Our Vision for PE
ALL pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
Our vision is to create an embedded culture, where high quality teaching and learning of PE and Sport inspires every child to participate in physical activities, learn and achieve with self confidence and develop life long active life styles. Our creative curriculum approach aims to develop, motivate and enthuse all children across a broad and balanced range of physical activities. We aim to give opportunities for all pupils to develop their leadership, coaching and officiating skills as well as our staff. We strive to ensure the skills and positive values of sport, fitness and healthy lifestyles is embedded into our school ethos, using sport as a vehicle to help engage the wider community and foster positive relationships with other schools. We believe Physical Education provides the foundation of every child’s physical, mental and social well being as well as providing the opportunity to raise standards of achievement for all.
As a school we aspire to create a buzz about physical activities where every child enjoys, participates and applies themselves in all tasks they engage in with self confidence, independence and achievement.
