School Games Award 21/22
At Maryport C of E Primary School we believe that high quality Physical Education should be an integral part of the whole school curriculum. High quality Physical Education provides our children with numerous opportunities for cognitive, creative, personal, physical and social development.
We recognise the importance of developing each child’s physically literacy, in a positive and inclusive way. We aim to provide young people with the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding that establishes purposeful physical pursuits as an integral part of their lifestyle.
We believe that participation in physical activity is a key element of developing a school in which pupils are proud of the community in which they belong. Therefore, great emphasis is placed upon additional sporting opportunities beyond the lesson within after-school clubs, intra/inter-school competition and festivals as well as directly trying to support local clubs.
