The children at Castle Hill are traditionally very sporty and this is a tradition we want to continue! At Castle Hill we are passionate about ensuring all children are developing in all aspects physically and socially. We have a strong belief in making sure that our PE lessons are suited to the needs of our children and are challenged as often as possible.
Castle Hill Infant and Junior Schools is proud to be a real legacy school and strives to create a new ambition for EVERY child.
We are on a mission to get our children more active by developing the fundamental movement skills that are so often overlooked. Our PE lessons will be centred around the child to enable them to be successful both in the classroom and in later life.
Real legacy allows us to bring the school, home and the community together to enable cultural change. Our journey began with real PE teacher training to support our PE provision to develop the whole child. It will now extend across the school to include support for families and the wider school community. In addition to teacher training, Create Development will provide:
real PE activities and games for families to play at home to support home learning,
enrichment and competitive opportunities,
This programme, through its holistic approach, will also develop children's personal, social and emotional skills.
Every child has access to two hours of curriculum PE per week. Whilst one of these hours follows the RealLegacy approach, the other hour is used for core sports delivered by a PE specialist. This allows our children to develop their physical literacy through a range of experiences in dance, gymnastics, athletics, game skills, swimming and outdoor and adventurous activities.
