The school believes that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is vital and unique in its contribution to a pupil’s physical, social and emotional development and health. The physical education curriculum aims to provide for pupils’ increasing self- confidence through an ability to manage themselves successfully in a variety of situations. The teaching and learning of PE at Jesse Gray is based on progressive learning objectives which, combined with varied and flexible teaching styles, endeavor to provide appropriate, stimulating, challenging and enjoyable learning situations for all pupils.
Physical Education is concerned with developing good quality performance whilst enabling every child to become independently active.
PE at Jesse Gray stems from an ethos for each child to achieve their personal best through the achievement of physical literacy. The three steps to physical literacy are;
- Fundamental movements.
- Generic sport skills.
- Small sided games.
In September 2015, schools in the County of Nottinghamshire were issued with the Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education, “RE for All”. Through the use of the Syllabus we use RE to enable our pupils to gain insights and knowledge to equip them as responsible members in our society. The Syllabus we follow encourages pupils to discover more about religion and world views on a range of topics. They are encouraged to express ideas and insights into key questions which face all human beings as we travel through life. The three fold aims of RE in Nottinghamshire will ensure that our pupils:
know and understand a range of religions and world views which will allow them to recognise diversity which exists in our society.
can express ideas and insights about the nature, significance and the impact of religions and world views as they develop their own personal views on a range of issues
develop and use skills which will assist them to engage seriously with religions and world views
By following the Agreed Syllabus, RE will contribute to a whole range of school priorities. Their study will promote spiritual, cultural, social and moral development, as well as enabling them to consider British Values such as tolerance and respect for other who hold different world views.
