Physical Education and Sport
A flourishing athlete at The Ridge will have the ability to acquire new knowledge and skills through participating in a wide range of sporting activities. Each week athletes will participate in one lesson of Real PE and one lesson on the wider sports. Real PE develops the 12 fundamental skills children need to be successful within PE and sport across the curriculum through the 6 key dimensions of: Creative, Cognitive, Physical, Health and Fitness, Social and Personal. The wider sports lessons focus on areas such as dance, gymnastics, games and athletics.
Our athletes will also have the opportunities to develop their confidence and skills in outdoor activities and water safety swimming lessons. Alongside their lessons, athletes have the opportunities to participate in a range of extra-curricular sports clubs that can then include representing the school at both intra and inter school level.
A Ridge Junior school athlete will be given the opportunities to lead a healthy lifestyle, perform high levels of physical fitness for a sustained period of time, take the initiative and become excellent young leaders and have the desire to practise, improve and beat their personal goals. In this way we endeavour to kindle a love of ‘being active’ that pupils will carry forward into their adult lives enhancing their mental and physical wellbeing and their ability to integrate into and enjoy socialising in adulthood.
Real PE (1 lesson per week)
Real PE is, first and foremost, a philosophy and approach which aims to transform how we teach PE in order to include, challenge and support EVERY child.
It develops the 12 fundamental skills children need to be successful within PE and sport across the curriculum through the 6 key dimensions of: Creative, Cognitive, Physical, Health and Fitness, Social and Personal.
