Purpose of study
Physical Education inspires children to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for children to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Our aim is for children to participate regularly in physical activity and competitive sport. Through sport we want them to understand teamwork, fairness and respect. We aim for children to develop physical confidence and know the value of exercise as a benefit to their health.
Our curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all children:
- develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
- are physically active for sustained periods of time
- engage in competitive sports and activities
- lead healthy lives
