At St. Saviour’s, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays are our special days for exercise and physical education. The children have lessons in many different aspects of PE and sports, these being delivered by our specialist sports coach Mr. Dan.
Mr Dan comes with a wealth of knowledge from playing semi-professional football, to having qualifications in strength and conditioning and coaching at FA level. Mr Dan’s passion and experience allow him to ensure physical education is fun, whilst helping the children grasp some of their best skills, attributes and potential through their sports participation.
As well as the standard PE curriculum, the children are given the opportunity to participate and represent the school throughout a range of sporting competitions including Football, Tennis, Tag Rugby, Athletics, Cross Country and Basketball. We are proud of the many successes that our teams have achieved; the trophies in the entrance hall are a perfect testament to this. In addition some of our pupils have also gone on to represent Westminster at a regional level at the London Youth Games, a fabulous accolade for St Saviours.
In KS1 we focus on enjoyment and fun, as well as developing their A, B, and Cs; agility, balance and co-ordination. Safety and spatial awareness are other aspects of the lessons spent with Mr Dan, allowing the children the essential time to explore and realise their own movement pattern and early potential.
As the children progress into KS2, they take part in a wide range of activities, from individual sports to competitive team games. We pay special attention to developing gross motor skills, with focus on understanding the importance of teamwork and good sportsmanship. At this level the children are introduced to the significance of good nutrition and the benefit a healthy diet has in all aspects of their school life.
Both KS1 and KS2 have extra G&T sessions to challenge and stretch those children who excel in physical activities. They are encouraged to push themselves in order test their true potential as well as refine their specialist sporting skills.
After school clubs take place for years 1 & 2 “All Sports” as well as years 3-6 Football clubs. All children are encouraged to participate and enjoy these extra sporting curricular activities to the fullest.
