PE the Seahouses Way
To cultivate an enthusiasm for lifelong learning through a curriculum which reflects our rural and coastal context, adapting to the needs of our children- locally, nationally and globally.
At Seahouses Primary School, we provide a PE curriculum which encourages and develops a positive approach to health and well-being. We aim to ensure that every child has the opportunity to access at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, while covering all aspects of the PE national curriculum.
We believe that through the progressive and sequential teaching of skills along with access to high quality, specialist coaches, all children at Seahouses Primary school are given the opportunity to excel and succeed in all areas of the PE curriculum. Pupils will continue to have the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding to value and take responsibility for their engagement in physical activity, sport and PE.
Our intention is to develop a lifelong love of physical activity, sport and PE for every child. We help all children to make rapid progress in their physical, social and mental development and this helps them maintain a positive physical and mental outlook for the future.
We provide the opportunities for all of our children to attend extra-curricular sport clubs to further enrich and develop their skills. Excellent links with local, community-based sports clubs allow our children to compete in age appropriate, competitive sporting competitions. In addition, our children also have exposure to adventurous activities beyond the classroom making the most of our coastal location such as surfing, coast steering and stand up paddle boarding which promotes collaboration, problem-solving and a positive attitude to physical activity and an appreciation for our local area.
As a result of these opportunities, we aim to build resilience, persistence, concentration, fairness and respect within all of our children in preparation for life beyond the classroom.
As a school we work in partnership with the NUFC Foundation to ensure every child in school, from EYFS to Upper Key Stage 2, benefits from professional PE coaching. This also enables our pupils to access a wide range of sporting competitions across our region.
