Physical education promotes an understanding in children of their bodies in action. It involves thinking, selecting and applying skills, and promotes positive attitudes towards a healthy lifestyle. It is an important aspect in wellbeing and mental health and we believe that the pupils at Broomley First School, should be provided with the skills and expertise to access whichever sport they choose.
Our intention is that our PE curriculum will inspire all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. We aim to develop children’s knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of areas. A varied curriculum is in place to support this, with activities including: dance, athletics, gymnastics, fencing, swimming and water safety and outdoor adventure activities.
We ensure children have the opportunities to compete in sport and other activities to build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect. Our children are given opportunities to compete at both a school level and an inter-school level, and we strive to provide opportunities to alternative sports and activities to allow all children to enjoy sports and a healthy lifestyle.
