At Christ the King, we recognise the importance PE plays in the curriculum and are committed to providing all children with opportunities to engage fully in Physical Education. The aim of our PE programme is to develop children's basic physical competencies, build confidence in their ability and build the foundations for a lifelong love of sport, physical activity and a healthy lifestyle.
Our PE lessons are planned using the Get Set 4 PE platform, which aligns with our core values, our whole child approach to PE and the objectives laid out in the National Curriculum. Get Set 4 PE is planned so that progression is built into the scheme which ensures our children are increasingly challenged as they move up through the school.
To increase opportunities and inspire children to be active, we regularly source outside providers to deliver activities which would not normally be covered in curriculum time. Some examples of activities delivered are athletics, dodgeball, football and multi-skills through Full of Beans. We also make links with the wider community using local links to Port Sunlight Tennis and Rugby Clubs, Cheshire Cricket and Rugby Tots who come in to work alongside teachers as well as provide opportunities for the children to broaden their experiences in sport and physical fitness. Wirral School Games provide in school support, set intra competitions to take part in, run a variety of inter competitions and festivals for children of all abilities to take part in, regardless of ability or experience.
We pride ourselves in involving as many children as possible. We believe that our children should be physically active every day, whether through P.E. lessons, lunchtimes or extra-curricular activities and clubs. Our children should have the opportunity to compete in sport and other activities that build character and help to impliment the school games values: deterination, passion, respect, honesty, self belief and teamwork.
In 2019/2020 we received the School Games Virtual Award for fabulous participation in all the activities and games set during lockdown and in July 2022 we were awarded the Gold School Games Award!
