Physical Education

Physical Education

The P.E. curriculum provides children with learning opportunities through the medium of movement and contributes to their overall development by helping them to lead full, active and healthy lives. There are six strands in the P.E. curriculum:

  • Athletics
  • Dance
  • Gymnastics
  • Games
  • Outdoor and adventure activities
  • Aquatics

In Central Model Infants’ School we cover all strands twice during the school year. Each class also attend four weeks of swimming lessons in Sean McDermott Street swimming pool and the ‘Land Paws’ (Primary Aquatic Water Safety) programme is taught during Active Schools Week each year. This programme focuses on water safety and land-based aquatic skills.

All classes have a minimum 45 minute slot in the school hall and classes use our large school yard for additional P.E. time and skills development.

Our P.E. plan was updated in 2019. In this plan you can find information on what strand we are working each month and which fundamental movement school we are developing. You can keep up to date by checking out our Active Schools information board inside the porch in the main building.
