How do we translate our intent into practice?


Our PE programme (medium and long term planning) and curriculum overview are designed to allow all pupils at St. Richard’s the opportunity to achieve the curriculum aims. They are written specifically to meet the needs of our pupils to allow them to achieve their full potential in a fully inclusive approach. This will be achieved by:

· promoting and encouraging relevant social and self-help skills.

· developing a pupil’s mental health and well-being.

· raising pupil’s expectations of themselves.

· offering a variety of teaching and learning styles.

· building on pupils existing skills and engaging them in competitive sports and activities.

· promoting gifted and talented pupils within P.E in school and gaining access to out of school opportunities for gifted and talented pupils. Promoting intervention to develop the pupil further.

· promoting school club links where ever possible.
