Maldon Court provides an opportunity for pupils to enjoy a variety of sporting activities, which form an integral part of school life.
There is a love of sport at Maldon Court which has been nurtured and developed by the dedicated members of our PE Department. We aim for high levels of physical fitness and co-ordination, in turn fostering confidence and encouraging participation from children at all levels. The school enters teams both locally and nationally in a wealth of sporting events and competitions, and currently holds the title of 'District Track and Field Athletics Champions'.
We believe that PE is essential to school life. It allows children to express emotions and feelings physically, and to learn and practice sport in a controlled and safe environment. Children are enabled to experience and learn what happens to the body when exercise is taking place. The subject also focuses on learning and understanding of health and fitness benefits, and why it is important to exercise.
PE at Maldon Court is taught from a very early age at Nursery 2 all the way through to Form 6. This subject develops an overview of agility, balance and coordination (ABCs), enabling pupils to use fundamental movement and technical skills in a sporting context. Pupils will also develop self-confidence, experience competitive interaction in various sporting settings, having to solve problems and make tactical decisions in order to achieve success.
As the children progress through their school years, they will learn and practice skills from some of the following sports: tag rugby, netball, hockey, athletics, cross country, gymnastics/dance, cricket, basketball, bench ball, dodgeball, tennis, health and fitness, circuit training, golf, team building and orienteering and many more. Every child has the opportunity to take part in PE clubs which explore various games and sports, enabling them to demonstrate skill in their chosen areas.
