PE is an integral part of our learning. Through high quality PE lessons ensuring National Curriculum coverage, children are inspired to succeed and, if possible, excel in competitive sport and physical activities. PE will provide all children with opportunities to become physically confident, to develop competence, to excel, to become physically active and to engage in a wide range of activities. PE lessons will focus on transferable skills which can then be applied to a number of different sports and activities as the children develop. At Ryhope Junior School, pupils will develop a broader range of skills and apply these to more challenging activities. There is an increased focus on communicating, collaborating and competing and the children are given opportunities to evaluate their performances and identify how they could improve as well as celebrate their own successes.  This year our full time Sports and Wellness Lead plays a pivotal part in further enhancing children’s skill set and sporting opportunities.
