Our PE curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils develop the fundamental skills and competence to excel in a wide range of physical activities by providing a broad and balanced curriculum with opportunities for all to be enjoyed.
Our high-quality PE curriculum develops physical literacy and allows pupils to learn about themselves, the importance of a healthy lifestyle, self-expression and concepts such as fair play and respect. It also contributes to the development of a range of important cognitive skills such as decision-making and analysis, and social skills such as teamwork and communication. Our curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. We provide opportunities for our pupils to participate in competitive sports and activities both in and beyond the curriculum.
Our PE curriculum is inclusive and ensures that pupils of all abilities access the range of activities we offer and that they are physically active for sustained periods of time in order to encourage them to lead healthy, active lives. There are opportunities for pupils to take on leadership roles in which they can build character and embed values such as fairness and respect.
