What are we trying to do?
At St. Richard’s, we believe that broad and balanced curriculum of high quality Physical Education and a range of experiences form the basis for lifelong sporting and recreational activity. We will strive to promote school sport and physical opportunities which inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competition with themselves and others at competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. Through these opportunities the children will develop: a passion to compete in sport and other activities; build character (physical, personal, social, moral, spiritual, cultural and emotional); and embed values such as fairness and respect. In addition, the experiences the children will be exposed to will also continue to grow the pupil’s ability to express, communicate, appreciate and understand what it means to be physically confident and develop resilience in a way which supports their physical health, fitness, mental health and well-being.
