Physical Education (PE)
“Physical activity is a genuinely life-changing gift for people of every age, from every background and in every part of London. The benefits it brings, from increased physical and mental health to improved wellbeing and social connections are of enormous importance to people, and to the city as a whole.”
Tove Okunniwa, Chief Executive, London
Why do we teach PE?
- We want the pupils to enjoy participating in physical exercise and to develop and establish healthy habits for their future.
- We want the children to experience a range of activities that help them to develop their health, fitness and wellbeing.
- Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character, leadership and help to embed values such as working together as a team, fairness and respect – skills that last a lifetime.
- To inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It provides opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness.
What do we teach?
At Michael Faraday we are committed to provide opportunities to learn to swim. Swimming is the only sport which can save a child's life... drowning is still one of the most common causes for accidental death in children, so being able to swim is an essential life-saving skill. Swimming also keeps children's heart and lungs healthy, improves strength and flexibility and it increases stamina, balance and posture.
