Physical Education at St Maria Goretti


SMG PE Statement of Intent 

At SMG we continue to show dedication to utilise the power of PE.


Using high quality teaching and established PE partners, we have a newly designed PE curriculum that gives our children creative experiences and opportunities which enable them to achieve personal successes, learn appropriate skills and gain vital independent confidence.


We strive to create cohorts of children, who go on to live physically educated lifestyles within their community.


By nurturing our children with a unique compassion that suits their needs throughout their school life. We provide safe, respectful and purposeful learning environments for our children of all abilities to be creative, grow and flourish through physical education.


Challenging our children to be aspirational, we aim to create a physically educated community of learners who strive to evaluate their own and others learning.


By using teamwork to grow both their own and others unique qualities, we are empowering our children, to give them both confidence and the required tools to allow them to shine with God's love, pride and success through physical education now and in future. 


Physical Education

At St Maria Goretti Primary School, physical education and outdoor learning are given a high profile. The school has always recognised the benefits of a strong Physical Education curriculum and extra-curricular activity on raising children’s aspirations and self-esteem. As well as equipping them with the skills to flourish in later life.


Physical Activity

We believe in integrating physical activity across our curriculum and school day. According to the UNICEF Convention on the Rights of a Child, all children have the right to play. At SMG we believe it is every child’s right to access Physical Activity through play and through our curriculum. Physical activity keeps both the mind and body healthy and plays an important part in every curriculum subject at SMG.



Sports Premium Funding

Physical Education is also a key ingredient in the battle against childhood obesity and encouraging young people to live active and healthy lives. It was for this reason that the government announced in March 2013 that all primary schools would be receiving a sum of money known as the ‘Sports Premium’.


With this in mind, the PE Leader and senior leadership team carry out an extensive and ongoing reviews of our current PE facilities, curriculum and extra-curricular activity to plan the use of the Sports Premium allocated to St Maria Goretti Primary School.


We are pleased to share our funding action plans with you
