Let Your Light Shine

Our School Vision

Let Your Light Shine



 “Even so, let your light shine before men; that they may see your good works, and. glorify your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:15-16


We are committed to creating a positive, safe and nurturing Christian environment, where all members of the school and wider community will be respected and valued.


Within God’s love, we will support and encourage one another to grow and flourish…

to be the very best we can be.



What do we aspire for our children?

At Staunton and Corse Academy the intent of teaching Physical Education is to give children the tools and understanding required to make a positive impact in their own physical health and well-being. We want all children to experience a wide variety of sports and physical skills which will enhance life-long fitness and life choices. PE can challenge and promote self-esteem through the development of physical confidence and problem solving. It can teach children to cope with both success and failure in competitive, individual and team based physical activities. Within dance it will allow children to explore their personal and spiritual identity.



How will we deliver the curriculum?

Children have equal opportunities to take part in a range of sports and physical activities within a supportive environment where effort as well as success is recognised. Children are encouraged to participate in exercise through-out the day during PE lessons, clubs, outdoor learning, OPAL play and special events.


At Staunton and Corse Academy the PE curriculum is structured to provide a range of sports experiences during which every child participates to develop their skills and learning through competitive, team and individual sports. PE is taught as an area of learning in its own right as well as integrated where possible with other curriculum areas. Every class across the school undertake two hours of PE per week. We have a P.E and Games specialist who comes into school and teaches one hour per week to each class. The other hour is taught by the class teacher. During KS2 children will have a series of structured swimming sessions at our local pool.


We follow the national curriculum and use 'Primary PE Planning' to assist in our planning as this ensures that skills and knowledge are built on year by year and sequenced appropriately to maximise learning for all children.

Children across the school are given the opportunity to take part in internal and external competitions. PE and sporting activities are inclusive at Staunton and Corse, where every child has the opportunity to perform and compete.

External coaches, local clubs and organisations and educational visits are also planned to support the PE curriculum and to enrich the pupil’s sporting experience. A healthy life-style is promoted with opportunities for children to stay active and eat healthily throughout the day. It is encouraged that children walk, cycle or scoot to school where possible, however on one week of every year we partake in the ‘Big Walk and Wheel’ to promote active journeys to school.
