School PE and sport
It is our aim at Carlton Primary school to provide and strengthen the fundamental skills that underpin physical activities and then consolidate these skills by giving them the experience of a variety of different sports. Through careful planning, we ensure that all children’s physical skills are gradually built upon as they move through the school and that all lessons are safely executed whilst maintaining an emphasis on fun and enjoyment. It is our aim to ensure that all children are challenged and that they succeed no matter their ability. Alongside this, we place a large emphasis on the learning skills that PE enhances, including resilience, collaboration and respect. PE teaches children to be fair, work together and to respect others. Such skills, we believe, strengthen character, raise self-esteem and self-confidence which are essential for your child’s development in the wider world.
We strive to provide quality teaching and coaching in both PE lessons as well as extra-curricular activities that are run on lunchtimes and afterschool. Furthermore, we encourage and aspire to provide all children with the experience of competition through links with other schools and organisations.
We carried out a survey with the School Council to find out;
