Physical Education and Well Being

St Clare's follow the Real PE philosophy, which focusses on developing the whole child. Throughout the six half terms, classes focus on six 'cogs' which enable children to develop their: social, personal, physical, cognitive, creative and health and fitness skills. Alongside this, they also work on twelve different fundamental movement skills also know as FUNS within these lessons. 


Please see more information on our philosophy in the following video.
