“Developing confidence, skills and knowledge for life-long active lifestyles and healthy minds”

Our school aims to inspire all children to develop a love of physical activity and sport. Through good physical education, whole school values and a whole child approach, we aim to nurture confident, resilient children who will strive for their personal best.

We follow the Get Set 4 PE scheme of work which offers all children the opportunities to develop their physical fundamental movement skills, as well as achieving whole child objectives through gaining a knowledge of rules, strategies and tactics and building an understanding of healthy participation.  

Each lesson plan has progressive activities that are designed to inspire and engage our pupils; they have clear learning objectives with key success criteria, which provides information to help pupils develop their skill level and to consider how successful they have been within a lesson. Teaching points appear throughout to help teachers with their subject knowledge and modelling and to ensure misconceptions are addressed at the earliest point. Differentiation tasks provide activities with simple changes to appropriately challenge/support to ensure all pupils are successful and feel included. 

We recognise that learning takes time; all lessons are sequential and build on prior knowledge and skills. Our pupils benefit from high quality instruction, time to practise and receiving meaningful feedback. They are also given enough time to revisit and develop their knowledge to gain a competence within PE.  

We listen to our children's wants and needs and provide them with a range of active experiences, clubs and chances to compete. 

We want to aid our children in obtaining the values and skills to celebrate and respect the success of others as well as modestly celebrating their own successes. 

We aim to ensure that our delivery of physical education allows all children to have the skills and mindset to leave primary school with the capabilities to be successful in their sporting challenges and active lifestyles at secondary school and beyond. 

We strive to educate both our children and families to develop a greater understanding on how to live healthy lifestyles and make healthy choices. We are dedicated to ensuring healthy minds as well as bodies and will continue to support our children's well-being.
