Physical Education at The Queen’s School
The Queen’s school believes that physical education, experienced
in a safe and supportive environment, is a unique and vital contributor to a pupil’s physical, intellectual and social development. A broad and balanced physical education curriculum contributes significantly to the wider educational growth of the whole child; developing physical skills, providing opportunities for social interaction, cooperation, competition and challenge.
Sports Mark Gold Award
We are delighted to have been awarded The Sportsmark Gold award which recognises those schools which show exceptional achievement, highly innovative schemes or outstanding progress in meeting their sporting aims.
At The Queen’s School our Vision is that:
- Every child receives high quality teaching and learning in physical education
- Children are encouraged to be physically active for sustained periods of time both in PE lessons and within their playtimes
- Children are inspired by PE lessons/clubs, enjoy being physically active and leave our school with the motivation, the physical confidence, competence and knowledge and understanding for lifelong participation in physical activity.
- Children understand the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, how it affects their well-being and how it supports their health and fitness
- Opportunities are made for more children to be involved in competitive sport and a wide range of other physical activities which help to embed the values of fairness and respect
Physical education at The Queen’s School embodies the school values of Love, Compassion and Respect and the Olympic and Paralympic Values of:
Respect and Equality– take care of yourself, your health and the environment and show respect towards all those around you in the spirit of ‘fair play’ irrespective of age, ability, gender, cultural or ethnic background.
