Physical Education (PE)
Barley Hill Primary School Physical Education Intent
Through our Physical Education Curriculum, we aim to inspire all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive and other physically demanding activities, encouraging each child to aspire to reach their full potential.
We help children to become physically confident, developing their knowledge of health and fitness along the way.
We ensure children understand the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle and how being physically active can have a positive effect on both their physical and mental well-being.
As a school, we ensure all pupils are exposed to and have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of physical activities both individually and as part of a team.
We provide opportunities so that all children take part in healthy competition and through this build their self-esteem and develop sportsmanship skills such as respect, fair-play, collaboration and how to work as part of a team.
Equally, we enable children to deepen their understanding of their own culture as well as others by facilitating direct links between PE and the wider curriculum.
Our aim is for all children to be given the opportunity to be physically active for 60 minutes a day through PE lessons, completion of the Daily Mile, active playtimes, lessons and extra-curricular activities.
