• To provide all children with positive, regular physical learning experiences in a supportive environment;
  • To contribute positively to the children developing an active and healthy lifestyle
  • To develop resilience in an alternative setting to the classroom;
  • To develop the children's individual skills so that they can successfully participate in a wide variety of games, sports and physical activities;
  • To offer at least two hours per week of physical education with a balance of indoor, outdoor and specialist provision;
  • To encourage and develop team work and sportsmanship;
  • To expose them to a wide range of physical activities which may promote a happy and healthy lifestyle when they grow up.


We adopt a skills approach to teaching PE, ensuring that our children develop the necessary skills to become lifelong participators in physical activity. Younger children start by being introduced to basic fundamental movement skills in a variety of ways such as: running, throwing, catching, jumping and balancing and personal expression in dance. As they get older, the children develop more sport specific-skills, such as chest/bounce passes in order to play netball.

Each PE session will have its own learning objective/s but the six values, which form the 'Spirit of the Games' (the legacy from the London Olympics 2012), underpin our teaching and link closely to our PSHE curriculum. The six values are:

  • Determination
  • Honesty
  • Passion
  • Self-Belief
  • Respect
  • Teamwork
