At Chaddesley Corbett we strongly believe in the link between healthy bodies and healthy minds and are aware of the positive contribution PE and Sport can play in the all round development of the pupils.
The curriculum is broad, balanced and up to date and it is designed to enable pupils to become physically literate as they leave Chaddesley Corbett. Pupils develop their fundamental movement skills in the early years (locomotion, stability and object control) and as they grow they combine these skills into complex movements before applying these skills into sport specific areas as they reach year 5/6.
There are numerous opportunities for pupils to represent their house at over ten different sports throughout the year as well as participating in leadership opportunities and attending festivals and competitions.
The school has links with a number of local sports clubs and we often have coaches in to provide the pupils with different experiences including tennis, rugby and football.
Children experience gymnastics, dance, sports and outdoor education activities. These involve pupils in developing both individual and team skills. Through this they develop confidence, enjoyment trust and respect.
Through our engagement with the Wyre Forest Schools' Sports Partnership, children are able to take part in a range of inter-school sports and festivals. Last year children participated in swimming, hockey, cross-country, football, dodgeball, rugby and tennis festivals.
OUR SCHOOL GAMES AWARD!!
During the Summer term of 2017, we took part in the Sainsbury's School Games Mark and achieved our first Silver award! The Sainsbury's School Games Mark is a Government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Schools in England are able to assess themselves across bronze, silver and gold levels of the Mark. We are really pleased with our award and are putting the steps in place, in order to achieve Silver again next year.
