At Chesterfield, we have a host of aspiring athletes. We want our children to love physical education and sport. We want them to have no limits to what their ambitions are and grow up wanting to be personal trainers, nutritionists, sports journalist or gold medal winners. The school is based within close proximity to some of the London 2012 venues, as well as Tottenham Hotspur’s training ground. As such, we take part in tournaments held at their world-class facilities and have received coaching from their outreach programme. We aspire to give children access to a variety of sports, through P.E. lessons and after school clubs. Our curriculum drivers of oracy, emotional intelligence and aspirations for all shape every aspect of PE, are embedded in teaching and learning and develop the child as a whole.
We teach our children to be physically confident to set the foundations for future health and fitness. We firmly believe that physical education plays a vital role in developing children’s learning and success both academically, physically, socially and emotionally. Therefore, we have a carefully sequenced curriculum that inspires all our children to succeed in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. It also aims to embed values such as fairness and respect. As with other curriculum areas, our P.E. curriculum is designed to instil our children with a love of sport and physical activity, whilst also encouraging them to be respectful, independent and resilient. We want our children to use the vibrancy of our great city to learn from other cultures, respect diversity and co-operate with one another during sport. We achieve this by providing a strong SMSC curriculum with British Values and our core values placed at the heart of everything we do.
