PE Intent

Our Phyisical Education Curriciulum aims to develop thinking, selecting and applying skills which are important for progression across the whole of the curriculum. We want to make our children resilient learners, to be able to self-regulate and understand the importance of physical and emotional wellbeing. We want to develop curious learners in a safe and respectful environment. It is our intent for our children to adapt a healthy lifestyle and positive attitude towards sport which impacts on their future life choices. We offe extra curriculum activities which allow all learners to thrive, to share their talents and exhibit their skills.

Respect - for oursevles and others in sports and team games.
