PE at AYJS
Physical Education and sport are very important subjects at our school and we strongly believe that every child has the entitlement to an enjoyable, physical and creative curriculum both indoor and outdoor. We endeavour to provide all students with at least 2 hours of quality PE each week, delivered by our excellent staff and by external specialist teachers/coaches. Children are encouraged to acquire fundamental skills, knowledge and understanding of a wide variety of different sports that they will use to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle. Every lesson provides challenging and exciting work, which will inspire and enthuse children thus helping them to achieve their full potential. Please see our PE results website for fixtures and results.
What we teach?
At AYJS, we deliver a varied and balanced PE curriculum, which provides challenge both physically and mentally.
Our curriculum includes the following activities –
‘Playground Leaders’ is delivered to year 5 pupils and is an opportunity to increase student self-esteem, communication and organisational skills. It encourages students to coordinate activities at break time and lunch. By targeting Lower KS2 children, the ‘Playground Leaders’ can keep children engaged and involved in energetic, fun and safe activities.
All pupils have the opportunity to further their participation in PE through our extensive range of extracurricular clubs. Sports clubs run before and after school as well as at lunchtimes and are an opportunity for children to further their interests, improve and embed their skills or just to have fun.
In addition, there are many competitions throughout the academic year so students can highlight their skills in a competitive environment against other local schools. There are numerous school leagues, local and regional tournaments as well as national and international events.
Students have been very successful at both local and regional tournaments. Recent successes include being:
We also have several students who have represented teams at local, regional and national level in a variety of sports for teams outside of school as well as former students who have become sporting professionals.
