Hello, my name is Mr McManus and I am the PE co-ordinator at Sherdley Primary School. I am committed to ensure all children at Sherdley are given the chance to participate in sport and physical activty.
PE is an important part of our curriculum ensuring we are promoting healthy lifestyles. We strive to inspire our pupils to develop their understanding of the way in which they can use their body, equipment and apparatus safely yet imaginatively to achieve their personal goals. The intent of our PE curriculum is to provide all children with the opportunity to access high-quality PE and sports for all. It is our vision for every pupil to succeed and extend their potential as well as to lead physically active lifestyles. We also believe that the pedagogy of P.E. in sport affects other areas of the curriculum and really enhances children’s learning, physiologically allowing better learning to happen, as well as children learning transferable skills such as listening, problem solving, teamwork and resilience.
I love doing learning walks: seeing the children in action, implementing skills in rugby, dodgeball, dance and gymnastics to name a few.
We have a variety of sports clubs on offer for year groups each term. Please keep an eye on the app for extra curricular sports clubs that are available.
We are very proud to announce that we have been awarded a Silver School Games Mark for 2021-2022.
