PE

We believe that P.E. is essential to the development of the whole child. It provides the foundation for a healthy lifestyle and promotes character building, co-operation and self-esteem.

Through our PE curriculum we aim to:

  • Promote physical activity, physical development and a healthy lifestyle.
  • Develop social co-operation and positive attitudes and to compete with a sense of fair play.
  • Promote and develop safe practice in physical activities.
  • Provide equal opportunities for all children regardless of race, gender, background or ability and to provide a P.E. programme for children with special needs.
  • Provide opportunities for all children to achieve their full potential.

We aim to deliver a balanced programme with links to other areas of the curriculum, where appropriate. We aim to give all children the opportunity to extend their range of physical skills and develop their proficiency as well as appreciating the benefits of participation. The children develop many physical skills by taking part in sports including gymnastics, dance, football, netball, tag rugby, tennis and basketball, athletics and swimming (from Reception).We are able to provide sporting opportunities through our extracurricular activities which are provided by both teachers and external sports coaches.
