St Mary Magdalene Catholic Primary School


At St Mary Magdalene Catholic Primary School we fully adhere to the aims of the national curriculum for physical education. This is achieved through developing a fun, high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel individual’s abilities in competitive sports and other physically-demanding activities.

We will provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health, fitness and mental well-being. Our children will have opportunities to compete in sport and other activities that build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.

PE is an imperative element of the curriculum, which develops a need for healthy life styles, a balanced diet, positive growth mind-set and the resilience to persevere with activities that may be once have felt too difficult.

We are passionate about the need to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others, as part of a team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values. As a Catholic school, we understand the importance of charity so also raise money by taking part in national events such as Race for Life.
