Physical Education

Purpose of study from the National Curriculum

A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires/motivates all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as determination,perseverance, endurance, fairness and respect. 


To ensure that all pupils will benefit from an exciting, broad,balanced and differentiated curriculum that is matched appropriately to their ages, abilities and aptitudes.  Ensuring the progressive development of PE knowledge and skills and for pupils to develop a love of physical education. Supporting the development of their agility, co-ordination and balance in a range of increasingly challenging activities and situations. We will help our pupils become physically active and support them in understanding the importance of physical activity in promoting a healty, active life.
