Physical Education

PE Kit Days Spring 2022

Physical Education aims to develop students’ physical competence and knowledge of movement and safety, and their ability to use these to perform in a wide range of activities associated with the development of an active and healthy lifestyle. It also develops students’ confidence and generic skills, especially those of collaboration, communication, creativity, critical thinking and aesthetic appreciation. These, together with the nurturing of positive values and attitudes in PE, provide a good foundation for students’ lifelong and life-wide learning.


PE gives an opportunity for personal expression and it can play an important part in the personal development of an individual. 


PE reflects our culture and society and so the teaching and learning of PE enables children to better understand the world they live in as well as their own physical and mental attitude to our world. Besides being a creative and enjoyable activity, PE can be a highly academic and demanding subject.


It is also important in helping children feel part of a community. PE is taught through the Early Years Foundation Stage and as a foundation subject within the National Curriculum. 


The aims of PE teaching in the Early Years Foundation Stage is driven by children's interests and curiosity as part of the Physical Development aspect. Opportunities will be planned to enable children to:


*Be active and interactive

*Develop their coordination, control with large and small movements. 

*Understand the importance of physical activity

*Move confidently in a range of ways, safely negotiating space

*Make healthy choices in relation to food
