Statement of Intent
Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of a dynamic and creative intellectual activity - JFK
PE develops pupils’ physical competence and confidence, and their ability to use these to perform in a range of activities. It promotes physical skilfulness, physical development and knowledge of the body in action. PE provides opportunities for pupils to be creative, competitive and to face up to different challenges as individuals and in groups and teams. It promotes positive attitudes towards active and healthy life styles. Pupils learn how to think in different ways to suit a wide variety of creative, competitive and challenging activities. They learn how to plan perform and evaluate actions, ideas and performances to improve their quality and effectiveness. Through this process pupils discover their aptitudes, abilities and preferences, and make choices about how to get involved in lifelong love of moving.
