One of the ways in which our pupils are supported to experience ‘life in all its fullness’ is through participation in our Physical Education curriculum. We believe we should foster a lifelong love and enjoyment of PE, sport and competition, leading to a healthier future for all. We aim to encourage pupils to be healthy in mind and body, by providing a wealth of opportunities for all abilities. Whilst PE is celebrated as a competitive subject at Knowle, we emphasise it is not exclusive and we place teamwork, confidence, respect and enjoyment at the heart of our curriculum.
We use ‘real PE’ to complement our PE and School Sport teaching. ‘Real PE’ is a unique, child-centred approach that engages and challenges every pupil. It is fully aligned to the National Curriculum and Ofsted requirements and focuses on the development of agility, balance and coordination, healthy competition and cooperative learning. We are also part of the South Solihull School Sports Partnership and the Arden Primary Competition Partnership which gives us access to a range of sporting opportunities for pupils from Year 1 to Year 6.
