Welcome to PE at Faith Primary Academy
Our Sports and Learning Coach is Mr Gibson
Here at Faith, we strive to offer a high quality physical education curriculum providing opportunities for the children to engage, succeed and excel in competitive sport and physically demanding exercise.
PE lessons are led by our specialist Sports and Learning Coach, Dan Gibson, who works alongside our teachers to provide dynamic, challenging and fun sessions. Pupils in KS1 focus on the development of the fundamental skills, lower Key Stage 2 on the further development of transferable skills and upper Key Stage 2 on applying these learnt skills in a sport specific context.
The Physical Education and Sport curriculum is based on skills progression and focussed on learning. Pupils from Year 1 to Year 6 are timetabled for 2 hours of P.E. Lessons focus on the 4 core strands of Gymnastics, Dance, Games and Athletics. Children in KS2 also go swimming at Everton Leisure Centre. The sessions are delivered in 10 week blocks with each class group assigned one block during the year.
Extra Curricular Activities
Children at Faith are also provided with opportunities to participate and compete in a range of sport and exercise outside of the curriculum after school and at lunch times. These include football, rugby, basketball, dodgeball, handball, hockey, cricket, rounders, cross-country, gymnastics, athletics, fitness and dance.
