Sport and PE

At St Mary Cray we have a very positive approach to PE and aim to promote an enjoyable experience, accessible to all pupils. We recognise that PE can help children develop their co-ordination, fitness and a sense of fair play. PE is based on the multi-skills approach to learning, combined with opportunities for competition in accordance with the National Curriculum.

We follow the Department for Education' s National Curriculum programmes of study for Key Stages 1 and 2, details of which are published on the DfE's website:

But have done so by introducing the Power of PE scheme of work:

Children have two sessions of PE a week, giving the required total of 2 Hours. In addition, some classes promote morning exercise, giving an additional 10 minute daily exercise routine.

We provide excellent provision for PE and sport at SMCPA. We recognise the positive impact this has on developing the whole child. For me information please see the PE funding section of the website found here:
