PE and Sports
At Wisbech St Mary C of E Academy, we promote and ensure that all children are given the opportunity to take part in inclusive, engaging and adaptive physical activity and to develop their understanding of physical literacy - motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding the value of physical activity for lifelong participation.
Every child is individual and our PE curriculum, from the Cambridgeshire Scheme of Work for Physical Education, is tailored to account for this and help develop their fundamental skills and well as expecting the best from all children. Our curriculum is supplemented by peripatetic teachers from Peterborough United Football Club's education department. Their highly experienced and qualified staff provide coaching sessions in football, tag rugby, hockey, basketball and cricket for Key Stage 2 pupils and multi-skills activities for Key Stage 1 children.
We give the children the opportunity to participate in a variety of sporting contexts (games, dance, gymnastics and swimming) that build upon their skills that allows them to progress up to participating in traditional sport. Children also have the experience to compete whilst displaying the following values: determination, honesty, passion, respect, self-believe and teamwork.
At Wisbech St Mary C of E Academy we also give a variety of extracurricular sporting clubs to promote healthier lifestyles and develop new and existing skills.
