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.

Through our teaching of PE, we aim to:


  • ensure children’s safety at all times;  
  • promote enjoyment of physical activities;  
  • differentiate our teaching in order to cater for all children;  
  • contribute to the physical development of each child;  
  • enable children to develop a sense of achievement through physical activity;  
  • establish self-esteem through the development of physical skills and confidence;  
  • further the school’s efforts in developing skills of co-operation between children;  
  • further the school’s efforts in developing children’s self-discipline;  
  • help children to cope with both success and failure in competitive and co-operative activities;  
  • ensure coverage of the statutory requirements for PE teaching as prescribed by the National Curriculum;  
  • teach children to value the benefits of participation in physical activity whilst at school and throughout life;  
  • promote the relationship between physical education and healthy lifestyles;  
  • provide skills which can be of value to the children as future citizens;  
  • provide knowledge and skills within a range of activities which could provide for the gainful use of leisure time;  
  • “Sign post” children towards specialist coaching and opportunities where appropriate;  
  • develop problem solving skills;  
  • develop artistic and aesthetic understanding within and through movement.  

As stated in our list of aims and through a Heads, Hands and Hearts focus, we intend to fulfil our statutory obligations within the National Curriculum in a manner which promotes safety, health, enjoyment and achievement for all children regardless of their starting points…. “Happiness and High Standards”.
