Our Aims for PE and School Sport!
Once a week children are taught PE by their class teacher. At Raunds Park we follow the Real PE scheme which focuses on improving children's fundamental movement skills through the telling of stories and playing characters. In addition to the physical skills, Real PE works along side 6 'cogs' which are designed to develop the key abilities that children require to be successful within PE and sport and across the curriculum:
