Happiness and High Standards




Our intent in teaching Physical Education (PE) are closely related to the school’s general statement of intent. Indeed PE is a key medium through which our school aspiration of Happiness and High Standards can be achieved. 

We offer a broad and fully inclusive curriculum which focusses primarily on the fundamental movement skills in a progressive way. We want our children to develop an understanding of the value of being active.
We provide a wide range of opportunities for pupils to be physically active throughout the school day and outside of the curriculum. We identify and nurture talent and provide opportunities for pupils to experience new sports and participate in competitive sport. Our outdoor learning environment also promotes activity and we ensure that we take part in the daily mile on our track. 
We plan exciting lessons which are delivered by enthusiastic teachers and which inspire and challenge learners and help them to develop lifelong skills and values such as resilience, teamwork and communication, fairness and respect.

In Year 5 and 6 we employ an external sports coach who delivers progressive skills into games.  Year 6 also go to the Robinwood residential and experience a wide range of outdoor and adventurous activities. 
We have a well established and effective Playground Leader programme which encourages our pupils to develop important leadership skills.
Above all, we help our pupils to develop their physical literacy skills and strive to instil in them a lifelong understanding of the importance of physical activity and exercise for a healthy body and a healthy mind.  This supports the focus we place on mental and physical health and wellbeing.
