Physical Education


IMG_5137 copyThe overall aim of Physical Education is to provide pupils with positive physical experiences within sports that are based around individual effort and performance. We place enormous value on ensuring Physical Education is fun, challenging and inclusive for all.

We believe that if pupils can develop their skills within a variety of activities they will become competent, active individuals, with a motivation to participate in lifelong physical activity.

Each year group takes part in a PE lesson once a week and will experience lessons based on fundamental movement and skills, including gymnastics (vaulting and floor disciplines), fitness and athletics.

Within gymnastics pupils develop skills in balancing, rolling, jumping and shape work. Once confident in these areas, pupils  progress to gymnastic vaulting, testing their competency in flight, whilst working at different levels.

Pupils also participate in lessons based on fitness and athletics. Track and field disciplines are taught where pupils develop and gain understanding of  correct running techniques as well as power-based movements in throwing and jumping. We pride ourselves that our pupils have excellent all round fitness and strength.

“Physical Literacy - the mastering of fundamental movement skills and fundamental sport skills that permit a child to read their environment and make appropriate decisions, allowing them to move confidently and with control in a wide range of physical activity situations. ”
