Primary School

Growing futures, rooted in Love, Hope and Respect


Curriculum Intent:

Here at St Columba we follow Get Set 4 PE to provide the children with a well-rounded physical education curriculum. The program is designed to create engaging, challenging, and developmentally appropriate activities that promote lifelong physical activity and health.

We provide a holistic approach to PE by focusing on skill development, health and fitness, and personal and social development. It seeks to encourage children to be active, promote enjoyment in physical activity, and improve their self-confidence and teamwork skills.

We develop key physical literacy skills, including agility, balance, coordination, and speed. At each stage of learning, skills are built upon from the previous learning, providing children with a comprehensive and progressive curriculum.

Through our PE  lessons we encourage children to develop a love for physical activity that lasts a lifetime. The program seeks to create a positive and inclusive learning environment where children feel safe, valued, and respected. It also aims to support the development of positive attitudes towards physical activity, promoting enjoyment, and a sense of achievement.
We are involved in the community sport program offered by the local secondary school, this gives the children a fantastic opportunity to get involved in competitive sports and further enhance their life long love for physical activity.
