The Beeches Primary School

    Physical Education


    It is our intent for the Physical Education curriculum to inspire all children to enjoy, succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. We will provide opportunities for children to become physically confident in a way, which supports their health and fitness. We will provide our children with opportunities to compete in sport and other activities to build character and help to embed core values such as fairness and respect. This is achieved through weekly lessons, daily clubs and the daily mile, where children and staff complete a socially relevant piece of exercise.

    We will strive to ensure that every child exceeds their potential and the impact of our PE curriculum will allow our children to live a healthy and active lifestyle. In Key Stage 1, the children will develop fundamental skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. The children will engage in competitive and co-operative physical activities, in a range of challenging situations. Over the year, the children will take part in a variety of games, gymnastics and dance activities.

     In Key Stage 2, the children will continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and link them to make actions and sequences in movement. We will provide the children with plenty of opportunities to allow them to enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing. Throughout the year, the children will have the opportunity to take part in a variety of games, gymnastics and dance. Year 3 and 4 children will be taught to swim competently, confidently and proficiently.

    The school enters every competition that we can reasonable attend, including accessibility events for children with physical needs.
