Physical Education

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.
