Our Curriculum Approach
Tyndale Community School believes that Physical Education (PE) is essential to ensure children attain optimum physical and emotional development, good health and learn skills that will positively impact on their future such as fairness and respect. We intend to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical education and in developing lifelong skills. We are passionate about the need to teach children to cooperate and collaborate with others, as part of a team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life long values. In addition to this, we want to teach children skills to keep them safe such as being able to swim. Our curriculum aims to improve the wellbeing and fitness of all children at Tyndale, not only through the sporting skills taught, but through the underpinning values and disciples PE promotes.
‘Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.’ Michael Jordan
As a school, we choose to follow the National Curriculum for PE.
Purpose of Study
