At Senacre Wood Primary School, we strive to provide a physical education that encourages participation in physical activities and healthy active lives. Across our curriculum, we aim to provide a wide range of opportunities to help our pupils develop confidence when taking part in physical activities. We place importance upon the character values of fairness and respect that are intrinsic to sport.
Using the National Curriculum for PE, we aim to ensure that all pupils:
In essence, we would like all pupils at Senacre Wood Primary to take away positive experiences from their PE lessons that will encourage them to engage with physical activities outside of school. Pupils should build upon and develop skills year upon year demonstrating a good understanding of a range of sports and other physical activities. PE lessons should provide many fantastic opportunities for pupils to demonstrate their sense of teamwork, fairness and respect.
For details of how we implement this within our school and how we measure the impact, please read our PE policy.
