PE and Sports

PE is highly valued at Valley Invicta Primary School at Leybourne Chase. It is valued not just for the clearly defined skills and knowledge that it can teach as prescribed in the National Curriculum. It is valued also for the softer, less clearly defined but enormously important skills that it can teach about perseverance, determination, self-reliance, resilience and responsibility. Added to all of these skills is the fact that an enthusiasm for sport and PE will contribute to a healthy and active lifestyle. A fit and healthy body is one of the greatest gifts that a child can give to their future adult selves and it is therefore one of the most important responsibilities of our school.

PE at Leybourne Chase has three chief goals:

  • The first goal is to design and build a curriculum which will deliver the knowledge and skills stipulated by the National Curriculum. We teach each skill repeatedly throughout children’s time at our school and using difference activities as vehicles to teach these skills. We pitch lessons in such a way as they are demanding for the year group but differentiated to accommodate all abilities and disabilities.
  • The second goal is to give children the opportunity to face and embrace challenge without reluctance or hesitation. We aim for children to experience adversity both as individuals and as part of a team and teach children the skills of tenacity, team work and self-reliance required to overcome. All children will have the opportunity in each year group of the school to take a place on a competitive sports team to compete against other schools. The PE and sport provision will help children to grow in character and learn to face triumph and disaster and treat those two imposters just the same.
  • The third goal is to give children a daily opportunity to be active and out of breath. We aim to provide for children an experience of a range of physical activities, far beyond those suggested by the national curriculum, to help them to find a physical activity that they can be enthusiastic about and pursue outside school. We do these things, inkeeping the DfE’s obesity strategy quoted below, so that being active every day becomes an ordinary element of children’s lives and to contribute to their chances of living a longer and healthier life.
