Intent

We endeavour to help children develop the knowledge, skills and capabilities necessary for mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing in our children now and for their future. This includes giving pupils opportunities to develop leadership skills, responsibility and self-awareness so that they can be confident, enthusiastic learners. Through P.E., children learn that to be successful you must work hard, show resilience and have the determination to believe that anything can be achieved. By developing these skills, children will enjoy and have fun with physical activity during P.E. lessons and after school hours.

We hope to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical activities. This will allow pupils to develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities, as well as providing opportunities for competitive sports and activities. Children should be able to recognise and follow relevant rules, etiquette and safety procedures for different activities and events, in practice and during competition. We hope to have children who are physically active for sustained periods who can go on to lead healthy, active lives now and in the future.

Due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, only 45 per cent of young people are meeting the Chief Medical Officer guidelines of taking part in sport and physical activity for an average of 60 minutes or more every day with one in three children aged 2 to 15, are overweight or obese. To help combat this, as a school we hope to raise the profile of PE throughout the school by ensuring all children receive the statutory hours of PE a week and making PE lessons as active as possible. We hope this will help the children to find a physical activity that they love and can continue outside of the school day to increase life satisfaction. We also hope to deliver active lessons in other curriculum areas. We offer a broader range of extra-curricular activities to encourage the least active in school. Children will be able to discuss the importance of activity levels and a physically healthy life style.
