different sports and recognizing the importance of healthy eating and fitness to pursue a healthy lifestyle.
Links to Christian and British Values:
Mutual respect and tolerance: pupils develop an understanding and respect for teammates and opposition; whilst appreciating that we can all make mistakes; despite at trying to do the right thing. Demonstrate respect and tolerance to the officials even if we disagree with their decision.
