A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that: ‘all pupils develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities; are physically active for sustained periods of time; engage in competitive sports and activities; lead healthy, active lives.
At Gunness and Burringham Church of England Primary School we enthuse and inspire our children to participate fully and develop a life-long love of physical activity, sport and exercise. Our aim is to provide a broad and balanced curriculum that will benefit all children and equip them with the key knowledge and skills in 6 main areas of learning: net and wall games, dance, invasion games, gymnastics. athletics and striking and fielding.
Our curriculum enables children to understand the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle and equips them with the tools to do so through health and wellbeing education. Personal development will also be enhanced through our PE curriculum by promoting team work, resilience, leadership, motivation and creativity.
