Vision statement and intent:
The aim of physical education curriculum at Skelmanthorpe Academy, is to promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles. Children are taught to observe the conventions of fair play, honest competition and good sporting behaviour as individual participants, team members and spectators. Children take part in games, gymnastic movement, dance and athletic activities using indoor and outdoor environments where appropriate. In Tear 5, children go on a residential course for outdoor activities. Children have swimming lessons in Year 4. We work closely with the Shelley Pyramid of schools and all key stages participate in a range of extra-curricular sporting events.
