At Eldon Grove Academy, the purpose of Physical Education (P.E) is to inspire and motivate all children to be active in their lives, enabling them to be physically confident. We teach the importance of choosing a healthy lifestyle as well as teaching the key fundamental skills and performance indicators. As an inclusive school, we believe that all children should have the opportunity to apply skills that they have learnt into competitive situations whether this is individually or as part of a team. As a result of this, Eldon Grove Academy pride themselves on the key values of team work, resilience and fair play all of which are promoted in an active way.
We aim to provide children with a broad experience of a range of sports and skills. The children get to learn about and participate in a range of sports/games within the curriculum. We also offer a range of extra-curricular sports and events. These activities change throughout the year and we ensure that we target after school clubs to each Key Stage so that all children have the opportunity to further develop their enjoyment and skills.
Children identified as having a natural talent or passion for a sport are selected to participate across cluster school events, whole town events and even Tees Valley competitions. This enables us to challenge even the most able athletes and helps them to make connections to develop their skills outside of school.
