PE – Mr Jones

My name is Mr Jones and I am the PE lead at The Grove. I have been working at The Grove for six years and prior to my role, I worked at Watford Football Club Community Sports & Education Trust for thirteen years working in a variety of schools in and around Hertfordshire. My passion is sport and I believe that through PE, we can help develop a love of sport and physical activity in our children that they can continue to pursue outside of school and in their future lives.

I am fortunate enough to teach every class PE at some point during the week and I love to watch them progress throughout their time with us. I support teachers teaching PE too to ensure the children are receiving fun and engaging PE lessons. We follow a scheme called GetSet4PE. Here are some of the many benefits children receive from a quality PE program:

  • Improved physical fitness
  • Skill and motor skills development
  • Provides regular, healthful physical activity
  • Teaches self-discipline
  • Stress reduction – an outlet for releasing tension and anxiety
  • Strengthened peer relationships including respect and co-operation
  • Improved self-confidence and self-esteem
  • Experience in setting goals and targets
  • Improved concentration in the classroom!
