At Emmaus Primary School we aim to provide a high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all of our pupils to succeed and excel in competitive and non-competitive sports and other physically demanding activities. We aim to provide opportunities for our pupils to become confident in a way which supports their health and fitness as they move towards making their own choices as young adults. In addition we aim to provide opportunities for children to compete in sport and other activities in order to build character and help to embed values such as team work and fairness.
We aim to develop children who are determined to succeed, think creatively and resourcefully in order to give every young person and the opportunities to achieve and follow their aspirations for life. To do this we have a strong ethos of hard work coupled with fun and engaging opportunities.
These are the six values that form ‘Spirit of the Games’ part of the wider
Sporting Spirit programme.
Competition creates the ideal context in which to explore personal values and conduct, as through it young people can learn how to handle victory and defeat, how to believe in their abilities and achieve their personal best, and how to respect their opponents and work with their team-mates to achieve success. The way in which schools communicate these values and involve young people in championing this cause will help bring the Spirit of the Games to life. This will ensure that competitive school sport is a rich learning experience for your young people, an experience which develops them to be not only the best sportsperson they can be but the best person as well.

Ski taster session at Pendle
Despite the wet and very cold weather conditions at Pendle Ski Centre, the Year 6 children were able to begin their preparations for the Liverpool Schools ski trip next year. For most of the children, this was their first opportunity to wear the boots and skis and begin to learn the very basics of skiing. All children managed the day very well and were able to ski a few metres, which will benefit them very much once they ski next year in France.
The instructors commented that there is great potential in this group of children and
as long as they listen well, they'll progress very quickly during the week skiing.
It will certainly benefit the children if they build up strength and stamina in their legs and arms and come along to cross country training on Friday lunchtimes.
