At Muntham House School, the PE curriculum uses the Head, Heart, Hands model to develop the crucial skills and attributes required for the modern world. This spiral curriculum provides pupils with opportunities to develop not only as an athlete or sportsmen but as overall well-rounded pupils.
Effective implementation of this model will ensure that pupils not only develop into well-rounded and well-coordinated pupils but are provided with lifelong transferable skills.
Primary PE at Muntham House School aims to develop a fun, inclusive, high-quality physical education inspiring pupils to excel and succeed in various areas of physical activity. Pupils are provided with opportunities to start developing their coordination and general fitness, which also supports pupils’ mental health and well-being. Pupils will have opportunities to start competing in sport and other activities that build character and develops social skills and self-confidence.
Regular participation and competition will help to embed values such as sportsmanship, fair play and respect. At Muntham House School, PE is an imperative part of the curriculum, which introduces the need for healthy lifestyles, a balanced diet, a positive growth mindset and the resilience to persevere with activities that may once have felt too difficult. Staff are passionate about teaching pupils how to cooperate and communicate properly with others through exercise and playing sports. Understanding fairness, determination, and teamwork embed life-long values in our pupils. All these skills prepare pupils to make a fluent and seamless transition into Secondary school.
