At Kenton Bar Primary School, we place a great emphasis on the importance of Physical Education within our curriculum. Physical Education contributes to our health and emotional well-being, which supports and facilitates our academic and social development.
In our Early Years Foundation Stage, we aim to:
- Develop the co-ordination and control of our pupils to enable them to demonstrate a variety of movements and handle equipment and tools proficiently
Develop their ability to move in a range of ways and negotiate space safely and effectively.
In Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, children study the National Curriculum for Physical Education and we aim to:
- Inspire all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities
Provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness
Provide opportunities for children to compete in sport and other activities
Build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
Provide regular opportunities for our children to be physically active for sustained periods of time.
